yoshiharra wrote:@ leifs, Vertical/Horizontal orientation is not the issue, just trying to get as close as possible to yaw axis, that's all. Looking into Novoflex as you suggested. The way I look at it is, since I have invested so much time and money; why not try to do the best I can to align the lens? As Andrew suggested, I might even modify the hardware. I am just curious, how others in this forum has solved similar problem.

I use one arm of the L-bracket with a camera screw comprising a bolt, a wing nut and a washer to mount the camera in a portrait orientation.

How to mount a Nikon D4 or D800 with battery grip (for longer operation) exactly in the NPP on the Merlin when shooting a 360Âº VR with a Fisheye ?
In technical specification, they indicate only 30mm space between bracket and vertical axis.
And in the compatibility list, all Nikon PRO DSLR are listed.
But there are virtually no DSLR fullframe lenses with only 60 mm diameter !
And this shown modification of the crown may not be normal operating procedures ?

Thanks for your informations.
I agree, for spherical Fisheye-Panos, manual operation is easy and no problem.
But using a robotic head, I can better explain the costs of my work
I shot panos with 1440 images manualy on an ARCA-head - but it's a pain!
So I'm looking for a not to expensive robotic head, that can do every type of panos, inclusive the 360Âº VR.
The D800 with battery grip take 5 images/s instead of 4 images without the grip. For HDR bracketing, this is a small advantage.
I read all this modifications of the dovetail clamp/crown, but could not find what's the maximum space, which can be achieved this way.
I wonder that no one try to move the vertical axis outside to enlarge the space. Presumably it is not possible.
