    Can you identify this panoramic camera?

    Anyone know what this is? Saw at a camera dealers, and while itís way beyond me, love was in the air. Comes with some sort of film back.. maybe 7x17?

    That was auto spellcheck mistake!

    Of course it’s a Korona with their signature spring back.

    I have the 7x17. Very lightweight.

    A caution, film holders can prove to be difficult to source and most importantly FIT.

    It is best to buy the camera with holders.

    There are a lot of threads here about that.

    Hard to tell for sure because of the angle, but from the aspect ratio and the size relative to the hand, it looks as though it could be the Korona 12x20 banquet camera.

    Maybe not Central Camera, but that would be the most logical location.

    The floor is wrong, but their floors vary.

    Here are pics by Amy from inside CC in 2012, https://foursquare.com/v/central-cam...64a52044dc1fe3

    Hey Oren having owned a 8x20 Korona Panoramic and being I own a 12x20 Korona Banquet camera I can say with 100% assurances this is NOT a 12x20 Banquet camera. The Banquet camera only has a hinged front extension with no provisions for adding an extension to the rear track of the camera bed. Not to mention the size as the 12x20 is much larger hunk when pulled from it's case.

    Fair 'nuf! I just put a ruler to the screen, and it looks like my eyes were deceiving me - the aspect ratio seems within bounds for the panoramic cameras after all. Sorry for the inadequately-baked speculation... ...and thank you for the correction!

    My own Korona is a 7x17.
