Item details

This is an interesting and collectible piece of Leica/Leitz history.


The Panoramakopf (FARUX)was a device to help users to 'easily' make panorama photographs using Leica 35mm cameras during the 1930's era. The head attaches between the camera and a tripod and allowed controlled rotation of the camera between exposures using gentle click stops to properly position the camera. The replaceable ring on top includes the proper spacing for 5cm focal length lenses. (Others were made for different focal lengths - NOT INCLUDED).

This panorama head is in excellent condition and was very little used. Rotates firmly but smoothly. Some slight wear marks on the base can be seen. This head is in the European standard 3/8" tripod socket top and bottom. (Adapters are available for use with US 1/4" sockets. This head is only marked Ernst Leitz Wetzlar and does not have 'Germany" markings which indicates it was likely produced for the German domestic market and not for export. The box is also in very good condition except the bottom which has lost the red outer covering.

These are an interesting, specialized item that are infrequently offered for sale in this nice condition.
