500.) Hi Bill, Just said I'd let you know that last Sunday I was awarded the Irish Professional Photographers Association Photographer of the Year for 2010. This is something I could not have achieved without the use of your fantastic Nodal Ninja panorama head. THANKS

499.) When I purchased my NN3 MKII I commented on this forum that it was a superbly engineered device, but Nick has managed to find room for improvement with the introduction of the Nodal Ninja Anti-Twisting Camera Mounting Plate...... Yes Nick, the enhancement is very helpful. It is clear that when one purchases an NN product you get more than just a great bit if kit.

497.) I read the review in Digital Photography magazine awhile back which prompted me to buy your product here in the UK. I've always enjoyed making panoramas and as a professional photographer I have always grappled with the stitching taking endless hours to fix in Photoshop. Having a pano head has made my work easier. I was a bit reserved initially thinking low cost head equals low quality results, nothing could be further from the truth. My Nodal Ninja 5 is strong, robust, and gives me the precision I seek. Excellent product all the way around. Best regards

496.) Nodal Ninja Team, Thank you very much for taking care of me in such a timely manner. So far, I am very impressed with the quality of the NN products. It was more money than I was hoping to spend (even though I do recognize that it's not all THAT expensive), but I suffer no buyer's remorse. I feel like I've gotten more than my money's worth. On top of that, and as I've already said, I'm thrilled with the customer service. I feel like you've gone above and beyond and I thank you.

493.) It's not so much about getting it as it is you guys going the extra mile to try to make it right for me. It may be that it won't work at all (I hope that's not the case), but I'm not going to hold that against you. I think the "wings of support" are excellent and will keep me coming back. I also appreciate the return/exchange policy. You haven't developed a product and just rested, you keep developing new stuff. (I'm especially excited to pick up that little Nadir Jig you have coming soon.) End of gushing... starting to sound too much like a fan boy and not just a fan.

486.) Hi Bill, I would like to send a note thanking you and the team at Nodal Ninja for the support and quality of products that you guys have been hard working on. It is during a recent conversation with my customers that made them truly understand that quality products alone is not enough and they are very very happy with the support that they have gotten from us. There was a few calls from 2 particular customers here in Singapore that stood out. I would like to convey their message to you should they not have emailed you directly yet.... more

476.) I just wanted to say thanks! for shipping your product out to me so quickly! Maine is a helluva long way from AZ; I ordered from you on Sat./Sun (don't remember) and I received my panohead today! (3 days).

473.) Hi, all I just received my new RD16 and EZ-Leveler, to match with my NN5. I must say that I'm impressed. About EZ-Leveler-II, If you saw "Cast Away", the movie, the main character , played by T. Hanks, how hard he tried to make fire on the island, then long after, at home, how he looks in his hand and lights the pocket lighter, making the fire in a split. The same was me, enjoying allot how I can now fine move the bubble on the spirit level by rotating the knobs of EZ-Leveler-II remembering the leveling on my first cheap tripod which had strong legs but soft plastic head..... both products looks awesome, strong, and professional made. thank you,
Dorin, Romania (Nodal Ninja Forum)
472.) I just bought the NN5 with the R-D16. I picked it up from Dennis over at North Bay Panos and should be getting it anytime. I must say that Dennis is very nice, and easy to talk to , even helping with suggestions on software etc which for a pano newbie is always great. We PayPaled him the payment and he had it overnighted to us the same day. Looking forward to sharing some of the shots I get with this new toy.

469.) My first professional panoramic tripod head! I have just purchased my first panoramic tripod head: Nodal Ninja 3 MKII with RD3L 6-8-10 Rotator/EZ-Leveler-II! I am so excited I can barly wait! I bought it last Thursday and I can't stand waiting. I keep refreshing the tracking page of USPS every hour! I am new to panoramic photography but I have been fascinated with it for a long time now.....So I finally decided to commit some money to my fascination and I purchased a very promising product. I can't wait to try it out. For a beginner in this exciting photographic sector....Like I said before, I can't wait!

