1167 Hi, a long satisfied customer...in case you were interested, I used the NN5 with EZ leveler some time ago for a campaign we did for bridgestone capturing 3x 660Gpx images with a Canon 5DS and 35mm L2...Kind regards, Jef
1166 I experienced some problems placing the order with a thai address online and Thuy was of great support and very professional on placing the order for me. Marco C. Thailand
1165 5 Stars - EZ-Lever-II The easiest way to have a perfect level. With it is simple and fast to get a perfect level in all directions, I removed the ball head of my tripod and attached it directly. It does not come with a level so I use, the one that come with the Nodal Ninja.
1164 5 Stars - EZ-Lever-II Awesome device! This is exactly what I need to start my new job doing virtual tours. This makes shooting more precise.
1163 5 Stars - EZ-Lever-II The leveler is nice and was arrived fast.
1162 5 Stars - EZ-Lever-II I love it! It works well with my Canon Rebel Lxi, but it shows in my Canon 70D!! However using the older camera I'm now able to create Google virtual tours without showing any parts of my camera gadgets (tripods or parts of camera control)
1161 4 Stars - EZ-Lever-II. This item could be the simplest thing on earth but at the end of the day it will make your life easier. Instead of adjusting the tripod all you need to do is quickly adjust the handles and you will have your camera leveled to a degree of perfection. I strongly recomend this product from nodal ninja. Price is reasonable and it is build in rough materials that will last forever.
1160 5 stars - NN3 MKII Alles perfekt. Alles schnell und unkompliziert. Evgenij C.
1159 5 stars - NN3 MKII Bin Hobbyfotografien und Einsteiger in die Panoramafotografie und wollte nicht gleich Hunderte ausgeben. Dieser Kopf ist ein sehr gute Alternative. Leichtes Gepäck, lässt sich gut bedienen und für mich ist das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis mehr als ok. Ich kann es nur empfehlen. Karen
1158 5 stars - NN3 MKII Sehr leichtes Nodal-Stativ mit praktischem Transport-Case. Erlaubt zuverlässiges, schnelles Arbeiten bei der Panorama-Fotografie. Ich bin sehr zufrieden. Olaf F.
1157 M1 Series with RD16-II - Using your head I become a real fan of it, because i think it is more light weight and it has an easy and fast set up than the competitors products. And after all this time of use and caring it always with me all around the world it was still looking and working great. It is the ideal head for me who travel much and was fitting so well on my equipment bag. Marco C.
1156 Meets expectations/Design/Functionality - 5 stars. I bought this after spending a couple of weeks trawling the internet for the best pano head I could afford, and all the time I kept coming back to the NN3. Very well made (I appreciate good engineering) and certainly strong enough for my camera, a Canon 5Dmiii. Really only 2 criticisms I have are firstly, a note or link in the box to set up/tutorial videos, as this was my first nodel point head would be useful, as I had to look up how to set it up for my camera/lens combination, and that took a while. Second is that if the arms were 1" longer, the range of cameras that would fit would be much greater, as the next size up for heavier, bulkier camera/lens setups is twice the price, putting it well out of my reach, so I have to put up with not taking the zenith point for a true 360pano. There is I note a T plate extension I can purchase, but I need to work out if the added dimension would be enough, so the above point is me being picky. Apart from that, I would recommend to anyone. Duncan
1155 Meets expectations/Design/Functionality - 5 stars.Does the job with an OMD em5+tripod+samyang 7.5mm. 6 pictures and I get a HD 360 image. Great tool...  Charles
1154 Hey Bill while you have heaps of prooducts you've been very helpful in assisting me to make the right choice. I received the NN6 last week and even though you told there was no documentation on it you really don't need it. You do have some videos that helped but anyone familiar with basic panoramic heads will be able to mount and go. Chuck S. Portland OR.
1153 Bill, I have used several of your products in these pieces, especially nodal heads.  Would be happy to provide a testimonial. 
1152 Rob, My shipment just arrived... as an engineer I love the design, fit/finish, robustness and packaging of the  products.  As a photographer I’ve made over 600 panoramas using Nodal Ninja. Look forward to making pole panoramas, John
1151 5 stars - M1 Series with RD16-II - 
1150 5 stars - Nodal Ninja R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Clamp Style Panoramic Tripod Head - Excellent product ByA.H. - After trying out 2 other pano heads, this one is the most convenient and produces flawless results. Everything seems to be made under very tight tolerances so it feels SOLID. I think the price is good for the quality. Quick to set up, easy to use.
