17mm seems to be the sweet spot, at least most of the time. I saw others on this forum also mention around 17 and 18mm to be the best for them.

So how is the R1 designed to take the zenith and nadir? I see the little user guide states to tilt the camera up and down after loosening the knob. Do you also have to slide the pole/tripod a couple of inches as well? I'm a bit lost at that point.

What do you like to shoot? Indoors, or outdoors. On a tripod or on a pole? Which Zoom setting are you talking about?

Would be nice to have this answer to give a good advice. Once I know about it, I can give you advice.

So long,
