Nodal Ninja Mini for Smartphones and Smaller Cameras

Smartphones and smaller cameras have been continually improving in image quality and resolution. They have reached a point where many photographers are choosing to leave behind their DSLRs and heavier equipment in favor of capturing moments with their lighter-weight cameras and mobile devices.

After releasing adapter and phone holders for use with the regular Nodal Ninjas, Fanotec took on the challenge and developed the Nodal Ninja Mini, a universal pano head dedicated to smartphones and smaller cameras, infused with 20 years of enthusiasm in pano head designs.

The Nodal Ninja Mini enables photographers to harness the full potential of their smartphone cameras for shooting 360-degree panos. Using the wide-angle lens, they can easily produce panos with output resolution over 100 MP, much higher resolution than one-shot cameras can provide. Using the ultra wide-angle lens, the number of shots is reduced to 16, a very manageable amount, yet image quality still largely outperforms one-shot cameras.

With emerging mobile stitching software such as Bimostitch, stitching and publishing can be done on the go. Of course, the highest quality can be obtained by stitching in desktop programs with just a few clicks thanks to accurate No-Parallax-Point alignment mechanism and robust build quality.

The Nodal Ninja Mini also comes with an optional camera mounting plate for small cameras weighing about half a kilogram. Some of them have the same image quality as the full-size DSLRs.

Nodal Ninja Mini paired with a smartphone or a small camera strikes the perfect balance between image quality and portability. The whole unit can be stowed in a zippered hard-shell case, weighing just about 500g (1.1lb).
