Nodal Point NN5 with Pentax K200D and Pentax SMC 10-17 Fisheye

I spent some time today trying to find the best possible setting for creating panoramas with the NN5L and my K200.

After reading about many ways of how to find this “point”, I went with the one outlined here.

Here’s how I set up my camera with a “basket” I found in the kitchen:


You can see my current settings here:


4.9 on the horizontal scale and…


9.7 on the vertical one.

I’m still trying to fine-tune the settings and if you happen to have a similar setup I’d love to hear from you! I found the settings for the K10D somewhere on the web but they don’t work for me and that’s why I put this up.

It might help one of you to get started. If I refine the settings or decide to try it with the 17-70 I’ll of course post that on here as well.

I've always been interested in all kinds of art because I felt the need to express myself in many different ways. I paint, draw, create 3D models, motion graphics & designs of all sorts, play guitar, love photography and whatever else is in between... I was born in Hungary and lived in Hungary, Germany, Australia and the UK for a number of years. I speak German, English and a little Hungarian (I'm working on improving that one again!).
