Like Vincen mentioned the conference was crazy busy and we were unable to setup for higher resolution images. Plus we only had small window of opportunity to show these new toys to the public during the conference.
We have finally returned and unpacked all the gear. Now we need to clean the stuff up and prepare them for better product images - maybe by weeks end.
Thank you very much for your patience.
OK - here are few better quality images of the new modular system.
We'll add more soon...
note to Nick: please modify post as needed to append description to images.

This looks like a great set, and I am sure that some of the arms could fit the original Merlin (automatic head) crown... at least without too much extra work/parts. Maybe a couple of hard rubber strips on the sides.
If that is the case, I am sure that many Merlin users would be all over you! I have still not finished making my Merlin head ready, the final thing is because of the crown/arm issue.
Looking forward to this becoming available.
Thanks for keep on evolving the products and listen to the back-land!
I too would be curious to learn about possible cross compatibility with other products. This is only the first of 3 series which will be due out later this year.
Ahh yes New products worth the wait I believe.
Thank you for the welcome and introduction I have been a member of the forums for quite some time, only lurking in the shadows.
Images #6 and #7 (counting from the bottom and up) depict the short arm... can you confirm the measurements of it being
If that is the case, it should be possible to use it with the Merlin crown only adding rubber strips at the sides.... but probably depending on camera lens combo.
A 160 mm long arm is the longest possible for the Merlin head, without modifications (so that the vertical arm can travel 360° freely)
But this Merlin part of the discussion should probably be placed somewhere else in the forums...
Welcome Trausti to nodal ninja forum.
Bill, he is not only the developer of flashificator, but one of the busiest guys on the panoguide forum with lots of great hints.
Hey .. well done.. it looks very good !!
I love what I am seeing... I take it the groove in vertical rail is for further attachments, that we have not seen yet. (lens rings??)
Very well done Nick.
Here are some quickie photos showing how you can use lens ring clamps on the system and also how are you are able to take the down shot.

With the release of your new modular system, will this mean the end of the NN5 line of pano heads?
