Nodal Ninja RD5 Advanced Panoramic Rotator (Factory Irregular)
One of the newest CNC machined advanced rotators by Nodal Ninja.
Typical use: Rotator for Nodal Ninja R1/R10 Ultimate Heads
5 different degree stop increments changeable on-the-fly using outer blue knobs:
(that's where the number 5 in the name comes from):
- 10º (36 stops per 360 degrees)
- 36º (10 stops per 360 degrees)
- 60º (6 stops per 360 degrees)
- 90º (4 stops per 360 degrees)
- 120º (3 stops per 360 degrees)
Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotators combine high precision, ease of use, compactness, light weight and durability. The inner ball bearing construction also provides for very fluid rotation. You can now change click stops on-the-fly. Ideal in time sensitive situations in which shooting must be completed quickly, such as in shooting high resolution multi-image mosaics or shooting the same scene at different focal lengths. The RD5 has 5 different selectable click options suitable for wide angle and standard focal length shooting (approx. 50mm).
