I found this camaera at Salvation Army a few years ago for $4. It worked really well until I tried to modify it to take multiple exposures which was not a success. I have read contrasting reviews with some people claiming that it has a real wide angle lens and others claiming the panoramic shots are achieved from masking the lens like other cheap panoramic cameras. I am leaning more to the real wide angle side as the photos that came out of it seem more than just lens masked. It is well built for a cheap point and shoot camera and features a frame counter and a locking lens cover that protects against accidental exposures.
