Nodal Ninja Ultimate R10 + Advanced Rotator RD5 + Lens Ring (fir)
R10 is a single row panoramic head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses such as the popular Sigma 8mm or Nikon 10.5 mm.
Each R10 head has a set of 3 built-in static tilt options (0 degree and +/- certain degrees): +/- 7.5 and 0 degrees. R10 tilt is fixed. It is possible to disassemble the R10 and change the tilt to negative (i.e. change it from +7.5 degrees to -7.5 degrees) or to zero (i.e. no tilt) without any additional purchase. Disassembling the R10 is easy and straightforward but it is not recommended to do it on a regular basis. If you need to change the tilt often buy the Nodal Ninja R1 instead.
