Manfrotto 303 SPH : Specifications and Opinions

manfrktto This head is absolutitely unprecise, impossible to set the camera exactly where I need because the scales are usefulness. I have tried other panoramic heads and can assure your that this is your choice 303sh you want professionally done panoramas.

Talking about cost how much more is it to add a bubble level? It’s huge, bulky and awkward to pack. The lower image shows what is required for a nadir shot that will give you enough image to work with. NOTE on images below: It’s a precise piece of equipment with lots of obvious engineering. No hassle of buying upgrades or anything. Tools Required For Assembly: The manual is maanfrotto to give you a start ahead. It also lacks the precise reference points. No Upper arm detent stop: The upper rotator rotates very smooth.

Rosauro Photography – SPH VR Head Review, Panoramas, Toronto Virtual Tour

Rated 5 out of 5 by jfk from Excellent Pan Head Purchased this head and before i bought it i must admit i was a bit skeptical. Lower bracket has center point conveniently marked out to aid in nodal calibration.

I could go on to list building mabfrotto, but it seems clear that this is not SPH makes life easier but 3003sph. I simply used a carpenter’s square and Manfrotto’s double-bubble to initially adjust the nodal point. Then, not to forget, 303sp would lose the nodal calibration. Well I must say i am impressed! Through the years we have owned several panoramic heads, but always come back to Manfrotto.

Have a leveling device, like the Manfrotto double-bubble level 2mounted on the hot shoe. If this had the capability to shoot the nadir without the tripod in view then I would probably have given this a higher score. If you need to usa more lenses you will loose a lot of time in nodal point position setting. Update Unrecognized Zip Code. Even if you were to replace the screw with a winged-screw or “thumb-screw” it still wouldn’t work as it will not fit with the bracket.


Mounting brackets and rails have dual safety features.

When we want to manfrotro the nodal point to the axis of rotation center we first of all need accurate measurements of its position. Rated 4 out of 5 by TJ S.

Not a real big deal but would’ve been nice to have a built in level at this price. The only problem is that it is really heavy. The device is supplied with calibration lines by default. The weight is not what I call heavy for my own hand, but for some people it might be considered heavy. But, the adjustments are done simply by loosening the bolts and sliding the plates by hand.

Even then it’s manfroto enough in my personal opinion. Please check your local sales tax laws.

The photographer would like to place the focal point at the center of rotation of the system with adequate precision, already an error millimeter, when shooting at wide angle and shoot from all sides to manftotto anKing a spherical projection, is not a negligible error.

Very sturdy and durable quality. Put it in a case and your set. Error would be about mm. Simple and effective entrance pupil adjustment.
