How does this compare to be RRS pano kits? Will it work well with RRS L-plates and lens plates?
Asked by: Khurram
The Fanotec Nodal Ninja M2 Ultimte Panoramic Head with RD8-II rotator is a great multi-row panoramic head! From our testing, the arca-swiss clamps on Nodal Ninja products has never had any issue with RRS, Kirk, or other arca-swiss products.

question

I am thinking of getting a Nodal Ninja panoramic head hit for a Nikon D800E and a Nikon 70-200 VRII. Is this the kit to get?
Asked by: Robert
I feel the Nodal Ninja Ultimate M1-L With RD16 II Rotator Panoramic Head B&H # NOM1LRD16II MFR # F8102, would be a better choice.It can support more weight than the other one. And the D800E with the 70-200 lens is pretty heavy.

What's the difference between this and the M2 Giga? Is it just weight capacity?

Hi Khurram, The M2 Giga uses our patented Giga Plate allowing uses to achive precise positive stops of 7.5/5/4/3.75/3/2.5/2/1.5 intervals on the upper rotator or vertical axis. Thx Bill

Does this have to be attached directly to the tripod, or can it be installed on a RRS-BH-55 ball head? I used to have a similar setup with RRS that attached the levelling base to the ball head, and than the vertical/horizontal rails would be attached using the levelling base. This made it easier to switch between pano and regular photography? Does the RD8 II serve thr same function as the RRS levelling base did, and can it be attached to the RRS ball head (ball head is arca-Swiss type)?
Asked by: Khurram
The Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 Panoramic Head With RD8-II Rotator does not come with a leveling base. It is recommended to use that with a leveling base only. A ball head will make it hard to level it.