466.) Congrats to the Nodal Ninja Team! Congrats to Nick and Bill and everyone involved with the Nodal Ninja! I am a true believer in this product and their dedication to excellent service. I couldn't imagine using any other pano head. The size and portability, not to mention the low cost, just can not be beat. This forum is another great way for anyone interested in panoramic photography and I have definitely added this site to my list of resources when I get stumped or need some advise on anything related to panoramas. Please post your appreciation here when you have a moment. I know the Nodal Ninja team would love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks! Ed F. (NN forum)

giorgosmg (NN forum)
462.) First Panos! Yay! For those looking for a review of the RD16... I love it, it's easy to use, built rock solid and the stops just click into place perfectly. I haven't tried any other pano head setup, but this one works so well I'll never need to worry about it. I'm going to pick up the leveler next, because leveling on the tripod was a tremendous pain in the arse (certainly not NN's fault!!), but otherwise it's glorious. Buy one immediately!Cheers

mikexm (NN forum)
460.) I have just (2 weeks ago) bought from NN in the states a NN5 and Rd16 rotator. Today, after two weeks it didnt arrive so I mailed Bill Bailey at NN in the US. He told me my package was lost by the couriers, I was devastated as I had a shoot this Tuesday in Liverpool and needed the NN so bad.
To my AMAZEMENT Bill Bailey immediately contacted his suppliers in both Scotland and Italy, both of whom contacted me within minutes and were bending over backwards to help in getting an NN5 to me. It has ended up I am having one couriered from Italy to the shoot in Liverpool at the expense of NN. I just had to write this as I have never had such great service from a company in my life. Brilliant Nodal Ninja, great customer service.
Mike S. UK
459.) Bill, I thank you for your prompt response and accept your apologies. The way you responded to my dissatisfaction made me think that you indeed care a great deal about your customers and that I was just unlucky. With the regained confidence in Nodal Ninja I ordered R-D16 today.
Piotr M USA
458.) Dear NN Team, I know you have heard this before but I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents worth. I hear about you guys everywhere, not only for the wonderful products you sell which I too have been excpetially pleased with to, but also the great support for helping the lesser expereincec like me. keep it up, your company sets the standard.

Larry L. USA
455.) I upgraded to a NN5 to support more extreme conditions, such as being on top of a windy volcano. So for most conditions you can do just fine with the [DELETED]. Also the [DELETED] I had was a little larger and did not pack up as small as the NN5.
S.G. (panotools forum)
454.) What I use now, are Nodal Ninja products (NN5 head, Ultimate R1 lensring, EZ leveler, D16 rotator) and THAT I am very happy for, and can absolutely recommend the NN products to others based on high quality build and super customer service.
T.H. (panotools forum)
453.) NodalNinja is "THE BEST" & Customer Service is Awesome - Hello Pano Lovers I really can't put it in words the way i feel about nodal ninja company and their customer service. Especially Bill. They have replaced my Nodal Ninja because of the small issue i have been having. You may be convinced saying that all company will replace. But can you expect them to replace the way you expect? That's where nodal ninja & bill comes. Yes, He received my NN5 today and he told me by max he could do that driving 30 miles for me to get it shipped by tomorrow overnight since i need it for a shoot on thursday. But supposedly he has to send it to me on friday since they are on holiday tomorrow. I did not want him to drive 30 miles for me and i convinced myself because i made a mistake not sending it in express shipping so it got delayed. But now he replaced it and sent it in a USPS express shipping. Which company cares that you take pano or no? All they care about is to sell their products and simply make money. They are least worried about what you do and when you need it. But NODAL NINJA IS THE BEST EVER FOR PANORAMIC INDUSTRY. Anyone would like to write a review about Nodal Ninja please use this thread. It will be helpful for the future buyers. Thank You! Best
thambi (Panoguide Posting)
452.) thambi, I would also like to add my praise to Fanotec. It all started when I ordered an Ultimate R1 head and a Sigma 8mm f/3.5 lens clamp. The plastic insert was not allowing the focus to operate correctly and the lens was not being gripped correctly. After modifying the plastic insert for the ring clamp, Nick sent me the new insert, a monopod adapter, two rail stops (still prototype), a clamp on bubble level and a carrying case all for free! He even paid for shipping. All I was expecting was a new plastic insert for the lens clamp (which by the way works GREAT). I had suggest a design for a monopod adapter. I did not know that they were just finishing up their first production run. Nick included a one for free. I have no problem giving my hard earned cash to Fanotec. I know that I will get a very well designed product and EXCELLECT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
Dennis (Panoguide forum)
451.) Same here...
Bigwade (Panoguide forum)
450.) Fanotec/Nodalninja are the greatest when it comes to service. Nick and Bill are great guys and really listen to costumers Products are almost flawless and when there is something wrong they prompty help you. I really love you guys! (well in a matter of speaking that is. Regards,

