View Full Version : NN3 + Sigma 10-12mm - 1:4-5.6 DC HSM + Eos 30D

Today I have a question for a good friend of mine:
He has got the camera-lens-combination I just mentioned in the subjekt.
Is the NN3 the right choise for this combination? Is it stable enough?

Thank you for your help

Best regards from Germany

The weight isn't a factor however if doing full 360x180 spherical panos, this lens may only allow for partial tilt up. To shoot the zenith (up shot) with this lens you will either need to move the camera/lens forward on the upper rail to allow for full rotation or simply shoot manually (as most do). You could also shoot two rows - one row to catch the zenith (top) and one row to catch the nadir (floor). For many this is not a big deal but thought I would share this.
NN5L does not have this limitation.
