  1. Very happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2015

    This unit is very well built. I was able to get it up and tuning in a very short time. I went online at Nodal Ninja to learn about parallax and entrance pupil I thought nodal point). I will be able to get out and make perfect panos now. I an using it on a Nikon 7100 and Tokina 11-16 mm at this time.

  2. Refreshing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2013

    How refreshing it is to buy something that is worth what you paid. I don't usually write reviews, but I was inspired. Light weight, solid, easy to assemble, notched disc for precision panoramic shots, well designed, spare parts, etc.. I have a 7D, and the NN3 supports the weight of the camera without shake. If it's not already obvious, I highly recommend the NN3.

  3. Lightweight, compact, reliable. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2013

    I use this head for different applications few years already. Totally satisfied with it's compactness and reliable performance. Perfect solution for using with small DSLR or ILS body combined with small rectilinear or fisheye lens. Easily accommodates my 5DMkII in combination with EF 8-15 fisheye lens.
    I have few NN pano heads (actually all of them :)) and pick NN3 in situations when I need precise zenith shot.
