4 stars - Beautifully Machined - Verified Purchase - This is a very nicely made product with excellent support from the manufacturer that performs its intended function perfectly as long as your camera is not too big. A Panasonic GH2 with Olympus 75mm lens fits with a little room to spare. My only complaint is the documentation. It comes with several bags of extra parts and only a printed brochure - no assembly instructions or operating instructions. After some searching I was able to locate these on their web site, but the instructions are not very detailed. Eventually it all makes sense, but don't expect to start using it right out of the box. If you want to use this with Arca-Swiss Q/R plates, you will have to purchase a lever - operated clamp from some other manufacturer as the clamp they sell is operated by a thumb screw that interferes with the operation of the device. In fairness they warned me it was not recommended and offered to let me return it if it didn't work.

5 stars - Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotator Handle - Better than grabbing the camera to turn for 360's but it... By Mr. 360 VERIFIED BUYER I like using it to turn the camera with out touching the camera but it should have come with the Nodal Ninja Ultimate Rotator. I love my ultimate rotator, the quality is amazing. This should have come with the kit even if it would cost 10 bucks more. I think everyone with a rotator will enjoy this better than grabbing the camera. That's my only complaint is it should have been part of the kit but either way...it's worth the 10 bucks! Nodal Ninja makes great equipment for 360's.

4 stars - Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotator Handle - Very necessary By Len VERIFIED BUYER It may just be me, but I found this handle to be a very necessary addition to the Ninja. Although I could easily rotate the rig using the camera itself, it just doesn't feel like the right thing to do.

5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - On the Level ...Really By RVDigitalBoy VERIFIED BUYER I bought the EZ Leveler II in order to shoot level panoramas with my new Nodal Ninja M1L panorama head. It works as advertised. I attach the EZ Leveler II to my sturdy Manfroto tripod. To the EZ I attach the M1L. Using the M1l's bubble level I make adjustments to my tripod's ball head. Then I fine tune the level with the EZ until the bubble is centered. That's all there is to it.

5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Efficient and easy to use By xact VERIFIED BUYER I got this to replace a ball head that I was using to do panoramic shots. I use it in conjunction with a Nodal Ninja R10. I like that it has such a low profile and allows me to make the fine tune adjustments I need to get the camera level. I put a Manfrotto RC2 quick release adapter on so I can quickly transition from panos to POIs using the same tripod.
5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Excellent leveler, affordably priced By dmytrowp VERIFIED BUYER I am Google Photographer and I work for a Google Agency that specializes in virtual tours. This leveler is used for the panos (panoramic 360 images). It is a workhorse and a part that is vital to creating the panoramic images.Everything is excellent, the build quality is top notch. We've had a few other copies of this leveler for a few years and the only thing is that the adjustment knobs started to squeak a bit during adjusting, but a little wd - 40 on the threads and the leveler was as good as new.

5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - EZ is the the word! By Intrepid Tre' The EZ Leveler is the key to speedy leveling and accurate bubble control for shooting panos. Was this review helpful to you?
5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Very pleased By Allison This EZ leveler works great and saves me a lot of time! Wish I had ordered sooner!
John Wong 
5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Perferct for precise leveling By John Wong VERIFIED BUYER Well crafted and easy to handle, this is just what I needed for leveling my camera shooting interiors. I use a tilt shift lens for a lot of my shooting and this is much more precise and quicker getting to level than a 3 way or ball head. Using the head to adjust was always a fidgity trial and error, then re-adjust. When you are on location and the client is watching, it looks like you don't know what you are doing. That's the worst impression you can give them. Now, I get close with the head and it's a quick adjust of the knobs to level. The knobs feel substantial to my hands and can be adjusted in large or small incremental turns. They dial smoothly and don't bind. Attaching to the tripod and head is straightforward and easy. Solid, sturdy connections and no sloppiness. Highly recommended!!
5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - this product make my work faster and easier By Monica VERIFIED BUYER I used this product to level the tripod and take pictures for the tour 360 degrees to google street view tour.
5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Light and useful By Paul VERIFIED BUYER I use this leveler as light weight option to level a NEX - 6. It works fine and is just what I needed for cylinfric panorama pics. I already owned a light Novoflex rotator: the combo is what I need for my backpack. I didn't tried larger DSLR with this combo.
5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - A Great Leveling Plate By John VERIFIED BUYER A really nice piece of gear. Works like a dream. This was purchased after trying to use the Manfroto 338 leveling base which is a poorly assembled unit and a waste of money.
5 stars - NN Reversible Brass Detent Rings for NN3 MkII Panoramic Head - Great Customer Service By Mim VERIFIED BUYER. I haven't had a chance to actually use the rings. I'm sure they will do the trick. I just wanted to mention that I purchased the nodal ninja starter kit and it was missing the rings. (I'm not sure how many were supposed to be in the kit) Anyway, I contacted customer service of the issue and they promptly sent me a set of seven no charge. I was pleased.

