Description

The Manfrotto MH057A5 Virtual Reality and Panoramic Head makes it possible for you to take sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis with your camera, either in portrait or landscape position. It also ensures that the nodal point of the camera/lens is in line with the centre of panoramic rotation so that parallax effects don’t cause problems during image stitching.

The MH057A5 is built around (and includes) the 300N panoramic unit, adding a system of sliding horizontal and vertical plates for accurate positioning of the camera nodal point. The plates have engraved index rules to make subsequent repositioning easier. The included quick release elbow bracket lets you use the portrait orientation of the camera, gaining vertical field. The system is suitable for most 35mm SLR still and digital cameras using wide-angle or standard lenses.
