  1. Question about travel pole tripod adapter with Manfrotto tripod

    #1

    Hello everyone
    I'm a new joiner to your fabulous forum, i started shooting 360 panorama not long time ago, u may consider me as learner , excuse my English if i make any mistakes , i won NN Ultimate M1-L with RD16-II and other stuff
    I'm considering to buy
    1- Nodal Ninja R1 head without rotator, I'm planning to use it with my advance rotator RD16-II,
    i believe it will work R1 ,please correct me if I'm wrong
    2- travel pole.
    I own two Manfrotto tripods 055CXPRO3 and 190CXPRO4 , both have tri-facet central column, i would like to use my tripod to support the travel pole and perhaps gain more height, as far as i understood from reading some post in the the forum i have to get tripod adapter for the travel pole to be attached to the tripod (http://shop.nodalninja.com/tripod-ad...vel-pole-f7306), i wonder if my mentioned above tripods are going to fit with this adapter? or if i need other accessories/installation.
    Your help is much appreciated

    best regard

    R1 would need an adapter or Quick Mount Mini adapter to use it on RD16.
    tripod adapter for travel pole is compatible with your tripods.

    Thank you nick,
    I'm glad u stepped in, one of the reasons for me to join these forum is the kind help you and Heinz provide here, i have many questions regarding my gears which i plan to purchase, i live in Africa and there is no way for me to order the wrong parts since it will be very difficult for me to resend and get the correct one, i hope u will be patient with my annoying questions :)
    Yes I'm planning to get the QMM too and I'm glad to know that the tripod adapter for travel pole is compatible with my tripods .
    Shall i request inserts for 28 and 25mm for my central columns? or these inserts are intended for tripod adapter type B ? as mentioned in demonstrating images by Heinz in this thread (http://www.nodalninja.com/forum/show...-Series-2-Pole).
    Also as i understand the top part of the central column need to be removed, i tried that but i couldn't, it need a lot power to pull it out, do u know how can i achieve that

    Tripod adapter Type B now contains 25/26/28/32 mm fittings. You don't need to remove top part of center column.

    It good to know that the upper part of the central column does not need to be removed in order to attach the tripod adapter, i thought i read it some where,
    Sorry nick i did not get it , i want to order travel pole , is Tripod adapter Type B will fit with travel pole ? where can i order it ? i do not see it in the accessories page (http://shop.nodalninja.com/pole-accessories-3)
    so i do not need to order tripod adapter for the travel pole (http://shop.nodalninja.com/tripod-ad...el-pole-f7306/)

    opps , i found the tripod adapter type B on that page , you must mean this (http://shop.nodalninja.com/tripod-ad...2-type-b-f7316), just to make sure nick, this will work with travel pole too, right?

    If you buy the Travel pole, get the Tripod adapter specially made for it. It is Type B. But we don't have Type A for it.

    Other Tripod Adapter does not fit.
