The Horizon is a mechanical swing-lens panoramic camera. It is manufactured by Krasnogorsky Mekhanichesky Zavod in Krasnogorsk, Russia, better-known for their range of Zenit cameras.

Cameras with similar functions include the Noblex and Widelux.

The Horizon was produced in two formats: the 205pc, which took 55×110 mm wide frames on 120 film, and the 202, which took 24×58 mm wide frames on perforated 35 mm film. The 202 has recently been superseded by the S3pro, which is essentially the same camera in a remodelled body.

An older version called Horizont, produced in the Soviet Union in the 1960s, had an all-metal, rectangular body and a removable viewfinder. The technology of the "202" is basically the same, but the body covering is plastic, and has an integrated viewfinder. Thus, it is rather larger than the original Horizont. Additionally, the 202 features a slow-speed shutter mechanism, with exposure times of 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 of a second.
