    Hi all,

    I want to impove my panos.

    I am thinking of the manfrotto QTVR303

    Its 250 and i want to know if any one has a pano head and are they worth it.

    Regards
    Ian

    If you are unsure and just want to try panoramas first - but seriously - try the Panosaurus..

    It is available in the UK and I thinks it's about 85:00. Google will locate a dealer for you.

    It works very well and has all the necessary adjustments and even allow setting the Nodal Point on the lens you intend using.

    HTH's...

    red door are excellent

    to be honest the stitching software is that good nowadays it will cope with most landscape shots on any head

    look at link I have found this will cope with hand held panos quite good

    Don't discount some of the free software out there for stitching panoramas. My two personal favourites are Autostitch and Hugin.

    I haven't used the latest versions for ages but Hugin used to be able to use Tiffs and you can manually select the same points in two corresponding images to get even better results.

    Worth a try before spending any money!
