RE: [PanoToolsNG] Pinnacle VR universal pano head now available
My apologies to everyone for the confusion. I had sent out two emails, one
to the PanoToolsNG group and the other Bcc to a different group of people
who had contacted me over the last several months offline. I have an email
rule that puts all correspondence related to Pinnacle VR into a separate
folder, so I didnt realize that Pedro's reply had come back from my
PanoToolsNG post. My bad for not paying better attention. I really have been
experiencing email problems the last couple of days. Not sure if it's
related to my computer (at home) not being able to boot up now.

How can you say that you're not sure if it went trough?
You posted the Pinnacle VR pano head announcement to the list a couple
After many months of design and feedback, I am happy to announce that the
new Pinnacle VR universal pano head is now officially available!/ ......
One member asked you a pertinent question:
/would you kindly explain how to use a 200mm lens for pano work, with
10 degree increments, please?
You answered it:
Excellent point! I can't believe I missed that. A 200mm lens has a hfov of
10.2855, but the camera is mounted in portrait mode, which only has a fov of
6.8673. I'll fix that tonight. The longest lens with a full frame chip would
be a 135mm.
And now you don't remember all this and post the announcement again?
Post this repeatedly won't sell you more pano heads!!!
