Hello All,

I am new to your forums and I am considering purchasing a Nodal Ninja so any advice you might have please let me know. All of my cameras either have a Kirk or Really Right Stuff L-bracket attached. Has anybody used their quick release clamps to modify the Nodal Ninjas so the base plates or L-brackets don't need to be removed from the camera's?

Thanks,

Yes I use the Manfrotto one, and never take it off the camera. With my set up I have made a special thin mount to be able to use the NN3 with in its limits.
Had I got the NN5 I would have found things easier and no need to modify anything.
I cant answer for your mounts cameras and lenses But I suspect the same will be true.

Terry.

hi Sean,

we have an inexpensive Arca Swiss Compatible clamp for your purpose.

Get NN5L for best compatibility as the clamp and adapter need more room.