449.) I'll add my endorsement as well! It is great to see a company that believes in customer service. Thanks.
Tim E. (Panoguide forum)
448.) yes i totally agree with all the positive feedback about nodal ninja.
fatchai (Panoguide froum)
447.) BECAUSE of the very positive comments about NN and having seen the HUMAN approach towards the customers, I have no reason to even consider buying a manual head from anywhere else. When those who buy a product are treated well EVEN when there may be some problems in the transaction or production or shipping dates expire etc, it shows that it's a company worth doing business with. I will be placing an order in the coming days, knowing that the service will be exceptionally good and friendly. Everywhere I have come across comments relating to NN, these have been positive. Both in private discussions and on public forums. There are "some people/businesses" who could absolutely benefit from studying and adapting the customer-care NN so blatantly has on public display. Will I find out when buying NN, that I get more than what I pay for, in contrast to other companies that claim their customers only get what they pay for? Time will tell. But it sure is good to see so many positive and happy customers leaving their comments.
Trausti (Panoguide forum)
446.) thank you again. your customer service is simply the best!
Gorana J. MD USA
445.) Translated by google: Hello. I already have the new Nodal Ninja R1 and it seems to me a gem. Lightweight and robust. And I have studied the protocol for taking pictures nadir and zenith in the nodal point. I wonder if they intend to make an accessory for mounting the panoramic head (R1) over the Rotator with Bulit in EZ-Leveler-II (RD3L). Thus Leveler would be incorporated into the system. I have also seen that by combining different accessories can mount Ring Lens for Nikon 10.5mm at Nodal Ninja 3. Thank you very much!

444.) Dear Bill, The pano of the Museum is 14GB. And it is the largest spherical Pano. There are some much larger cylindrical panos but the second largest spherical pano ( made by the XRes studio) is "only" 2 Gigapixel ( The Museum Pano I created is 5,3 Gigapixel ).....I used NN5... 5dmk2, 100mm Macro and NN5, Regards,

I really need to congratulate you for that high-quality tool! It makes really fun to work with that head! I didn't expected that he is so solid. Thank you! Best regards,
Michael B. Canada
441.) Bill, I realize you guys probably do not receive as many thank you's as you should. So here it is - I just ordered my NN5 with RD16 late Thursday night I believe. It just arrived this morning - wow! I just cant say thanks enough for the super fast shipping. It is still sitting wrapped in my lap at the moment, but I will get it out and begin playing tonight! I am super excited! I've got to get familiar with it before my big trip at the end of this month to Teton National Park and possibly Yellowstone. And on top of the fast shipping, the military discount is very much appreciated too. Thank you.

440.) Hello Bill,..... I just wanted to say that last week I purchased a Nodal Ninja 3 from Red Door in the UK and I think it is a beutifully engineered piece of equipment. I would send this message to Nick Fan, but his address is not listed. I have been using another make of Panoramic Head, but there is no comparison with the Nodal Ninja. Great product! Best regards,

439.) Hello Bill, just wanted to say thank you very much; I've recieved my Nodal Ninja!! You guys are a great, I'll recommend anyone here on the island that if they're wanting to get into 360 panoramics I'll put a good word for you guys over there. Thanks again, you guys rock!

