Click here to see the Hexomniscope under construction

The Hexomniscope prototype has been finished. It is an all metal six-pinhole roll film camera producing 360 degree panoramas. Features include:

-Variable focal length (each pinhole independent). This allows the user to vary the amount of image overlap that occurs between adjacent pinholes.

-Shutters can independently be turned on or off but have a single release.

-Produce four 2 1/4x7 inch images on 120 roll film. Since the shutters are independent other image sizes will be possible.

The camera comes apart in two halves, shown above. The inner half, shown on the left, will contain the film transport mechanism. In addition, to facilitate film loading, a film spool cassette is removable from the inner half. The outer half contains the pinholes and shutter mechanism.
