Rotator for Nikon Coolpix 4500

Hello

Does anybody know a rotator, that can be used for Coolpix 4500? Can I use Kaidan rotator for Coolpix 990 or 995?

I think the good thing about the iPix rotator is that its perfect for capturing 2 fisheye pictures. on the other hand if you want to take 3 fisheye pictures probably kaidan is the better solution.

I've got a coolpix950 and a fisheye lens. I want to buy a new coolpix 4500 and panoweaver.

but what rotator is best? so what do you guys recomend.


Shame on you !

You should be ashamed of yourselves ! Even considering purchasing from the iPIX Store, just because "it's "just" a difference of <100$". Is this really how you folks think? You steal the tecnology (purchase the products) from iPIX but danm them to Hell for their licensing fees.

Good news.. Kaidan came out QuickPan III CS and they have the bracket for 4500, 5000 and even 5700.

Hello Jannik,

Jim Anders from kaidan posted this in another user group.

 

"The 4500 is a nice camera. We've been working with one for several weeks
now. It's affordable (about $650 US) and it works well. All the 99X lenses
and add-ons should be OK.

We're coming out with a mount for it that can be used with our KiWi and
QuickPan III tripod heads. The mount cradle will securely grip the curves of
the camera base and keep it from unwanted rotation. It should be available
in a few weeks."

 

Regards,

Joseph.
