Panoramic Tripod heads Easypano JTS-Rotator SPH

As a professional panorama photographer, except the DSLR camera and fisheye lens, a panoramic tripod head is also very essential. Panoramic tripod head would be quite helpful in shooting high quality panoramas due to two features. First, it is easy for users to set the camera position on nodal point, which is the intersection of horizontal axis and vertical axis. This design offers best performance of stability and precision to the keen amateur and professional photographers. Users can rotate his camera horizontally with vertical axis unchanged, avoiding the problem of parallax. Second, a panoramic tripod head also makes panorama processing easier and more systematic. It will save you lots of time when stitching images with Panoweaver. Easypano JTS-Rotator SPH is an easy-to-use panoramic tripod head, which is worth your priority selection.
Working principle of Easypano JTS-Rotator SPH
The basic technology that makes Easypano JTS-Rotator SPH easy and accurate to shoot panoramas is fairly simple. Easypano JTS-Rotator consists of three basic parts: Horizontal Rotator, Stand and Camera Sliding Plate. As illustrated in picture right, when the Horizontal Rotator and the Stand are added to a tripod, the camera fixed on the Sliding Plate can be rotated horizontally 360 degree in the same point relative to the position of tripod. We can also adjust the node of JTS-Rotator SPH to shoot images of ceiling and floor, so that we can get a professional 360-degree panoramic photo horizontally and vertically.

JTS Rotator Installation

Step 1:

First, remove the base (A) from the panorama Rotator and install it onto the tripod (B).

Step 2

Then, place the Rotator Stand part (A) onto the base, turn the base screw (B) to adjust the firmness and position of the Stand for further nodal point adjustment. You can align the horizontal level of tripod and Rotation by checking the green water drop of gradienter attached on the Stand. (Shown as picture)

Step 3:

Counter-clockwise turn the regulating cap (A) to loose the Rotator Stand, meanwhile, check the dial gauge and rotate the Stand to 90 degrees(B) and then turn the regulating cap clockwise to fix the angle of Rotator Stand.

Step 4:

After the Stand angle fixed, remove the Sliding Plate from the Stand and connect it to the bottom of camera (Shown as right picture) Please align border (A) of Sliding Plate along with the surface of camera display screen (shown as picture) to ensure the correct horizontal angle.

Step 5:

After the Sliding Plate fixed on camera, install the camera back onto the Stand and clockwise rotate the knobs (A,B) to fix the Sliding Plate , thus the camera is stable and prevented from sliding and shaking. (Shown in left picture)

Step 6:

The vertical direction of camera can be fixed by regulating the angle of Stand, the camera will be directed to ceiling or floor if the angle are regulated to 0 or 180 degrees, which is quite convenient to shoot ceiling and floor. (Shown as picture)

Step 7:

The horizontal direction can be adjusted by regulating the knob (A) of turntable which is between rotator and tripod. You can check the dial gauge at the bottom of Rotator and loose the rotator, turn the turntable to the desired angle, then tighten the two knob (A) to fix the angle.

Step 8:

The position and vertical angel of camera lens can be regulated by the 3 screws(A,B,C), it's simple to operate.

Step 9:

The camera lens was fixed on the rotator (shown as picture). As indicated above, the vertical angle and position of camera can be fixed by regulating the Stand angle and Sliding Plate position, in this way, the nodal point is fixed. In addition, the horizontal level of camera and lens can be adjusted through the turntable on base. You can align the nodal point to base axis by adjusting the knob at base bottom so that the stitching effect of ceiling and floor can be optimized.
