I've been enjoying the photos on this thread. I thought I ought to include one of my own.

Using the values for the DP1 M and DP2 M ...

DP1M = 38
DP2M = 32.5

it appears the distance from center of mount screw hole to the back edge of the ribbed portion of the focus ring does equal the NPP (no-parallax point).  Therefore the back edge of the ribbed area becomes the point of pivot for panoramic imaging.    See attached image ...

I do not have the DP3M but suspect it may reflect the 37mm distance.

I measured 'nodal point' while rotating camera with stopped down diaphragm and using a slit laser. For a stable laser across the diaphragm, I found these measurements, based from center of tripod mount:

DP1M = 38mm

DP2M = 32mm

DP3M = 36mm

I then CNC machined and powder-coated a mounting bracket using Front Panel Express. I can post of photo later. It works well with all 3 bodies.

Would you mind explaining how you used the slit laser? is there a tutorial or video anywhere on this?

Also please post photos of the mounting bracket! I'll buy one if you are selling!

I just do the usual empirical NPP determination of lining up a near and far vertical (usually my window frame and the highrise one block away). I got 32mm for the DP2M using this method. There are NPP tables for common lenses, but often you have to do your own determinations.

I recently used the bracket hiking around Lake Louise and the Burgess Shale; it was very convenient.

Ooh, there's a place I've wanted to see for a long time. Please share any Merrill shots that you can.

This bracket needs a 3/4" shim, such as the cylinder under the acorn nut [which is where the camera goes], but can be effective.  It is seven dollars at McMaster-Carr, under modular furniture.  The holes are 5/16" and close enough to 38 mm on center that the play of quarter inch screws allow it to work for the DP1 and 3, if not the 2.

absolutely no financial interest here, but this is my solution for a my MP-2M and 3M

http://reallyrightstuff.com/Items.aspx?code=NodalSlides&key=cat

I bought the 192 since the you can also rotate the clamp and use it as a bracket for any purpose.

Note the MPL's work too, and are a bit less, but you move the camera in one and the slide in the other. Also a level in the II

sorry - there's 3 RRS '192 packages' on the page you link to - which one did you buy/recommend?

next public release of rawdigger (www.rawdigger.com) will support Merrill's raw files, so you can see raw histogramm for the current generations of Sigma cameras and see how your metering + exposure compensation corresponds w/ raw channels saturation.


any estimation of when this is coming?  I'm kind of exhausted wrestling with Sigma DPP.

whoops - I see it is now supported!  Any experience if its an improvement on DPP anyone?

I've had the same question before so I looked a bit in possible workflows. This one here seems to work for me:

1. Take out Sigma DP3M.
2. Focus on eye under good lightning conditions.
3. Press shutter.
4. Done.
