617 Panorama Gallery

Photos exhibited here are taken with Art Panorama 170 (617 Panorama camera), or Toyo Field 45A large format camera plus Art Panorama 170 holder (617 roll film holder). You can get Panoramic image by cutting upper and lower part of image taken with 35mm SLR or digital SLR, but quality of pure 617 image, recorded on 56 x 172mm film size, is fabulous and scanned digital data (@3200dpi) reaches to 150 million pixels. Super wide angle lens for SLR (retro focus type) has big barrel distortion and deforms very edge of images but that for large format camera (biogon type) has no such characteristics. Therefore, 617 Panorama image gives you very natural feel even in extreme edge in spite of super wide angle of view.

Photos are displayed on pop-up window worked by JavaScript and the image will be automatically fit to browser window size, thus I recommend you to turn JavaScript effective and to expand browser window to full screen.
