The Horizon Perfekt Panoramic Camera from Lomography is a unique camera that offers maximum creative flexibility with a full range of aperture and shutter settings, enabling precise exposure every time. Its advanced clockwork mechanics and the built-in accessories allow you to capture majestic panoramic pictures on your terms. With a 28mm multi-coated glass swing lens. The Horizon's shutter charges the camera's battery-free clockwork mechanics, and touching the shutter release begins the exposure process. As the lens moves from side to side, a narrow vertical slit between the lens and film rotates along with it... thereby progressively exposing the film as the lens moves and delivers images with a full 120° perspective. Each shot yields a 58mm long negative (about double the length of a standard 35mm).
The camera has a aperture range of f/2.8 to f/16 allowing you to control your depth-of-field. It also has a blazing 1/500 second top shutter speed to freeze action on the brightest days of the year. A slow 1/2 second shutter speed brings partially lit night and gloomy indoor scenes into glowing brilliance. You can also control the swing lens speed with a day and night setting. Users can uncouple the camera shutter release to allow easy multiple exposures on the same frame.
Multi-coated 28mm Glass Lens
The heart of the Horizon Kompakt is its multi-element, multi-coated 28mm glass lens that yields sharp images with vivid colors and rich contrast.
Cocking the Horizon's shutter charges the clockwork mechanics, and touching the shutter release sets the lens into motion. As the lens swings from side to side, a narrow vertical slit between the lens and film rotates along with it - thereby progressively exposing the film as the lens moves.
Variable Aperture Settings
From a wide-open f/2.8 to a teensy tiny f/16, you can dial in your precise aperture setting to get the optimum exposure for each shot. Controlling the depth of field is also right at your fingertips - a large aperture yields a sharp subject against a blurry background, and smaller apertures make sharp pictures all throughout.
Variable Shutter Settings
A blazing 1/500 second top shutter speed allows you to freeze the action on bright days and a slow 1/2 second shutter speed brings partially lit night and gloomy indoor scenes into glowing brilliance.
Built-in Pro Accessories
The camera has a cable release and tripod thread, and includes a hand grip, so you're guaranteed shake-free pictures. The bubble-eye level through the viewfinder allows you to perfectly place the "horizon" of each photograph.
Easy Double Exposures
Users can fire the shutter as many times as desired without advancing the film. The uncoupled advance enables double, triple, quadruple, or more exposures on the same frame.
Battery Free Operation
The Horizon Kompakt is powered by a classic clockwork motor...no batteries required.
Uses All Varieties of 35-mm Films
Use whatever you like - all 35mm color negative, slide, black & white, or redscale film can be loaded into your Horizon camera.
Two Years Limited Warranty
The Lomographic Society International guarantees your Horizon Kompakt to be free of manufacturer defects for two full years after purchase. This does not include misuse, abuse, or dropping the camera.
