Removing/re-attaching camera to various pOk, I REALLY like this video tutorial, as it adds narration.
Make a Quicktime VR in 10 Minutes
Having said that, and still checking out various pano heads, I notice that this guy attaches the camera fairly quick and does not adjust the nodal point. I presume he did this once already for the camera/lens combination.
But what I like is each time he attaches the camera, it appears he does not have to redo- the nodal points. I like that feature, so the stupid question of the day is, is that pretty much the same with the recommended Mrotator or the new Nodal Ninja?
The rotator head itself in this video is a slick one, but not at almost $900 USD!
With the Sigma 8mm F3.5 I am going to get per Smooth's recommendation to go along with the Nikon D300 in its way, I presume that for a full 360x180 spherical, one does not need to capture images in a series of rows. If that is the case, why by a rotator head that has a second arm that rotates in a vertical plane?
That would just seem to add to the cost, complexity and weight, which on airlines now a huge issue. I travel to exotic tropical destinations and I spend over an hour with a scale and 3 checked bags.
