    Nodal Ninja Ultimate R10

    A single row pano head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses such as the popular Sigma 8mm and Nikkor 10.5mm with more to follow. It is the same as the R1 with the exception of the tilting feature. Each R10 head has a set of 3 built in static tilt options (0 degree and +/- certain degrees). Currently 4 sub-models with +/- 2.5, +/- 5, +/- 7.5 or +/- 10 degrees are available. When purchasing the R10 you have the option to select which tilt you desire. One set of the tilt options is suitable for a particular fisheye lens on a particular sensor format. The ring clamp mounts directly onto the lens itself freeing up the camera. Different cameras can be use on the same lens without adjusting any settings.
    The R10 comes with your choice of one ring clamp. Initially, only ring clamps for sigma 8mm (Canon and Nikon Mount) and Nikon 10.5mm are available.

      Lens Ring Clamp for fisheye lens

      Lens ring clamps for fisheye lens have become popular due to their compactness and ease of use. However improper use of lens ring clamp may cause stress and hence damage to a lens. After all, these lenses are not designed to be used in this manner! Fanotec lens ring clamps are built with special attention to the safety of lens.


      Features and Highlights

      * Plastic insert is placed between the outer metal ring and the lens. It is contoured to fit the lens and hence increase area of contact.
      * Large clamping area to reduce stress on the lens barrel, reducing the risk of damaging the lens.
      * Mounted close to the camera to reduce stress on the lens due to weight of camera body
      * Rolling the camera/lens in any position including the popular 0, 60 and 90 degree positions
      * Index marks for every 90 degrees in the front and every 30 degrees at the back for easy alignment of roll of lens.
      * permanently mounted to lens, making reproducible mounting possible, and much quicker to setup.
      * Compact and light weight
      * Arca Swiss Compatible quick release design, can be mounted directly to other Arca Swiss compatible system without using R1 or R10.
      * great for use on a monopod or high pole
      * Easy to install
      * Optional advanced rail stop to remember NPP setting
      * 30 day money back guarantee
      * 2 year warranty

                R1/R10 comes with one ring. You can choose your ring during purchase.
                We sell rings standalone for those having more than one fisheye lens. we can offer R1/R10 LESS ring in the future.

                  yes, I can confirm it is compatible for Canon mount 8mm F4. Not sure about Nikon mount.

                    Nick,

                    Do you offer trade-ins - for example an NN3 with accessories?

                      We have a website trade-in offer (doesn't apply for NN3 to R1 or R10) - for details see: http://www.nodalninja.com/trade_in.html
                      Other resellers might or might not offer programs.

                        Hi!

                        Great new products !

                        Could you give us some advice on desired tilt-up for the Ultimate R10 ?

                        Have you a table given the recommended tilt-up for a particular fisheye lens on a particular sensor format ?

                          Is there any chance I can use this in the near future with my Olympus E-3 and Zuiko 8mm FishEye?

                            yes, it is on the list. Since Zuiko 8mm is a full frame fisheye, a zenith shot is needed. But R1/10 can't take zenith shot at NPP. R1/10 is recommended for your outdoor use, or indoor with flat ceiling only.

                              I'll check back when the lens mount will be available.
