Motorized Panoramic Head – The MECHA PLAYLIST

Single Axis MECHA Automated Solution for Nodal Ninja 3 MK2, MK3 or Nodal Ninja RS1

The motorized MECHA E1 rotator will support up to 6.6bs (3kg), including the pano head above it. It is lightweight, quiet and power efficient. Together with a single axis Controller C1 (F9910), it automates the panning axis of supported Nodal Ninjas
Another set of E1 rotator and C1 controller can be added to motorize Nodal Ninja MK3 tilt axis for multi-row applications.

MECHA E1 is NOT recommended for larger Nodal Ninjas (NN6 and M Series) unless only a small camera and lens are used.

Essential Items NOT Included:

  • One Long Shutter Release Cable for Dual-Axis MECHA

Recommended Accessories:

  • PC Sync Cable for Shutter Release Confirmation
  • Hot Shoe to PC Sync Adapter (for Cameras without PC Sync Port)

MECHA is compatible with cameras having a wired remote port. Use the Select Shutter Release Cables filter to check compatibility and choose the right cable for your camera.

MECHA can only trigger the camera. It acts like a typical remote shutter release. Auto exposure bracketing is done by the camera.
