For the 1971 Hungarian film, see Horizon (film).

The Horizont is a mechanical swing-lens, panoramic, camera. Produced in the Soviet Union in the 1960s, it has an all-metal, rectangular body and removable grip and viewfinder.

First introduced at Photokina in 1966, the Horizont creates a picture using 24 x 58 mm frames on 35mm film. It has an OF-28P (28 mm, f/2.8), fixed-focus, lens and offers shutter speeds of 1/30 s, 1/60 s and 1/125 s. Its body is 142 mm wide, 100 mm high and 67 mm deep and weighs 910 g (grip not included).

A new version, produced in post-soviet Russia, carries the Horizon brand.
