Telescopic Carbon Fiber Aerial Poles for taking your your photography to new heights
Nodal Ninja (Fanotec) polesare durable, stackable, portable and great for taking aerial virtual tours, photos above crowds of people and for reaching new points of view. Very useful for events, travel and professional photography.
Suitable cameras: Anything from ultra compact to small DSLRs with built-in or interchangeable lenses to up to approximately 55 focal length.
Nodal Ninja Carbon Fiber Pole System Features and Highlights:
Thick cross-layered carbon fiber tubes for maximum rigidity and durability
Compact in size
Anti-rotation system maintains rigid azimuth / yaw locking / accuracy
Supports a large range of DSLRs (the only real limit is the maximum weight)
Standard 3/8" stud at the top and 3/8" female receiver at bottom for working with other accessories
Poles are modular in design
You can start up with a small module and gradually build up the height by stacking it to a larger module. Each module can be used independently (additional parts needed), creating an array of short poles with different stiffness for different applications, such as horizontal pole for cliff panoramas.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE
Nodal Ninja Carbon Fiber Poles conduct electricity very well. Please take extreme caution when raising and using these poles around electrical wires.
Nodal Ninja poles are NOT designed to be mounted directly onto a rigid tripod. The pole base can be damaged by the added torque generated with the use of camera and lens at full extension. Please see Tripod Adapters for mounting on tripods.
Horizontal and 45º degree tilt use is possible but only at your own risk. We recommend not extending the pole fully, or using some kind of support, such as a string to hold the weight of the camera, or some other kind of support from the bottom. If you stress the pole too much while using it in the horizontal position it can damage the carbon fiber structure. If you want to experiment with horizontal use of poles we recommend starting with the lower extension part for Series 1 and 2 which is due to its width the most durable.
