Hey guys,

Slowely upgrading my pano kit.
Having just bought a Zeiss 50 f2, im looking now for a nodal slide + rotator + (in time) Lee's

Can someone give me some products to look up for the slide/rotator? Preferably ones that are cheaper than Nodal Ninja / Really Right Stuff

Thanks guys

are you just doing horizontal pans or doing vertical too? i dont think anyone offers a kit other then nodal ninja/rrs that i trust hanging my camera off vertically.

if you are just going horizontal pans, check ebay for a side rail, ive used arca swiss clamps and QR plates from a company called SUNWAYFOTO which is every bit as nice as my RRS stuff. But as a full disclaimer i have not used their slide so i cant comment on that specific product.

as for the panning base i would only trust something like manfrotto, rrs, kirk, etc...cheap knock offs seems to have centering issues it doesnt seem to rotate flat...

right now i am using a cheap macro rail i bought in hong kong as a nodal and its working fairly well, that could also be another option for you (dont pick up a cheap macro rail, the gearing isnt fine enough thats why its on nodal duty....redface.gif)

Was going to do panos both ways, with the camera in whatever orientation as needed (using an L-Plate)
More likely horizontal pans - but verticals are also frequent.

we might not be on the same page with the vertical pans (multi-stage is what RRS calls it). im assuming all your gear are on arca swiss dovetails....

anyways i did a quick amazon search and the horizontal slide rail is called DMP-200 while the 90 vertical is the DMC-200. the leveler/pan base i would buy from a more well known company like rrs or manfrotto, etc.

and apparently they also have a full kit link

Ah - those are multi-row pano kits.

Horizontal panos is as normal, verticle you just turn the ball head 90 degrees and do the same thing vertically.
I cannot justify the expense for a multi-row pano kit atm.

With the price of the SUNWAYFOTO, i might as well go for RRS for not much more too :/

you cannot just turn the ball head to 90 and pan vertically cause you lose your horizontal nodal point, you have to pick either you are going pan vertically or horizontally.

yea once you go multi-row it gets expensive fast, like i said just the rails are fairly cheap. all you really need to start panning is a pan base (leveler) and a slide if you are on a single row. hell if you actually take the time to level your tripod before you shoot you dont even need a pan base, just a nodal slide is enough.

Good question. I would recommend picking up a GRE study guide specifically for vocabulary. One good habit is to make yourself look up any word that you don't know every time you encounter one, no matter when and what you're reading - be it for school or forum posts (install a dictionary app on your phone for when you're out and about).

The math portion was the only section I studied for, with the verbal and written portion being not too difficult (strong language background, liberal arts degrees).

Couldnt you put the ball head to the side - and line up its plate horizontally/vertically.
then do the vertical using the pan base ontop of the ball heads plate.
As in the same setup just rotated 90 degrees?

Anyhow - horizontal/landscape is by far the priority.
