    i have spent 15 minutes using the search feature but could not get a relevant response, although i know there are threads regarding this issue, which is how to take spherical panoramas using a nikon 14-24 2.8 zoom lens, i have a M1 with the rd16 base, am keen to upgrade both upper and lower rotators at some point, i have to get the nadir accessory, so if someone can point me to a guide or something that would be great.

    Cheers Nick, i have a D800e, i do not have a nadir adapter, is there a difference in the vertical expander and the nadir adapter? i have the m1 ultimate and the 14-24 lens, saw a spherical pano someone did with the same kit and am dead keen to have a go, lol, good money to be made with that trick, if you know of any good starting point instructional stuff would like that.

    Hi,

    You should use the Nadir Adapter plus the spacer you can order from Nick for your lens.

    It's not that easy shooting a pano to go out and do it like plug and play. You have to learn a lot.
    The links will help you.

    Thanks for that, i will start with getting the kit from Nick, i seem to remember a year or so ago that there was a thread specifically about the issues faced with making spherical pano's with the 14-24 and M1 that i thought would be a good place to start my research, anyway i am sure it will be ok.

    What camera plate are you using? The vertical extender is lighter and cheaper. But it only add extra vertical clearance. The Nadir adapter however allows you to quickly swing out the camera to take an unobstructed view. Excellent accessory for taking nadir image at low light.
    You don't need to replace the rotators.
