Nodal Ninja 4 NN4 Starter Package
Leave your options open for future growth. Thanks to a larger size of Nodal Ninja 4 it supports bigger and larger DSLRs including battery grips and heavier lenses with a longer focal length. The upper rotating arm has a 15 degree incremental locking mechanism.
Typical use: Panoramic photography, virtual tours, heavier and bigger cameras and lenses
The Nodal Ninja 4 is one of the newer pano heads from Nodal Ninja featuring greater precision and build quality. The NN4 features an upper rotator with precise 15 degree positive stops, a design borrowed from the advanced Ultimate M1 series. Currently the NN4 does not allow for anything other than 15 degree incremental locks which are rarely needed in typical workflows.
The upper rotator however can be configured with an initial offset of +/- 5, 7.5, or 10 degree from the horizon, making it perfect for single row spherical panoramas with various fisheye lenses. This pano head is capable of supporting DSLR's (with or without battery grips) and lenses up to 3.5kg. NN4 is designed to accommodate a wide range of lenses from ultra wide to 100mm focal lengths (35mm equivalent focal length assuming 25% overlap). Ideal for anything from 360x180 full HDR spherical panoramas to super high resolution mutli-row gigapixel imagery.
Will your camera and lens fit? Nodal Ninja 4 supports these maximum lengths:
A - maximum 109 mm: distance from the lower flat surface of camera to lens axis (does not depend on lens used)
B - maximum 129 mm: distance from the beginning of lens to camera display
If used with the T-III eccentric adapter the maximum B size will increase by 22 mm. In that case you probably won't be able to turn the camera directly up as it will collide with the lower vertical rail of the panoramic head.
If your measured numbers exceed the maximums shown here you will most likely need Nodal Ninja 6 or Nodal Ninja M.
