Product Description

(ask your Google rep for coupon code)

This is a Google's Trusted Photographer (GTP) recommendation. One of the smallest, lightest precision heads on the market. A single row pano head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses. It's was NASA's choice of equipment for shooting VR aboard the International Space Station.

To become a Google Trusted Photographer Google requires you to select a panoramic tripod head from one of 3 different company's. Of the three companies Google recommends only one - the Nodal Ninja Ultimate R10 (SKU# GTPKG).
Testimonial from Google's Operations Lead
"Thank you for the product update and the impeccable customer service you provide us and our GTP's.... It really shows that Nodal Ninja truly stands behind their product and customer service."

When purchasing the GTP Package you have the option to select which ring. The ring clamp mounts directly onto the lens itself freeing up the camera. Different cameras can be use on the same lens without adjusting any settings. Also included is free external spirit level. The items comes fully assembled.

  1. Works ad advertised

    Posted by Morten Hartvig on 12th Jun 2013

    The only reason for 4 stars, instead of 5, is that the compass is tiny, and therefore not as precise as u expect a compass to be.


  2. You guys Rock

    Posted by Nolan on 7th Jun 2013

    so my review is more for your company than the product. The product is awesome and works great. But what made me really love you guys is that I had forgot to put part of my shipping address in when I ordered. So I called you guys up and left a message explaining my situation. The next day I got an email with everything corrected it was one of the best feelings knowing that you guys actually tried to make the customer happy. (especially after the horrible experience I had with Sigmaphoto). thanks you so much for the awesome support you guys have won a customer for life!!!


  3. Good but could be better

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd May 2013

    this product works as advertised. It is smooth and well finished. However, it was iritating that I had to buy a separate base to get 60 degree click stops for my DX format camera instead of being able to use the one that came with the Ninja unit. they should tell you that 90 degree stops are good only for full frame and that you'll need to pony up another $90 for a pano base that works will all cameras.

    {Nodal Ninja reply: The Google Trusted photographer package has been created per Google's requirements and its workflow requirement of shooting 4-90 degree hemispheres. The option to shoot with a 60 degree rotator is an option outside Google's requirements and should not be viewed as a detriment to the entire package. Remember you purchased the GTP pkg - for people wanting to customize the setup it is recommended to purchase the R1 which gives you greatest flexibility. There is no added charge to swap rotators}


  4. Buen producto

    Posted by www.oliveryanes.com on 17th May 2013

    Este producto ha sido diseñado expresamente para fotógrafos de confianza de Google, así que hace todo lo que se espera de el.
    Es pequeño, ligero y bien acabado.
    Echo de menos que las instrucciones no estén en más idiomas, por ejemplo el español. Esto es algo que no le supone un gran sacrificio a la marca y sin duda, mejoraría la experiencia de usuario para los compradores de habla no inglesa.
    Saludos


  5. Work great / tres bon produit

    Posted by www.overshot.com on 14th May 2013

    Très bon produit parfait pour des 360 avec un canon 8-15
