Manfrotto 300N Panoramic Head
The Manfrotto 300N Panoramic Head gives photographers the ability to take sequential constant angle shots on a single axis. This will allow stitching the still images together easier.
Other features include: * Upper dual graduated scale to set the angle of rotation to any of the following: 90degrees, 60degrees, 45degrees, 36degrees, 30degrees, 24degrees, 20degrees, 15degrees, 10degrees, 5degrees (respectively equivalent to 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 24, 36 or 72 photos to achieve a full 360degrees rotation based on 35mm film frames or 24x36mm CCD). * Lower graduated scale from 0degrees to 360degrees. * 3/8 female tripod fitting; 3/8 male screw head or plate fitting.
The 300N panoramic rotation unit allows the photographer to take sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis, an essential part of achieving accurate and easy-to-stitch panoramic compositions.
The set positions of the 300N give ample choice of rotation angle and so of number of photos needed to complete a 360° pan and cover the most common requests of panoramic photographers depending on the camera/lens equipment used. To make angle selection easier, a ''click-stop'' selector screw is included and attached to a safety cable to prevent it from being separated from the head and getting lost.
The 300N also comes complete with a secondary locking screw which stops unwanted or accidental rotation of the head when heavy or off-centre equipment makes it less balanced or when the head is used for non-horizontal rotation. The 300N can also be used as a turntable base for object panoramas, or as a means of reading the angle of rotation of camera pan movements in a range of photography.
A camera can be mounted on the panoramic unit by adding one of a range of quick release, sliding or fixed plates or a conventional geared, ball or 3-way head.
This Manfrotto 300N Panoramic Head comes with a full Manfrotto Australai warranty.
