NN4 Starter Package without Lower 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 items are still fully functional and warrantied for 2 years.
The Nodal Ninja 4 is one of the newer pano heads from Fanotec. Replacing the NN5 series the NN4 is a bit more robust featuring greater precision and build quality. The NN4 features an upper rotator with precise 15 degree positive stops, a design borrowed from the advanced Ultimate M1 series. Currently the NN4 does not allow for anything other than 15 degree incremental locks which are rarely needed in typical workflows. The upper rotator however can be configured with an initial offset of +/- 5, 7.5, or 10 degree from the horizon, making it perfect for single row spherical panoramas with various fisheye lenses. This pano head is capable of supporting DSLR's (with or without battery grips) and lenses up to 7.7lbs (3.5kg). NN4 is designed to accommodate a wide range of lenses from ultra wide to 100mm focal lengths (35mm equivalent focal length assuming 25% overlap) . Ideal for anything from 360x180 full HDR spherical panoramas to super high resolution mutli-row gigapixel imagery.
Attractive dual zippered case.
3/8-1/4 threaded screw adapter.
CP-CP2 Camera Plate Included.
Misc parts (washers, hex keys, etc.
Quick reference guide.
All pano heads come with FULL 2 year Warranty protection against manufacturer defects.
Note: The 16-35mm Nikkor lens is not compatible with both the NN3 and NN4 series pano heads.

I was looking for a quality pano head. I was considering different models from different manufacturers. Nodal Ninja 4 is a well designed and built pano head. It feels solid and quality is outstanding. I wanted to save a few bucks and decided to buy a factory irregular one and I don't regret it. I highly recommend it.
