I just purchased the NN3, but was not able to get the settings for a Nikon D200 with a Tokina 10-17 lens. I will be shooting at 10mm. Does any one has this value?

Hi Hamish,
Unfortunately we don't have the settings for this lens yet.
As we hear back from customers we post the findings here: http://nodalninja.com/nodal_ninja_3_camera_settings.html.
If you do not find your camera/lens on the list the manual teaches you how to find these settings: http://nodalninja.com/nodal_ninja_user_manual.html.
Learning to find the no parallax point of a lens is fairly straight forward once learned. The biggest advantage to know how to do this is you can use the technique with virtually any lens at any focal length.
I can tell you the lower "A" setting once found will never change if using the same camera body.
Also here is another link to a database of entrance pupils for various lenses that might help:
http://wiki.panotools.org/Entrance_Pupil_Database.
After you do finally learn the settings I hope you might share them with us so we can post them on the website.
Hope this helps.
Thank you,
Bill

ps - if anyone else has these settings please let us know - this is a popular lens - thx

this maybe a good start.

But beware that the NPP varies with angle of view. Shaved Tokina on full frame sensor has much larger angle of view and may NPP be different fron D200.
