        Thank you for helping so far. Further help needed.

        Ok, so I ordered my Nodal Ninja 3 basic package ( stucked at the customs :( ). I've managed to
        save up some money for a new dslr camera. I came to conclusion
        that shoting panoramas with a compact camera ( 35-105mm or any other )
        is a lot of work - to many shots, long time to stich photos together.


        I've narrowed down the choice to folowing cameras:

        Olympus E-450/E-520/E-620 14-22mm

        Canon EOS 1000D + EF-S 18-55mm
        Canon EOS 500D + EF-S 18-55mm.


        My questions:

        1. I assume all of these models are compatible with Nodal Ninja 3? ( weight, dimensions )

        2. With Canon lenses 18-55mm I have to shot 32 times to get a complete panorama...

        Min. shots (1.6x): N, 10 images every 36 at -45 pitch, 10 images every 36 at 0 pitch,
        10 images every 36 at +45 pitch, Z


        This information is available on http://www.vrwave.com/ .

        What about the Olympus E? With a 14-22mm I would be able to shot less. The table
        on nodal ninja site tells me I have to take 6 shots every 60 degree to get a full
        360 panorama. I assume I have to shot 6 more on -45 and +45, plus N and Z?
        So, the total is 20shots? :)

        3. Which of these camera would you suggest for shoting full panoramas? Which has
        a better manual adjustment(focus, ISO...)

          yes, these cameras work for NN3. You can also consider buying an affordable Samyang (or in other names eg Falcon/ Bower/ Rokinon/ etc) 8mm fisheye. You can take 4-6 shots around, plus zenith and nadir shots.

            Afkors, you can't buy it in Croatia. :) I found it in Slovenia, looks good...

            But it weights 435g?? that twice as heavy as Canon's EF-S lens. Should I be worried about it. NN3 can hold the weight?
