Fotoman 612 is a great 6×12 format camera which can easily operated either on a tripod or handheld. I got mine with a Nikkor 90mm f8 SW lens, which is about 30mm equivalent in 35mm format, so it can also be used for documentary photography and not only landscapes.
Basically, its a big box (as are most panoramic format cameras) which requires a separate cone for each lens. It’s very well built and the fact that there are two rewind knobs (back and forth) allows to keep the film always flat. It’s operation of course if full manual. The Nikkor 90mm is an excellent lens capable of producing stunning quality images.
All three images below were taken with the Fotoman 612 / Nikkor 90m f8 combo.
