Rotator Mini Ultimate Line of Pano Heads Rotator Mini

We've made it smaller and lighter. Instead of the RD4 rotator, we developed a smaller rotator similar to the pole rotator. The R1 is designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses such as the Sigma 8mm or Nikon 10.5mm lens along with many other popular fisheye lenses. The R1 pano head incorporates a unique cantilever tilting option suitable for different fisheye lens on different sensor formats under different applications. The ring clamp mounts directly onto the lens itself freeing up the camera. Different cameras can be used on the same lens without adjusting any settings.

  • Ideal for pole photography and/or use with monopod
  • Arca Swiss Compatible quick release design.
  • Options to capture (off-set from No-Parallax-Point) the zenith (up shot) and nadir (down shot) making nadir and zenith patching easier and making sharp long exposure captures possible.
  • Rolling the camera/lens in any position including the popular 0, 60 and 90 degree positions.
  • Lens clamp permanently mounted to lens making reproducible mounting possible, and much quicker to setup.
  • Different cameras can be used on the same lens without adjusting any settings.
  • Compact and light weight great for use on monopods and high poles.
  • Much easier to use.
  • Small nadir footprint.
  • Built-in spirit level.
  • Optional spirit level that allows rotation to the side and back for better viewing
  • Optional rail stop that is integrated into the Lens Ring Plate
