  • R1 nadir adapter: why not rotator mini?

    I have an R1 I use with rotator mini, and am interested in getting the R1 Nadir Adapter, but I noticed at bottom of product page it says not recommended with rotator mini. What's the issue with that combination?

    Hi Jim, the reason is that the locking mechanism on the Rotator Mini V2 does not have enough strength to hold the camera facing downwards to shoot the nadir. The locking mechanism is intended mainly to prevent movement when carrying the gear between shots. The RD5 rotator has a strong locking force and can be used with the R1 nadir adapter.

      Thanks Jan, that helps! I have an RD-16 rotator as well, I assume that would work with the nadir adapter?

        yes. RD16 also work if you don't mind the weight.
