Horseman boastsing a long history and tradition as a medium and large format camera manufacturer, has created the super panorama camera in their SW series - the "Horseman SW617 Professional".
Its features include an ultra wide 6 x 17 cm image with the high image quality of large-sized photographs and camera movements to allow even more professional rendering of images.
The optional ground glass back also allows critical focusing and compositioning. Choose from six types of dedicated lens units to support a variety of scenes.
The Horseman SW617 Pro gives you the freedom of rise and fall movements up to a maximum of 34 mm (Rise/upward direction: 17 mm, Fall/downward direction: 17 mm), which can be achieved by moving the lens up and down. This enables natural perspective control that is effective in architectural and interior photography.
Horseman SW617 roll film holders are available in two formats, 6x17cm (120 roll film/4 exposures) and 6x12cm* (120 roll film/6 exposures), and can be attached to the back of the camera unit.
The locking levers on either side of the camera body enable you to attach and detach them. Providing an extra roll film holder in advance will allow you to take your next photograph immediately, without having to load another film.
You can attach an optional ground glass back for the critical focusing and compositioning to the place the roll film holder is mounted.
The Horseman SW617 Pro lens unit lineup fea tures a total of six types* of lens units from two renowned German brands, Schneider and Rodenstock, who pride themselves on their state-of-the-art imaging capability.
In addition, Horseman has independently developed a dedicated helical mount to produce high accuracy in visual measurements. Each lens comes with a distance scale and a depth-of-field scale.
