This camera is believed to have been released around 1990.
The camera features a panoramic frame that is placed
in the film chamber to take pictures.
This is a very rare specification.
It’s quite an interesting camera, isn’t it!
This is indeed Kyocera, a manufacturer that has released such
eccentric products as the SAMURAI!
It is a great pity that there is no camera division now.
It would be fun to have this camera dedicated to panoramic photography!
Please get this camera and enjoy!
