Hi all

I recently purchased the panogear, I have these lenses - canon 14mm, 50mm 100mm & 70-200mm L IS USM. My question is can i make full a spherical panorama (360x180) with
70-200mm lens, has anyone used this before on panogear with the 5dmark II body without colliding with the base. or which is the longest lens that we can use on panogear for full spherical panorama (360x180).

greetings

The Merlin is quite limited in lens-use. But 200mm for a sphere anyway isn´t clever on Merlin - it´s too slow and not precise enough . . . and your computer will have a very hard time too . . :cool:

The longest lens i used on a Merlin some years ago was 85mm - 144 Pictures with a 5D2. So i guess 200mm would be quite a lot more . . ;)

I suggest to use no more than 100mm on Merlin.

best, Klaus

As Klaus already sayd, the time your panoshoot needs is one aspect.

Another aspect id the physical length of your lens. the 70-200 is too long, so a) nodal point cannot be adjusted correctly, b) it will collide with tha merlin when you try to reach zenith or nadir. So my settings for the 70-200 are ftom -40 degree down upto 40 degree up. Only partial sphere can be done.

If you need shoot pattern, look here...