435.) Bill, Received the NN5L with RD16 yesterday as advertised. Set it up on my patio, played with determining nodal point for 24mm end of 24-70mm Nikon zoom and had test shots stitched in short order. Very nice product!I can see the added detent stops of the RD16 are very useful, especially when working with longer focal length lenses. Thanks for the advice and quick response getting everything shipped.
Randy M. California USA
434.) I will highly recommend you guys to my photographer friends.. Many businesses would have just shipped it with no questions.. Your company took the time to ask.. This is an exceptional company in my book that I am glad to deal with!
Paul G. USA
432.) Nick how cool is the R1 Ulitmante? I use in on my Canon 5D and a 8mm lens. The setup is soooo easy and the workflow is soooo fast! I can get into a location setup, take the shots, and leave all befoe folks say "who was that fast man". Very clever design. 3 shots arounf with a 2.5 tilt up and done. I can very repeatbale results. The equipment is solid and very well built. I'm keeping the Nodal Ninja 5 as back up for when I do moasics. Bill was very helpful and even gave me a cursoity call a couple weeks later to see how things were going - WHAT COMPANY DOES THAT? Excellent product, excellent service - happy customer.
Steven F. Nevada USA
433.) Dear Mauro, this morning your shipment with the my new NN5 arrived here safely. Let me say the following very clear and loud: You - and the people at Nodal Ninja as well - managed this issue in a superior and absolutely professional style! It is great to meet and do business with people like you!Thank you very much for your great support. With best regards from Germany, PS: No problem, if you want to quote this customer feedback somewhere.
Josef T. Germany
432.) Thank you, Bill.FYI only, we used to use others, but eventually "standardizing" to your system because of:
1. The bottom footprint is very small
2. Light weight to carry for photographers (important for us)
3. Good price
4. Sturdy (haven't failed yet on the road) Definitely best we’ve found so far, so thanks.

Michael v. R. Denmark
428.) Buongiorno. Thanks for your quick reaction. We solved the problem that is, instead of change the NN3 for a NN5, the sales people at fotoKonijnenberg, Turnhout (where I bought the NN3) proposed a non-zoom lens, a Canon 28mm, which fits nicely and alows me to make panos' ad galore. Just in time because we are leaving for an Italian two-weeks holiday next saturay. (Bari etc).Again, many thanks.
Jean V. Netherlands (Canon 28mm)
427.) Hi Bill, Let me first say the speed and extensive help of your response has been very favorable, I greatly appreciate that. As I am very anxious to finish my panoramic project I will go ahead and take you up on your offer for the Lite version of a used NN5. As far as returning the NN3 what are the steps? I did not expect such an offer and you have turned my disposition to Nodal Ninja in a complete 180. If all goes well and the product I receive works as advertised I will be sure to share my pleasant experience and the functionality of your products on the many forums I am active in. While of course maintaining discretion on the gracious offer you have made.
Daniel K. USA (Canon 5D + 24-70L)
426.) No complaints! In fact, The reason for this message is to tell you how pleased I am with my NN3-II, which arrived today. Now that I can hold it in hand, instead of just looking at it on my monitor, I can't imagine what one of your competitors would be giving me for the extra $300-$1000 dollars. Well done!

425.) Hi Mauro, Firstly let me say that I am OVER THE MOON with how quickly I received My Nodal Ninja 3 MkII. I actually received my item this morning after only placing my order last Thursday; and considering it is the Easter Break kudos must go to you guys for exceptional service and speedy delivery. I must also commend Fanotec for the build quality of this product, rarely do you see products these days that are as advertised, I can’t wait to start using my Ninja

424.) It was worth the wai... Thanks for the information....I did catch a nice article in one of the UK photo magazines that you contributed to. It was one that I pick up at our local Borders stores from time to time. I was flipping through it at the store and saw that it had an article on Panoramas, so I purchased it. When I got home and I started to read the article. Your name just popped out. You were so helpful when I made the purchase. So thanks again!
Paul K. USA
423.) Hi Bill, received the Nodal Ninja today. First impressions...Really light, Really compact, Very very well made and did I mention really really really light.Well done, the Nodal Ninja looks and performs far better than expected and well worth the price. kind regards
Peter O Ireland
422.) Small complaint. I got my 5/16 pano head here in Germany and it is a well built item. I did however have to pay the $85 in taxes- ouch!. On top of that I had to pay $45 for shipping becuase you only allow me to select Express for Germany. So my pano head cost $130 more than the website price. If I would have known that before hand I would have shopped around here for the items. People buying from here Germany beware of the custom tax. Other than that I am very happy for the pano head. regards

