          Comments about Nodal Ninja NN4 Panoramic Tripod Head Starter Package:

          Pretty slick little tool - worked great right out of the box, albeit after a bit of setup. Requires setup for each lens/camera combination, but making marks on the pano arms helps reduce changeover time the 2nd time around. Great for a dedicated lens/camera combo, but changing lenses in the field can be tricky (especially in the dark). Rotation of pano head became sticky and troublesome on 3rd use.

              Did a little research when getting into 360 panorama photography and this was a well-recommended, affordable solution. Easy to use, well built and fairly compact, this device is an excellent value. Our business has already paid it off with our first 360 real estate shoot.

                  This is an easy to use, well thought out panoramic head. I mostly take 3-4 shot stitches in portrait orientation, and I don't have a complaint. As another reviewer said, those with very demanding needs might want something more elaborate, and perhaps mechanized, but this is a solid product that won't get in your way.

                    Comments about Nodal Ninja NN4 Panoramic Tripod Head Starter Package:

                    Are there better panorama devices? Absolutely, but they cost a lot more. At this price point (especially if you want to minimize parallax) there is no competition. I improved it a bit with an arca-style clamp that I had sitting around. If you had to make hundreds of stitched photographs on short notice, it makes sense to spend the extra money on the more expensive model or perhaps the motorized version but for the occasional pano or Brenizer, this is light, travels well, and works as promised.

                      Comments about Nodal Ninja NN4 Panoramic Tripod Head Starter Package:

                      I've used this head to take 360x180 full spherical panoramas and some partial spherical panoramas with my 5D Mark III. It's so much faster and easier to get all the needed shots for a large panorama!

                      It's worked great with a variety of lenses. I've successfully used it from 24 up to 100mm focal lengths on full-frame.

                      It's lighter and cheaper than some of the alternatives, but still solidly built and easy to use. It comes with some extra parts and a nice carrying case.

                        I use this to make single row panoramas with my Olympus e5 DSLR and it works great. No more parallax problems! Well constructed and easy to use, you can even buy alternate plates to accommodate an area style plate from Nodal Ninja's website.
