Nodal Ninja Rotator Upgrades. Rotator RD5
Upgrade your existing Nodal Ninja Panorma head with the RD5 Rotator Base
What 'click stops' does the RD5 have? | Why upgrade to an advanced rotator?

One of the new top of the line advanced Rotators. A rotator that combines high precision, ease of use, compactness, light weight and durability - just what panoramic photographers have been waiting for.

The RD5 has 5 different selectable click options suitable for fish-eye, wide angle and standard focal length lenses.

Complete set of 5 detent interval options;
Stops around = 3, 4, 6, 10 or 36
Degrees = 120º, 90º, 60º, 36º and 10º

(need a different number of clicks? remember you can 'skip' alternate clicks to give 2, 5, 18 etc!)

Why use an advanced rotator upgrade instead of the standard rotator? See here for 'what's the difference'
