Hi everybody.

Just purchased NN3 MKII with nadir adapter.

I have Canon60D and fisheye "Samyang 8mm f/3.5 AS IF UMC Fish-eye CS II Canon EF".

While I wait for shipping, does anybody have checked settings for right positioning camera at Nodal Ninja head?

I would love to hear some suggestions for settings as well. Anyone? Hello? Is this thing on?

Setting up the Samyang 8mm is independent of the choice of camera.
I have put a diagram of the behaviour of the lens on www.hugha.co.uk on a page at:

The choice of where to set the NPP (No Parallax Point) depends on whether you chose to shoot 6 shots round or 8 shots round.
I go for the bigger overlap with 8 shots round as this gives more common area for control points and more scope for using the Mask tool, but others perefer 6.
