The Horizon 202 Panoramic Camera is a swing-lens panoramic camera that takes in a 120-degree field of view with its sharp, well-corrected 28mm f/2.8 lens. It uses standard 35mm film and produces twenty-three 24x58mm images on a 36-exposure roll. Low and High panning speeds plus three focal plane slit widths provide exposure times of 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 second (Low), and 1/60, 1/125 and 1/250 second (High).

A built-in optical viewfinder shows a 110-degree field of view, as well as a reflected image of the top-mounted horizontal bubble level (which is also visible from the top of the body).
