Photographic equipment manufacturer PANON introduced the Widelux series back in 1958 until 2000.
It shoots panoramic shots from a 35mm film. This very unique capability produces unique shots with an amazing look and field of view. The subject is drawn into the image with a wide sense of space. This unique perspective is usually used for landscapes but can be a great tool for portraits as well.
It is a mechanical film camera that uses a unique fixed focus 26mm swing lens with a slit that pivots and acts as the shutter. It has a 126-degree field of view with an image size of 24x59mm. The negatives are 2 times the width of a standard 35mm frame. The Widelux is a very simple viewfinder camera as it has only three shutter speeds: 1/15, 1/125, and 1/250 plus f-numbers from 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, to 11. There is no exposure meter, focus system, or flash to help the photographer, so the settings are pretty basics but also pretty easy to go through.
Throughout the years the Panon Widelux has reached a cult following, with some famous photographers making it their main photographic tool. As an example, see this review from photographer Peter Levitan : review.
