Precision machined parts and lubricated bearings provide smooth rotation and click stops, as well as decreased wear over time. The RD16 II has 16 selectable increments of rotation, and you can also mount your camera in either horizontal or vertical orientation. With one-knob adjustable resistance for horizontal panning, and the process of producing a panoramic photo becomes even easier.

Please note: The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4 ED VR lens is not compatible with the NN4 series panoramic heads.

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 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 7.7lb Maximum Weight Capacity
This tripod head and rotator combination supports 7.7 lb (3.5 kg) of weight
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°
