Equipment list must be somewhere

I have looked over the threads and could not find equiptment lists.  If anyone could help me get together a system, I would be more than greatful.

I plan on purchasing a coolpix 5700 and nikon fCE9 fisheye.  I know I need a rotator, a tripod and maybe a pan head?  If anyone can recommend me an affordable system for that camera, please let me know.  The quickpanIII System and bracket are out of my budget at $800.

Thank you in advance,
Christian

If anyone has a full set of equiptment, I would love to purchase it.

Thank you much,

Please refer to http://www.easypano.com/product/equipments.htm

Kaidan QuickPan CS only cost $229.95 (http://www.kaidan.com/Detail.bok?no=47). Agnos MrotatorB will work for you at less price. (http://www.agnos.com/catalogo.htm)

Good Luck!

Kaidan,

I had a look at that but the site recommends that the the camera: coolpix 5700 and nikon FCE9 fisheye, be used with thier quickpan III system twin axis camera bracket configuration.  That costs about $800, which I cant come near affording iwth everything else.  The reason why they say to use this is because that camera system will have part of the bracket in the image Kaidan QuickPan CS.

Thanks,
Christian

You should use the Agnos MrotatorB and matching support bracket.

Forget the Kaidan it is overpriced and the customer service just lately is very poor.

Hi Christian,

I use the Nikon cp4500/FC-E8/Agnos Mrotator A panohead and Manfroto & KC 141 tripod. Therefore i'll be biased and say... ur cam and lens setup...is cool... my tripod cost €150,- and is worth it. Agnos A works well for me as doe the rest of my workflow... amybe ur workflow is incorrect. Have alook around this forum to discover the needed fils or contact me, ;-) rob


If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.

Err, MrotatorB NOT "A" for the FC-E9

Tripod? Manfrotto or Velbon are favoured.
