About Manfrotto 300N

The 300N panoramic rotation unit allows the photographer to take sequential constant-angle shots around a single axis, an essential part of achieving accurate and easy-to-stitch panoramic compositions. In principle this new head works like the previous one (code 3414), but in reality we have made three changes:

1) THE SAFETY CABLE FOR SCREW KNOB "F" ...Safety cable to prevent it from being separated from the head and getting lost.

2) THE SECONDARY LOCKING KNOB "W" ...The 300N also comes complete with a secondary locking screw which stops unwanted or accidental rotation of the head when heavy or off-center equipment makes it less balanced or when the head is used for non-horizontal rotation.

3) THE NEW CHOICE OF ANGLE SHOTS... As you know the type of lens used determines the shooting angle and consequently the number of rotations. Comparing to the previous version we delete the 18° angle position (20 pictures) and replaces it with a 5° angle position ( 72 pictures).

The unit weighs 1.1 lbs. It is 2.4" high, and has a maximum load capacity of 31 lbs.

The camera can be mounted directly to the head by using optional item #3054, for 1/4"-20 mount), or on a conventional head which is in turn mounted on the Panoramic Head.
This item has a 3/8"-16 male mounting screw on top and a 3/8"-16 female mount on the bottom.

One reason why the Manfrotto 300N is popular is because of its Stable

Perfect for the purpose

By

from Swiss alps  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use it for panoramic pictures made from assemblage of multiple exposures. It's exactly what I was looking for: stable, accurate, usable with heavy cameras, strong, affordable. Maybe just a little bit on the heavy side, but it feels so sturdy, making me very confident to use it with my pricey cameras.

Questions about this item:

Tony M  I need to use it for taking panoramic shots with my T3i, Manfrotto 190XproB tripod and 327RC2 Grip Action Head?
Scott B  sounds like a great mix to me !!
Shopper  I have a Manfrotto 190XPROB and Grip Action 327RC2 head. Will the 300N QTVR Panoramic Rotation Head suffice my needs for panoramic shots with my T3i DSLR?
G REID H  I think you still need some kind of VR head on top of this rotator. You can use your grip action head to get you level, and the Bogen rotator to take the individual shots, but you need to offset the camera from the center of the tripod and find the nodal point of your lens. This is accomplished with a VR head... Good Luck!
