I think is need for a pole base instead of a dedicated rotator, say if you make a pole base like a small but thick tripod in such way to provide as little flex as possible, then design a way to put/mount an rotator under (between the legs) the mechanic stress will be supported by the pole base and the already great rotators you have will provide only the stop position, i.e. the stress will be not on rotator but on the base.
I will integrate a rotator to the pole base. The rotator will be optimized for the pole and have environmental seal.
I can relate to the design process; there are only so many ways to reinvent the wheel! The new design does allow more flexibility.
All Arca Swiss compatible systems are very similar. They are based on the same standard. However, our system is the only one that is dedicated for panographers. You will see more in the coming months. You will see every important feature that a panographer has ever dreamt of be implemented in NN Ultimate.
Is the QR clamp on top of RD 16 ( or 8 etc. ) the anticipated solution to quickly swapping the R10 from monopod to tripod mounted RD8?
We have a Quick Mount Adapter for R1/10 and our poles. This adapter also works for RD8/16.
The new products are a big hit! People had a chance to play with the products hands on enjoy the flexibility and ability to build and customize a system to meet their needs. The poles brought tremendous attention and these new items will also fill needs of those with interest in pole photographer. Excuse the informal unveiling shots - once we return we will take better product shots to better display these new items.
I really want to give a special thanks to Vincen, Andrew, Dennis, Rob and Mauro for their assistance in explaining these new products and also helping others to setup Nodal Ninja's and how to use them - thanks guys!
NN5 is not a member of NN Ultimate. Making an adapter is no problem if I still get this requests after the Ultimate is available. I don't see a huge benefit to use a lens ring on NN5. Overall bulk is the same.
NN3 is more problematic as we have a few batches using different sized parts. Compatibility may be an issue.
So where are all the great high res photos? I have seen the first 34 or so on Flickr and am not impressed with the pictures. As someone else said, were there not any photographers there? Do we have to wait for July when the stuff goes on sale?
