The Panoramic Head 200 from German brand Rollei is an aluminium panoramic tripod mount with 360 degree rotation. It provides secure attachment for even the very heaviest digital SLR cameras up to a weight of 3 kg, enabling the user to capture impressive panoramas with a minimum of fuss.
Stunning panoramic images
The user of the Panoramic Head 200 can shoot a series of digital images which can later be ‘stitched’ together to produce the final, single, seamless panorama. Images can be taken at angular increments (or ‘rest steps’), fixed at a range of intervals between 15 and 180 degrees, to ensure that the camera is released in exactly the right position.
Easy-to use panoramic tripod head
The mount, which extends to a height of 16 cm, keeps the point of view of the camera stationary by placing it in the axis of rotation, thereby eliminating problematic parallax error. All the mount’s sliders and rotating guides have easy-to-read scales to adjust for this difference between the mount itself and the focal point of the camera, allowing the user to easily change the position of the camera even after the nodal point has been fixed.
Lightweight and portable
Weighing just 1385 grams, the Panoramic Head 200 is a practical solution whatever the location, and comes packed in a sturdy but stylish Rollei-branded carrying case with foam padding for added transportability.
