What is included in the bundle? | Examples of use to produce interior business photos | Quick Reference Guide (GTP users)

This business kit is the latest model Nodal Ninja designed for use by photographers wishing to produce photography for the Business View 'Trusted Photographers' Program and has also proved to be a No.1 choice for any user wishing to quickly produce panoramas using one of the common fish eye lenses. This new R20 model supercedes the successful 'R10' model being lighter and more compact & with redesigned features including the new mini compass.

Any trusted photographer needs trusted equipment - the R20 Business kit is our recommended 360-degree Nodal Ninja panorama tripod head bundle designed to ensure your images for every panorama are produced in a standard, reproducible way to enable the best quality results time after time.

Nodal Ninja R20 ultimate trusted photographers kitOne of the smallest, lightest precision heads on the market. A single row pano head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses.

A high-quality of spherical panorama can be produced by stitching 4 sets of 3 bracketed images taken in ±1EV steps (i.e. -1, 0, +1 EV) using an 8mm 'fisheye' lens. The photographs taken in our example are at 90 degree intervals with the ring mount head tilt set at 7.5 degrees above the horizon - this gives a good 'overlap' of the photos at the 'zenith' (top) while omitting an area at the 'nadir' (bottom) of the photos.

The ring clamp mounts directly onto the lens itself freeing up the camera. Different cameras can be use on the same lens without adjusting any settings.

The kit consists of the Nodal Ninja R20 panorama head '7.5' (with presets for +7.5 degrees above, zero degrees and -7.5 degrees below the horizon), precision ring lens clamp to suit the selected model of fish-eye lens, with RM4 'mini-rotator' (click stops at 90 degree intervals, and small enough to minimise the rotator appearing 'in shot') AND FREE compass accessory - see below.

ALL TRUSTED PHOTOGRAPHER BUNDLES MAY BE PRESET BY HAVING A 'STOP PLATE' FITTED PRIOR TO SHIPPING. HOWEVER, WE DO ASK CUSTOMERS TO DOUBLE CHECK THE UNIT FOR THE CORRECT SETTINGS WHICH CAN BE READ FROM THE SIDE SCALE ON THE FOOT OF THE LENS RING WHEN MOUNTED INTO THE CLAMP ON THE R20:

Sigma 8mm F3.5 Canon V2. Stop Plate 201. Foot Plate LRP40. NPP = 0.925

Sigma 8mm F3.5 Nikon V2. Stop Plate 202. Foot Plate LRP45X2. NPP = 1.825

Canon 8-15mm F4 V2. Stop Plate 203. Foot Plate LRP45X2 NPP. = 2.5

NPP = No Parallax Point (sometimes referred to as 'nodal point')
(The foot plate number can be found on the underside of the lens ring footplate)

Example location photography with photographs 'bracketed' to give 3 exposures at each 90 degree rotation, a total of 12 images, photographed with the panorama head set at 7.5 degrees above the horizon to give a good overlap at the top of the images, while leaving a small area omitted at the bottom of each shot where the head/tripod would appear:

Some users will only require to take photos and supply to their customer as individual images as shot - others may wish to combine
the bracketed shots to produce a HDR image or interactive 'VR' movie, or virtual tour.

As can be seen in the image above, the 'Nadir' (bottom of the images, where the tripod would appear in the photos) is not covered by the area visible to the lens.

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 as we have done at the publishing stage using the 'Pano2VR' software.
