  1. Canon 6D with Sigma 8mm F3.5 / R10 and Travel Pole Accesories

    #1

    I have a Canon 6D with Sigma 8mm F3.5 fisheye which I currently use with a R10 and RD5 Rotator (F6165) and tripod Manfrotto 055xPROB.

    I want to buy Travel Pole (TP), but need to know the components and accessories required. (Maybe I require: Tripod Adapter for Travel Pole (F7306), Quick Mount Mini Adapter System, Ultimate R1/R10 Pole Adapter Kit, Travel Pole Advanced Level (F7159), Pole Rotator, Pole Foot Plate, Monopod Adapter for Travel Pole (MATP), etc.

    I want buy all required.

    Please help with my shopping cart.

    Thanks

    Tripod Adapter for Travel Pole (F7306):
    good if you want to use tripod

    Quick Mount Mini Adapter System:
    Good if you want to quickly switch between pole and RD5 and tripod adapter. You need 2 sets in total.

    Ultimate R1/R10 Pole Adapter Kit:
    Not needed for R10. R10 has 3/8" socket at the base already.

    Travel Pole Advanced Level (F7159):
    good to have

    Pole Rotator:
    Optional, RD5 is just fine

    Pole Foot Plate:
    Good for handheld. Maybe good idea to install the pole rotator on foot plate instead of RD5.

    Monopod Adapter for Travel Pole (MATP):
    Good to have a long monopod.

    Thanks for your support.

    Nope these two parts are part of the Tripod Adapter, this article is composed of one part that you screw on top of tripod, and the other one that is attached at bottom of central column of tripod ;)

    depends on your camera and lens and whether you want to skip one stop or two.

    You have two choices to use your combination: Min security, which means 3 shots around, or more security concerning overlap which means 4 shots around. Cause you want to use it on the "Travel Pole", you do not have a chance to easily return to the place you have taken the panorama. This means a ruined pano because of too little overlap will be lost or needs a lot of time at the computer. What does time mean taking 1 more shots around? Even when bracketing this is not a "timesaving" procedure.

    45°/8shots around skipping every second stop will give you a total of 4 shots around you are looking for.
    Being the "risky type", go for the 60° version.

    Anyway, you can use your RD5 as well with the Travel Pole Adapter as with a footplate. Use the silicone pads to close the unused detend holes on the RD5 for dust protection.

    Advantage of pole rotator versus RD5: The Pole Rotator is totally sealed, this means dust protected. Specially designed for use on top of a footplate.

    Thanks for the information.

    Other question:

    I need a remote control, you recommend any?

    I shoot in Manual (M) mode with bracketing (3 pictures for side)

    How I can control exposure with the remote control in the travel pole?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I use a Haenel for my nikon bodies. Be sure taking your set of bracketing shots it stops after the set has run through. This one does:

    Aperture as all the other settings should be set to manual.

    For full control have a look at camranger website: http://camranger.com/
