This photograph was shot with a 35mm Widelux  Camera –  a swing lens panoramic camera.

The 26mm lens of the camera pivots in a horizontal arc to create the panorama.

I’ve worked with both the Widelux F series (35mm) and the Widelux 1500 Model (Medium format 120mm film)

Fun fact: The filmaker Stanley Kubrick and the actor Jeff Bridges both did books of their Widelux photographs.

The camera is no longer made.  Widelux ended production in the year 2000.


The photograph was shot with B&W infra-red film; the Widelux camera was loaded in a light-tight darkroom; a changing bag would have been used in the field to re-load film.
