question

I have a Vanguard Alta Pro 263 with a Canon 5d Mark lll, Do you think that this Nodal fit on it?
Asked by: Yves G.
You take the head off the Vanguard Alta Pro 263 tripod and the Nodal Ninja RD16 II has a 3/8th female thread so it will attach to it. But the top has a M6 female thread and that is designed for a Nodal Ninja head like the Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head. We only have that with the RD16ll in a kit.Nodal Ninja NN4 Tripod Head with RD16 II Rotator for Panoramas B&H # NON4RD162 MFR # F4503

The top centre hole is tapped M6. How deep is the tap? I want to use my own screws & clamps on top.
Asked by: Dennis
The whole is about 1cm deep, and can confirm, it is about 7 full rotations of a screw until it bottoms out.

will it work with modak ninja 3 Mk3? Will it fit on Manfrotto 055 Xpro tripod directly?
Asked by: Yogesh
Yes. It is 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. It has the standard 3/8"-16 mounting thread for tripods, which the 055XPRO also uses.

question

I have a Manfrotto MT294A3 tripod and was wondering if this head was univeral & would work on it. I did not see that type of info under the description.Thanks in advance for your response.wlm
Asked by: Anonymous
The bottom of the pan head is 3/8 which is standard for most tripods. But the top is not standard.There are others that are standard. Manfrotto makes one, http://bhpho.to/1mb07mwThe top is 3/8 so you can attach a head to that. If you want to attach the camera direct there is an adapter plate, http://bhpho.to/1fenQSp

How do you attach an RRS BH-55 (3/8-16 female) to the top of the RD16 II?
Asked by: Robert N.
Good morning, I followed the suggestions in an article called, "MATING REALLY RIGHT STUFF AND NODAL NINJA PANORAMIC GEAR" by John Witsell. The article contains photos and details re: John's setup. IMO, easier to read his details versus stumbling though my instructions. I hope the link helps
