I ordered a Sony DSC-HX1 and thinking about ordering a Gorillapod SLR-Zoom, which allows to attach tripod heads. Now I have the following questions:
1. Is there a Nodal Ninja configuration which is lightweight and fits to the Gorillapod SLR-Zoom tripod ? If yes, what parts do I have to order ?
2. Does this Nodal Ninja configuration allow a smooth swing to capture a panorama with the new Sony feature (like with a Video Camera) ?
3. What is the Nodal point of the HX1 camera ?
4. Does this configuration allow multi-row panoramas ?

Thanks a lot for any feedback in advance

if you are serious about pano making, you should consider a more rigid tripod. NN3II package should work with HX1.