421.) Nick, The NN5 with RD16 is a dream come true. I can't believe I have been using this (deleted) for the last 2 years. It's like comparing a Hummer to a Lexus. It's easy to tell you take great pride in quality. What really surprises me as well is your attention to others. I see posts in the forums where you take the time to not only answer and help people but you listen to their suggestions for product improvement. You have a manufacturer that listens, products that are precision built while keeping it within financial reach, and a never ending barrage of people bragging about support throughout the net. This is the mark of a real company. I wish Fanotec the best of success. Thank you

420.) Mauro, Thank you for taking the time to go above and beyond in helping me with my issues. As expected it was an easy fix and I feel stupid for even asking. Cheers

419.) Thank you Bill Bailey and Ron in shipping for a VERY generous amount of your time with a noob on heads, software, workflow, etc. The questions have only just begun!! Thanks a lot guys, i really appreciate it. Best regards, Dave
Gents: I wanted to take a sec and thank both of you for your generous amounts of time discussing not only the NN5 but pano photgraphy in general, workflow, software, etc. I really appreciate it. When buying a product, I believe you not only have to look at the product itself but at the people behind the product. At the end of the day after talking to both of you, the decision was real easy to purchase a Nodal Ninja product. I look forward to recieving the head shooting my first panorama later this week. Finally - Rob, I called you Ron on the website order form yesterday. My apologizes. Best regards,

417.) Hi Mauro, how are you? The shipment arrived perfectly already 2 days ago. I just came back from an assignment and got it in my hands. I have just downloader the manual and started reading some FAQS. For the time being everything went perfect. Thank you very much. Excellent job and A+ communication. Regards,

409.) Hi I have been a nodal ninja user for close to two years now and absolutely love it. I have been using a Nodal Ninja for 2 years now and i absolutely swear by it. My tutor allowed me to borrow his many years ago and I instantly fell in love with it. I still can't get over how cheap and easy to use it is. Also the customer service it brilliant being in the UK i actually purchased mine through red door VR but before i did i got in contact with this site asking them questions about the Ninja and I always received a swift response that was more than sufficient for answering all my questions.

408.) To Mr Bill Bailey,Have read your fine article on panoramas in the British magazine "Digital Photographer" (issue 76) and your answer to a reader's letter (issue 78), I would like to purchase a Nodal Ninja for use with a Nikon D300 camera and to take advantage of your kind offer.

407.) Hi Bill, I heard a lot of good things about you guys, but in reality it is even better.... :-) ...so I decided to buy a panohead and (of course) I chose a NN5, which I received yesterday. And my first experiences with the NN5 are very positive. It is sturdy and pleasant to handle.

406.) Mauro, I recieved the package just a minute ago. I understand why you were "Voted #1 in customer support for 2008". Where can I vote for "best customer support 2009"? Thank you!
405.) Under 4 days to get to New Zealand? Unbelievable, considering USPS says 1-2 weeks. It's a beautifully made product, and indistinguishable from new, even though second-hand. Thank you so much.

404.) I just received my NN 3MkII and got it all set up. I took a multi-row mosaic as a test and loaded it into PTgui. After it was done stitching the 67mp equivalent file I loaded into PSCS3. I was so pleased that there was not one stitching problem due to parallax. I have not been this excited about photography in years! I can't wait to take my new toy out and use it! It really works great. Thanks for all the help getting me set up and everything. I have recommended NN to two other photographers just today. Thanks for everything.

403.) Dear nodalninja, I just want to know that I was deeply impressed with your service. I have been researching this technology for many years and when I got into digital I start searching the net. You answered my questions on my own forums! Very impressed. I am excited to see the head. Thanks!
402.) Hi Rob, I wanted to let you know that I have received the order. I also noticed that you have included the quick-release plate for free. Please extend my gratitude to everyone at your company for this generous offering. It was a sincere pleasure doing business with you.
