Ultimate Line of Pano Heads

Fanotec is proud to announce an entirely new line of products called the "ULTIMATE LINE". This new line of products is dedicated to the demanding photographers in seek of the highest quality products. Using CNC machining, these products are built to much higher tolerances resulting in much greater precision and accuracy. Machined and anodized from premium T6061 aluminum result in much enhanced durability and lifetime. The R1, R10 and M1 series pano heads lead the pack with newer products on the horizon.

The Ultimate R1 and R10 use a lens ring clamp for fisheye lenses which have become popular due to its compactness and ease of use. These are very popular for photoragers shooting almost exclusively full spherical panoramas. The R1/R10's were also tested and approved by Google and now part of the suggested equipment for the Google Trusted Photographers in the Google Business Photo's program. Fanotec lens ring clamps are built with special attention to the safety of the lens. Using a wider clamping system than its competitor, the lens ring clamps also incorporate plastic inserts to avoid metal to lens clamping.

Features and Highlights

  • Plastic insert is placed between the outer metal ring and the lens. It is contoured to fit the lens and hence increase area of contact.
  • Large clamping area to reduce stress on the lens barrel, reducing the risk of damaging the lens.
  • Mounted close to the camera to reduce stress on the lens due to gravity of camera body.
  • Rolling the camera/lens in any position including the popular 0, 60 and 90 degree positions.
  • Index marks for every 90 degrees in the front and every 30 degrees at the back for easy alignment of roll of lens.
  • Permanently mounted to lens, making reproducible mounting possible, and much quicker to setup.
  • Compact and light weight.
  • Arca Swiss Compatible quick release design, can be mounted directly to other Arca Swiss compatible system without using R1 or R10.
  • Great for use on a monopod or high pole.
  • Easy to install.
  • Optional advanced rail stop to remember NPP setting.
  • 30 day money back guarantee.
  • 2 year warranty.
