  1. Best lens for panoramics - Having problems with my lens

    #1

    Hi,

    Help me?

    I have a Canon 1000d with 18-55mm kit and i have been doing some panos.
    The lens i have for interior (bedrooms, wc, etc) is not so good, in fact I can't do any pano in perfect conditions.

    I do not want to spend much money for a lens fot now, sigma 10-20mm or Tamron SP AF 10-24mm are good lens? Can eny one suggest another or some that does not go very far from どィ 500, 550どィ at most fisheye included.

    Thanks

    Hi ... (what's your name?)

    Are you using a Nodal Ninja head? If so which one?

    For the lens I'd recommend to you the Sigma 8mm f/3.5 but you wont find a new one for 500 euros... The Tokina 10-17mm would come into your price range. You'll need 6 shots around plus one shot vertical and one or two shots down for a full 360 image.

    You can order the lens from us here: http://360tacticalvr.com/systems/fis...10-17mm-2.html.

    Hi,
    My name is Tiago and yours?
    I have a Nodal Ninja 3 mkII with R-D8 Rotator package.
    The sigma 10-20mm is not good?

    Hi Tiago,

    My name's Andy (signature at bottom of posts)

    The Sigma 10-20mm is a good lens but unless I'm wrong it's not 10mm on a DX sensor so you'll need to take a lot more shots with this lens for your camera. the Tokina will give you the least number of shots in your price range. The Sigma 8mm will let you take a full 360 with only 4 shots but Sigma recently put their prices up...

    Tiago, See http://www.vrwave.com/ for details of how many shots are needed for various lenses. The Sigma 10-20mm would need 17 shots. The Tokina 10-17mm fisheye is a versatile lens and would be a good choice well within your price range.

    Hi Tiago,

    I use a Tokina 10-17 on a cropped sensor(1.6) Canon 350D with the Nodal Ninja NN3 MK II and it works a treat.

    Some images of mine here.

    I throughly recommend the lens, it has been one of my best buys.

    All the best,

    Johnny
