Attention Panorama Photographers
Can't afford a Hasselblad Xpan?
All those moving parts in a Noblex make you nervous?
(What, you worry about Murphy's Law when you are about to take that great shot?)
Student on a limited budget?
But you want a wide 35mm negative, right?
And you want it cheap!
The good news is ...
Yes, you can have it!

The advantages of the 35mm film format are that the film is available almost everywhere, it is relatively inexpensive (you can even get it in 100 foot rolls,) it can be processed at many locations, and it is available in a lot of different types and speeds. This means that you can shoot a lot of pictures at low cost, and since a standard 35mm negative can scan to 13.7 megapixels (24X36@3200DPI,) you can also get high-resolution digital images, plus when used in the panorama mode you can double or triple that. This manual will show you how to do this.
