Carlsbad, CA, USA September 17th, 2008 – Sunex, Inc. a leading manufacturer of high quality digital imaging lenses announces the introduction of the new full spherical panoramic tripod head designed to easily create full 360° immersive images.
The new Sunex Panoramic Rotator CMT-R04 is specifically designed for the Sunex 185o SuperfisheyeTM lens and features 4 stop positions (0°/120°/180°/240°). It provides more versatility than previous Sunex tripod heads and is ideal for 2, 3 or 4 shots 360° virtual tours. Another key improvement is the knurled thumbscrew to allow fast and easy lens mounting in the field, without additional tools. Also notable is a longer body that minimizes image area occupied by the tripod head at the bottom of circular fisheye images. As featured in all Sunex rotator heads, the lens nodal point is precisely positioned over the rotating axis as this is essential to minimize parallax error and achieve efficient image stitching.
“The new CMT-R04 provides significant improvements, versatility and ease of use to photographers involved in 360 virtual tour creation” said Francois Pelletier, Director, Sales and Marketing at Sunex. “Sunex is the only fisheye lens manufacturer providing lenses and fully compatible rotator heads, making panoramic and full immersive photography more accessible to all photographers”
The new Sunex Panoramic Rotator is available at a suggested retail price of $299. Sunex SuperfisheyeTM products can be ordered online at www.superfisheye.com
