Whether you're looking to shoot photos or panoramas, you will need some basic equipment:   

1. A tripod

Nodalview uses an advanced exposure correction technique called Automatic Exposure Bracketing (AEB), for which complete stability of the camera is essential.

2. A nodal arm

The nodal arm is a must-have to use the Nodalview solution. It will be used to hold your smartphone in place, both for photos and panoramas!

3. A smartphone case

We recommend the use of a dedicated Nodalview phone case to get the best quality. Unscrew the lens from the clip it came with and attach it directly to the case. Our cases guarantee a perfect alignment of the Nodalview lens with that of your smartphone. If we do not offer a case designed for your smartphone model, don't worry - you can attach the lens to your phone using the clip. Setting it up might be a bit more tedious but the results will nevertheless be high quality.
