Product Reviews

  1. Foolproof setup for No Parallax Point and Tilt Angle

    Posted by Al Kawasaki on 5th Jul 2013

    Once the lens ring is installed, this kit makes for quick and foolproof panorama shooting.


  2. huge timesaver

    Posted by Tim on 1st Jul 2013

    Very happy with this product. The compass is a bit too small and alive to small vibrations. For the rest, excellent!


  3. Very good product.

    Posted by Shawn on 27th Jun 2013

    I found everything to be ideal on this unit for 90 degree increment pano photography. My only criticism would be to put the level in the center of the bottom circular black piece directly below the camera mount. I find sometimes that leveling is difficult when the level itself is not centered.


  4. Very Good, but beware of a couple of issues

    Posted by MIke on 26th Jun 2013

    I have a Nikon D800E with the Sigma 8mm lens and when mounted as described in the instructions the lens will pick up the outside edge of the Ninja base. You will need to reverse the back plate so that the lens does not pick it up in your shots. Doing so fixes this issue but the compass is backwards at this point so your south becomes your north.


  5. Exellent Service

    Posted by Unknown on 26th Jun 2013

    Same Issue. Compass is too small. Fast Shipping. Super Service!
    4 stops works perfect with cropped sensor camera and Sigma 8mm Lens as advertised.
    Total time for shooting 1 HDR panorama including stitching in PTGui: 5 minutes.


  6. 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.


  7. 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!!!


  8. 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.}


  9. 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


  10. 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


  11. Works great for Google Business photography

    Posted by Andy on 3rd May 2013

    Very pleased with build quality, came completely assembled. Got stop insert designed for my lens in separate mailing.
    Instructions for use for Google are slightly off, best to use proprietary instructions from Google.
    Built-in compass & level are quite convenient, although small, and compass sometimes needs to be tapped to unstick needle.
    Light weight, easy to put in camera bag with lens attached.


  12. Good unit.

    Posted by Brian Carey on 3rd May 2013

    Well built and does the job. I bought the unit for a Canon lens and got the Sigma instructions but fortunately the Canon instructions were online. Info could be better, I would like to know if you can adjust the 90 degree indents.


  13. Good build, loss of ability to see the focus mark a real problem.

    Posted by Frank on 15th Apr 2013

    Was pleased by the simplicity of the design and build.
    Would it be possible to drill a view hole through the band to see where the focus point is on the lens.


  14. Excellent Nodal Head

    Posted by Tony on 9th Apr 2013

    The Ultimate R10 is smaller, lighter, and so much easier to use compared to other nodal heads I have used. Great purchase!!


  15. Great overall but weak details

    Posted by Fredrik on 8th Mar 2013

    Build quality and function is great. Easy to put together and good instructions. The only thing to complain about is the compass, cant trust it at all. If i rotate the ball head the compass get stuck in some places and will not move until i give the tripod a shake. And yes its perfectly levelled before rotating.
    (moderator note: The compass only needs to be used once to reference North on first shot. It does not need to move as you rotate the head. If you feel the compass is defective please return for replacement)


  16. Rock Solid and easy to use

    Posted by Bill Heller on 15th Feb 2013

    Like every Nodal Ninja product I've purchased (and there have been quite a few) the R10 is made to last.

    I got the ring for the Canon 8-15 and the stop to preset the exact nodal (or no parallax) point is very handy.

    Other than Google Trusted Photographer shoots, this will be used when I need to get a walking tour of an area including many scenes in an interior space. As opposed to a single multi-row high resolution panorama of an outside view, for which I would recommend one of the multi row NN heads like NN3 (which I have and use often) or Ultimate M, which I have not used, but looks like an amazing piece of equipment.


  17. GTPs - this what you need to take 360 Panos

    Posted by Jeff Finkelstein - Customer Paradigm on 6th Feb 2013

    If you're reading this review, you're probably in the process of signing up for the GTP program. This is a pretty specific piece of gear for stitching together 360 degree panoramic photos with a fisheye lens.

    (I'm in the process of signing up to the GTP program, and the Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package is amazing.)

    Bottom line: this is a really solid piece of gear. All metal construction, smooth action, and built for the professional photographer that will be using this in the real world.

    The built-in level and compass drastically simplify the setup process.

    The metal build is solid, and feels like it's going to last forever. If you're part of the GTP program, this is the one single piece of hardware that you need.

    Setting it up was really easy (even without reading the manual). The plastic insert makes it easy for the shoe to fit into the system at just the precise point. And I was never worried about the lens slipping off because everything was built for a professional.

    It's not a motorized panoramic system; rather it allows you to precisely position your camera for images, and then you rotate clockwise at 90 degree precise angles.

    Shipping was quick.
