  1. Which Pano Head?

    #1

    Here is what I have.

    Canon 40D
    Sigma 8mm Fisheye Lens
    Gitzo Carbon Tripod

    I want to take 4 shot panos mostly for Real Estate jobs. Why would I want the Ninja 5 over the 3 if I am only looking to do 4 shot panos?

    =================================================

    While I have you here what are you guys doing to set your white balance?

    What are people finding really works for them?

    Warm Cards like these - www.vortexmedia.com/

    Digital Calibration Targets - http://www.photovisionvideo.com/stor...egory_Code=DCT

    I use a WhiBal

    Like any WB tool, it will not give perfect results every time.
    But it's a good starting point.

    Hey Tri3,
    The NN5 is overkill for your listed equipment. Unless you need to use a battery grip or have plans on using much longer focal length lengths (approx 40mm+) the NN3 MKII will work without limitation. Also if only doing 4 shot single row pano's the NN180 would be even a better choice - lighter and less expensive.
    thx
    Bill

    NN180 is not good for making spherical pano for 40D and 8mm fisheye. You need 4.5mm, 5.6mm fisheye or you need an L-bracket to mount the camera in portrait mode.
