- ; Years Manufactured: c. 1895-1899

Notes: The design was patented by Mathias Flammang in 1894.  It  has a curved film plane accessed by a flexible holder curved when installed.  It was quite expensive, and predated the interest in panoramas and banquet photographs c.1914-1930's that engendered the Gundlach Korona Panoramic Camera (1914), the Korona Banquet Camera (1914) and the Folmer & Schwing Banquet Camera (1915).  hardly any appear to have survived, if any were made.
