Shooting Panos with a Monopod
- Hey guys,
I was hoping some of you may be able to offer some tips or point me
towards some information on shooting 360 panos with a monopod.
Currently I own a Nodal Ninja 2 and a Canon 300D and intend to purchase
a Tokina 10-17mm fisheye lens. How do I take all the shots using a
monopod? Is it possible to take enough shots without changing the angle
of the camera? For example, if I am taking a pano from an elevated
height, will I need to bring the camera down and change the angle on
the Nodal Ninja before elevating it again to take enough shots to
complete the 360? If so how can this be done with accuracy?
Your suggestions or advice is much appreciated.
- I bought one of these pole levellers from Manfrotto. It's designed to attach
to their autopole system so is perfect for monopods. It's much smaller than
the fence pole levellers I've seen, was really cheap and well made.

Here is how I did it: I went to Home Depot and bought a "fence pole
leveler." about $5 as near as I can remember. It uses a rubber band
to attach. Place it at at eye level.
