Set up Nodal Lamda Head

Graham Futerfas
 

Hi all,

I know I’ve seen an article, somewhere long ago, about how to properly set up a Lamda Head to be nodal. I would love to have this information at hand for a shoot I’m doing with a 3-axis Lamda, so I can hand it off to my AC and let them figure it out.

I think it involved setting up a couple of c-stands in a line, and if you panned and didn’t reveal the c-stand behind, then you were nodal… but maybe that’s a crude way to do it?

Is there a good technique that some of you have for setting up the Lamda head to be Nodal?

Thanks,
-Graham
