The R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Mount Package from Nodal Ninja is a lens clamp panoramic head for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses. This package includes everything you'll need except an adaptor ring for your lens to capture sweeping panoramas. The R1 pano head has a unique cantilever tilting option for a very small footprint, ensuring minimal intrusion into the frame - always a concern when shooting 360° panoramas with a fisheye lens.
This package also comes with an adjustable ring clamp that attaches the lens to the R1, rather than the camera, so that camera bodies can be swapped with ease, rather than the lens.
Note: Separate purchase of an adapter for your specific lens is required to fit the lens into the adjustable ring clamp. The R1 cannot be used without it. Please see the accessories section of this listing for the adapter that matches your lens.
- Small Footprint for Unobstructed Images
- Options are available to capture the zenith (directly above) and nadir (directly below) making nadir and zenith patching easier and making sharp long exposure images possible
- 8 Precise Tilting Options
- With this package you'll have eight precise tilting options between -15 and +12.5°. The included RD4 Advanced Rotator brings four detent stops, including 2, 3, 4 and 6 as well as a pan lock. These features provide the ability to roll the camera and lens in any position you need, including the most popular 0, 60 and 90° angles
- Ring Clamp Mounts to Lens
- The ring clamp mounts directly onto the lens itself freeing up the camera, and allowing for different cameras to be used on the same lens without adjusting any settings. An optional rail stop is integrated into the Lens Ring Plate. An adapter for your lens is required.
- There is a built-in spirit bubble level, as well as an optional spirit level that allows rotation to the side and back for better viewing (sold separately)
- Compact Design Good for Monopods & Poles
- Compact and lightweight, the R1 is ideal for pole photography or use with a compatible Arca-Swiss quick release
