Have you noticed Instagram's film border filters that mimic authentic analogue sprocket holes? Us too, and who can blame them, it's a great look!

35 mm Panoramics
Panoramas are almost as old as photography itself, with the first attempts appearing as early as 1839. Early panoramas were made by placing two or more daguerreotype plates (silver-coated copper plates) side-by-side. Jump forward 180 years to today, skipping a few pioneering iterations on the way, and you have in your hands, a fully-functioning 35 mm panoramic camera.
