This is the Japanese version. It was known as the Riva Panorama in Europe and the Freedom Vista in the USA. There are many cameras that incorporate the 'panorama' function, but relatively few which were exclusively designed for that format, and most of those are very cheap products made as novelties later in the decade. This model is beautifully made and only about the size of an APS camera. The 24mm lens has a large depth of field which makes focusing unnecessary. It also has a date back.
