Hello all,

Today a pano-head topic was mentioned on yahoo group for FZ10 users, an I started to think about exact dimensions for such a device. The pano-head should allow you to rotate camera around focal point of the lens, for best panorama photo results. Description of some basic theory can be found here: http://www.stereoscopy.com/jasper/panorama.html

And so came the question - where the CCD sensor is inside the body, or where the "rear focal node" is? And if (as I guess) CCD and/or focal point moves when lens is zooming/focusing, where it is for 6mm focal lenght with lens set to infinity?

One who has seen camera inside and knows how the lens really operate can answer this question, so the Panasonic Bob seems right person to ask

Or I'll end up with some trial and error process to find it out, good thing is it's not a film camera :twisted:

TIA,
LeslawT
