Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 Giga Panorama Head with with RD8-II Advanced Rotator Base.
Here is the long awaited Nodal Ninja M2 Giga, the ideal manual pano head for gigapixel high-resolution imaging using telephoto and super telephoto lenses.
This unique patented and patent pending design allows precise positive stops of 7.5/5/4/3.75/3/2.5/2/1.5 degree intervals on the upper rotator, which can be engaged and changed on the fly by simply switching 1 or 2 levers.

Features and Specifications - M2 Giga
When paired with the Advanced Rotator Base D8II (precise click stops at 30, 15, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2), The M2 Giga supports up to 700mm equivalent focal length with camera in landscape orientation, or 550mm equivalent in portrait orientation. Due to the precision of the rotators, each photo can have precise coordinates which help stitchers to quickly align the photos just like photos captured by the high end robotic head. There will be no more stitching issues for a featureless area such as sky or blank wall.

M2 Giga Panorama Head

Being a manual panorama head, Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 Giga is much lighter than a robotic pano head for the same load capacity. There is no battery and charger to carry and no worry of the battery running out during a shooting. Due to the intuitive design, M2 Giga can excel a robotic head in terms of speed of capture when a number of photos are less than 600. The rotator indexing can be turned off for free motion, allowing photographers to capture moving elements such as in a sports panorama, or to capture second shots for an area prone to stitching error by change the overlapping region.

Other important features:
Nodal Ninja Ultimate Modular System is based on Arca Swiss compatible system, the industry standard for high-end photographic support. The M2 is a design with many years of refinement, integrating years of feature wishes from customers. It fills the gap of Nodal Ninja product line for photographers making high-resolution panos or mosaics with super telephoto lenses. Furthermore, it can act as a gimbal arm for smooth rotation of heavy telephoto lenses at its center of gravity.

Features and Highlights:
Modular design means an easy upgrade from the previous model and to future models.
Easily 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 (regular M2).
Upper rotator with precise positive stops of 7.5/5/4/3.75/3/2.5/2/1.5 intervals in Giga model (Patented and patent pending design).
Upper rotator can be engaged and changed on the fly by simply switching 1 or 2 levers in Giga model.
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.
With RD8-II (precise click stops at 30, 15, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2) to support up to 700mm equivalent focal length with camera in landscape orientation, or 550mm equivalent in portrait orientation.
Precision CNC machined from aircraft aluminum and hard anodized, meaning high precision, accuracy, durability and long lifetime.
