View Full Version : NN5 - Eos 5Dmk2 - Canon 15mm

i've just received my Canon 15mm lens and was wondering what was the best settings for this lens (A=53 // B=79,5).
Also, how many pictures do you take? I've tried -15°x6 +Z but this doesn't cover the nadir (i would say the nadir is visible at -25°).
So, what's your best settings with this gear?

A=55 is the correct using a recent NN5 with the camera plate. B= 80 is fine. I use 81 usually . Its not an exact value . 79-81 all works fine.

I never use more than -10. That gives you all you can see down to the edge of the rotator. I do not like to have the rotator in the image. It may give you extra work masking it if you want to stitch your nadir image together with the others.

quick question: Are those two marks need to be aligned?

Another question: I've two marks
