Spherical panoramas made easy

The new VR-System Slant was designed especially for fisheye lenses with a diagonal image angle of 180°.
The camera is to be mounted on the panorama system horizontally at an angle of 60° and it can also be tilted vertically at up to 15°. With this slanted camera position, complete spherical panoramas with impressive pictorial effect can be achieved with only three or four overlapping exposures. It is especially simple to make these photographs with the aid of a monopod.
The VR-System Slant is meant for all photographers who wish to produce high-grade spherical panoramas quickly and efficiently for internet applications, such as, for example, virtual tours.
