    Looks like a supersampler in shape and with the rip cord, but with a hot shoe and two wind knobs! Very odd!

    It seems like a cheaper version of the Kompakt. But that's just me.

    It looks like a Horizon kompact and fish eye joined together, hahahaha

  25. neja
    neja ·

    looks like it has 2 lenses... maybe something 3D related?

  26. clickiemcpete
    clickiemcpete ·

    OK, so you can take two rolls of film at the same time and create funky overlaps?

    panoramic 120 film camera with a posibility to switch to 35mm with sprocket hole exposure. thats why there is a rewind thing - you can rewind a 120 film too (like Lubitel 166+). so it makes huge 6x9 or more negatives like holga 120wpc except it is not a pinhole. and it has a really wide lens i hope. like 18mm or less in equivalent to 35mm frame.

  29. ghidini

    It obviously works with 2 film rolls. But how? No ideia.

  30. peteparker
    peteparker ·

    Maybe a camera that help us to make doubles ?!? the roll can be moved back and forth ?

    It's probably something Russian-esque, it looks like the outline of a Kiev 4. That thing hanging down is likely a pin for something, I doubt it's a ripcord. I think maybe the rocket was supposed to be some kind of Cold War/Soviet Era reference.

  35. nation_of_pomation
    nation_of_pomation ·

    Wait, nevermind, someone spoiled it up there. I was right aesthetically.

  36. claytonh

    Fisheye with a ripcord that shows the sprockets with also doing panoramic (if you want).
    Whatever it is I want to test It!

  37. reneg88
    reneg88 ·

    wow, i bet it's gonna be like $300 or more...

  38. frkdanger

    Panoramic Sprocket Rocket it is!

  39. vicuna

    looks like an old fashioned Horizon... love the style... hope it's not too expensive...

  40. armillio
  41. mikailus
    mikailus ·

    It's an SLR camera that uses 120 film.

  42. spendospend
    spendospend ·

    Looks like a Horizon with 2 winders either side, so you can wind back and multi expose? i want 2 test it!!!!

  43. spendospend
    spendospend ·

    ohhh its a sprocket rocket!! looks coooooool, i want i want i want!!!

    I'd hope you'd make an LCA with a range finder, how good would that be? Contax T good that's how good, but that's probably just a wasted dream of a wanna be street photographer.

    It'll all depend on how much it costs. It's either this or a spinner!

  49. rav_bunneh
    rav_bunneh ·

    I don't think there is a tripod mount or a place for neck straps to hook, which seems odd. But it looks really cool from what little I can see. I'm looking forward to the launch!! :3

  50. antibiotyx
    antibiotyx ·

    i wonder how much it costs too. hopefully, it's affordable. i want one!

  51. mini_disco
    mini_disco ·

    I don't know about this one. I think Spinner is way much cooler. I hope I'm wrong.

  52. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    looks like this camera is a kind of "mix" of the Horizon and spinner: panoramic (how wide angle??) with picture size of a Horizon (as large??) but with sprockets like the spinner... But unlike those 2 it's not a rotating camera, so it's a different kind of shooting. I hope we can expect different exposure times and aperture choice..? Answers coming soon...

    panoramic camera using 120 film??!!

  54. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    I don't think it's 120 as there are no sprockets on it and there's no rewind knob needed for 120 film...

  55. eva_eva

  56. mikailus

    @vicuna "there's no rewind knob needed for 120 film..." Yes there are. My Lubitel 166+ for example!

  57. lomojoekie
    lomojoekie ·

    No there isn't...... You don't rewind the film back omto the film spool itself.. You advance it onto the pick up spool... In short: you don't need a rewind knob for 120 film. ;-) no biggy, just a correction ;-)

  58. limlomo
    limlomo ·

    maybe it's a rewind horizon

  59. lomojoekie
    lomojoekie ·

    Now that would be cool! It could also be something like an analog sweep panorama camera. Wind up a coil... Let it go, and sweep the camera in every possible direction ;-)
