A few of my favorite cameras the Dopel Sport was used in WW1 it was a spring timer on a mini panoramic device fitted to a homing pigeon. It flew over the French Lines took the pano image then flew back to the German lines were it was developed.
The last one is a Sutton panoramic the lens filled up with water to make the curvature The other is a sky camera and a real custom job for the wealthy gent
