We don't have the tunnel vision the average photographic camera has accustomed us with.
Our set of eyes/brain is not working as the "normal" 50mm SLR camera lens is.
We live immersed in a sensation of a wider space, thanks to the simultaneous use of two eyes and lateral vision.
These are the thoughts which came to my mind when I started taking pictures with a panorama camera. And I had the feeling that I was rendering the scene in front of me in a more realistic way. I was having a sensation of space, of being immersed into it.
All this is possible to render with panorama cameras (the Russian Horizon 202 in my case), with an angle of 120°.
The 35 mm film (in the smaller and cheaper versions) receives light from a rotating 28mm lens, giving a 58x24 mm negative per each shot.
Beautiful. Too bad there is no way of doing this with digital nowadays ...
