Few weeks ago I was thrilled when I seen 360 panorama and I started to search about panoramas and how to make one. I found out that i need panorama head which I made (it was not so good but it did it's work).
So i made myself panorama head but I had no where to put it and I decided to make tripod.
I didn't won't to buy one because they are expensive and because I love to work in my workshop.
The building process was very easy and amusing and it took me about 10 hours to build.
It's low cost project and can look great once it's done, like mine :)
So let's say something about tripods. Basically they are made out of three legs which can be extended to adjust the height of camera and to take still photos. They also come in various sizes and shapes, mine is about 50 cm tall without the additional legs and about 80 cm with the additional legs.
I apologize if I misspelled something, my english is not so good.
