I found a picture of this camera, a Horizon S3 U-500, (I've personally never seen anything like it before) and did some research. It turns out its a specially designed camera to take wide (but not distorted) panoramic shots on film.
I'm wondering if there's any kind of digital camera that can do this with more consistent results. Examples I've seen seem to be fairly inconsistent in quality but that could just be operator error.
Additionally; I don't quite understand how this camera works so if anyone could explain it'd be much appreciated.
