Pre-Owned Fotoman 617 Panoramic Camera + Schneider Super-Angulon 90mm F8.0 + Sinar Sinaron-S 180mm F5.6 + Accessories


Pre-Owned Fotoman 617 Panoramic Camera + Schneider Super-Angulon 90mm F8.0 + Sinar Sinaron-S 180mm F5.6 & accessories in Excellent Condition. This camera has been left with us by a long-standing and trusted client.

In the world of photography, panoramic cameras occupy a very select and niche market and medium format cameras are even rarer. 6x12cm, 6x17cm and even 6x24cm are available but 6x17cm is the format of choice. As much to do with the size and aspect ratio, and it’s easier to shoot. On 120 film, 6x17cm gives the users 4x shots per roll and it’s also capable of being printed on a 5×4″ format enlarger.

If the range of the panoramic formats was unfamiliar so were the number of manufacturers. Companies like Linhof, Horseman, Art Panorama and Fuji have been the most well know. The early 2000’s, saw the arrival of competitors from China. Two new companies, Shen-Hao and Fotoman quickly gained interest for their inexpensive products. Over a number of years they have been refined and quality has much improved. They provide a very usable and affordable alternative to other makers.

The Fotoman 617 is manufactured from a solid block of aluminium and thus has very high torsional rigidity. Essential when trying to keep the body from flexing. This matters when even tiny changes in the body shape may affect the focus and sharpness. The body is capable of taking differing lenses, which are mounted on a lens tube. The lens tube is held in place with four screws. It’s very secure and users have the option of changing lenses in the field.

Lenses are mounted onto the lens tube with a focus mount. The focus mount is specially calibrated for each lens. The supplied range finder allows for focusing distances to be set on the lens manually. Even greater critical focus is achieved by using a ground glass screen.

The camera is supplied with two lenses, both fitted to focusing mounts and lens tubes. The Schneider Super-Angulon 90mm F8.0 lens. It’s a multi-coated lens fitted to a Copal 0 lens shutter. The Sinar Sinaron-S 180mm F5.6 is also multi-coated and fitted with a Compur 1 lens shutter. The 180mm has been tested and evaluated by Sinar as being amongst the best. A comprehensive kit supplied with many accessories.

It’s in excellent condition with some signs of use. Both lenses have clean optics with no indication of dust or haze. Focusing mounts are smooth and well damped. Shutter speeds have been tested and are accurate.
