Nodal Ninja Ultimate R20 Static 2.5/7.5 degrees Tilt Head with Rotator Mini V2 (Selectable)
Nodal Ninja Ultimate R20 Static Tilt Head is a successor of the fenomenal Nodal Ninja Ultimate R10, only smaller and lighter, with all key features preserved. R20 is a single row panoramic head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses.
Comes with the new Rotator Mini V2 which is designed for horizontal rotation of the R20 on a tripod. Rotation can be locked using the new blue knob which allows horizontal or pole use.
Key benefits of using R20 compared to R1 or R10:
- Integrated level
