  1. Best Setup for Panoramic Interiors w/ G9

    #1

    Total newbie, had a G9 camera for a while which I like.

    I'm wondering what the best setup is for doing Panoramic interiors (real estate) with a G9.

    I notice there are a bunch of configurations for the NN3, eg.
    Nodal Ninja 3 MKII Complete package
    Nodal Ninja 3 MKII w/Rotator R-D8
    Nodal Ninja 3 MKII with/Rotator R-D16
    Nodal Ninja 3 MKII with RD3L 6-8-10 Rotator/EZ-Leveler-II
    Nodal Ninja 3 MKII with RD3l 6-8-30 Rotator/EZ-Leveler-II
    what would a good setup be for the G9 taking interiors?

    I also take it that the T-adapter with 20mm offset would be required?

    Also, is the G9 in general a good camera for doing panorama's.....

    Thanks in advance...

    A 35mm lens would not be very good for spherical pano making. Search for best wide angle converters for G9. YOu may search in popular forums in dpreview, imaging-resources etc.

    Thanks for the info.... I have a the canon WC-DC58B Wide Converter, which seems to work well with the G9......

    wc-DC58B is a 0.75x converter. it makes the widest fl 26.25mm.
    using fov calculator, you will find the angle of view.
    I make a spreadsheet for different focal length on different sensor format.

    Since G9 and most DCs use 4/3 aspect ratio, you can look at spread sheet for 4/3 sensors. Bear in mind that 4/3 format has a 2x cropped factor. So, you should look for 26/2=13mm fl in the spreadsheet. You will find the horizontal angle of view is about 53 deg, and vertical angle of view about 67 deg. As the spread sheet suggested, you need to shot at most 36 deg interval or 10 shots around. This is for horizontal coverage. For vertical coverage, angle of view is 67 deg, you need about 30% overlap, so you need to shoot at 67/1.3=51.5 deg interval. You can always shoot at smaller interval to increase overlap. Let's choose 45 deg interval. Then you take one row of 10 shots at 0 deg pitch, one row of 10 shots at +45 deg pitch, one row of 10 shots at -45 deg pitch, plus top and down shots at +90 and -90 pitch. So you need 32 shots.
    YOu can optimize the setting and reduce the number of shots when you have more experience in pano making.

    NN3II and NN3II R-D8 should work for you. You may need to use different interval for optimized shooting sequence. I suggest NN3II R-D8 for you. You can change the interval on the fly.
