On the heels of the successful SW-612 series, the Horseman SW-617 Camera incorporates many of the winning elements of its predecessors. The SW-612 Pro's lens movement feature and compact size have remained, while the size of the body has not been dramatically increased. The SW-617 gives users the option to create panoramic photographs with an interchangeable 6x17cm or 6x12cm film back. This camera is the first 6x17 panoramic camera to feature a removable back.

The SW-617 has six interchangeable Schneider and Rodenstock lenses to build an optical library from; these lenses span the range from 72mm to 250mm. Horseman sets these lenses in their own precisely-engineered helical focusing mounts, that in turn, are attached to a lens cone appropriate for the lens. Focusing a lens on the SW-617 is aided by an accurate distance and depth-of-field scale on the helicoid, otherwise scale-focusing can be bypassed by substituting the film back with an optional ground glass back (#21466) for the most accurate focus and composition.

As stated earlier, The SW-617 is bestowed with rise/fall movements. This is possible with the use of carefully selected lenses with generous image circles. Any of the six Horseman SW lens units are capable of 17mm of rise and 17mm of fall. Rise/fall movements are extremely useful with work that requires perspective correction like architecture and landscape photography.

This kit includes the Horseman SW-617 body, 90mm f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL, matching viewfinder and 6x17cm film back.
