  1. R-D3L tension

    #1

    I was wondering: is there a way to increase the tension of the R-3DL?
    When my camera is mounted it swings too easily through the stops to my liking.

    sorry, there is no way to increase the tension.
    hmm, I thought the smoothness was a preferred feature.

    Yep, but it depends on the weight of the rotator+camera.

    And I did not realize that you couldn't lock it when I bought it, so it is virtually impossible to take a nadir from the tripoid as described in this technique.
    Oh well, I think I should buy a RD8 after all then.

    (and i do miss the storage hole for the 1/4" - 3/8" adapter.... )

    Hi KG,
    If you would like the RD8 we are more than willing to exchange and refund the difference - just touch basis with me at bill[at]nodalninja[dot]com
    thx

    if a lock for nadir shot or transportation is what you need, I may be able to make an external lock. BTW, at 0 deg the 3 detent plungers coincide with one another. they may be strong enough for your camera to take the nadir shot.
    sorry no storage hole 1/4"-3/8" adapter. It makes it ugly and is omitted.
