Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 Modular System is the designers dream come true. It is based on Arca-Swiss Style quick mount system, the industry standard for high end photography. The M2 is a design with many years of refinement, integrating years of feature wishes from customers. Created for photographers making high resolution panoramas or mosaics with super telephoto lenses up to 700mm. Furthermore, it can act as a gimbal arm for smooth rotation of heavy telephoto lenses at its center of gravity.

Features and Highlights of Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 

  • Precision CNC machined from aircraft T6061 aluminum and anodized, meaning high precision, accuracy, durability and long lifetime
  • Modular design means easy upgrade from previous model and to future models
  • Support long telephoto lens up to 3kg (6.6 lb) in weight
  • Full bearing loaded rotators for smooth and steady rotation
  • Upper rotator with adjustable friction to serve as a gimbal arm
  • Upper rotator with laser marked index ring with fine 2.5° intervals.
  • Upper rotator upgradeable (optional) with precise positive stops up to 1.5° finest intervals
  • Upper and lower rotators with indicators for starting and ending positions, ideal for making mosaics with a large number of images. Photographers can first compose the mosaic, then set the starting and ending positions horizontally and vertically. The indicators will make sure no images are missed and no excessive images are taken.

  • Precision CNC machined components
  • Lubricated bearings for smooth rotation

  • Ideal for making HDR panos and/or mosaics
