  1. Getting ready to start

    #1

    Hello,

    I'm thinking about buying a pano setup. I've been looking around for a pano head, and the Nodal Ninja offerings seem to be quite a good value. But I've got a couple questions:

    First, I'm considering purchasing a used NN3. Does anyone have any experience with used purchases? What kind of shape are these in?

    Also, will the NN3 support a Nikon D700 (no grip) and a Tamron 17-35 f/2.8-4? Eventually I'd like to upgrade to the 14-24, so I'll ask about the D700/14-24 combo as well.

    Thanks in advance for any help you might provide.

    Mark

    your lens and camera are quite heavy. Go for NN5/5L for better performance.

    Hi Mark,

    do not be afraid to go for the NN5. 14-24 is a heavy lens. Using a pitch of 30¬? and 45¬? you will be happy to have a strong stop on the upper rail to avoid this combination from moving this lens/camera combination while taking spherical panos.

    Do not use a battery grip, cause you might end up in problems with moving etc. I know what i am talking about, i use D3 and for example the 14-24mm, and i am happy to have chosen the NN5/RD16 for all the rest up to 70-200mm.

    If you like more information, feel free to ask me for it.

    Heinz
