Re: G1 nodal point

digitalkamera.de has a chart of nodal points; however, the G1 is not listed. Once one of us determines the G1 nodal points, they can be submited. http://www.digitalkamera.de/Info/Workshop/panorama/NodalPoint3-en.asp

digitalkamera.de's guide to finding your digicam's nodal point(s) is here: http://www.digitalkamera.de/Info/Workshop/panorama/NodalPoint2-en.htm

panoguide.com's guides to finding and testing found nodal points:

http://www.panoguide.com/technique/lamppost_test.html

What bugs me about finding nodal points for the G1's zoom lens is that there's no numerical indicator of zoom length while shooting, so we have to nodal for either of the 2 known zoom values of extreme wide or extreme tele.

To generate proper panorama, it's best to rotate around the nodal
point so that to points at different depths keep aligned during
rotation.

Has anybody measured the distance of the focal point for the G1 at
different focal lenghts ?

thank you
