    Sunwayfoto CR-30 reviews

    CR-30 360 Panorama Head Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pano head for small cameras I'm surprised by the negative reviews about this pano head. I'm doing virtual tours photography for business and previously owned a Manfrotto 303SPH.This pano head is incredibly small, lightweight and easy to set up (unless you have zero knowledge about shooting pano with a pano head). A couple of things worth having in mind before buying:- great for value (construction, precision, durability, weight, volume)- stick to small cameras (e.g. a Sony a6000) with compact lenses- mount it on a tripod with a ball head, the level meter of the cr-30 isn't reliable (the problem described by another reviewer about levelling issues)- use a remote control, the side effect of light material is less stable set up

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid construction but limitations on use The CR-30 360 panorama head has many features to recommend it but also has some limitations that detract from ease of use and versatility. The head is sturdy and well made in general and will easily support a small consumer camera, micro 4/3rds camera, or small DSLR. The panning head turns smoothly and locks securely with or without detents at certain degrees of rotation. The millimeter markings on the scales are crisp and easy to read. Now the not so good news. The head comes with no instructions whatsoever. Not only is there no explanation how to assemble the components but there is no explanation how to use the product. The assembly is not too difficult if you study the photo of the unit on the B&H website. However, to use the product to make accurate panoramas you will need to search the web and read articles about how to calibrate the head for your lenses and then how to pan to achieve frames that will stitch together well. Luckily there are several good articles on the web concerning these techniques. Another annoying but not serious concern is that an allen wrench, provided with the head, is needed to attach the mounting plate to the camera. This mounting plate is then attached to the head. I am concerned this small wrench is likely to get lost in my camera bag. Fortunately, a small coin, such as a penny can also be used to turn the screw that attaches the mounting plate. My other objections are more difficult to remedy. In order to make photos that will stitch seamlessly the near entrance pupil of your lens must be located on the axis of rotation. The two slides of the head allow moving your camera body along two mutually perpendicular axes until the lens pupil is in the correct position relative to the vertical axis of rotation used for most panoramas. However, if you want to take multi-row panoramas then the entrance pupil of the lens also needs to lie on the horizontal axis of rotation. The mounting plate does not allow this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every dollar I used this for real estate photography and Virtual Tours and I have been very pleased with the purchase. Folds up rather small and can be carried in the camera bag. For the valuethis is a great deal!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small Although it's very compact, it's limited on the lens range it can help out with. Other than that it's a good purchase to start out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for the price Just getting into virtual tour photography and didn't want to spend a ton on a pano head. Using this one with a Nikon D7100 and it handles the weight of the camera and a Tokina 12-24 well. Little hard to decipher how to put it together but take a look at the website photo for ideas. Works great but you need a ball head and a sturdy tripod to use it properly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not professional equipment Looks great in photos but not a professional piece of equipment. May be OK if you only want to take a panoramic photo once in a while. Flimsy design. I will only be making panoramic photos a couple of times, so I will deal with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK I bought this pano head for real estate photography and it works although setting it up just right is difficult so I would be curious to compare it to another pano head. Also they included a tripod brushing/adapter that didn't fit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Level issue The CR-30 360 was great for the cost...the issue I found was I cound't seem to keep the unit totally level as I would rotate on it's base.
