    But, can you please fix it so I can order what I want? I need it for a major, extremely important project, and would like to order it and have it delivered ASAP. The big time client is waiting and I think the R1 just might be the anwser to my (our) problems. They were very nice to me and I would love to make their wish come true (360? from the top of the beacon in the hotel harbour). So pretty please with sugar on top...

    Need to shot from that beacon, no place for downshot, so musthave as small nadir as possible. Thus, my earlier questions about the nadir size, muy importante.

    If that does not work out, I will shot one more version, just in case, where the monopod will be protruding about two meters from the top of the beacon, parallell to the ground which is about 16 meters below. The monopod will have D300, Sigma 8mm F4 and, you guessed it, R1 on top of it. The rotating of the camera will be managed by rotating the monopod at the other end and not breathing for a while. Thus, my earlier questions about the security and complete safety of the setup.



    D300, Sigma 8mm F4 are quite heavy. If the monopod is horizontal to the ground, you should pay extra attention and test the stability of the setup. Make sure there is enough friction between the Rotator and RD4. You may want to tape the rotator with duct tape.


    I have informed Bill to make the correction. He might have missed my mail.
    If you are in US, give a call to Bill. Contact info is at the website.

    PS it is fixed now.

                    Hmm, the combo is bulky and heavy. Not really a good match for the stuff on top.

                      good news and bad news to me.

                      I can't resist to place the order for r10 last week and have to place another order in a short period again.

                      Seems that this adapter can work with the original NN5 rotator.

                        It is a nice one for this combo, between the poleadapter and the Giottos QM..

                          Hi Nick and Bill

                          Received the R1. Thank you very much. The merchandise looks and feels great. I sold my 360precision to buy this, and I can tell you, I do not regret it. You have all my support in the future. Will continue buying from you and recommend you to everyone I know does 360. Next up for me will probably be new lens ring for another lens I plan to get, Tokina... But Ill get back to you when the time is right.

                          Also, I have found the NPP for Sigma 8mm f/4 for Nikon. Here it is:

                          NPP value @ 0? tilt: 1.80.

                          This is precise. Not 1.81. Not 1.79.

                          1.80.

                          Tested in a very small bathroom, with a lot of objects very near the lens. Stitches perfectly.

                          Best regards,

                          Dalileis

                              Sorry, of course it's +1.80, there is no minus for the NPP value. Misinterpreted visual memory.
