  1. D200 and NN3

    #1

    Just received my NN. Easy assembly (still trying to work out what all the spare parts in the plastic bag are for!!).

    A quick question - Am I doing something wrong or do other people have to detach and then reattach their cameras (Nikon D200) to do the zenith shot? With the Sigma 10-20 mm attached the hand grip on the camera hits the base when trying to rotate to 90 degrees (vertical). Its not a problem, I'm just interested to know.

    First landscape shoot this weekend.

    yes, this is typical for your set up. The angle of view of sigma 10-20mm is wide enough to cover the zenith without a zenith shot.

    Hey Pete, Spare parts are there should you every need them - better to have them than not.
    On shooting the zentih we tell folks:
    if doing full 360x180 spherical panos, this lens only allows for partial tilt up. To shoot the zenith (up shot) with this lens you will either need to move the camera/lens forward on the upper rail to allow for full rotation or simply shoot manually (as most do). You could also shoot two rows - one row to catch the zenith (top) and one row to catch the nadir (floor). For many this is not a big deal but thought I would share this.
    Keep us posted as you go - we would love to se some of your work.
    thanks
    Bill
