Theory of panorama head
Another of photographic equipment that is very useful for landscapes, is panorama head. It is important to use this device, the Nodal point of the lens, must be coincide with the axis of rotation the camera. Because, I build two axis rotation for it, so removed, the vertical and horizontal error parallax. Also according to being the multilevel (multi-row panorama), flat and spherical error will be eliminated. Easy to use, stability, accuracy, size and weight is the main feature of this device.
L-shaped form causes it is suitable for a variety of spherical panorama, perspective-corrected flat or classic cylindrical panoramas, Even when heavy professional DSLR or film camera is used. In both the upper and lower axis, rotation is possible with an accuracy of 2.5 degrees. By screw handheld, movements are completely locked and will not move.

This device is equipped with three rails in three axes XYZ space. They are calibrated with an accuracy of 1 mm. These parts are easily moved and become fixed with screws handheld in the desired location.
Fisheye lenses up to 150 mm can be used this panorama head. In top rail can be mounted standard Hasselblad mount. For below of vertical axis has been considered standard Hasselblad mount. In addition to the Hasselblad mount, screw mount on a standard tripod types, 1/4in and 3/8in also embedded below this axis.
This device has been designed so that, it is compact and completely closed by a screw handheld. It is therefore very suitable for putting in a variety of the backpack.
By removing the top rail, and installing it on the bottom axis, you can put the camera in landscape mode.
