4 years ago, when there was a lack of affordable pano heads in the market, I took up the challenge and mission to develop my Nodal Ninja SPH-1, a metal spherical pano head targeted for US$99.95. At that time, I knew little about pano head design and industrial manufacturing but I never stopped my dream to design and manufacture state- of-art pano heads that satisfy the most demanding users. My company was given a name Fanotec that stands for "Fan Of Technology". During the past 4 years, I strive to acquire the knowledge and capability to fulfill my dream. I listen to countless suggestions and feedback from customers and forum members. As a result, Nodal Ninja SPH-1 was improved to the current Nodal Ninja 3II and Nodal Ninja 5 was released to support the larger cameras.

Now I am proud to announce development of my top of line products which can live up with the name Fanotec. They are the next generation Nodal Ninjas, the Nodal Ninja Ultimate's. The Ultimate's are all based on the industry's renowned Arca Swiss compatible system for maximum versatility. They are all precision CNC machined from quality aluminum and anodized.

There will be at least 3 models:

*One for batch stitching,

*One for maximum portability and simplicity by using a lens ring design,

*One for versatility and functionality that go beyond a pano head.

Lens ring model consists of a universal platform with preset tilt angles and lens ring made for each lens. The lens ring and the platform are joined by a Arca Swiss style quick release system. The tilt angles are -15, -10, -7.5, -2.5, 0, +5, +7.5, +10, and +12.5 degrees. They can be interchanged easily. Other variable tilt angles and off-set +/-90 deg (rotation off-set from NPP) are also supported. The rotator base is the new advanced rotator (Rotator D4) with 4 detent intervals. The intervals are 2,3,4,6 stops. There is a panning lock to stop rotator from unwanted rotation.
All popular fisheye lens will be supported. The model for Sigma 8mm and Nikon 10.5mm are scheduled to release in September/ October 2008. Other models will follow shortly.

The other 2 Ultimate models will be available later 2008 or early 2009. Their designs are being refined and functions added for maximum versatility.


We're looking for names on our new upcoming products and seeking the input from our customers. If you have a good idea for a product name please let us know and if your name is selected you will win that item. The 3 models will all share the parent name, Nodal Ninja Ultimate. So they will be called "Nodal Ninja Ultimate XXXX".


Conditions:
* All ideas on products names must be shared in this thread or poll.
* The product name cannot already be under consideration.
* The author of select product name releases all interest to that name.
* Compensation will be in exchange for a retail version of the product being named which may or may not include added accessories.
* The manufacturer will select the name they feel best suited for the product.
* Winners will be notified my email.
* The poll is for others to vote an what they feel is the best name.
* Deadline for helping us to name product is on 30 Sept. 08 for the lens ring model and 31 Oct. 08 for other 2 models.

Names already under consideration:
Nodal Ninja Ultimate = NNUL
NNUL "Precision"
NNUL "Professional"
NNUL "Ring"
NNUL "Mobile"
NNUL "Elite"
For these and other names please see our poll.

Thank you and good luck

Hello Nick and Bill,

First I want to congratulate you with the fine range of new product.
About the naming I suggest you keep it as simple as possible, your products don't need fancy names:

NNUL Batch (can it be more accurate, I don't think so, this is what the first model is designed for).
NNUL Fast (for speed the ring model is best)
NNUL Versatile (and that covers exactly the flag of the last model)

All the best,

Wim

They are the next generation Nodal Ninjas, the Nodal Ninja Ultimate's.


The next or the last? Ultimate sounds too final to me. It's Windows Vista Ultimate, but as far as I concerned XP was the Ultimate Windows and I am migrating (http://panospace.wordpress.com/2008/08/09/upgrade/) :biggrin:.

I am sure a few years down the road you will come out with something even better.

Also I agree with other remarks on this thread that NNUL is a killer. I'd respectfully advise to stay away from acronyms as they can only be understood by insiders.

My suggestion: call it the Nodal Ninja Elements series.




*One for batch stitching,


Quartz, Diamond, or Crystal - Very regular, repeatable structures. Quartz is used to generate clock frequency. Diamond is the more expensive, so I'd leave it for a v2 or v3 (MkII)



*One for maximum portability and simplicity by using a lens ring design,


Air, Oxygen, or Helium - so light they float around us, and so simple and beautiful. Again, you may want to leave yourself room for progression.



*One for versatility and functionality that go beyond a pano head.

Acqua - versatile element that is found almost everywhere and in different forms (e.g. ice, steam, salt water, sweet water).

You want to leave yourself room for progression. Look at Apple and the names it gives to its operating systems. it has enough kittens for more than a decade.

An alternative would be to go with the chemical elements / formula themselves, e.g.


