Panoramic Heads and Carbon Fiber Aerial Poles - it's what this website is all about.
What is parallax?Simply put parallax is the shifting of foreground to background objects when a camera/lens rotates horizontally or vertically. Every lens as a special optical point we like to refer as the no parallax point (NPP). Other names for the NPP are Nodal Point (hence Nodal Ninja) or Entrance pupil. If you rotate the camera/lens around this optical axis parallax would be eliminated.
Why do you need a panoramic tripod head? Unlike typical camera tripod mounts, our panoramic heads, once setup properly allows for the camera/lens to rotate around the NPP. When it comes time to join the images together, using stitching software, the end result will be one larger "seamless" photograph.
Why so many panoramic head choices? Since 2004 we've been listening to the needs of panoramic photographers. They suggest tweaks to existing products and those with more specializes needs suggesting new products. We now have products that fit a particular industry (Real Estate, Engineering etc) as well as type of photography (Gigapixel imagery, HDR etc).
With one of the largest selection of panoramic tripods heads on the market we're confident we can fit you exactly to the right product. The menu bar on the left includes a category called "Recommendations". Here we suggest what panoramic tripod head best fits your needs.
Here's a snapshot of what fits what: * If using exclusively fisheye lens (4.5mm-17mm) the R1/R10 series is the best choice. * With compacts and small DSLR's up 50mm, look to NN3 series. * If shooting up to 100mm, or HDR look to the more robust the NN4 series. * 200mm or more, look at the M series
