Why Aim For Perfection When You Can Go Kompakt by lakandula

I could still remember opening the big box and sensing the smell of the well-kept brown leather case as a prelude to a wonderful Lomo adventure with my Russian panoramic cam. I knew from the very first roll I took that I made the right choice. And Kompakt has been keeping my company in many phototrips with it hanging on my neck thanks to my ingenious tape-measure-turned-camera-strap.

The Perfekt Perfekt by gvelasco

Shooting with the Perfekt is a joy. The camera feels great and all of the controls are easy to get to. The viewfinder is clear and accurate, and the built-in spirit level that you can see through the viewfinder is extremely convenient. The hand grip works very well, but I find myself forgoing it and just remembering to keep my fingers out of the picture. The camera is surprisingly quiet – not stealthy, not not distracting either. The fast lens means that I can usually use a fast enough shutter speed to hand-hold the camera in most situations.

Over the Horizon, or How the Horizon Kompakt is Amazing. by sinvertigo

I try to take the camera in all the travels I do, and believe me, if you take this camera with you, you won’t take bad photos anymore. All the photos you take, are great panoramic images, full of awesomeness.

Horizon Perfekt Makes Me Mr. Popular written by stef1225 and translated by coolsigg

To be honest, when I wasn’t so familiar with the Horizon Perfekt, I was wary of its heavy weight, and I don’t know what types of photos it can produce; I even told my friend that having a Sprocket Rocket is good enough for me, I don’t think I will need this. Little did I know that I changed my mind completely after a trial run.
