Pano head for Gitzo 1325

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Brian Stirling, Nov 22, 2004.

  1. I'm thinking about adding a pano head to a tripod I don't have just
    yet and would appreciate any advise on the options.

    I have a Canon 1D Mark II and may eventually add a 1DS Mark II a few
    months from now and plan on using the pano head for the obvious
    purpose of creating panos but also as a method of stitching
    several/many 8MP or 16MP images to produce higher resolution images to
    compete with MF and even LF.

    I would imagine that being able to adjust the camera/lens so that
    rotation occurs about the nodal point would be highly recommended and
    any pointers in this area would also be appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Brian

    I have the middle Manfrotto pano head and like it a lot. Kaidan is also
    big in pano heads, but they tend to build heads for each camera/lens
    combo. The Manfrotto heads are adjustable for just about any combo.

    This site is good for adjusting your head:
    http://panoguide.com/howto/panoramas/setup_panohead.jsp

    The rest of that site is pretty good for learning about shooting panos.
