HaPaLa (2)

For want of a better way to refer to my Handheld Panorama Laser-pointers I've called this HaPaLa. But I should really call it HaPaLa 2.


It comprises 2 lasers mounted at angles in a cork backed box which bolts to the tripod hole. The camera is a Canon 350D and the lens a Sigma 8mm f3.5 fisheye. Wrapped around the lens is the Y shaped positioning string used to keep the nodal point at the front of the lens in a fixed position - the ring at the bottom being held over a target object on the ground.


I use it for making handheld equirectangular panoramas. This was it's predecessor.
