GTP R10 Package for Canon EF 8-15mm
Nodal Ninja Ultimate R10 7.5° Tilt with lens ring for Canon 8-15mm f/4 USM fisheye is a very portable and easy to use package for Google Trusted Photographers.
Package Contents of R10 GTP Package
Depending on resellers, the package may come pre-assembled or individually with R10 tilt head, lens ring, Rotator Mini (RM) and compass bubble level.
Installing R10 Tilt Head and Bubble Level on Rotator Mini
Place the level on RM with bubble facing up. Place R10 tilt head on the level as shown. Align for the mounting sockets. Install 2 M5 flat head screws to fix R10 head to RM.
Mounting Lens Ring Clamp on the Tilt Head
First of all, make sure the R10 head has an upward tilt. If not, reinstall it.
Install the lens ring on the lens according to its installation guide at the back. Mount the lens on the camera. Mount lens ring on QR clamp of R10. Tighten the clamp slightly.
Slide the lens ring plate (LRP) to the NPP setting. There are 3 lines marked on the QR clamp. Use the center line for distance reading. Other lines are 1.5mm apart from the center line. Use them to assist reading to an accuracy of 0.5 mm. Use the side opposite to the QR handle for best accuracy.
NPP setting for 4 shots around at 8mm focal length is 1.8. Check that the LRP has "LRP45X" labeled at the base. For other LRPs, the setting is 0.8.
To orient the panorama in the map, move the tripod so that the red pointer aligns with the white mark on the compass. Now the camera is pointing to the North. Look at the compass from the front for best reading accuracy.
Level the R10 head by adjusting tripod legs or a level adjustment device.
Installing the Preset Integrated Stop Plate on Lens Ring
A preset integrated stop plate sets the lens at the NPP quickly and precisely. Verify the stop plate is marked "103". It is for Canon 8-15mm f/4 on R10 7.5° up tilt and 4 shots around specifically.
Align the stop plate with the base of LRP. Push to snap it in place.
Install the stop screw (came with the stop plate) at the middle socket on the QR clamp. Remove any other safety screw installed. Mount the lens ring on the clamp. Slide until it falls into the stop. Confirm the NNP reading is 1.8 (or 1.825 more precisely).
