Can anybody tell me where to find technical specs and information on Cirkut cameras? I'm interested in trying to reproduce one based on a R B Cycle Graphic. Specifically a #6 or #8.
Thanks

Go huntin' (if you haven't already) at http://www.google.com and push some buttons!

http://www.bigshotz.co.nz/cirkut_faqs.html
http://www.cirkutpanorama.com/cameras.html
http://www.panoramic.net/www/cirkut.htm

You'll probably find or locate access to the info you want.

Happy huntin'

I have to say reproducing one at this time sounds like the painful and expensive way around... At least on ebay these things are worse than cutting edge computers,,, what once cost $3500 is now only bringing $1500 at best.

I tried to sell mine on ebay a few months ago and it brought about 2/3 what I paid for it two years ago.

For all it's complexity, it's easier to buy and shoot than to reinvent the wheel.

Now for a differing opinion, drop a line to Prof Davidhazy at ROchester Inst of Tech.

He's the epitimy of the tinkering professor, has a Craftsman metal lathe in his office, has built spinning, twirling, scanning, and slitting cameras out of scanners, coffee cups, you name it.

Hold on this says it better

Well call me crazy, but I don't do anything the easy way. If I could find and afford a original one that would be great. I would be interested in reproducing one from scratch and possibly producing a small line of them if I can find the technical drawings or specs on one. Or a wrecked one to pattern off of.
