  1. Confused from a new member

    #1

    Hi to everyone this is my first post,
    I already have a 360 precision Adjust for my 360 photography but it is a little overkill for me right now
    It is very stable but nit for me.

    I have a Canon 5D Mark III and a canon 15mm fisheye
    so I need a small setup as possible but very good quality, but I am confused with all the information here.
    I need the panohead for the tripod not for poles for the moment.
    I will use it only for the 360 not other uses
    I need Zenith and Nadir
    WHich one is better R1 or R10?

    Thank you

    Welcome Nikos,

    You'll get as good results with R1 and R10, the question is flexibility and change of lenses in future. If you go with R1, you get choice of tilt so multiple setups possible and if in future you use other fisheye, you'll be easily able to use them on R1 (just change of ring and adjust tilt). If you go with R1, you get a cheapest solution but none flexibility at all as tilt is fixed !

    Right :) Thanks for correction Heinz, you get tilt selected when you buy it plus horizontal/0º by reversing vertical arm of the head :)

    Nikos,

    http://store.nodalninja.com/index.ph...i-package.html This would be the best choice: choose for Canon 15mm lens ring and 60° Mini Rotator. This will fit your needs right now. Mini Rotator are tiny little new rotators. The whole combination is very light. Stops around are fixed. But you can buy an extra ring for more or less shots around in case you change your lens. Easy to change.

    Alternative as Rotator would be RD4, which is bigger and heavier, but allows to change number of stops on the flight by changing the detent knob to another hole.

    But to be fair to you, Zenith shooting specially indoors is not a plug and play job. You can try to close the zenith by tilting up and take your shots around @ +5° for example and take a handheld Nadir shot. Another option would be to shoot around @ 0° and then you can use the R1 Zenith Position, which moves the lens out of NPP by falling down and backwards. To correct it, you have to raise your center column and move the tripod forward to get back to old NPP position to avoid stitching errors when shooting inside. There is also a possibility to shoot a Nadir by moving the tripod aside and shoot back to your old tripod position.

    There will be another "RS-1" panohead, similar to NN3 but it is not available right now. You can use your lens ring and Mini Rotator on the new one too.

    We use the R1/R10 we recommened with success with Zenith and Nadir shots, even on poles or monopods.

    Have look to this link too: www.vrwave.com
