I love Nodal Ninja products and own the NN3MkII and NN5. I also like my new camera, the Canon Powershot S95. It is superb for high-dynamic-range panoramas - it has high pixel count, manual mode and brackets exposures. Ten rotation stops are required in portrait mode at 28mm equivalent focal length. The camera is tiny and far smaller than the NN3MkII.

In my home workshop I conducted major surgery on the pano head. I fabricated a new vertical rail, a custom camera plate, and shortened the upper and lower rails. The weight of the NN2.9MkII dropped to 370 from 535 grams and it fits in the palm of my hand. For a lightweight travel pano rig, this is going to serve well. As high quality cameras continue to shrink in size there may be a market for such a device. Nick...

I just have one concern. Do you suppose I have voided the warranty on my Nodal Ninja product?
