Or is this a way to lure you to buying the leveling plate or double-bubble? However, it worked fabulously. I can’t comment on that. You can use the N for object panoramas. Price too high for an object so sloppy. The lens is not set at the correct entrance pupil.

Then I pointed the camera down, as if I’m shooting the nadir, and adjusted the camera’s center focusing point on the pivotal screw of the VR head. This head and the work I have done with it have been my main source of income since the day I got it. I used it on a t5i with battery grip and the camera would move since there is nothing other than one mounting screw holding the camera in position.

Manfrotto should check their production line, somebody is not doing a good job there. Yes Tools Required For Assembly: It was simple to adjust for the entrance pupil on the SPH. That’s just my personal preference. The description of the device itself is straight direct: In the lower bar the scale is covered bu the head structure. Less work in having to remove shadows and you’ll retain the location’s authenticity.


The device is supplied with calibration lines by default.

Manfrotto SPH review

Of course excluding the big-guns like the super-telephotos. Read up on other patching techniques here. Weight, size and cost is another issue. The Manfrotto SPH is a panoramic head.

A nadir that is covered by a “mirror-ball” cap is not my cup-of-tea. Also in this case the measurement is random, no point of reference if not a sign “center” that serves no purpose since no one knows how far the lens is from this point.

Make sure the VR head 1 is properly leveled. Mobile Version – juza. If you want to shoot high quality and high res. JuzaPhoto uses technical cookies and third-part cookies to provide the service and to make possible login, choice of background color and other manfrotro click here for more info.

Manfrotto 303 SPH : Specifications and Opinions

Rated 4 out of manfroto by Arturo from A manftotto quality product, but heavy I using this head to do x panoramas. Strong material used that can accommodate the heaviest of camera bodies. I suggest to the manufacturer to consider adding a sort of thin plate with a hollow screw in its center to work as an adapter.


It never stops to amaze the audience. The images are to manfrottto illustrate the length achievable on the upper arm of the SPH. It’s a precise piece of equipment with lots of obvious engineering. Rated 3 out of 5 by Robert from Not what I expected for the price. From the small rough movies we could make in the late 90s to the huge super detailed full screen panoramas of today.

NOTE on images below: I had to take a gear piece from an older tripod with me and make it as a converter between my current tripod and the base of the device.

I simply used a carpenter’s square and Manfrotto’s double-bubble to initially adjust the nodal point. It did not take mznfrotto to adjust the nodal point or other fine tuning.

The vertical mark was missing and the friction of the vertical movement was blocked, so I had to deal with some mechanical issues before to use the heads. The mounting brackets have marked out points to aid in nodal calibration and remembering set-up points for various cameras. The fantastic results you can get from it quickly puts your mind on other things. With more than members, there is space for everyone, from the beginner to the professional.

It is a more of a side project we have kept alive through our interest and all manfgotto projects we have been asked to do. It took four months for mine to arrive.
