Long rails that can accommodate long zooms and mid-size telephoto lenses. If you feel like it you can add a bubble level beneath it on your tripod with micro adjustments, but you can also use a lose one.

Weight, size and cost is another issue. Simple and effective entrance pupil adjustment. But I would personally feel cheated after spending that kind of money knowing I can’t get a clear shot of the ground with all that engineering unless I modify it to Eric Rougier’s but that’s now doubling your cost. Tools Required For Assembly: It’s a precise piece of equipment with lots of obvious engineering.

I haven’t had to deal with Manfrotto. Adjusting is so easy, every part of the head is numbered and has a ruler so once you get the things right if you write them down you will always get them right.

Manfrotto SPH review

However, it worked fabulously. For the last 2 heads I had to fix some mounting problems. Even then it’s not enough in my personal opinion. The images are to simply illustrate the length achievable on the upper arm of the SPH. Slide the camera rail back down and adjust for the entrance pupil.


Something this big no manufacturer is going to supply you with one. The N panoramic head’s ease of use and flexibility is unmatched. Also you have to move the upper rail by the upper bracket assembly. The dual safety-catch on the brackets with quick release, to protect your valuable camera, manfrottk ingeniously designed. It lacks reference points, the stairs usable and readable.

Then I pointed the camera down, as if I’m shooting the nadir, and adjusted the camera’s center focusing point 303sh the pivotal screw of the VR head. We have used spherical photography in many settings.

You do it by joining JuzaPhotoit is easy and free! Manfgotto also lacks the precise reference points. It is not who has impressed me, but still it’s a solid object even if the cons are not few. Do you want add your opinion?

I used it on a 30sph with battery grip and the camera would move since there 303zph nothing other than one mounting screw holding the camera in position. With more than members, there is space for everyone, from the beginner to the professional. I had to take a gear piece from an older tripod with me and make it as a converter between my current tripod and the base of the device.


From the small rough movies we could make in the late 90s to the huge super detailed full screen panoramas of today. The mounting brackets have marked out points to aid in nodal calibration and remembering set-up points for various cameras.

The lens is not set at the correct entrance pupil. Then, not to forget, you would lose the nodal calibration. It is a more of a side project we have kept alive through our interest and all the projects we have been asked to do.

Extra set of rails and screws. Also in this manfrtoto the measurement is random, no point of reference if not a sign “center” that serves no purpose since no one knows how far the lens is from this point. For it’s build quality it’s probably worth it.

NOTE on images below: You need to set the nodal point position 303soh, having a lot of fortune.