1149 5 stars - Nodal Ninja R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Clamp Style Panoramic Tripod Head - The company that makes this is so helpful. ByA. Schoenfeld - Verified Purchase - I ordered the nikon version and not the Canon version. My mistake. Nodal Ninja swapped out the parts at no cost to me. I use this for panoramas and it works perfectly
1148 4 stars - M1 Series with RD16-II - Ultimate is an accurate description! ByR. L. Stolz. This head is beautifully made and very well thought out. I shoot panos and mosaics fairly often and this head makes the process as easy as it can be. The machining is truly superb and it will certainly not a limiting factor for any photo but it's quite expensive. It is possible to put together a similar rig for much less money, using an assortment of rails and rotators from companies like Desmond, SunwayFoto and others, but the convenience of this design is superior. Although it may be overkill for single row panos, if you intend to shoot mosaics often this head will simplify the process compared to less comprehensive options. The horizontal rotator (RD-16) can be easily calibrated to a zero mark to start and end rows. Stacking rows for mosaics is also easy. I sometimes shoot 7 or 8 images per row in a 4 row mosaic, resulting in 32 or more images. Once the head (takes very little time) and camera (might take a bit more time) are set up, there is very little thought involved in shooting a pano or mosaic. The click stops and precision scales make it easy to shoot 32 or more images very quickly. Resulting in huge stitched images with vast numbers of pixels, this method works well for very large prints (wall size). Prints smaller then 24x36" may not benefit much and the hassle may outweigh the benefit. If you are shooting with very long lenses you may want to look into other options from Nodal Ninja but for typical focal lengths the RD-16 is a great option. If you are new to multi-shot images get ready for considerable work pre and post processing but the resulting images can be truly stunning. This is not the kind of rig you'll want to hike with for miles! For backcountry work I usually pare things down to a simple rotator and rail, which is much lighter.
1147 5 stars - M1 Series with RD16-II - the best panoramic head that you can currently buy ByThomas O'Brien - Verified Purchase - the best panoramic head that you can currently buy. I have been using this professionally for the last few years and there is nothing on the market that even comes close to ease of use. the click stops on the rotator are so great when shooting in low light or at night. You never need to frame the shot through the viewfinder,

1143 5 stars - EZ-Leveler-II - The easiest way to have a perfect level. With it is simple and fast to get a perfect level in all directions, I removed the ball head of my tripod and attached it directly. It does not come with a level so I use, the one that come with the Nodal Ninja.
1142 5 stars - EZ-Leveler-II - Love the Leveler :) ByChantil Brown - Verified Purchase - Awesome device! This is exactly what I need to start my new job doing virtual tours. This makes shooting more precise.
1141 5 stars - EZ-Leveler-II - Five Stars ByMurilo T Melloon - Verified Purchase - The leveler is nice and was arrived fast.
1140 4 stars - EZ-Leveler-II - This item could be the simplest thing on earth but at the end of the day it will make your life easier.

1139 5 stars - EZ-Leveler-II - I love it! BySamir Al-Busaidy - Verified Purchase - I love it! I t works well with my Canon Rebel Lxi, but it shows in my Canon 70D!! However using the older camera I'm now able to create Google virtual tours without showing any parts of my camera gadgets (tripods or parts of camera control)
1138 5 stars - EZ-Leveler-II - Does its job - DNelon Verified Purchase - Works great. Does exactly as described. Is made of high quality materials that should last many years
1137 5 stars - By RJ Rockwell - Was on time and met my specifications.
1136 5 stars - NN3 MKII -  Perfect Panoramas! This thing has taken me to the next level in taking great panos! Stitching software easily recognizes anchor points as paralaxing issues are eliminated, thus saving me hours upon hours of work. Expensive as far as 'gadgets' go, but worth its weight in gold.
1135 4 stars - Amazing product for small size lenses - ByJoe M. - Verified Purchase - I have a Canon 7D with an 8mm fisheye lens, and the nodal ninja is amazing for this type of body and lens and for spherical 360 x 180. It's strong and steady and it does what it's supposed to. I have faced some issues when taking "up" shots with a bigger lens like 10.20mm or 24.70mm. These lenses are too big for this product. ADMIN NOTE: NN3 is recommended for lenses up to 50mm
1134 4 stars - Beautifully Machined - Verified Purchase - This is a very nicely made product with excellent support from the manufacturer that performs its intended function perfectly as long as your camera is not too big. A Panasonic GH2 with Olympus 75mm lens fits with a little room to spare. My only complaint is the documentation. It comes with several bags of extra parts and only a printed brochure - no assembly instructions or operating instructions. After some searching I was able to locate these on their web site, but the instructions are not very detailed. Eventually it all makes sense, but don't expect to start using it right out of the box. If you want to use this with Arca-Swiss Q/R plates, you will have to purchase a lever-operated clamp from some other manufacturer as the clamp they sell is operated by a thumb screw that interferes with the operation of the device. In fairness they warned me it was not recommended and offered to let me return it if it didn't work.
1133 5 stars - Nodal Ninja 3 MKII starter package - By Daniel S.  -  Professional - I'm pleased with the product and the support that I received in ordering it as well as the online instructional support from Nodal Ninja.
