Nodal Ninja Lens Ring is designed for use with the Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1/R10, Ultimate M and RS Pano Heads which have become popular due to their compactness and ease of use. Lens rings are built with special attention to the safety of the lens. Can be also used with Nodal Ninja Ultimate R10 for Google Business Views (Google Trusted Photographers). Purchase when you are getting a panorama head without a lens ring or if you need a different lens ring.
This lens ring is designed for Sigma 8mm or Sigma 15mm lens for Canon cameras. Important: Always use a proper lens ring for your lens. Improper use of lens ring may cause stress and damage to the lens.
Introducing the New Lens Ring "V2"
Nodal Ninja customers have been asking for modifications of existing lens rings to allow full access of controls on the lens. We've made modifications to the plastic insert and outer metal ring to allow for reading the focus distance in both landscape and portrait orientations. And in some cases, switch(es) on the lens can also be accessed through these windows. As with V1 the new V2 is compatible with Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1, R10, RS1/2, and Nodal Ninja Ultimate M series model heads.
Features and Highlights
Modifications to the plastic insert and outer metal ring to allow for reading the focus distance in both landscape and portrait orientations.
Plastic insert is placed between the outer metal ring and the lens. It is contoured to fit the lens and hence increase area of contact.
Large clamping area to reduce stress on the lens barrel, reducing the risk of damaging the lens.
Mounted close to the camera to reduce stress on the lens due to gravity of camera body
Rolling the camera/lens in any position including the popular 0, 60 and 90 degree positions
Index marks for every 90 degrees in the front and every 30 degrees at the back for easy alignment of roll of lens.
Permanently mounted to lens, making reproducible mounting possible, and much quicker to set up.
