Hello all,

I have been shooting panos for about a year and the results have been good, but I am always looking to better my processes and have heard a lot about NN. I am considering buying and wanted some thoughts from and your experience for what is best for me. Here is my criteria:

* I currently shoot with a Canon 7D, primarily with an 8mm Samyang fisheye lens. I have a Manfrotto tripod that a buddy of mine let me borrowed. I'm not even sure what model it is, but its heavy enough to be used with a video camera

* I am looking to add the capability of shooting with photography poles in conjunction with a tripod

* I am not looking for the cheapest solution, I am looking for the best that will make post-production as easy as possible.

What kind of NN do I need? Leveler? Anything else? I saw a post on tripods already in this forum and know fanotec does not sell them, but am thinking I need another one if anyone has any further thoughts.

I greatly appreciate anyone sharing your ideas. Thanks.
