You can either use a RS-1/2 to shoot Zenith and Nadir in NPP. Or you can use the R1/R10 on top. QMM Quick Mount Mini Systems to mount and dismount easily. A Pole 2 Leveler. A tripod adapter. And a Lens Ring for your Nikkor 10.5. And to take all this away Pole 2 Case.
I do not know if you already have a rotator, best fit would be RD5 on top of tripod adapter
Hello! I'm sorry, but I'm a little confused! Why I can not use my NN3 for this type of production? Why do I need the RS-half or R1/R10? It has to do with the photo zenith and nadir? I would need more information on this type of production! How is the process?
The NN3 is heavier than the RS-1/2 and R1/R10?
How do I take a photo zenith with the RS-1/2 and R1/R10, using my D7000 and my 10.5mm? Which of the two is better for me using this equipment?
Pulley system operates with two rotators? One low and one up? What is right for the top?
Sorry for so many questions but I do not know the pole system!
The only panoheads you can shoot in NPP are RS-1 and RS-2 as well as on your NN3. R1 R10 are designed to shoot single row panos and shooting a Zenith and Nadir is complicated. The difference between RS-1 and RS-2 is the upper rotator. RS-2 uses the upper rotator of the NN4 with detend 15° presets. RS-1 does not have a preset and is free movable. This is the one I'd recommend for your equipment.
Once you mount a panohead to top of a pole, you should try to bring your weight as near to the pole as possible to avoid bending. The best way would be directly above the pole. Like R1 R10. Because there was a question for shooting Zenith and Nadir in NPP, Nick developed the RS-1.
Using your NN3, you have an upper rail instead of a clamp in place of the upper rotator. Mounting your camera on NN3, will bring the camera aside of top of pole. The lower rail is longer as well as the one of RS-1.
So RS-1 is a combination out of R1 and a smaller NN3 using a lens ring mount
With RS-1 you can just turn your camera around in NPP.
To get to know a little bit about shooting Zenith and Nadir with R1 /R10 have a look at this link: http://ge.tt/4uLm9Mb
What do you mean by Pulley System?
