Nodal Ninja RS-2 Without Rotator (F9712X)
Introducing the new Nodal Ninja RS-2 Spherical Panoramic Head. It's design is based on the fenomenal Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1/R10 combined with parts Nodal Ninja 4.
R1/R10 heads have become the obvious choice for a ultra compact and light weight setup for users of circular or cropped circular fisheye lens which has an angle of view close to or above 180 deg vertically or horizontally. However, for some combinations of cameras and lenses, their application is restricted to scenes with easy to patch zenith (top) and nadir (down) shots, due to their single row nature. The patching also requires higher skills in stitching and post processing.
Nodal Ninja RS2 brings a solution with its multi-row capability. It features a ring mount with spherical pano head rotator (RING AND ROTATOR SOLD SEPARATELY). It allows zenith and nadir shots at the NPP (No-Parallax-Point) and makes stitching of multi-row pano an easy job. Lens ring mounts have NPP settings independent of the camera bodies making the sharing and verification of NPP setting a much easier task.
The NN RS-2 shares many parts and specifications of Nodal Ninja 4. It incorporates shorter lower rail that fits Nodal Ninja 4 standard rotator or Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotators such as RD16. Will not fit Rotator Mini or RD8-II. Its upper rotator with NN4 15 degree possitive lock stops incorporates an Arca-Swiss style clamp.
