Introduction: 360 Degrees Photos, DIY Vertical Mount / Panoramic Head to Digital Camera
I was see in youtube this Nodal Ninja and how to take best panoramic photos, but when i see the price I decided make my own nodal ninja and this is the result
Step 1: Desing
the materials are:
- Aluminum Profile 1" x 1".
- Metal File.
- 3D Printer (I use The Replicator Dual CTC).
- Screws and Nuts 1/4".
- Hex Key.
- Screw M4X10.
- Tap M4.
Step 2: Printed Parts
I designed all of the parts, the last photo are the camera holder, I only posted the photo of the ensemble but in the files I put the all of parts.
Step 3: Assembly Parts
the aluminium profile you can cut your preference this depends on size of your camera.
in this part maybe you need the dremel or the metal file to scrape the plastic so you can enter the piece.
