    How about driving a plywood car? Maybe you can make one at home.

    Well, it's not plywood, but if you get the power unit at a motorcycle junk yard, you could build this for not much more now than 23 years ago:

    Like the pano head, it's a lot more useful than what I could afford...
    If a contact print at arm's length is too small to see, you need a bigger camera. :D
