Fanotec® Spherical Panoramic Tripod Head Nodal Ninja 5 & 5L - Complete Manual

If your camera has a tripod mount that is offset from the center of the barrel of the lens, you will need the N3T30 or N3T30 offset T-adapter. First, determine if the T-adapter will be needed. Look at the base of your camera and note the position of the 1/4" female tripod mount. If this tripod mount is off center from the center portion of the lens, you'll need to use the small camera bracket. If it is 20mm or less, you can use the N3T20. If the offset is greater than 20mm and less than 30mm, you can use the expanded N3T30 T-adapter. Using the T-adapter allows your camera to be positioned on the Nodal Ninja in such a way as to achieve proper rotation about a camera lens NPP. (NN3 used in sample images).
