Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 package with RD5 Advanced Rotator without lens ring. R1 is a single row panoramic head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses. It features an Arca-Swiss Style compatible clamp at the top to which you can mount the lens ring or other accessories.

The canter-lever design is not intended for user to shoot the nadir (down shot) or zenith (up shot) by simply tilting down or up from original position. Doing so skews the NPP of a lens creating errors in stitching. While there are some using advanced workflows that may offer solution these usually come at the cost of added work in post-production processing of images. Generally speaking the zenith shot can be eliminated if shooting with slight tilt up. With use of optional R1/R10 Nadir Adapter there is also technique to shoot the nadir (down shot).

Difference from Nodal Ninja R10/R20

+ What you are gaining with R1: 

  • Adjustable tilt above or below horizon (R10/R20 has a fixed tilt). The R1 pano head incorporates a unique cantilever tilting option suitable for different fisheye lenses on different sensor formats under different applications. 
  • Built-in spirit level

- What you are missing with R1:

  • Slightly lower weight
  • Reduced cost
