I use a Canon Xsi + Sigma 8mm/4 on a Bogen 303SPH pano-head + 300N rotator (vertical format, 90 deg stops for 4 shots, tilt up 5 deg), & am looking for a lighter setup. 303SPH is too heavy & bulky!!
NN3 MKII ($199)
Does the rotator have sufficient tacticle feedback at the stops, so I can be sitting down next to the tripod & flip it to the next stop? How accurate are the stops..does one get repeatable results (so PTGui stitching is a breeze, using a template)
NN3 +RD8 (299)
better rotator. How does it compare to the Bogen 300N? About the same?
more compact than the above. However, NN3 had more flexibility & can do zenith/nadir shots quickly (R10 can't, needs freehand shot)
Can't decide between R10 & NN3 options. Any other tradeoffs?
