Hello,

can somebody point me in some place where i can find npp settings for the kit in the object?
Also i'd like to know horizzontal and vertical rotation angles for full spherical panoramas with this lens.

Thank you all in advance.

Welcome to the Nodal Ninja Forum ...

I have used an 18-200 VR with a Nikon APS-C sensor DSLR and found that at the 18mm end the NP is approximately 31mm back from the front of the lens

so suggest this as a good starting point.

As to the number of exposures, there are a number of calculators on the Internet:

http://www.hdrlabs.com/tools/panocalc.html
which should get you started, but I tend to use a larger overlap than usually suggested because it gives me more scope in removing unwanted movement with the Mask tool in PTGui.

All the best, Hugh.
