No. 4 Panoram Kodak (1900 - 1924)

The special purpose Panoram Kodaks have a much wider angle of view than regular cameras. This results in pics that show much more to the left and right. During the first decades of the 20th century these knew some sort of popularity.
Mostly the panoramic photos show horizontal landscapes or cityscapes, but the cameras were capable of taking vertical photos.

In November 1900 the original No. 4 Panoram was replaced by a redesigned model. This had two traversing speeds, a reflex finder and the lens could be covered by a door. Also the film had to be loaded through a the back door. After several minor changes the camera was discontinued in June 1924. In all these years more than 18,000 were made.
The camera in this video dates from around 1914.

The price for the usual model with meniscus lens was $ 20, but for a higher price better lenses could be had.
