I have had to take two patch shots at 45 degrees offset in an attempt to deal with tripod shadows. That makes stitching a bit more difficult. The final result is worth the effort.

    You are absolutly correct that the most important part is keeping the camera level and at the same height. Positioning errors can be more easily corrected than height errors.
    agreed - the more work you do at time of shoot the less work you do in post production. How many times have we all gone down that road? I know I have more than I like to admit.

The more important concern addressed is in keeping the height the same as well as maintaining stability as with HDR.

      Your adapter is a good idea for indoors and outdoors on flat surfaces. In the rough, the best way is to pinch the legs of the tripod into a monopod and raise the center column so that when the tripod is moved and tilted back over the original center of the pano sphere, the height of the camera is about the same. Moving the tripod only can work in some situations outdoors.

      Also, a good markesr for outdoors are dry beans. Sprinkle a few around the center of the nadir before the bottom shot and then you will have a bunch of biodegradable markers to put control points on. Don't have to pick them up.

          The adapter works for both NN3 and 5.

            Hah! Beans - nice idea!
            I use small coins. If I happen to miss one, someone will pick it up!

              Hi!
              It seems to be a little bit quiet here in the last couple of days.

              Is there anything in sight? Maybe something like a release day for the new products?

              Sorry, for being that impatient!

              I’m very excited since you dropped the announcement here and I can’t wait to hear UPS ringing my doorbell and I can open the box.

              Maybe all this will cost me a fortune, but I’m glad that there is a manufacturer who is listening to the users and tries to build and develop great gear which is matching their needs.

              Thanks,
              Andreas

                  Hi Vincèn!

                  Good idea! But in the meantime I bought a Canon 7D instead to play with

                  Yes, big boys and their toys!

                  Unfortunately I am not patient. Not at all!!

                  Thanks,

                      No way! It would have been too painful for me to leave the NN stuff in the exhibition and going back to Germany with empty pockets afterwards.

                      I'm thinking more and more about travelling to HK for visiting Nick. There I will go on his nerves until he is pushing the production

                        Don't do travel, Nick has a permanent body-guard to prevent him to be harrassed by impatient customers

                              Just heard from my neighbor a TNT guy was trying to deliver new products of NN, but I was absent. What do rumors tell, anything on delivery yet?

                              Knowing Nick and Bill a time, it is worth waiting, and all of us should consider Nick, it is not so long to get the new products comparing to Microsoft, Apple, DxO, to get their homework done.
                              :'(

                              I am feeling like empty, without the new products, really, >, will it be delivered earlier setting pressure and rumors?

                              Yes!!! Uiiissshhh! NO!!

                              Ok, I'll wait, but be sure, I am having an eye on my TNT guy!!!!

                                Hey these poles are great!! - oh sorry - forgot you guys don't have them yet
                                Not to worry - they are only prototypes that even "I" will have to return to Nick soon
                                But until then I'm playing with them as much as possible.
                                Cheers
