  1. How do the stops work on the R-D12?

    #1

    I am interested in the Nodal Ninja 3 MKII w/Rotator R-D12. I’ve never used any equipment like this before and am trying to understand the degree stops and how they work. For example if the 20 degree setting is chosen then there would be 18 stops. Are these physical stops? Does one feel a click as the camera is rotated? If time is an issue, how long would it take to move between stops and take the individual pictures? How exactly does this system work?

    hi,

    In fact you select number of stops by screwing a little know. Then when you turn the rotator you'll feel some click that indicates where to stop It's pretty simple and efficient system and it works great and it's quick

    So assuming that everything is setup and a remote is used for triggering the shutter, one could take the pictures as fast as you could turn the R-D12?

    I want to get setup to take panoramas of large flocks of snow geese while in flight. They are usually at least ¬? mile away and stretch out for over a mile. Is this realistic or will the motion of the birds create a blur when blown up to a 3 x 5 foot print?

    Yep you are right, that's what I do here with my D3, a remote for shutter, and just move camera to next stop, move back, trigger the shutter, move to next stop, and so on ....

    A flock of birds is one occasion where hand-holding and rapid fire might be best; especially at half a mile distance when parallax should not be a problem.
    Though it depends if you have a close foreground, which would be problematic.
