RD16x Rotator Factory Irregular
During production there is the occasional paint chip or paint coating flaws on the finishing which may show some signs of irregularity. The rotators are still fully functional and warrantied for 2 years.
This is first generation RD16. Part in a series of Fanotec's top of the line CNC machined advanced rotators. These rotators combines high precision, ease of use, compactness, light weight and durability. The inner ball bearing construction also provides for very fluid rotation. Changing click stops on-the-fly is ideal in time sensitive situations in which shooting must be completed quickly, such as in shooting high resolution multi-image mosaics or shooting the same scene at different focal lengths.
Features you'll find in this new class of rotators.

Awesome rotator and I can't even tell where the factory irregular is. Looks and works as new. Wish there was a way to set 0 degrees toward me when mounting on the tripod. Maybe there's a way, haven't explored enough...

Amazing product. The quality is first class and it works exactly as advertised. I wanted to save a few bucks and bought the factory irregular one and I don't regret it. I highly recommend it.
