Hello people,

I¬„m new here and just like to know to which tripods the NN3 MKII can be attached.
Those "normal" (not professional) ones can be used?

Thanks!

Hi there!

Nodal Ninja's can be mounted on every tripod with 1/4" or 3/8" threads.
Those which are not professional usually have 1/4" thread.

Cheers,
Mauro

Hello Mauro and Nick,

Thanks for the answers!

Just to know: I¬„ve seen some tripods... here in Brazil we don¬„t have too many choices.
What does the rotation job? Isn¬„t the NN3? So, if i place the NN3 in a "normal" tripod, wouldn¬„t it work great?
I¬„ve read about perfectly centered screw of the tripod, is that really needed? Or can just be centered and "dot" (not PERFECTLY).
If the tripod is going to make the rotation, I really didn¬„t understand how it works.
Could you please help me?

Many Thanks!!!!

Any reasonable tripod will work very well... The rotation is a function of the NN3 not the tripod.
The sturdier the tripod the better, to prevent flexing and camera shake, when you fire the camera.
The tripod certainly does not need to be "special" in any way.

Thanks Terry,

That¬„s what i thought about it!

Things here in Brazil cost too high!
Here we don¬„t have any Nodal Ninja Resseler, and for tripods, the things don¬„t go better.
The almost only choice are Manfrotto¬„s and other cheap (amateur) ones.
The 303SPH of Manfrotto, costs here about U$1,300.00, compared to about U$550.00 elsewhere.
Tripods don¬„t go cheaper :001_smile:

There are some amateur tripods that let you put an extra weight on the bottom of the center collumn. Is that a good solution for the lightest ones?
Any other thing i should concern about?

Many thanks!!

I expect you actually have more choices than you think.
A good tripod just about lasts forever... it would be safe to buy second hand if you look over it first.
Tourists going home with excess luggage, might be prepared to sell you theirs...even if you paid their home price for it, it would likely be a lot cheaper than in Brazil.
