The Sunex Panoramic Rotator is designed exclusively for use with Sunex SuperFisheye lenses to achieve precise lens rotation about its nodal point, eliminating the need to determine the location of the nodal point manually. It has 3 detent positions at 120 degrees each to create full 360 degree panorama images and virtual tours (stitching program is not included). Typical applications include real estate sales, hotel and convention exhibits and security/surveillance applications.

    Sunex CMTRO3 Reviews

    Panoramic Rotator for Sunex SuperFisheye Lenses is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Easy This is about as simple and easy as panoramic rotators get. There is another review here where the guy couldn't figure out which was it lines up, not sure what he's doing. This lens only goes in one way and it stays in the perfect position. If for some reason your camera is turned a little to one side or the other the software you are using will fix this issue with zero problems. This is the simplest way to do panoramas. 3 shots and done. Just be careful not to over-tighten the screws when you put it together.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very heavy duty and weigh too heavy No more need to find the nodal point in the field! This excellent rotator has 3 rotation stops and is good enough to merge 3 circular FishEye images to create a perfect 360 degree panoramic picture

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from massive and extremly heavy duty :-) This Rotator is the best piece i've ever had in my hand. It feels like a piece of metal and it also looks like it would have been carved out of one block.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better I use this rotator for 3-shot panoramas with Sunex Superfisheye. While it is great that it is designed specifically for that lens and correct rotation axis is set automatically, it is a very mediocre mechanical design and quality of manufacture and assembly. It is also way too heavy. Due to the design and parts used (spring ball plunger and pressed-in ball buttons) and the fact that the buttons are not pressed in precisely, there are 3 easily felt stops for each of the rotational positions instead of of one. That means you have to watch it each time to make sure it was rotated into correct position exactly 120 degrees. Also, when arrived, the rotator has two loose bolts that had to be tightened and was too hard to turn to the point that the tripod would move while rotating the rotator if not carefully held by two hands. I had to take it apart and shorten the spring. There are much better rotator designs and precision of machining out there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Easy This is a simple easy rotator for the Sunex 5.6mm lens. It does a great job of a simple task. I also have a 360 Precision, it does a better job, because you can shoot a Zenith shot also, but overall this is prefect for what it does, if you want something simple and easy. Its also light.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as I expected I've managed to get good seamless panoramas with this rotator and the sunex fisheye, but it's not 'plug and play', because of some quirks with the rotator. There's no center mark on the fisheye lens to line up with this rotator. I can't understand this omission. They are meant to fit together. The rotator has a center marking arrow, but the lens has only the sunex logo at the center. There should be a line to match with the arrow. Also, when clasping the metal brackets together over the lens, there appears to be an alignment problem. With the lens on, the ends of curved metal brackets do not meet - there's a gap. Machining quality control issue or design flaw? Who knows. Also, getting the bracket off the lens requires use of the L-shaped key. Minor hassle. Not sure if it's just my copy or they're all like this, but mine feels like an unfinished project from the workshop! That said, I'm keeping mine and still use it, but it pretty much stays attached to the fisheye. Getting the lens centered on that thing is not a precision feature of the rotator and lens combo. Choosing the right software to get all this converted to great panoramas, is another story and another mission! It's all possible, but a warning that you won't get there straight out of the box with this equipment.
