What panohead for Nikon D7000 + Fisheye Nikkor 10.5 mm f/2.8G?

Hi guys,

 

I am new here. I have a question and I need your help to answer it. I am putting together all necessary equipment for shooting real estate and later commercial and landscape panoramas. I am looking for a quality panohead that will last and I can use it in many years to come. If there is no one panohead that will be suitable for all that I mentioned aerlier than I need a panohead that will be perfect for real estate panos for now. Also I would like to see what you would suggest for a quality tripod. I would like to acquire it asap and any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Tripod: Manfrotto. But at the end of the day a tripod is a tripod

Panohead: Nodal Ninja. In my opinion. The best of the best.


Hope That Helps

Thank you Brazil. I was actually considering Nodal Ninja Ultimate M1-S w/RD16-II. I was also looking at the Ultimate-Pro Omni-Pivot Package from Really Right Stuff. Does anyone use one of these panoheads? Is it worth spending more money and buy Ultimate-Pro over Nodal Ninja M1? With regards to the tripod I am considering Manfrotto too. I guess I am on the right track so far.

Does anyone else have other suggestions and/or opinions? I just don't want to miss anything. Thanks.

Is anyone familiar with this issue of the Nodal Ninja M1 rail showing in the pictures? I just don't want to buy a pano head to find out later that I have an issue with the rail showing in the pictures. I am considering NN Ultimate M1-S or NN Ultimate M1-L. I am just not sure if I need the longer rails for the equipment I have and the panos I want to produce. Here are the links to the NN forum talking about this problem.Thx.

Do you guys know why a line of text gets split when I use "-"? See above where I was listing pano head models I am considering. Very strange.
