Widepan Pro II - The Panoramic Monster


„What the f…?“ is the most common reaction of people I know. People I don`t know start to lapse in an everlasting gaze when they see this kind of monster. Sometimes I was asked if I am some kind of topographer and when you tell people that this is „just“ a camera follows the everlasting gaze again.

This two and a half kilo thing has a focusable 50mm lens which swings from left to right and covers 140 degrees. You can choose apertures settings from 3.8 till 22, shutter speeds are 1/250, 1/60 and ½ second. Day or night, feel free to shoot when ever you want to. There is a multi-exposure button as well, which allows you to shoot on one frame as often as you want to. It gobbles 120`s, 220`s and with adapter kit even 35mm, the loot will be small, but the results are amazing. A 120 will give you six, a 220 twelve and a 35mm ten nice pictures. If you use slide, negative, b&w or even IR is up to you.

So why the Widepan Pro II? It`s heavy, big and definitely not as handy as a Horizon is. But the results are amazing, brilliant shots, panoramas in medium format you can boost up to wallpapers. I`ll never regret choosing this camera because of the diversity of possibilities it opens to me.
