These are two very nice panos .
I assume that the panos are a result of stitching . Is that correct ? ? ?
If so , can you please describe the gear you use to mount your camera and how you find the nodal point .
I want to work with panoramic photography this year , but am still very unshure , what gear to buy .
I will use my SW612P HORSEMAN camera , but also want to use my HASSELBLAD 503CW + CFV back .
I will carefully check all components .
My tripod head is an ARCASWISS CUBE C1 with two swivel levels which can serve as a pano head . It takes a sliding rail with the ARCASWISS profile .
NOVOFLEX has a "macro rail" with an ARCA profile which then would perfectly fit .
As NOVOFLEX is only about 60kms away from my place , I will take my gear and check with their equipment .
There are two obstacles with the gear . The ARCA rail adaption is assymetric and the battery of the CFV back might interfere with any rail .
Especially when using the SWC with the special battery adapter .
I will report the result .
You use AUTOPANO PRO software .
Is that software any better than PSCS4 ? ? ?
How many images did you stitch together and how much overlap did you take . ? ? ?
Yesterday I visited NOVOFLEX . A small company with phantastic precision gear , mostly for DSLR cameras .
But I came home with good gear to start panorama stitching with MF digital .
Just one row panoramas (at the moment)
Have a look to my SWC 905 with my pano gear . The nodal point is not set in this image . It is just to show , that I can use the CUBE C1 as a panorama head .
The C1 has 2 swivel levels . One lower one and the upper one as "panorama head" .
As you can see , when using the Q-Plate the other way round , there is enough space for the battery bracket + battery when using a SWC .
What I need now is a decent weather . Today it was foggy all day .
It is only one rail for "one row panoramas" .
For "two or three row panos" an additional rail + panohead is required as for all other pano gear brands .
If I manage to level the cube properly for the lower swivel plane , I could try to do "two or three row panos" without additional gear .
I might try one day .
The cube is very easy to use , but I got the cube mainly for my LF camera . Now as I find that head so easy to use , it replaces my ARCA B1 ball head.
