Note: The 16-35mm Nikkor lens is not compatible with both the NN3 and NN4 series pano heads.
The Canon EF 8-15mm is very long for a fisheye and may require use of T-30-III T-adapter which gives a bit of added adjustment length.

This panorama head is called the Nodal Ninja 3 series which is designed to be compact and lightweight.
Compatible with our up and coming Automatic Pan Tilt Modules for auto rotation and shooting. Shoot single row or multi-row full spherical panoramas.
If you would like to shoot the nadir (down shot or footprint) purchase NN3 MKII nadir adapter (F9125)). The NA allows you to easily swing the vertical assembly allowing camera to point straight down to the ground.
