Mazandaran Province is one of the most densely populated provinces in Iran and has diverse natural resources, notably large reservoirs of oil and natural gas. The diverse nature of the province features plains, prairies, forests and rainforest stretching from the sandy beaches of the Caspian Sea to the rugged and snowcapped Alborz sierra, including Mount Damavand, one of the highest peaks and volcanos in Asia.
This is an image taken using the Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL lens. The Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL lens has an image circle of 166 mm, so it is not suitable for a 6x17 format at all. Because its image circle is small for 6x17 format. But because the Panoral 617 camera has the ability to mount the Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL lens, I used it for this scene. Because the 75 and 65 mm lens could not give me a complete picture of this scene. Although the corners of the image are slightly cut due to the small image circle of the lens, you can still see a beautiful image with an ultra-wide lens. I purposely did not use a center filter because I wanted to test the performance of the Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL lens without a center filter on the 6x17 format.
For this image, I used the Panoral 617 camera. I used Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL lens and mount Bronica SR60.2C (R1) on it. The image shooted, with aperture 22 and shutter speed 1/4 seconds on Ilford Delta 100.
