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.|
