300N
303SPHUK
The MH057A5 pan head permits the photographer to take sequential
constant-angle shots around a single axis with his or her camera
either in portrait or landscape position, and with the nodal point
of the camera/lens in line with the centre of panoramic rotation to
ensure that parallax effects do not cause problems during image
stitching. It is built around (and includes) the 300N panoramic unit,
adding a system of sliding horizontal and vertical plates for accurate
positioning of the camera nodal point. The plates have engraved
index rules to make subsequent repositioning easier. The included
quick release elbow bracket lets the photographer use the portrait
orientation of the camera gaining vertical fi eld. The system is suitable
for most 35mm SLR still and digital stills cameras using wide-angle
or standard lenses.
The 300N panoramic rotation unit allows the photographer to take
sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis, an essential part
of achieving accurate and easy-to-stitch panoramic compositions.
The set positions of the 300N give ample choice of rotation angle and
so of number of photos needed to complete a 360° pan and cover
the most common requests of panoramic photographers depending
on the camera/lens equipment used. To make angle selection easier,
a “click-stop” selector screw is included and attached to a safety
cable to prevent it from being separated from the head and getting
lost. The 300N also comes complete with a secondary locking
screw which stops unwanted or accidental rotation of the head
when heavy or off-center equipment makes it less balanced or when
the head is used for non-horizontal rotation. The 300N can also be
used as a turntable base for object panoramas, or as a means of
reading the angle of rotation of camera pan movements in a range
of photography. A camera can be mounted on the panoramic unit
by adding one of a range of quick release, sliding or fixed plates or a
conventional geared, ball or 3-way head.
The 303SPHUK upgrade kit is essentially a 303SPH head without
the 300N Pan Rotation Unit or the plate attachment that locks onto
the 300N; by using these components from the old model 302 head,
photographers can use their existing pan head as a basis to build
a 303SPH-like product. Remember however that the 300N rotation
unit has been improved compared to that supplied with the original
302 family
