  1. nikon 80-200 mm + D300s on a NN5 + RD16

    #1

    hi all

    befor i'm going to bay the nokon 80-200 for a flat panoram
    i wish to know if i can use it on the NN5 in a portrait mode?

    the RD16 let me shoot from 3.75 degree (7.5/2) to 120
    and with the 200 mm on the nikon D300s it givin me a 3.6 degree...

    ane suggestion to solve this problem?

    I don't know where the 3.6 degree comes from. A 200mm lens in portrait on the D300S should have an hfov of around 4.5 degrees, which gives 16% overlap at a yaw increment of 3.75 degrees. The only way of getting a bigger overlap is to reduce the focal length a little - or maybe buy a full frame camera.

    With a lens ring collar installed, you can rotate the camera to landscape orientaion and thus get wider horizontal angle of view. Do it this way if you want to get more overlap.

    Nick, Yes, that's a good idea. A lens collar would probably be necessary anyway since the entrance pupil at 200mm would perhaps be located within the body of the camera. However, the snag with landscape orientation is the smaller vertical increment required for multi-row shooting. In portrait, you can conveniently set a vertical increment of 5 degrees, which gives an overlap of 25%. In landscape, it would be difficult to set a smaller increment with any accuracy.

    Tamiro,

    Which Nikkor lens do you want to buy? The 70-200/f2.8 or an older 80-200/f2.8 model? The 70-200/f2.8 needs a special set up but but it works on NN5.

    the 70-200 VR I/II are to expensive and i am not going to use the VR anyway
    so, i think i'll bay the 80-200 (the "new" version)
