View Full Version : What ever happened to the L-bracket

From the description of the NN180:

Lenses such as shaved Nikon 10.5mm on full frame sensor and Sigma 8mm on cropped sensor can be supported by using a L-bracket and slanted adapter (to be released later) for making spherical panos.

What ever happened to the L-bracket and slanted adapter?

I planned to develop some low cost L-bracket but in vain. Total cost for NN180 plus an L-bracket is much higher than NN3II, which makes it not sensible to make.
Sales of NN180 had not be great. With R1 and R10 in place, the need of L-bracket and slanted adapter for NN180 has much diminished. For those badly in need, they can buy from other manufacturers. FYI, NN180 has been even discontinued.

We will however develop Arca Swiss compatible L-bracket for the Ultimate line.
