Actually, I think a lot of 35 mm film scanners move the film rather than the optics... The critical matter is, how is the CCD array aligned with respect to the film? On the Polaroid SprintScan Plus, it's aligned with the long axis of a 35 mm frame, so there's no way this sort of mechanism could be adapted to panoramic formats. If the CCD array were aligned with (parallel to) the short axis of the 35 mm frame, it could be made to work. rafe b. - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
