This is first generation RD16. Part in a series of Fanotec's top of the line CNC machined advanced rotators. These rotators combines high precision, ease of use, compactness, light weight and durability. The inner ball bearing construction also provides for very fluid rotation. Changing click stops on-the-fly is 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.


Features you'll find in this new class of rotators.

  • Made from imported premium quality aluminum alloy.
  • Precision CNC machined components
  • Lubricated bearings for smooth rotation
  • Laser engraved marking
  • Detent interval option can be changed on the fly.
  • More than 10 kg (22lbs) loading supported.
  • Detent interval can be changed in seconds on the fly
  • Knob for locking rotation
  • Retainer wire so you don't lose the knobs
  • Ideal for making HDR panos and/or mosaics
  • Great in windy locations.
  • Small nadir footprint diameter of 62mm provides greater precision and stability.
  • The unique placement of knobs means that they will never appear in the spherical panos.
  • Fine 2.5 degree rotation markings for making high resolution mosaics.
  • Compact and light weight - only 453 grams with rail
