Here comes the long awaited Nodal Ninja Modular M2 Giga without lower rotator, the ideal manual pano head for gigapixel high-resolution imaging using telephoto and super telephoto lenses.
Our unique patented and patent pending design allows precise positive stops of 7.5/5/4/3.75/3/2.5/2/1.5 intervals on the upper rotator, which can be engaged and changed on the fly by simply switching 1 or 2 levers.
When paired with our Advanced Rotator D8II (precise click stops at 30, 15, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.5, 2), it supports up to 700mm equivalent focal length with camera in landscape orientation, or 550mm equivalent in portrait orientation. Due to the precision of the rotators, each photo can have precise coordinates which help stitchers to quickly align the photos just like photos captured by high-end robotic heads. There will be no more stitching issues for a featureless area such as sky or blank wall.
Being a manual panorama tripod head, Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 Giga is much lighter than a robotic pano head for the same load capacity. There is no battery and charger to carry and no worry of the battery running out during a shooting. Due to the intuitive design, M2 Giga can excel a robotic head in terms of speed of capture when a number of photos are less than 600. The rotator indexing can be turned off for free motion, allowing photographers to capture moving elements such as in a sports panorama, or to capture second shots for an area prone to stitching error by change the overlapping region.
Nodal Ninja Ultimate M2 Giga will be available as a pre-assembled unit. An addon is also available for prior M2 owners.
The addon will be available for $330. Customers who purchased an M2 earlier can get a discount for the addon (to be announced).
Other important features:
Nodal Ninja Ultimate Modular System is based on Arca Swiss compatible system, the industry standard for high-end photographic support. The M2 is a design with many years of refinement, integrating years of feature wishes from customers. It fills the gap of Nodal Ninja product line for photographers making high-resolution panos or mosaics with super telephoto lenses. Furthermore, it can act as a gimbal arm for smooth rotation of heavy telephoto lenses at its center of gravity.
