In the panorama field, hardware is also part of the success. You can discuss here about it: camera, computer, pano head, anything

tripod?

by itsrichphoto » Wed Mar 18, 2015 2:52 am

Is there a tripod that has been specifically designed for shooting 360 sphericals? If the legs were less wide, but still stable, it would make the down view more visible without the need to patch the nadir point!

Did your mother never tell you there is no such thing as a stupid question? I have done 300 panos in the last week, I have to think of things that would make shooting more automated yet better... Don't you think it would be better if there was a tripod specially designed for the task underhand? I am surprised nobody has thought about it or capitalised on it before

The Nodal Ninja nadir adapter was designed to assist with shooting nadir shots for easier nadir patching.

Do you have a Nodal Ninja pano head?

Hi,

We offer especially for our MK PanoRing a tripod with long center column (50cm) and a small plate (3.2 cm) for the ring, the goal is the leveling ball between the legs => reduced nadir footprint :) .

MK PanoTripod - Made in Germany

Best regards from Germany

Marc

I have been looking around! I met (i can't remember his name) at vrla and he had this!
http://freedom360.us/shop/f360-basic-ball-tripod/

It is ideally for 6x go pros. He also sells a stackable weight system with 3/8 screws to make monopods more bottom heavy.

There are also these
