Nodal Ninja RS-1-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.

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 RS1 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-1 shares many parts and specifications of the successful Nodal Ninja 3II MKII model. It incorporates shorter lower rail and its upper rotator incorporates an Arca-Swiss style clamp.

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.

Recommended load limit: 1.25kg (2.75 lbs) Compatible with all Fanotec Lens Ring Mounts, Rotator Mini, Rotators RD4 / RD5(shown) and Quick Mount Mini adapter.

Example: Detail of ring mount attached to upper Arca-Style clamp.

Example thumbnail images show 5 sets of 3 'bracketed' images where each set of 3 bracketed exposure images were photographed 90º apart, then a final set of 3 images with the lens pointing directly upwards to capture the 'zenith' (ceiling in this case) - easy to achieve by simply rotating the lens ring mount to point upwards.

As can be seen in the image above, the 'Nadir' (bottom of the images, where the tripod appears in the photos) has been left in shot exactly as it appears in the final stitched images. This is so you can see the area affected by the tripod/head 'footprint'.

Some clients require images to be produced and supplied exactly as this, but if you are publishing your own images or interactive tours
you may wish to retouch this area, or cover with a logo or 'mirrorball' effect, which is easy and straightforward to acheive at the publishing stage using the 'Pano2VR' software. [page top]

The finished panorama shown below has been output as 'Flash' and 'HTML5' format - and the page is coded to present the correct version as and when required,
ensuring that visitors can see the movie on desktop computers, laptops, tablets, iphones and ipads.
