Nikon 950

Hi,

I have a Nikon 950 camera and I would like to use it to create spherical images.  However, the Kaidan 950 bracket doesn't support fisheye lenses.  I've tried using the Mack Bailey bracket, but haven't had much success with it.

What kind of bracket are you using with your Nikon 950 camera and fisheye lens?  How well does it work?

Thanks,

Max

Hey Max. you can use the kaidan 950 bracket with a little easy modification.  When you mount your camera in the universal slot on the bracket and then slide your camera back so the lens is over the nodal point, a small part of the bracket shows up in your pics.  I simply cut that small part from the end of the bracket and it works fine.  Kaidan didn't want to sell me one telling me it wouldn't work but I got the idea from others who did the same and it works great.  You can also make your own.  I have made several for my 990 and use the click stop from my 950 head.  Here's Philo's instructions: http://philohome.free.fr/lbracket/lbracket.htm

George,

Is there a chance that you would sell me one of your brackets?  I don't have the skill or tools to create one myself.

Thanks,

Max
