Im using a 30D and the 10-22 canon lens along with the EZ-2 and NN5.
First question once I have setup my everything and I want to level using the EZ-2 I cannont get a birds eye view (ie directly 90 degrees down) of the spirit level. I normally close one eye. I cant get this view because the lens is too thick. I now have to view the level sleightly off from birds eye view, hence I cant get it 100% to my satisfaction before I shoot. Has anyone noticed this? is it a problem?
Secondly when rotating around the and Im using the RD-16 The bubble moves off centre. I know the spirit level is exceptionaly sensetive and that it will drift, however I would like to know what is considered 'acceptable' drift before one can say well perhaps my rotator arm is bent/defective? I have never dropped my Panohead nor knocked it however when i rotate, at some points the bubble moves as to touch the black ring on the spirit leveler. This of course is when I view it from above as close to birds eye as possible.
Any ideas/solutions or am I doing somthing wrong?
Thanks in advance
