The Roundabout-NP Standard II adapter is perfectly suitable to create 360° cylindrical panoramas as well as 360° x 180° spherical panoramas.

By means of the Roundabout-NP adapter the nodal point of the camera can be fixed exactly and adjusted. Then the camera can be turned vertical and horizontal around the nodal point, so that in case of the creation of panoramas no parallax error are created which afterwards are only hardly balanceable.

The Roundabout-NP-Standard adapter is completely made of aluminum, by this very light and highly-stable.

Both movable axes are guided and dispose of lasered millimeter scales, so that a high repeating accuracy in case of adjustment of axes is given.

Furthermore the carriage of the camera has two thumbscrews for a fast adjustment of the carriage and a selectable quick change adapter(Manfrotto MA323, Sirui MP-20/Sirui TY-60) and a 1/4“ quick release plate for your camera.

The vertical swivel arm disposes of a degree scale and 7,5°clickstops which is saved by a big clamping. All screw connections are strengthened by a steel thread inserts resp. slot nuts. Also included in the adapter is a small noble bubble level.


Connecting Plate for "external" rotators:

He has no rotator. He disposes of a ground-facing base plate with 3/8“ and 1/4“ connecting thread and thus can be used flexibly on an "external" rotator like the Manfrotto 300 N or the Novoflex-panorama plate,tripod ball head with panorama function ...Also included is the shown Tripod Bush Adapter.
