Some of my thoughts about panoramics and how I came to it.

I use Fuji SW 90/8 on 617

Nice shots Superka!  I was wondering if someone would mention any of the medium format panoramic film cameras.  I'm curious - did you need to use a center filter for these pictures?

I have lusted after the Fuji GX-617 for a while, but it is a bit expensive for what would be very much a niche camera for me.  Even more so the insanely pricey Horeseman models.  I do however have a Noblex 6/150 Pro that I recently got on eBay; it just came back from a complete overhaul and repair, and I'm really looking forward to using it for the first time. 8)

Hello! Yes, I use Center ND, for 617 and 90mm it is a "must have".
Fuji GX is really expensive. I use Chinese DaYi camera, there is also Gaoersi brand, that is more affordable then Fuji. Still, there is one great camera for 6x17 - it is Shen Hao PTB 617. I never used it, but those who did - were happy. If I would buy 6x17 now, I'll go for Shen Hao PTB 617, probably.
I don't like Noblex because of its cylindrical projection. I prefer rectangular.

DxO charts are really funny. They doesn't tell one of the major thing - color reproduction. Useless charts without this.

Nice video is what I want. Sharp, with no Aliasing, RAW video. This is the main for me concerning digital.
Also, I would like to see panoramic camera, smth like Xpan (Fuji TX). I don't like 3:2.

DO NOT buy any flatbad scanner, if you want to see the best film can (and it really can!). There is only few good scanners which you should look at (my advice). For 24x36 it is Monolta Scan Elite 5400 II, and another is Nikon 5000 of course. Unfortunately they do not scan 24x56 or 24x65mm.
If you want to try Medium Format, up to 6x9sm, then Nikon 9000 or older 8000 (though it slow) are the best. Also suitable for any 135 film frame sizes.  But there are alternatives - Minolta Multi Pro is one of them (with Scanhanser).
If you want to go panoramic 6x17sm then again - Nikon 9000+Vuescan+Stitching, or Imacon Flextight series scanners. Imacons are very good scanners, with perfect software. They are very convinient to use can deal with any film size.

See some information here

Note, that scanners with diffuse light source are preferable, because show much less of film grain.

I personally is film-shooter and I love film. I have switched from digital in 2008 year. Lots of my friends also did this. Good Luck to you!  ::)

If photo is primary - you can buy FF, Canon 6D of course! If video does really matter - Nikon D5200.
What about D7100's video - we don't know yet, but the price is almost like FF.
