More Info

The RD16 II Advanced Rotator for Panoramas from Nodal Ninja has a total of 16 different selectable detent intervals, including 3.75-120°. This rotator also has a 62mm foot nadir footprint (diameter), and is best suited for ultra wide fisheye lenses when capturing full 360 x 180° spherical panoramas.

Combining anodized aluminum parts with a lubricated inner ball bearing design, the RD16 II also provides the very precise, fluid rotation required of professional photographers. You can change click stops on-the-fly, which is ideal in time-sensitive situations, which includes shooting high resolution multi-image mosaics, or shooting the same scene at different focal lengths.

For 360 x 180° Spherical & HDR Panoramas
With precisely machined components, laser engraved markings, and lubricated bearings you can capture full spherical panoramas both quickly and accurately
62mm Diameter/Nadir Footprint
Diameter of 62 mm provides sufficient precision and stability while keeping the nadir footprint small
16x Selectable Detent Intervals
This advanced rotator has 16 different degree stop increments which correspond to a 3.75-120° range of detent intervals. While the detent interval (click-stop) option can also be changed in seconds, some of these specifically require both of the two included plungers, and an included knob locks the rotation into place
Up to 24lb Supported Weight Capacity
This rotator supports 24 lb (11 kg) of weight, and is designed for ideally half of that, at 12 lb (5.5 kg)
Change Detent Interval in Seconds
As quickly as you can pull one of the two plungers out of a detent interval, you can change the number of stops and degrees at which your rotator will stop
Laser Engraved Indexing Marks
High precision lasers were used to engrave the indexing marks on this rotator every 2.5°
Built-In 3/8"-16 Bottom Thread
Attach the rotator to any compatible 3/8"-16 screw or adapter, allowing you to use tripods, stands or other stabilization methods
Designed to mount on lower rail systems of current Nodal Ninjas using anti-twist sockets and M6 female thread with supplied 1/4 hex screw
