    Hi all,

    As a beginner in 360 degree panos, I'm trying to find the no-parallax-point for the following setup:

    • Manfrotto MT055XPRO3
    • NN3 mkii
    • Nikon D3300
    • Samyang 8mm f3.5 UMC Nikon CS-II


    The D3300 isn't listed at: http://wiki.panotools.org/Entrance_Pupil_Database

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Hello Tevvie,

    it it is the lens that has the No Parallax Point, not the camera body, so you just need the settings for your Samyang 8mm lens.
    See http://hugha.co.uk/NodalPoint/Index.htm and click on the icon to look at the Samyang 8mm lens.
    Also take a look at http://michel.thoby.free.fr/SAMYANG/...%20report.html.
    The NPP will depend on how many shots round you take.
    With the Samyang 8mm it appears that the recommendation is 6 at 60 degree intervals so the NPP will be closer to the front than if you chose 8 shots round at 45 degree intervals.
    I prefer to shoot 8 round to get more overlap for more Control Point coverage and more scope using the Mask tool.

    Thanks Hugh. As you may know, I want to shoot stereo panos with one camera according to the method where you rotate the upper and lower rail 180 degree.

    In the tutorial it is mentioned that 10 - 12 shots are needed, with more shots even better. So according to the second link I need the NPP to be closer to the "body", right?
