    Re: Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 and R10 Ring Mount Pano Heads.

    Here are the prototypes of
    * Optional spirit level at convenient to view position.

    The level is clamped to Rotator D4. It extends out of the R1/10 and can be placed to any easy to view position. We will also make similar level for monopod.

    * Optional advanced rail stop to remember NPP setting.



    This is a compact and elegant integrated stop plate. It is clipped to the lens ring plate. The stopping position has to be predetermined and machined in the factory. The mounting of lens rings has been proved to be very repeatable. After collecting and varifying the setting for a particular lens at a particular tilt angle, we will start making the stop plate.

        Nick,
        How accurate is the lens ring clamping to the lens? Is it always at the same point or has no 'anchor' and the mounting of the lens rings would change everytime the lens ring is removed.

          Oh, any words on the weight, or lack of it?

            Peleng lacks suitable area for clamping. It requires different design from other rings. I don't think its market size is worth my effort.

              It seems that all lenses have "anchor" point. Sigma 8mm can be reproducibly mounted with a precision of 0.5mm. This allows predetermined stop plates to be used.

                Re: Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 and R10 Ring Mount Pano Heads.

                By the way a new section in forum for R1/R10 family would be nice Bill ?

                Also is it possible to use Nikon FIsheye 16mm f/2.8 on R1 ? as diameter (63mm) of that lens is same as Nikon 10,5 and pupil entry is at 83.5mm from attach of Nikon D700 when fixed on it !

                Thanks for all

                  economics of designing one for the Peleng may be as you have mentioned...sad sad but thanks for replying... :-\

                      Thanks Nick but confused by your answer. Do you mean you plan a ring for that lens or existing ring for Nikon 10.5 is ok to use with that lens ?

                      Thanks

                        Sorry Nick to bother you with that but may you answer me about that as one of my customer is asking for that ?
                        Also I need explanations about tilt of R10 as I'm confused with it. When you select 10¬? you get a head inclinated 10¬? down but the 5¬? model is inclinated to the up What is logical here ?? I don't find it :'(

                        Thanks for your explanations

                          Nikon 16mm will require different plastic insert from a Nikon 10.5mm. The lens ring plate may be of different length too.

                            For a Nikon 10.5mm on 1.5x sensor, a -10 deg tilt will reduce the nadir size. Zenith can be covered by handheld shot. The zenith is easier to patch. Of course, the user can also choose 0 deg tilt. It is easy to change.

                            For a sigma 8mm user, the tilt has to be reversed. But 10 deg tilt is a bit too much. The nadir will has poorer quality.

                              I think what you ask is about this:
                              When you order a 5 degr. R10 you have three choices to mount the vertical;
                              at -5/0/+5
                              That's all.

                                Re: Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 and R10 Ring Mount Pano Heads.

                                I'm confused as to which model I need.

                                I have a Sigma 8mm fisheye and a Sigma 15mm fisheye.

                                I use 2 bodies: Canon 5DM2 and a Canon 40D.

                                On my 40D + 8mm, I shoot at 0 degrees, 6 around, then 1 zenith ~90 degrees (can be less)

                                On my 5DM2 + 15mm, I shoot at -10 degrees, 6 around, then 1 zenith at~90 degrees (can be less)
                                or on my 5DM2 + 8mm, I shoot at 0 degrees, 3 around, plus 1 zenith if necessary (to eliminate shadowing on the stitch)

                                I didn't see any images on how you'd shoot a zenith (at 90 degrees or anywhere 70-90 degrees)

                                Can someone post some? (the object VR stuff doesn't work until 64bit windows, so I can't see those images either)

                                The ring holds the Sigma 8mm but will it also hold a Sigma 15mm? I'm not sure if it's a different size, looks the same to me, but that's not technical
