I am confused by the terms "horizontal" and "off-axial" adjustment.

It seems like they should be "horizontal" and "vertical".

And these depend on camera orientation. The distance between camera base and lens axis is "horizontal" only if the camera is in portrait orientation. In landscape, that same distance is "vertical".

Pictures should make this clear.

Perhaps it would be even more clear to refer to these offsets as "basal" and "lateral", or some such.

Is there a standard nomenclature for these things? Where is it defined?

Rik,

I agree with you. Initially I had x, y and z but that would probably be just as arbitrary. I have not had the time to take pictures of the setup to show what I mean. The descriptions I had in mind are based on a portrait setup.

I am not sure if there are standard definition for it. I was not able to find it. Any help or suggestions would be helpfull.
