Camera Centering

Step 2 – Camera Centering

Now that you have your rotator mounted on your tripod and your camera mounted on your rotator, the next step is to properly center your camera on the rotator for shooting panoramic images.

Every camera has a specific place on the rotator that will properly center that camera and it’s lens for shooting panoramas. The centered position is called the nodal point. The nodal point (centered position) is different for each lens that you use on your camera. The process to determine the centered position for each camera and lens is call finding the nodal point.

If your camera is on our list of cameras that have already been setup on our rotator then, we already have the settings for where your camera mounts on the rotator and you won’t need to go through the Nodal Point setup process. We can simply e-mail you the settings to center your camera on the rotator.

Click on the Camera List button below and Look for your camera in the list. (If you are using a Digital SLR look for your camera and lens listed together as a combination.)

If you found your camera in the list then you do not need to go through the nodal point setup process. Click the “Found My Camera” link below to continue onto the final step of Software Setup and Training.

I Found My Camera

If you did not find your camera in the list you will need to go through the process of finding the nodal point. Click the “I Did Not Find My Camera” link below to continue on to Step 3 – Finding the Nodal Point.
