The pano looks great. Thanks for sharing.
Can you share this pano without nadir patching? I want to know how big is the footprint of Manfrotto pole.

Hi nick.
the footprint is not that big. the biggest problem is that the 3.8 thread is not centered in the pole so I need to adjust to that.

Or I might change the top of the lightstand so it can hold a normal 3/8 in the center.

I uploaded a pano withou nadir and zenith patch to flickr.com and with aldo his plugin we can see it (shockwave)

I've been working on the setup today.
Problem was I could not get the lens enough to the front.
Solution was to reverse the mounting plate of the ring.
now I hand more room to get it more to the front. But..
I think I need to make a new top for the pole.

on the otherhand.. I guess it is close enough. there is movemant in the pole anyway so if it's a little of you will not see it.
right now it stitches nearly perfect.

Actually, at 7.5m high, NPP may not be that important. Many pro pole panographers shift the lens 10-20mm infront of NPP to reduce the nadir footprint. So maybe you can simply rotate the pole adapter by 180 deg so that the lens surface is in line with the pole circumference.

I've been thinking about that myself. the first pano I did was actually like that. but problem was that if I rotated the head 180. I could not do a zenit image at 90 degrees.
but at 75 or so. also not really a problem. but still I need to find a metal shop that can ceate a new top for me. without the bulky plastic thing there is right now :001_smile:

My Father in law had an old Eiger tripod wich had a slightly larger middle colom as the inside of the pole.
I heated up the pole and made the colom of the eiger (after shortening it) very cold
I could hammer the colom inside the pole.
After cooling down of the heated pole it is thightended rock solid :001_smile:

Wow, magnificent!

BTW, how heavy is the Manfrotto tripod?

it weights around 20 pounds.
I know some people use a golf trolley for it to move over long distances.
I did not buy that yet. but think it could be very handy.

Is it the Manfrotto 269HDBU?

How do you rotate the camera por the panos?
DO you lower all the pole or do you rotate the tripod?

Hallo Heinz. thnx for that link.
But you say 325,00??

i see this on that link??


Prezzo: 769,80 EUR

269HDB-3U is based on the 269HDBU lighting stand modified to support your camera up to 7.3m (24 ft.). The special top attachment permits you to attach a camera head, or directly attach your camera. Using a triple levelling leg system and a levelling bubble, you can adjust the position of your camera in order to shoot wherever and however you want.

$400 approximately in Russia

700+ euros is for some special edition, I guess
Like with gold coating :001_smile:

Wouldn't be a good pole more practical than this supersized tripod?
This light stand won't provide enough stability and support anyway - I wouldn't dare to leave it standing free with my camera on the top.

I know the best pole is yet to come from FANOTEC. :biggrin:

We know Nick,

but for some people it is hard to wait.

And there was the question about this pole. Round 7 m in height and around 8kg.

Cheers

My 6m fiberglass pole weights only 1,5 kilograms and is only 1,2 meter in collapsed state :001_smile:

What I would be happy to get from NN is somethig robotized and lightweight!

This must be a fault on their website. I did not look to the price. But in the Nl it is about 325Ǩ.

But anyway, I know Nodal Ninja and Fanotec are doing their best to fulfill customers wishes. Nick already told us their will be new products. So let us wait for the next big meeting in Tuscon. The "photokina" for panoramaphotographie. May be we see some "NN7" and "R2" and a lot of new equipment. Why? Cause these guys, Nick and Bill, plus the rest of the stuff, "are listening, they try harder, they turn us around, and they try to deliver the fata morgana as reality in our homes"

Thx for this guys.
