I can deliver impressive panoramic photographs of landscapes, formal gardens, architecture & vertical photos of buildings. How?………..
I shoot mainly using a Linhof 617 Panoramic Camera which produces an image, on film that is on a par (usually exceeds) the resolution of most of the digital camera systems available at the moment.
This allows for fantastic detail, stunning depth of field and prints that will easily go to 6ftx2ft and much larger.
Images that demand attention.
I’m always on the look out for interesting subjects so if you have a photographic commission that would respond to the joys of film, please get in touch and we can see what’s possible.
The extreme panoramic format of the Linhof Technorama reflects the sense of space and depth. The camera produces an image that is far beyond normal visualisation.
Shooting with the Technorama 617 means: seeing more – showing more.
Impressive panoramic scenes but also creative vertical sights of surprising dimensions. The extreme format with its dramatic 3 : 1 aspect ratio guarantees extremely high rendition which can normally only be achieved with a 5 x 7 in. large format view camera. The Technorama is a hand-held rollfilm camera with a picture format of 6 x 17 cm combining three 6 x 6 images in one shot. This equipment can still be used when big large format view cameras cannot making it the ideal choice whether you are on the highest mountains, the hottest deserts or simply in ordinary urban shooting situations. The Technorama 617s III is a system camera: Presently five interchangeable Schneider lenses with integrated helical focusing mounts are available. From the extreme wide angle 72 mm up to longer focal lengths of 250 mm. The rugged light alloy die-cast body is extremely stable offering optimum film flatness for conventional high resolution rollfilm 120 (4 frames) or rollfilm 220 (8 frames).

Linhof starts a new chapter of the Technorama 617 success story. Now intelligent shifting is part of the camera system. Perspective control, architectural and urban photos without converging lines, shifting of the horizontal line off the image center – freedom for the creative photographer!
The Linhof Shift Adapter with wide angle lenses 72, 90 and 110 mm offering an extremely wide shift range of 28 mm (14 mm each up and down). The Shift Adapter can be used with all existing Technorama bodies accepting interchangeable lenses.
The Linhof Technorama is a 6×17 cm rollfilm panoramic camera. It was briefly discontinued by Linhof with the introduction of the 612PC, as Linhof thought the 6×12 format was sufficient, but was brought back by popular demand and has since gone through two more revisions, the S II and S III. The camera provides sweeping panoramic views with a 3:1 aspect ratio providing 4 exposures on 120 rollfilm, or 8 on 220 rollfilm. The camera is widely used for panorama and vertical-shots in landscape, architecture, industry and creative imaging.
The standard lens is a Schneider Super Angulon 90 mm/5.6 with a between-lens shutter, utilizing a center filter to optimize light transmission across the broad film format. The camera is equipped with a bright-line optical finder with parallax correction frame lines. The camera body is made of die-cast metal and is designed to offer optimum film flatness with conventional rollfilm.