Nodal Ninja Elements C
Nodal Ninja Elements O2
Nodal Ninja Elements H20


however that might be a bit too geeky.

Thanks again for the kind sponsorship of our Google Summer of Code effort. Today is the last day of coding for the students. I started to post previews (http://panospace.wordpress.com/2008/08/17/sneak-preview/) of their achievements. I look forward for your new designs.

I think the name would work best if it's as simple and non-code-like as possible. I don't understand "NNUL"-- it communicates "NN" and "NUL" to me, not "Ultimate"-- why not "NNU"? Some great suggestions so far, but I think that marketing-wise, fewer syllables are better than more, non-code-like better than code-like.

(Also, apostrophes are the correct plural modifier ONLY for nouns which are abbreviations. So, "NNUL's" is correct as the plural for "NNUL," but "Nodal Ninjas" is the plural of "Nodal Ninja," and "Nodal Ninja Ultimates" is the plural of "Nodal Ninja Ultimate." I've corrected it in the Subject line of this reply.)

something that has come to my mind in the past.

NN UL "Quantum" for batch stitching head. Quantum means fixed values.
"NN UL" without any other name for versatile head in general.
NN UL "Ring" or "Magic" for the lens ring model.

I was thinking of places I would like to use the new models. I would like to take some pano shots from Mt Shasta, a lighthouse on Lake Superior, Diamond Head, HI.

so how about:

Shasta
Superior
Diamond Head

For the batch: NNUL "COOK" or "The COOK" (Serving up a fresh batch of panos!)

For the lens ring: NNUL "LOOP" or "The LOOP"

For the versatile: NNUL "VERT" (Climb Up Beyond the PanoSphere)

My suggestions,

NN-UL "Fast" - fast, batchable stitching
NN-UL "Light" - travelling light and ease to use
NN-UL "Wide" - wide range of use

also I like some alliteration

NN-UL "Fast" - fast, batchable stitching
NN-UL "Free" - hassle-free setup
NN-UL "Flex" - flexible in use

or the olymipic motto

NN-UL "Fast(er)" - fast, batchable stitching
NN-UL "High(er)" - ring for pole panorama
NN-UL "Strong(er)" - more than standard pano-heads

greetings from Cologne, Germany

Hi!
Would like to know more about new products of fanotec, also know more about those rings, would fit great to me!

For the names I propose not to make it complex, people use to get confused. .....

So I propose the simple scale:
NN-UL A
NN-UL B
NN-UL C

And then series of "01" for the versions (NN-UL A01)

Or the other option would be:

NN-UL P (for perfection or precision)
NN-UL S (for small or slim)
NN-UL X (for versality)

Or the last would be (depending of its size):

NN-UL S (small)
NN-UL M (medium)
NN-UL L (large)
NN-UL XL (for other options of the large or plus accesories)
NN-UL XXL (idem plus)

And the last option would be a simple Number scale:

NN-UL 001
NN-UL 002
NN-UL 003

congratulations for the new line!

Batch-Master

Ring-Master

Universal-Master

With later up dates to add number as now. I, II,III

(The ring should also have the lens engraved and angle set.)
(The Batch-Master should have the combination of camera lens marked)

I think a series of this sort should have as much commonality of name as possable.

I am not sure I would like to see "NUL" on a product as it means Nothing and gives a negative connotation.
I would rather see NN Ultimate in full....


I can not find the names I have given with hyphens, as being used in the context of Panoramic hardware.

A further few thought ....
at least one person has mentioned that Ultimate sounds too final.

My thinking would be that this name is reserved for the top range of nodal ninjas... and that we are just looking for a set of names to go along with a new set of heads to fit in that high quality range.

That is why I think that all the new range should have a common word in them.

Further sets or upgraded sets, could have appropriate names or suffix numbers.

I do not think the year such as 2008 should ever be used, as it fixes them in time and would suggest at later date that they are old models.
any name should indicate with in the name, what series it belongs to and its purpose or type.

Purpose/type.. Ring.... Series.. master = Ring-Master .... etc. Batch-Master ... Universal-Master


They should also incorporate Nodal Ninja, as has been used in all previous heads, so that they can easily be found in web searches.
They should be findable if one searches for Nodal Ninja... Ultimate.... ring...batch...universal or any combination... especially when used in combination with panoramas.

As NN sales are very much web based they must be easy to find using already popular or known words in searches.

I do not think words such as professional or precision give much indication as to what they are for or their purpose.

This will be the last mechanical line of pano heads I will ever develop. All the later models will be just tweaks based on the initial models. The design is modular. Different components can be assembled together to form a pano head or other photographic equipment. For example the coming advanced rotators are members of the new product line. But there can be new advanced rotators in the future.
That said, I am open to naming suggestions. Nodal Ninja and Fanotec were names given by forum friends. :-) They are excellent.

