  • Samyang 8mm + R1 Ultimate

    Hello,
    before i used Sigma 8mm with R1 and it was easy because technique described in your manual (npp, degrees, number of shots).
    Now i am using Samyang 8 mm with R1 and cant find technique.
    I made many tests, i know that you will say to read johnpanos, michel toby, hugha, but in their texts i cant find answer on my questions.
    made a lot of tests, i am not a professional photographer, making panos just for real estate.

    Could you help?
    I want to make real estate panoramas, have very cheap set: R1 ultimate+Samyang 8mm,
    how many shots, what degree, NPP

    You don't say what type of panorama you are hoping to produce. The Sigma 8mm will produce a full 360x180 panorama with one row. The Samyang won't.

          Hi mirage9,
          Here is a pano I did using the Samyang 8mm (aka Rokinon) with Sony NEX 5 on R1
          http://nodalninja.com/gallery/nex5_rokion_r1_5.html
          Workflow used consisted of setting the R1 with negative -7.5 tilt, 4 shots around + 1 shot up, manual mode, f/11, ISO400, WB Daylight.

            Well, as Bill demonstrates, it's possible to take an extra shot with the adapter to fill in the zenith hole. That works well enough outdoors where there's nothing close directly above, but for indoor real estate work and a speedy workflow, I would opt for a full spherical head myself when using the Samyang.

              We will be releasing a lens ring mount spherical head soon.
              NN3 also works very well for Samyang 8mm.

              We listen. We try harder.

                NN3 and Samyang 8mm are often recommended for panoramas to add colour to HDS (High Definition Survey) scans and are a sort of "standard" and provide a very viable combination.

                    I'm really surprised that you did that with only 4 around with a Samyang 8mm. Usually a 180 diagonal fisheye takes 6 or 5. And in those cases the overlap is very small. Was the camera rotated to put the diagonal vertical?

                    Which 8mm Samyang did you use. The new E-mount 8mm f2.8 Samyang or the original 8mm f3.5 Samyang?

                        Portrait for sure.
