    Kodak Panoram No. 4 Model C.

    Hi
    Recently acquired one of the above, the swing mechanism is not working properly otherwise in excellent condition including the bellows, any advice or links that might help me to get it to work properly would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Tony - You might post your question in the APUG Panoramic forum. Also if you do a search there you will find a few posts on Kodak Panorams. Or just go through the back forum pages; there aren't all that many to skim through. It isn't a very active forum so it may take a few days before any replies come in.

    You live on the Isle of Man? So you get to see the TT every year? I'm extremely envious!

    Hi Len
    Thanks for the apug link, I will take a look and see if I can find anything, having attended the TT both as a spectator and working as a photographer for around 50 years I kind of lost interest following the death of yer man Joey Dunlop I still follow the races on Manx radio and occasionally attend some of the events.

    Tony - You might contact Jamie Young and ask if he has any links to Panoram repair information.

    I found this thread:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum147/...k-panoram.html

    I read though only the first few pages so I don't know if anyone posted anything that may help you.

    I've always wanted a Panoram, but I know if I buy one it will be a project camera and I already have way too many projects. It would be nice to find a No. 1 that can use 120 film but everyone else must have the same idea as those seem to be more expensive than the larger models.

    I'm shooting the first roll with a Horizon 202 I got off eBay last week. It seems to be working okay but I won't know about banding and light leaks until I develop the film. When I bid on it I was actually thinking of looking for a Panoram instead, but the Horizon was working and cheap.

    I understand what you are saying about the TT. I think that is why I'm just a casual follower of the races. It is hard not to have mixed feelings about something that dangerous. I'm a fan of Guy Martin and it is rather a relief to hear he plans to not race in 2016.

    Hi Len
    Thanks for the links, I have read about 4 of the APUG pages so far, very interesting but nothing of practical help so far, my Panoram #4 has been converted to use 120 film so I am hoping to get the shutter working properly so I can shoot with it just for fun really, I too have a Horizon 202 which I find works well providing I dont get over ambitious with print size.

    Tony
