Can't believe it, how many of you have a peleng..? Apearently enough for quite a few to bug me about making a travel bracket for the peleng. The first few have printed, shown here is a sample being tested on a Pentax, next will be the Nikon peleng ring. Anyone with a Nikon Peleng in SoCal, shoot me a email if you can let me measure your lens for fit.

Samyang 8mm prototype brakcet nr 2 - this one is probably the lightest panorama bracket ever made for a Samyang 8mm or Rokinor 8mm lens

TIm starting to love 3D printers. those things are amazing, this bracket is ABS with honeycomb pattern inside, I was not able to break the red ring backwards when mounted in the blue base, strong stuff. the red sleeve have a custom shape inside which grip the recessed focusing scale and also lightly grip the focusing ring, so the focus will be locked when the sleeve is attached. this is a perfect solution for use on a monopod.

Welll, having played with this one, there is one issue, the bracket need to be taller so that the footprint of the base will be as small as possible, however I rally like how compact this particular unit is, the blue base fit inside the red ring and everything fit in a pocket. The ring is 80mm diameter or about 3.5inches, this is probably close to being the worlds lightest and most compact panorama bracket.

  • Instead of a large rotator I am using a Bogen extension which rotates smoothly and have no practical footprint in the picture, I removed the head from the tripod and mount the Bogen extension directly to the center screw of the tripod, the result is a very small footprint, which I find mostly can easily be retouched with the cloning tool in Photoshop.
    Manfrotto product # 259B - Bogen code (USA only): 3007X
    Cost is app $20 at places like Samy's in LA and B&H Photo.
