I am going with the EOS Rebel T2i EF-S 18-55mm IS Kit. I have the NN5 w/ R16 Rotator and EZleveller II
Does anyone have this setup or know the correct settings? Thanks!

Hi Vibes,

have a look to this : http://wiki.panotools.org/Entrance_Pupil_Database. Measure ( H ) and add 13 for you lower rail setting. I proofed this for my equipment several times. Test with this:

http://www.easypano.com/forum/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=1&TopicID=4162. You have to move the camera to the side where the "tooth cuts".

For the lens setting measure L1 : lens flange to tripod mount, and add L2 from the lens. Test the setting.

Feel free to ask, not being sure you no my email.

for the frist steps:

Zoom 18mm: 4 rows 36 10 stops 57.5 pitch

30 12 stops 20

" -12.5

" -47.5

Calculated with 30% overlap , avoiding panohead to have less work for the nadir. Please tell me if there are problems with these setting. I can not test it personally.Nikonian :wink:. You have to shoot +/- 90 as well.

A lot of pics to take. Choose a calm place like the nice pano in the valleys.

http://www.dofmaster.com/doftable.html for hyperfocal distance. Just to compare cause the 550d is missing.

Try to shoot bracketing in continous mode, makes your job quicker. Be aware bracketing 3 asks 138 shots. A lot of ghosts, moving leaves, clouds etc in windy or busy situations.

The next goal should be a 15mm canon fisheye, or, without contacts, totally manual a 8mm samyang for low budget.

Thank you very much! I will work from those great suggestions and help and yes I am planning next purchase to be the 15mm wide angle, I believe it is right around $650.
