closing a door

Last summer one chapter of camera history closed. The Noblex factory in Dresden stopped the maintenance of their panoramic camera. Professor Kunze showed me on his last day of work how it's done and then he closed the door. I was his last customer!

    this noblex is a 35mm panoramic camera right Willie? or 120?

    @adi_totp they had both. They started, I think, in 1992 with 120mm and in 1996 with 35 mm, which they continued doing until 2002. Since then they only maintained and did other optical instruments. I would say, their product was too good to be economical. it's kind of a shame, but I am happy, that they exsisted at all...
