 Nodal Ninja Model: RS-2-NOR Ring Mount Spherical Pano Head with optional RD5 Rotator & Lens Ring
Nodal Ninja Ring Mount Spherical Pano Head RS2: What lenses are compatible? | What 'click-stops' does it have?
Sample images and panorama easy to create using the Nodal Ninja RS-2 ring mount head.

Nodal Ninja RS-2-NOR
Nodal Ninja single-row lens ring mount pano heads (Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1/ R10 mdoels) have become a great success since their release. They 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 degrees vertically or horizontally.

The difference between Smaller model RS-1 based on the NN3 is this model RS-2 is based on the larger NN4 and incorporates 15 degree upper rotator positive stops. The RS-2 is designed more for larger cameras. The only difference between RS-2 and NN4 starter package is the upper rotator incorporats an arca-swiss style clamp rather than an upper rail. The Nodal Ninja RS2 is a multi-row ring mount spherical pano head which allows zenith and nadir shots at the NPP (No-Parallax-Point) and makes stitching of multi-row panoramas an easy job.

Ring mount spherical head with sigma 8mm canon mount
Example: Ring mount spherical head with RD5 rotator and Sigma 8mm & Sigma 15mm Canon ring Mount fitted. (shown with camera and lens in place - camera and lens not included).

However, for full frame fisheye users, 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.

RS-1-NOR Nadir and zenith
Example: Ring mount spehrical head allows full 360º rotation around the upper mount for multiple rows and allows zenith and nadir to be photographed while maintaining the correct NPP. (shown with camera and lens in place - camera and lens not included).

This new Nodal Ninja RS2 model is a multi-row ring mount spherical pano head, allowing 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 the successful Nodal Ninja NN4 model. It incorporates shorter lower rail and its upper rotator incorporates an Arca-Swiss style clamp with positive locks every 15 degrees.

The optional NEW RD5 advanced rotator base model has click stops at 120º, 90º, 60º, 36º and 10º - giving 3, 4, 6, 10 or 36 'click stops' per revolution detent options and pan lock. (need a different number of clicks? remember you can 'skip' alternate clicks to give 2, 5, 18 etc!)

Includes: Lower Rail, Vertial Rail, Upper Rotator with Arca Style Clamp & Case.

RD5 rotator and lens ring listed separately.
