Poles

Telescopic Carbon Fiber Aerial Poles for taking your your photography to new heights

Nodal Ninja (Fanotec) poles are 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
  • Lightweight
  • 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.

 

Safety notes

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 recommended to be mounted directly onto a rigid tripod when extended at full length. 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 Use

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.

 

Load and durability

"Fanotec poles have been tested extensively by the manufacturer and experts in Pole Panoramic Photography before releasing to market. A recommended load of 2kg is determined based on ease of handling and stability of the system in gentle winds or in low light situations. Larger loading can be used at reduced extension and/ or with the help of guy wire system. A robotic head with camera and lens weighing 4.2kg has been tested on Pole 3 with guy wire system attached recently. The result has been very satisfactory.

Lab tests show even our smallest carbon fiber tube is capable of withstanding extreme vertical weight loads exceeding 100kg. As a quality assurance measure, each pole is subjected to 50kg pulling tension for over 3 hours to test the integrity of joints and locking mechanism before leaving the factory. The maximum loading is more related to the stability of support base than to the ultimate strength of the pole. With a rigid support such as custom made car mount, the pole can handle far more than 5kg loads. A load exceeding 5kg should be tested properly before using the system in the crowd. Fanotec bears no responsibility for any injury or damage that may cause as a result of the failure of the pole and support system."
