If you already have an Horizon Kompakt like myself, or an Horizon Perfekt, congratulations! You are a very lucky person and you already have everything you need to follow this tip!

The hardest part is done. Either by saving piggies, nagging loved ones when your birthday is coming or working like a dog to save for it, you got it! You have a great Horizon camera! Now, load a film in it and just tilt that baby!

This is a very easy and simple tipster but I find the results truly rewarding. I guess you can use it with any camera but with the Horizon, it makes very unique pictures.

I really like looking through the viewfinder of this camera, I even insist on other people to look through it. I think it was when I was enjoying myself looking at everything through my Horizon viewfinder that I tilted the camera and…found out a great image! Since than, I do it once in a while. And I can’t get tired! Some of my favorite Horizon shots were taken with the camera tilted.

All you have to do is grab your Horizon camera and incline it to the left or to the right, facing up or down, you choose. If you want to catch two subjects in the frame and you can’t do it with the camera standing right in a usual panoramic picture, just tilt it!

The Horizon Kompakt makes it easy for everyone to shoot fantastic panoramic images. With fixed focus and aperture settings, all you have to do is point and shoot! Get your own Horizon Kompakt now!
