Guy Stuff – DIY Camera L Bracket & Nodal Point Focus Rail Use

Continuing the Guy Stuff series, here’s a peek in to my pro photography world! This video will cover making your own L bracket for use on a tripod. I cover it’s complete construction and alternate setups and uses. I also show you how to find the No Parallax Point, also called Nodal Point, of a lens specifically for shooting multi shot stitched panoramic photographs. I also show you the benefits and working of a focus rail, level devices and give lots of tips along the way!



Two places you can easily purchase the metal are:

The drill & tap set size is 1/4″x20
The bolt if you need it is 1/4″x20x whatever length you need for your setup
