I have a Nikon d90 and I am going to purchase the Nikon 10.5 fisheye lens. I will be creating 360 panoramas and I was wondering which setup i should purchase to make the rotation as easy as possible to use. What benefits does one have over the other, I have about a $300 budget for this.

Nodal Ninja 3 MKII:
- w/Rotator R-D16
- with RD3L 6-8-10 Rotator/EZ-Leveler-II
- with RD3L 6-8-30 Rotator/EZ-Leveler-II
- w/Rotator R-D8
- Complete Package

Any advise is much appreciated,

Paul

Hi Coppershark,
welcome to the forum.
With the gear you have you'll more than liekly be shooting at 60 degree increments or 6 shots around.
While the NN3 pkg at $229.95 would work fine the NN3 w/RD3L 6-8-10 would be best. With built leveler you're saving on weight and money.

Thanks for the quick response Bill...

For only a $10 difference in your opinion would the NN 3 MKII w/Rotator R-D16 be easier to use or does the RD16 rotator have an advantage or is the NN 3 MKII with RD3L 6-8-10 Rotator/EZ-Leveler-II similar and will work fine for my camera and lens?

Hi Paul,
IMO you do not need the RD16 - it's more for those shooting with longer lens plus it doesn't have built in leveler which is very handy. You will really appreciate the NN3 MKII with RD3L 6-8-10 Rotator with built in EZ-Leveler-II - and it comes with a full 30 day money back guarantee.
thx
