Can’t afford a Horizon camera? Want a camera that can switch from panorama and normal mode? Want quality from a $3 camera? This is what you need!
In my opinion, this is a Vivitar PN2011 clone, the only huge difference is the look. You’ll be carrying a bright yellow camera around, but its not entirely yellow. Here are the serious technical details:
-Camera Type : Panorama / normal 2 way 35mm camera
- Film Format : Panoramic 13 × 36mm, Normal 24 × 36mm
- Lens : F28mm, F/ 8.0, Shooting range : 1m – infinity
- Shutter : Mechanical shutter
- Shutter Speed : 1/125 sec.
- Viewfinder : Reserve Galilean Type
- Dimensions : 39 × 68.5 × 106 mm.
- Tripod Socket
I modified this camera to do multiple exposures, and I have a keychain to allow that feature. This camera surprised me, it came cheap, so I didn’t think it would take good pictures. Fortunately, it does! Pretty sharp for a $3 camera if you ask me. I love how I can switch from panorama and normal at any time of shooting a roll with it, more fun with the multi-exposure modification. It’s made out of plastic, so take care of it, but if in case it breaks, just buy another one! I actually have a spare with me, because it was cheap so I was thinking to myself, “why not?!”
I enjoy shooting panorama with this, I know its “fake” panorama, but it satisfies my need to have panoramic shots. I can’t afford the Horizon (at the moment). Although, sometimes the panorama flap doesn’t set in well, therefore creating a slanting panorama line. I don’t mind though, adds a ’lil flavor to the shot.
Overall I’d recommend this camera to you, you won’t be disappointed by the pictures it can take!