1132 4 stars - Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotator Handle - What you expect, and convenient to use By Nick VERIFIED BUYER The Nodal Ninja Rotator handle is a convenience.
1131 5 stars - Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotator Handle - Better than grabbing the camera to turn for 360's but it... By Mr. 360 VERIFIED BUYER I like using it to turn the camera with out touching the camera but it should have come with the Nodal Ninja Ultimate Rotator. I love my ultimate rotator, the quality is amazing. This should have come with the kit even if it would cost 10 bucks more. I think everyone with a rotator will enjoy this better than grabbing the camera. That's my only complaint is it should have been part of the kit but either way...it's worth the 10 bucks! Nodal Ninja makes great equipment for 360's.
1130 4 stars - Nodal Ninja Advanced Rotator Handle - Very necessary By Len VERIFIED BUYER It may just be me, but I found this handle to be a very necessary addition to the Ninja. Although I could easily rotate the rig using the camera itself, it just doesn't feel like the right thing to do.
1129 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - On the Level ...Really By RVDigitalBoy VERIFIED BUYER I bought the EZ Leveler II in order to shoot level panoramas with my new Nodal Ninja M1L panorama head. It works as advertised. I attach the EZ Leveler II to my sturdy Manfroto tripod. To the EZ I attach the M1L. Using the M1l's bubble level I make adjustments to my tripod's ball head. Then I fine tune the level with the EZ until the bubble is centered. That's all there is to it.
1128 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - A must when it comes to leveling! By Rodasaurusrex VERIFIED BUYER I use the EZ Leveler with my Nodal Ninja panoramic head... absolutely perfect when it comes to ease of use and great results! I highly recommend!
1127 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Glad I bought this very helpful :) By Don VERIFIED BUYER Make leveling the Pano head EASY!  A must have.
1126 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Efficient and easy to use By xact VERIFIED BUYER I got this to replace a ball head that I was using to do panoramic shots. I use it in conjunction with a Nodal Ninja R10. I like that it has such a low profile and allows me to make the fine tune adjustments I need to get the camera level. I put a Manfrotto RC2 quick release adapter on so I can quickly transition from panos to POIs using the same tripod.
1125 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Excellent leveler, affordably priced By dmytrowp VERIFIED BUYER I am Google Photographer and I work for a Google Agency that specializes in virtual tours. This leveler is used for the panos (panoramic 360 images). It is a workhorse and a part that is vital to creating the panoramic images.Everything is excellent, the build quality is top notch. We've had a few other copies of this leveler for a few years and the only thing is that the adjustment knobs started to squeak a bit during adjusting, but a little wd-40 on the threads and the leveler was as good as new.

1123 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - EZ is the the word! By Intrepid Tre'   The EZ Leveler is the key to speedy leveling and accurate bubble control for shooting panos. Was this review helpful to you?
1122 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Very pleased By Allison   This EZ leveler works great and saves me a lot of time! Wish I had ordered sooner!
1121 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Perferct for precise leveling By John Wong VERIFIED BUYER Well crafted and easy to handle, this is just what I needed for leveling my camera shooting interiors. I use a tilt shift lens for a lot of my shooting and this is much more precise and quicker getting to level than a 3 way or ball head. Using the head to adjust was always a fidgity trial and error, then re-adjust. When you are on location and the client is watching, it looks like you don't know what you are doing. That's the worst impression you can give them.
Now, I get close with the head and it's a quick adjust of the knobs to level. The knobs feel substantial to my hands and can be adjusted in large or small incremental turns. They dial smoothly and don't bind. Attaching to the tripod and head is straightforward and easy. Solid, sturdy connections and no sloppiness. Highly recommended!!
1120 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - this produc make my work faster and easier By Monica VERIFIED BUYER I used this product to level the tripod and take pictures for the tour 360 degrees to google street view tour.
1119 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - Light and useful By Paul VERIFIED BUYER I use this leveler as light weight option to level a NEX-6. It works fine and is just what I needed for cylinfric panorama pics. I already owned a light Novoflex rotator: the combo is what I need for my backpack. I din't tried larger DSLR eith this combo.
1118 5 stars - Nodal Ninja EZ-Leveler-II - A Great Leveling Plate By John VERIFIED BUYER A really nice piece of gear. Works like a dream. This was purchased after trying to use the Manfroto 338 leveling base which is a poorly assembled unit and a waste of money.
