    Thank you for helping so far. Further help needed.

    Ok, so I ordered my Nodal Ninja 3 basic package ( stucked at the customs :( ). I've managed to
    save up some money for a new dslr camera. I came to conclusion
    that shoting panoramas with a compact camera ( 35-105mm or any other )
    is a lot of work - to many shots, long time to stich photos together.


    I've narrowed down the choice to folowing cameras:

    Olympus E-450/E-520/E-620 14-22mm

    Canon EOS 1000D + EF-S 18-55mm
    Canon EOS 500D + EF-S 18-55mm.


    My questions:

    1. I assume all of these models are compatible with Nodal Ninja 3? ( weight, dimensions )

    2. With Canon lenses 18-55mm I have to shot 32 times to get a complete panorama...

    Min. shots (1.6x): N, 10 images every 36° at -45° pitch, 10 images every 36° at 0° pitch,
    10 images every 36° at +45° pitch, Z


    This information is available on http://www.vrwave.com/ .

    What about the Olympus E? With a 14-22mm I would be able to shot less. The table
    on nodal ninja site tells me I have to take 6 shots every 60 degree to get a full
    360 panorama. I assume I have to shot 6 more on -45 and +45, plus N and Z?
    So, the total is 20shots? :)

    3. Which of these camera would you suggest for shoting full panoramas? Which has
    a better manual adjustment(focus, ISO...)

    yes, these cameras work for NN3. You can also consider buying an affordable Samyang (or in other names eg Falcon/ Bower/ Rokinon/ etc) 8mm fisheye. You can take 4-6 shots around, plus zenith and nadir shots.

    Afkors, you can't buy it in Croatia. :) I found it in Slovenia, looks good...

    But it weights 435g?? that twice as heavy as Canon's EF-S lens. Should I be worried about it. NN3 can hold the weight?
