Title: Accessory for Induro PHQ3 head to allow rotation around nodal point
Post by: Ellen Schmidtee on December 28, 2012, 09:32:12 AM
I plan to buy an Induro PHQ3 tripod head, and noted - w/o surprise - that in order to have a camera + lens rotate around the lens' nodal point, a third party accessory would be required.

What would that accessory be? Would a macro rail do the trick?

Thanks!

A macro rail would work, or a nodal slide from RRS:

Personally, I use the MPR-CL II.
