Love shooting Panos. Since converting to digital 2.5 yrs ago have been using a home made head & learning what my OMDs can do. In my film days shot a Widelux & Hasselblad X-Pan. Digital allows me to do things like night sky & much higher res panos I couldn't do w/ film. But there's a down side & here's my exploration of it. These high speed shutters & hi pixel density sensors mean shutter induced vibration is a real issue. Full disclosure, I'm a geek - degree in physics - testing is a way of life - And I worked my way through college as a machinist (Many years ago!) so I assembled a small pano head because the commercial heads are much bigger than needed for mirrorless. Here's my head: _4010003 - 2015-04-01 at 16-58-40 by tradesmith45, on Flickr _4010001 - 2015-04-01 at 16-57-15 by tradesmith45, on Flickr _4010004 - 2015-04-01 at 16-59-59 by tradesmith45, on Flickr All pano heads provide leverage for what ever shutter/mirror induced vibration the camera being used generates. All modern cameras with high speed shutters have this problem to some degree. So what follows is an examination of what helps reduce this problem. Never noticed these problems in my film days when the fastest shutter speed was 1/1000" or less and the best film resolved maybe the equivalent of 8 Mp.
