I went to an exhibition on Panoramic Photography last year at the local museum, which introduced me to the world of panoramic photography 100 years ago. The orginal panoramic camera was a large format camera called a Kodak Cirkut Camera which rotated a full 360 degrees while it exposed a single strip of film up to 8 feet long inside of it. (The film was slowly advanced as the camera rotated.)

I have since been watching for interesting websites about these photos and cameras, so here is a start for anyone interested in this:

Kodak Cirkut Cameras Info

Library of Congress Reading Room

Short Course in Panoramic Photography Online (incl. historical info)
