Pencil marks? Nodal point tests? Extra plates? I used the 303 for a

extra money mount your camera and go! get precision all around
vital zenith and nadir shots that I could never achieve accurately
303 thus post production time cut vastly.
Makes me wonder about this "knock-off" design (cheaper, but still
pricey due to the exchange rate, like all things from the UK) that
recently popped up: http://www.quickclick360.com/
Looks like someone else with SolidWorks (and access to a 3-axis mill)
shoots panoramas. ;-) Personally, I prefer smaller, lighter, cheaper
and faster - particularly since I don't print out my panos (they are
HDR for 3D environments) and I carry my gear on my back when in the
wilderness. I've made some specialized camera gear for others (with
Pro/E Wildfire and a nice 5-axis mill), but for myself I've made two
"precise" heads for about $15 each out of parts from Home Depot that
will last a very long time. All batch stitch-able with minimal nadir
footprint (must be for HDR), just not adjustable like the 303.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
