    NEW NODAL NINJA PRODUCTS

    Well I just wanted to tell everyone some very exciting news.
    We received the prototypes from Nick (some last minutes touches were needed). Myself along with the 4 visiting resellers all agree these products will certainly pave the way to fulfilling the growing demands of the panoramic photographer.

    I can't show you images or tell you more just yet as we will do the official unveiling later today at the conference. We hope to have the first images up by tonight or tomorrow. Once we post the images the thread will be open to questions anyone might have.

    This thread will mark the start of the public announcement - so you might want to bookmark it and watch for updates.

    More soon.....

    Cheers
    Bill

    yes, you are right.
    but there is a better way using the nadir adapter.

    Nodal Ninja and Nodal Ninja Ultimate will always co-exist. They have different appeals to customers. Nodal Ninja is our cost effective solution. Nodal Ninja Ultimate is our best quality most advanced solution. Cost is not my concern in the Ultimate design.

    Please -- don't forget an upgraded T-adapter that works!!!!

    So is this set up here just the Ultimate M1-S and a lens ring? or is it more stuff? Would this set up also work with the RD4 rotator that comes with the r1? If so is it easy enough to remove the rotator and swap back and forth as needed? Very interested in this set up.

    Thanks

    No new word about new products - I would hope soon but then even this answer is a bit open ended. If you opted to receive emails you'll get notification once released. Also we will have a trade-in program on our website for selected items.

    Just a thought...

    Mine is as tight as a drum, and I can't open the adapter with it locked (which is handy when I pick up the whole rig and move it).

    Another question, what is the speed screw for? It doesn't seem to control the friction when swinging the adapter. Thanks.
