Hello here from a very happy customer - first a NN2 SPH and then a NN3 (mk I) - and soon a NN5 that I am going to order without waiting for the result of this giveaway. When my NN2 was stolen with all my camera gear, it was one of the first things I ordered back (and Bill was incredibly nice).
I¬¥m new in the field of panoramic photography.
I have seen a lot of websites about panorama heads but couldn¬¥t find the right one for me.
The problem which I have is that I bought a heavy old 1Ds, because I wanted a fullframe-camera.
Now I have found Nodal Ninja products / website and the Nodal Ninja 5 head . This head should be perfect for my needs.
It would be great if I could win one, because I spent a lot of money for my other camera equipment and just relocated from Europe to the US, what cost me a lot of money too. But if not - I will save for it - for sure!
Thanks to the Nodal Ninja Team for this chance!!!
PS: sorry for my English, but I hope it will be better every day in my "new" country.
Received my NN3 last week and have been so happy with it, especially after a minor irregularity with the first version I received (which was promptly replaced by Rosauro - thanks once again for the excellent customer service!! Was so relieved I didn't have to rent the 303 again.).
Anyway, am looking forward to stitching everything all together, and to future experiments.
Hello everyone. Since I know little or nothing of panoramic photography I was just browsing the net when i found your site. From what I've seen the NN3 MKII would be great in helping me discover more about the subject, even with a point and shoot camera (as I've seen in http://moonshine.homedns.org:2655/pa...mera-360-pano/).
I've purchased the Nodal Ninja last year and have used it quite a bit. I mounted a quick release clamp on it so I can attach my camera quickly, and I also put a quick-release plate on the bottom for quick attachment to my tripod. Works great and makes for very quick setup. Here is a link to one of the panoramas I have made with the Nodal Ninja. It was taken at 1 a.m. on January 21, 2008. Full moon illumination, 13 individual 30 second exposures, 11 degrees F. http://theridgerunner.com/edspics/WaynesSnowPano1a.jpg
As cold as it was, I would have had a very difficult time making this pano with the easy to use Nodal Ninja!
Thanks for a great product and I think I am now entered in the giveaway!
I'm planning to start panoramic photography with NN5 and my Nikon D300, 10.5mm fisheye lens.
Your products is really nice and this site is useful for me.
I have some problem for select your product, especially new accessories.
Would you please provide a guidance for systematic chart of NN5 and accessories.
BTW, Your product name 'NODAL NINJA' is really nice name for Japanese.
'Ninja' is famous Japanese word.
Hi Takezo, Not really sure what you need. We have the manual for NN5L here that will help explain how this pano head works: http://www.nodalninja.com/NN5_USER_MANUAL.pdf
If you have any specific questions please let us know.
I found this site through nikonians. I just got my D300, now I need to a Nodal Ninja. It looks like the Nodal Ninja 3 will do all I need and then some. A free one would be better, but I usually never win these contest. I guess you can't win if you don't try. When comparing what is out there, it seems like it is the best bang for the buck.
Very new at panoramic photography... but looking forward to the learning.
I'm going to keep reading the forums looking for information... but if you could include me in the draw, I would appreciate it.
I just spent two days working with friend who has been shooting VR professionally for years. It appears as if Nodal Ninja is the WAY TO GO!
Just waiting for the IRS check to arrive and stimulate us out of this depression.
Ninja is a great solution to real problem for anyone serious about VR.
