View Full Version : Difference between NN3 and NN3 MKII

NN3 has been upgraded and improved with a newer rotator and detent rings.

Improvements include:
* No inner lock screw, tension is easily adjusted by simply tighten the upper knob.
* Inner ball bearing replaces detent pin. This allows for a more positive feel and increased wear.
* Rubberized metal knurled knobs. This not only allows for a better gripping but also creates a better feel and enhanced look.

We will be selling the lower rotator assembly separately for current owners of NN3 (first edition) with an estimated website price of $40. This will replace the upper and rotator knobs. The newer MKII detent rings are not interchangable. You will note by the image of the lower rail of the MKII the design as changed slightly as well and with the rings themselves. You will however be able to use your original rings as you are not changing the lower rail.
Thanks

I've used the NN3 for about 18 months now, shooting hundreds of panoramas. I've just changed a detent pin for the first time because I could barely feel the clicks-stops. I'd love to upgrade to the MKII or the NN5 just because I like to unpack and use new gadgets but I don't actually need to, my NN3 serves it's purpose just fine.

Hi,

Good idea to have created a forum. I like the way NN is going and always searching how to improve its nice products. This MKII seems really interesting, because the rotator on the first generation NN3 (which I own) wasn't always quick to adjust for the system to clip nicely.

Bonne id?©e d'avoir cr?©?© un forum. J'aime la fa?ßon dont NN ?©volue et cherche constamment ?† am?©liorer ses produits de qualit?©. Le MKII semble vraiment int?©ressant, parce que le syst?®me de rotation sur le NN3 premi?®re g?©n?©ration (que je poss?®de) n'?©tait pas toujours rapide ?† ajuster pour un bon fonctionnement de la roue crant?©e.

Hey Henri,
Welcome to the forum.
We will have an inexpensive upgrade option soon for current users of NN3. Stay tuned - we'll mention it here.
Cheers
