The Horizon Perfekt Panoramic Dream Machine


120 degrees of delicious FULL panoramic vision! The Horizon Perfekt is all that you can ever ask for in an analogue camera!

First of all, this camera looks totally fantastic – as if transported to earth by some uber starlight scientists from a distant space aged alien nano technology sky station – it truly feels wonderful in your hands. The smooth ergonomically curves, integrate person to camera seamlessly. Point of fact, whenever I go out & shoot with the Lomography Horizon I always have peeps stop me and ask me questions – even when I shot my very first roll – I was shooting down by the bridge on Newcastle Quayside and 3 total strangers came up to me asking me what it was … great fun and just took a little bit explaining :)

Ok so let me tell you a few things just in case you know nothing about this camera at all. It uses 35mm film – any 35mm film that you can get your hands on. I advise you read the instructions and see how to load the film – looks more complex than it actually is – and once you get the hang of it – it’s really easy! You have a choice of how fast you want that lens to open and swing across – again read the manual – it’s really really easy.

It’s totally fantastic fun to use and you can hand hold night shots with ease. If you feel unsteady, then just lean against a wall or whatever you can find – or yeah you can if you want to place the camera on a tripod and use a cable release, if that makes you feel better. You can check out the Galleries or the Microsite
for more info on this little gem.

Alrighty! I have added to this gallery the first few rolls of film that I shot with the Horizon Perfekt plus some shots that I took a year or so after getting it – I am thrilled with what this camera can do. I highly recommend it and if you’re ever thinking to treat yourself to something – well this is it. You can use it as a snap shot camera and you can shoot from the hip!

So think it over! And if you got a buzz and tingle from seeing horizon images this is always a good indication! Follow your heart and get yourself some Perfekt love – life is short so hell you may as well live it!
