  1. Question about R10 static head...

    #1

    The base plate/mount on the R10 has two countersunk holes for attaching to an R series rotator. If one wants to screw the R10 directly to a monopod or pole of some kind, one has to purchase and additional piece of hardware called the Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1/R10 Pole Adapter. That piece has a central threaded hole that can screwed onto a monopod or pole and then the R10 is screwed onto that adapter.

    Wouldn't it be simpler in many cases to just put a threaded hole in the center of the base plate/mount so that the R10 can be screwed directly to a monopod or pole without adding more hardware at the top of the monopod or pole?

    It has one if you buy an R10 with advanced rotator R-D4 that can be screwed on any regular tripod/poles. If you remove the R-D4 (useless at top of pole), and use R10 alone on top of pole, you'll need to add the little pole adapter (there are two screws to attach R10 on R-D4 so it can't be adapter directly on top of a tripod/pole ! that's why the use of that little adapter !

    That was my point. So there is no threaded hole in the bottom of the R10 that can be used to screw the R10 directly to a monopod or pole. Right? One has to use that extra piece of hardware just to screw the R10 to the monopod or pole?

    Rotators are unnecessary on monopods/poles. Just twist the monopod/pole.

    Right, considering how the bottom part of R1/R10 is built, it can't include in the middle an extra threaded hole, part would be then too fragile !

    well if you want to be really precise, it might be a good help one pole rotator at bottom of pole, I like to use it when I shot pole panoramas in ski lift as with tilting of lift sometimes you are not so sure of angle you turned the pole !
