      Bill is out playing with his pole! In public? (Sorry, I could not resist any longer)

        Not to worry - they are only prototypes that even "I" will have to return to Nick soon

        Thanks Bill! You made my day!

        Enjoy your play stuff, but don't let me know!

        That's rude

          Okay, you guys need to tell the story when Matthias was capturing a 360 pano with his pole in northern Arizona with Andrew before the conference. Pretty funny : )

          I cannot wait to capture 360 panos with a rotator at the base and my camera stable at a higher elevation. Boy... its difficult to choose words that do not imply things : )

            Any information about where I can order the Nadir attachment?

            Thanks, Terry

                    My order is in I hope it was quick enough to get the one of the "Very" limited ones.
                    If it can save me a little work then it is well worth the price.

                      Hi Terry - unfortunately we sold out before your order came in. This would have been noted in the store at time you placed the order and also printed on your invoice with new expected ship date.
                      Nick is actually making these pre-production nadir adapters individually until he is able to ramp up full production flow. With so many people waiting on the side lines it took only one day to sell out of the hand full we received. Because of limited supply this forum is the only place we made announcement.
                      On a more positive note at least you're near the top of the queue. So if an order is canceled or the next lot comes in early you'll be one the first to go out. With the orders still coming in I can see the next lot selling out quickly as well but you're secure.
                      Thank you for your patience.
                      Bill

                        The images of the new swivel adapter make it appear that one would lose precious room at the end of the lower arm. Is the adapter mounted backwards? Many NN3 users already have the vertical rail almost at the end.

                          Hmm, that seems an easy problem to spot out, isn't it?
                          No, there is no problem to use the full length of lower rail. However, the adapter will swing the center of gravity much further than lower rail will allow, thus increasing the strain on the lower rail. I will only recommend using it for fisheye lens on NN3.

                            Could you explain the difference in the CNC vs the later made Cast aluminum parts?

                            Is there any cosmetic or structural differences? I just want to make sure it would not be better to wait on the mass produced parts. I always have to have the latest and greatest toys, but I know sometimes it may be better to wait.

                            My last toy a CZ P-07 9mm gun was purchased right after it was released and it had several problems that were worked out in later runs.

                            Just being curious, Terry

                              CNC = Computer Numerical Control. A computer and servo motors are hooked up to a mill or lathe. A machinist writes a program to make a part. The machine is very accurate at positioning the tool repeatedly at the same point. You still have to know how to machine a part.

                              Cast aluminum is a way of constructing parts using a hollow cavity and melted aluminum. Engine blocks are about the best example of a cast part. Casting, when done right, yields very good parts. I think all of the NN3 and NN5 rails are cast (Nick, correct me if I am wrong here).

                              The cost of CNC is much higher than casting for production parts. Prototypes are almost always cnc'd. The quality is not necessarily lower with casting. Many small gun parts are high precision castings. Car rims are a lot of times cast. Casting is a good way to manufacture quality parts at the lowest costs possible.

                              Unless you now what to look for, a non machinist will probably not be able to tell the difference between the CNC made swivel and a casted swivel. No worries.

                                CNC machined version can be anodized and has better and more durable finishing.
                                Die cast version use an alloy which is not good for anodizing. so they are painted. Finishing is less durable.
                                As a matter of fact, we continue to tweak the design based on feedback and suggestions from early users. It is not uncommon that a product gets minor enhancements in later batches.
