Manfrotto 303 Overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto 303 QTVR Panoramic Head Kit permits the photographer to take sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis with his or her camera either in portrait or landscape position, and with the nodal point of the camera/lens in line with the center of rotation to ensure that parallax effects do not cause problems during image stitching.

Designed for Quick Time Virtual Reality technology (which allows virtual scenes to be created by computer from panoramic digital or digitized images that are simply stitched together), the QTVR kit incorporates two sliding plates to position the camera on the panoramic axis of rotation. The sliding plates provide forward, back and side adjustment for precise positioning. The system is suitable for most 35mm SLR, medium format still and digital still cameras using wide angle or standard lenses.

The kit is based around the 300N panoramic head which allows the operator to set 10 different angles of rotation; 5,10, 15, 20, 24, 30, 36, 45, 60 & 90° (respectively equivalent to 72, 36, 24, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6 & 4 shots) spanning 360 degrees rotation using the engraved, graduated scale markings for reference. The kit features double sliding plates with 3.1" (80mm) of adjustment for precise nodal point positioning.

    303 QTVR Panoramic Head Kit - Supports 11 lb (5kg) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very useful for panoramic heads! Getting used to this head is pretty easy after you read the instructions and get used to the functionality for the first time. The construction is solid and sturdy, everything works smooth and is great. One thing that would be great with this head would be if it came with a built in level.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellen product super precise and solid That's the best panoramic head I have had: you can do anything in a repeatable and reliable way. I use it mainly for virtual tour photography. I never miss a shot. Extremely strong but (of course) somewhat heavy: it needs a stable tripod.
