vertical panoramas, not just horizontal. We shall see.
30 degrees per second is still 12 seconds for a complete rotation, which
is slow enough to indicate quite a high degree of gearing and, of course,
correspondingly high torque.
The flat, squat design should mean that if it is seated securely on a
rigid tripod it shouldn't waggle under an off-centre load.
For years my ideal was a circular image fisheye used on a monopod to
take four around with neither zenith nor nadir. But since I started
using the Pentax 10-15 zoom and need to take more shots and clearly
need both zenith and nadir, I have discovered just how good the Nodal
Ninja III is, and have REdiscovered full multi-exposure bracketing
for true HDR. This rotary intervalometer is going to make it all
much more automatic, if I can get it to work well with my Pentax
gear now I've decided to use nothing else.
