"HORIZON D-L3 is a first step in a new era for panoramic photography in Russia. With the HORIZON D-L3 the principles that made the camera simple and instantaneous to use without scarifying quality, were maintained. The project developed in Joint Venture with Silvestri Italy is based on a three digital modules system giving the simultaneous acquisition of 3 images. This makes it possible to shoot freehand subjects of all kind, including those in motion.

The 28mm equivalent lens, designed to correspond to the resolution of the CMOS sensors, represents the qualifying element of the camera. The quality of the Russian optics is well known and has always been appreciated worldwide. The Zenitar 28mm f/3.5 equivalent becomes a great strong point compared to the more modest offers of the market.

The optical viewfinder with top level, part of the HORIZON constructive tradition, is the continuity in the innovation. A wide touch screen display gives access to the menu options and to images viewing. A specific stitching software is supplied wit the camera, making the stitching operation fast and easy to complete on the PC."
