  1. D3s with a 14-24 mm 2.8 lens Rail Settings.

    I am having a bugger of a time trying to find these out. I am close but no sense reinventing the wheel if someone else has them. If not I got about an hour left to get mine nailed in and its dark now so there is always tomorrow.

    PS. I think the D3 and the D3s are the same measurements if someone has them for the D3....

    OK, So I just learned how to, I guess bang my head against the wall, and found them under camera setting on the first page of the NN website. Silly Me and ignore this posting.

    hi, which rail settings worked for you?
    I got stiching errors using the settings from the nodal ninja website.
    thanks in advance

    I too am interested in finding out if anyone figured out some successful settings for this set up.

    Hi Terry:

    Here is the data. Add +90° for Z and -90° twice, one normal, one with the new adaptor turned out.

    Hi Heinz,

    could you re-post the data, I can't see it since the forum changed.

    Before that I had tried your settings, with more success than those on the NN website, but didn't keep a note of them.

    Thanks,

    Malcolm.

    Hi Malcolm,

    NIKKOR 14-24/F2.8 D3 NN5 LRS 89 my personal findings:

    Zoom 14: 122
    15: 121
    16: 118
    18: 114
    20: 113
    24: 112

    Hope it helps, for me these settings stitched successfully. Zoom 14 -16 : 2 rows 45° - 8 stops, 18 - 20 : 3 rows 18@45°, 20 24 @36°-10 stops. I always calculate overlap with around 30%.

    Regards,

    Here are my settings that works fine for D3 (same body as D3S) with 14/24 on NN5 with QRS2:

    89 for lower rail

    at 24mm: 112mm

    one zenith shot, one row at +47.5º, one row at +2.5º, one row at -42.5º (10 shots at 36º each for each row)
    two nadir shots with nadir adapter, and it all stitches perfectly fine :D

    P-S: Credit goes at Heinz for these settings, he helped much for that ;)

    Hi,

    this is my addition. I have to confess, -25° picks the last segment of my tripod leg. So I am trying to avoid this masking work. I have to raise to -15° to get rid of it. And then I have to test how the nadir will stitch to this. I have the sequence, but had no time to try the stitch. I will let you know about this.

    So far this works fine for me.

    Regards

    Heinz


    P.S. Thx Vincen
