Panoramas with a plastic lens? Read on to find out more about this Vivitar camera!
Don’t let the diminutive price tag, plastic body and lens fool you. At 10 dollars at most, this unassuming star takes fairly sharp images of panoramas you want to capture with its focus free capability just wind it up and let the light do the rest . What I enjoy most about this camera is the ability to switch from normal mode to panoramic mode with just a flick of a switch. What this means to me is that I can do regular and panoramic shots all in the same roll. When at the “P” mode a mask covers the top and bottom area of the lens as well as the view finder giving you an idea on how you can compose your shot if you’re into that sort of thing still. There’s also a tripod socket underneath for those steady shots. It takes all sorts of 35mm film and does wonders for red scaled shots. The built is quite solid I must say for a cheapo plastic cam the aperture and shutter speed are set to f/8 and 1/125.The lens is pretty sharp too.
It does awesome with red scaled film
You can convert it into a pinhole camera with half an hour worth of tinkering
