PanoramaScanCam (?!)-- Mac A. Cody is working on converting a Umax flatbed scanner to a panoramic camera. When I read the proposal and saw the first sketches a few weeks ago, I thought he would never get there-- there's a lot of work involved-- but here it is! He achieved first light, and the image looks promising. I am most impressed by his (re/ab)use of a toilet tank hose clip in the registration sensor assembly.