I was assuming that one day you might introduce an electronic automatic or computer controlled range of heads.

I see Fanotec as the manufacturing/ design name ... which could also develop unrelated products under that banner.
I also see Nodal Ninja as the Trade name covering all panorama items.
With that in mind the top quality manual range of heads with interchangeable parts needs a generic or linking name, which it seems to me you are asking for in this thread.

if I use the rails and quick release from the Ultimate and just use electronic rotators in stead of mechanical ones, I can call it NN Ultimate Auto or Robot, right? :-)

I want to show that it is a clearly different product line than the current NNs.

The Ultimate can be replaced by Professional, Master etc. what do you think?

I am coming to think that Ultimate is turning out to be redundant as part of the actual name.

It could well form part of a description in publicity... such as..... introducing the latest products in our Ultimate range of super quality Panorama equipment .

Then use the chosen range name with the item descriptor..
Ring-master ..... Batch- Master .....Universal- master...
Professional-Ring.... works well enough ... but Professional-Batch or professional-Universal don't seem to work so well as series names.

Ultimate-Ring... Ultimate-Batch... and Ultimate-Universal ...Do work quite well and could be added to the choices.

Codes could be NN-RM... NN-BM... NN-UM ... or NN-UR... NN-UB...NN-UU ....These all avoid the NUL Problem.

sure - and Honda uses it for a vehicle that stirs quite a lot of attention. Namespaces are inevitably crowded and we must live with neighbors. Neighborhood relationships are an important thing to consider when choosing a name. Who is already using the name and for what? How closely related is the concept you are trying to brand with the concepts already in the namespace? Will this cause confusion? tainting/influence from one brand to the other? Other cross influences? Positive or negative? If you are not comfortable with the neighborhood, don't go there. Similarly, if your new neighbors won't like you, they will let you know (sometimes the harsh way, with a trade mark lawsuit and ensuing complications).



This will be the last mechanical line of pano heads I will ever develop.


I hope not. I wish you a long and prosperous career in the business. Of course I also look forward for that gravity-defying fully automated and remote controlled Nadir Ninja :wink:

Hello Nick

The more I think about it the less I like the use of the word 'Ultimate'. To me, including that word indicates that this line will be the last in the development of the Nodal Ninja product range - and having witnessed the product's evolution so far and the items already in the pipeline I very much doubt this will be the case!

Also, in my view you should not use acronyms, other than the already accepted 'NN', on your marketing blurb, except perhaps as order codes on the e-commerce pages, and the names need to be short and snappy and easily remembered, perhaps something as simple as -

Nodal Ninja Pro Batch
Nodal Ninja Pro Ring
Nodal Ninja Pro Plus

These could be abbreviated to NN Pro Batch, NN Pro Ring, NN Pro Plus, perhaps with order codes NNPB, NNPR, NNPP.

Or even simpler, just leave out the 'Pro' and name them -

Nodal Ninja Batch
Nodal Ninja Ring
Nodal Ninja Plus

Just my two penn'orth.

Andrew

Every one knows what a ring pano bracket is and what it is used for.
It would be a mistake not to have ring in the title of this one.

Like wise one knows what a universal bracket is for, so this one should include universal with what ever other word.

The only one that some users may not know about, is the one used for batch work using predetermined templates. since these are usually batch work Batch should be the included descriptor, though it could be argued that Template-Master would be as easily understood as say Batch-Master or the like...

I saw another user had my idea partially- well I had it first :biggrin: , until I found another stated it first :blushing:

Silver
Gold
Platinum

Then could add

Silver Plus
Gold Plus
Platinum Plus

and further

Silver Pro
Gold Pro
Platinum Pro


And the other line of thinking, not sure if anone stated before use the common word "Elite" as a Ninja is an elite warrior

so NNE Batch, NNE Portable/Simple, and NNE Versatile/Functional

or just NNElite, NNElite Simple, NNElite Ultimate

EDIT- I just looked back- you had Elite as the last of your list of considerations, Oh well...

NN Batch Master or NN Batch Master Pro Series (v1)
NN Simply Portable or Ring Master or NN Ring Master Portable Series (v1)
NN Ultimate Master or Elite Master or NN Ultimate Master Elite Series (v1)

Hi Scott, Sorry I've been slack in updating the poll. With so many entries it's difficult and time consuming to keep current. It's best you submit your thoughts here along with any ideas you might have. Nick reads almost all the threads so as he narrows his choices he could either simply make a selection or post a poll with finalists.