ADMIN NOTE: We include 2 rings with each kit (15/0 + 45/60)

5 stars - NN RD16-II Rotator - High quality material By Simon VERIFIED BUYER High quality

5 stars - NN RD16-II Rotator - Compression screw is so small but it is working well By necati ufuk. Rotator is good design and working well but I tried to show 2 pictures how it looks like on different 2 leveler. Compression screw is so small an is close to base, I think that it is not big deal because when you already use rotator, I have not experience about rotator but my opinion you will not to need to see chart of angle degree when you work it.
5 stars - NN RD16-II Rotator - Worth the price By Gerald VERIFIED BUYER. Plan on using for all of my panos. The preset stops are a godsend. Especially in low or no light.
5 stars - NN M2 NO Rotator - Just Right For My Needs By rlstoz VERIFIED BUYER. The Ultimate M2 is a beautifully crafted piece of equipment and it's a joy to use. After shooting more than 100 panos and mosaics with this rig, under a variety of conditions, I am confident this is the right tool for my needs. Those needs mostly include shooting mosaics, using my best mid focal length lenses, to produce hi-res images suitable for large prints. The M2 makes that about as easy as possible. I bought the head without the RD8-II rotator because I wanted to use the RD16-II rotator instead. The RD16-II is better suited to the focal lengths I use. Shooting very long focal lengths to produce ultra hi-res images is not something I do often. I mostly use this rig for shooting mosaics using lenses in the 24mm to 100mm (EFL) range. These mosaics range from 4 shots up to 72 shots resulting in wide to ultra-wide images after stitching. Most of them stitch without problems in the most recent version of Lightroom - no need for dedicated pano software. This rig requires a solid tripod and it's quite heavy so it is not very portable (I use a much smaller pano head and tripod for the backcountry) but, once set up, it makes panos and mosaics easy to shoot. I chose the M2 specifically because it is very precise and, coupled with the rotator, allows me to shoot multi-shot images with a minimum of effort. Every adjustment on the M2 is precise and very solid. It is manufactured to extremely high standards. It is more than adequate in every way. If you are new to multi-shot panos and mosaics consider that to really take advantage of this rig you will need to make quite detailed setup notes specific to your equipment and situation. This takes more than a little time. You will need to note at least three positions on the scales of the M2 for each camera/lens combination. For zooms lenses you may want more details. If you are not willing to take the time to make and use accurate setup notes you will not gain much/any benefit from this head!

5 stars - NN RD5 Rotator - Don't be surprised by the small package! By Justin VERIFIED BUYER This is a solid rotator base! It's easy to set up and start using quickly. A cool feature that wasn't mentioned in the product page, the indint resistence is adjustable with a hex key that's included. I can see this feature being useful with cameras of varying weight. I put it pretty loose and it works perfect with my 6D. I would recommend this product.
4 stars - R-D3L 6-8-30 Rotator with Built-In EZ-Leveler-MKII - Nodal Ninja Rotator MKII By Erv VERIFIED BUYER Very easy to install, setup for desired shots and the level is very accurate.
