- Nov 4, 2008That looks really scary. Have you ever had an accident?
I prefer using a tripod with a center column, then you can raise it and
swing it back over the nadir, and use a counter weight on the center columns
This is very stable. I don't mark the tripod footprint, but I probably
should, as sometimes I don't get enough coverage.
Viewpoint is good, even for our methods, to handle any unfortunate parallax
errors. Or it lets you be a little sloppier and quicker.

I guess most of us who use a fullframe fisheye take -10 or even -15 down
completely removes the need for a downshot with the head in it.
For the very small area left in the nadir you do not even need to dismount
the camera if
you use my method.
Taking a perfect nadir is in most cases done in less than 30 seconds by
tilting the tripod.
You can do it without any support as long as you do not need very long
And you can even stitch it in PTGui without using viewpoint.
