303SPH
MH057A5-LONG
The 303SPH is a multi-row panoramic photography head. It has
sliding plates to locate the camera over the panoramic axis of
rotation, plus a sliding plate which rotates around the front/back
tilt axis. This allows the camera to be rotated on both horizontal
and vertical axes around the camera/lens nodal point, so multi-
row panoramic photo sequences (cubic VR photos) can be taken
accurately and easily. Using the 303SPH ensures that software used
for photo stitching produces a precisely composed VR environment
with minimum post-production intervention or software correction.
All plates and rotation index guides on the 303SPH have clear
markings to allow easy repositioning of the camera once nodal point
position has been identified and noted down. The 303SPH’s vertical
bracket can be unlocked and rotated through 90° (then re-locked)
so that the head takes up less space in transport, and so that the
sliding plate mechanisms are protected against knocks and bumps.
The 303SPH comes complete with an extra set of sliding plates for
use with cameras of different sizes.
The MH057A5-LONG advanced panoramic photography head is
built around the 300N pan rotation unit, with sliding plates for nodal
point positioning and an elbow bracket to allow the camera to be
mounted in either portrait or landscape orientation. It incorporates
precise geared movements of the two sliding plates used to locate
the camera over the panoramic axis of rotation, adding greater
accuracy to nodal point positioning. The micro-positioning plates
provide extremely precise fingertip adjustment via a gear drive
system; a release button disengages the gear drive to facilitate rapid
movement of the plates when required. The plates are also longer
than those of the 303 head, which helps to make this head suitable
for use with larger traditional or digital SLR cameras equipped with
standard or wide angle lenses, or for medium format cameras.
