Nodal ninja 3MKII with a compact camera
I'm Damir from Croatia, and I'm a freelance web developer. I'm starting a firm, which will offer web developing and 360 panoramas and virtual tours. So, I'm basicy starting with panoramas, and so far I managed to produce only a single row panorama. I want to shoot 360 multirow, spherical panoramas.
Looking all the way up and down, something like this - http://krpano.com/krpano.html?pano=p...che/kirche.xml .
I'm just about to order a NN3 MKII. But I have a dilema which one to get. With or without leverer, and what rotator.
I went to the decision tree:
1. I have a compact BENQ ( for start ) which tells me I defenitly need a t-adapter because of an offset between center of the lens and a mount hole.
2. I want to shoot multirow sphereical panoramas, multiimage mosaic etc...so I need a NN3 serias
the problem starts at the next one:
3. CHANGING FOCAL LENGHTS rarely or frequently? What does this mean?
My camera specifications:
Sensor SONY 10 Mega Pixels, 1/2.3 inch CCD

Lens f = 6.2 ( W ) ~ 18.6 ( T ) mm

(f = 35~105mm, 35mm equivalent)

Power Source AA Battery x 2
CIPA Approx 200 base on bundled batteries

So, will the basic package do the job, or I need a built in leverer? I assume I do need it. :001_smile:
4. If I need a leverer, which rotator to get?
NN3 w/R-D3L ( 6-8-10 )
NN3 w/R-D3L ( 6-8-30 )
or without leverer the NN3 w/R-D8?
I noticed most of you guys use a 8mm fisheye, but is there someone who uses just a compact camera simmilar to mine?
I would be thankfull if someone could help me. :blushing:
