Hello! This project is a 35mm panoramic film camera. I decided to use the lens of a Polaroid camera since it produces a 7.9x7.9 cm (3.1x3.1 inches) image. Using a 35mm film I am able to achieve a 2:6 ratio image (24x72mm instead of 24x36mm).
Printing the files:
A 0.4 nozzle can be used to print almost all files. The door (5) can be printed with a bigger nozzle. Parts 8, 10, 11, 12 and 13 should be printed with a 0.2/0.3 nozzle since detail is required.
Supports are needed for the body (4) and parts 11 and 13.
Adding a brim is needed for parts 11 and 13 (should be printed vertically).
You can print the files however you want. Keep in mind that I didn't uploaded them in an specific way.
To take into account:
Part 13 is used to advance the film when moving part 12. While part 11 should move freely (maybe sanding is required), part 13 should fit tightly in order to compensate the tension of the film. You need to move clockwise part 12 to advance the film. When doing so, parts 11, 10 and 8 are also moving. The ratio between gears is carefully studied so when a whole picture is advanced gear2 (8) is turning one round (a white mark is drawn in my camera to show me when a lap is finished).
As you can appreciate in the image, I used tape in the top part of the camera to show the angle of the resulting image. It is achieved by removing the door and placing a paper where the film should be placed. Now, the lens enables you to see the framing you are getting. Use tape or any type of mark to indicate that angle. That same technique could be used to mark the vertical angle on a side of the body.
Once I revealed the film I noticed some light leaking. In addition to the glue you should use to join all the pieces (except for parts 1, 2, 5 and 7), and despite I carefully designed all parts, dark tape is recommended to close the door since I used a transparent one.
Parts 3, 4 and 6 are meant to be glued together. Before doing it, parts 11 and 13 should be introduced in the corresponding place.
Parts 8 and 9, 10 and 11, and 12 and 13 should be glued together making sure they turn freely.
Taking a photo:
Since this camera is using a manual shutter you are the one opening and closing it. That's why the diaphragm is a 4mm diameter hole. This size is approximately equivalent to f/16. Combining a small aperture and a low ASA/ISO film you are able to take a photo in a time greater than a second.
You will also find a 7.5mm hole file in case you are in really low light situations, but I highly suggest you modify the file in order to decrease the diameter so that normal lightning conditions are photoable. (In case you decide to design a smaller diameter diaphragm: the way I got to know the equivalent aperture was to put it in front of a camera (without the lens) and compare the exposure when using different apertures with a lens).
You will find 6 pictures taken with this camera.