1117 5 stars - NN Reversible Brass Detent Rings for NN3 MkII Panoramic Head - Great Customer Service By Mim VERIFIED BUYER I haven't had a chance to actually use the rings. I'm sure they will do the trick. I just wanted to mention that I purchased the nodal ninja starter kit and it was missing the rings. (I'm not sure how many were supposed to be in the kit) Anyway, I contacted customer service of the issue and they promptly sent me a set of seven no charge. I was pleased. ADMIN NOTE: We include 2 rings with each kit (15/0 + 45/60)
1116 5 stars - NN RD16-II Rotator - High quality material By Simon VERIFIED BUYER High quality
1115 5 stars - NN RD16-II Rotator - Compression screw is so small but it is working well By necati ufuk   rotator is good desing and working well but I tried to show 2 pictures how it looks like on different 2 leveler. Compression screw is so small an is close to base, I think that it is not big deal because when you already use rotator, I have not experiance about rotator but my opinion you will not to need to see chart of angle degree when you work it
1114 5 stars - NN RD16-II Rotator - Worth the price By Gerald VERIFIED BUYER Plan on using for all of my panos. The preset stops are a godsend. Especially in low or no light.
1113 5 stars - NN M2 NO Rotator - Just Right For My Needs By rlstoz VERIFIED BUYER The Ultimate M2 is a beautifully crafted piece of equipment and it's a joy to use. After shooting more than 100 panos and mosaics with this rig, under a variety of conditions, I am confident this is the right tool for my needs. Those needs mostly include shooting mosaics, using my best mid focal length lenses, to produce hi-res images suitable for large prints. The M2 makes that about as easy as possible. I bought the head without the RD8-II rotator because I wanted to use the RD16-II rotator instead. The RD16-II is better suited to the focal lengths I use. Shooting very long focal lengths to produce ultra hi-res images is not something I do often. I mostly use this rig for shooting mosaics using lenses in the 24mm to 100mm (EFL) range. These mosaics range from 4 shots up to 72 shots resulting in wide to ultra-wide images after stitching. Most of them stitch without problems in the most recent version of Lightroom - no need for dedicated pano software. This rig requires a solid tripod and it's quite heavy so it is not very portable (I use a much smaller pano head and tripod for the backcountry) but, once set up, it makes panos and mosaics easy to shoot. I chose the M2 specifically because it is very precise and, coupled with the rotator, allows me to shoot multi-shot images with a minimum of effort. Every adjustment on the M2 is precise and very solid. It is manufactured to extremely high standards. It is more than adequate in every way. If you are new to multi-shot panos and mosaics consider that to really take advantage of this rig you will need to make quite detailed setup notes specific to your equipment and situation. This takes more than a little time. You will need to note at least three positions on the scales of the M2 for each camera/lens combination. For zooms lenses you may want more details. If you are not willing to take the time to make and use accurate setup notes you will not gain much/any benefit from this head!
1112 5 stars - NN RD5 Rotator - Don't be surprised by the small package! By Justin VERIFIED BUYER This is a solid rotator base! It's easy to set up and start using quickly. A cool feature that wasn't mentioned in the product page, the indint resistence is adjustable with a hex key that's included. I can see this feature being useful with cameras of varying weight. I put it pretty loose and it works perfect with my 6D. I would recomend this product.
1111 4 stars - R-D3L 6-8-30 Rotator with Built-In EZ-Leveler-MKII - Nodal Ninja Rotator MKII By Erv VERIFIED BUYER Very easy to install, setup for desired shots and the level is very accurate.
1110 4 stars - NN R1 - Great for a Fisheye Lens Only By Rich Lewis VERIFIED BUYER We are shooting more and more 360x180 panoramas and this is an easy to set up and use panorama head for fisheye lenses. Get the right ring mount for the lens you are using and your panorama set up is a easy as leveling the tripod and attaching the camera and lens.
1109 5 stars - NN M2 w/ RD8-II Rotator - Best design at this time By Brock   I have worked with the Really Right Stuff panorama gear and the Nodal Ninja provides more functionality and at a lower total cost. In particular the ability to set the degrees of rotation and have a click mechanism is what sets it apart. I do not need to try to find 2.5 degree increments on a scale but can instead rely on the click to tell me when to take the next shot. This saves a lot of time and makes it easier to shoot in low light settings as well. The start and end tabs of the rotators also make it easy to have multi-row shots start and end at the same place. This is a well thought out piece of equipment by people who actually shoot panoramics. Lots of refinements that are not found on other pano setups that are in this price range. A small thing perhaps but I like that they provide a very good storage case for all the parts. With Really Right Stuff I had to buy a third part neoprene case that was expensive and not all that well designed for actual use in the field.
1108 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Quality. Well made Panoramic gear By Anthonyt VERIFIED BUYER Quality made panoramic gear. Easily assembled and easy to use. Comes in a custom carrying case. I have been very impressed with this setup and would recommend it to anyone interested in taking serious panoramas.
1107 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Best Panoramic Kit Available!! By Mike   I use this with the Nikon D800E and the Nikon 14-24mm F2.8 G lens. I also have the MB-D12 Battery Grip. This is one of Nodal Ninja's top of the line Pano kits and is a must if you are shooting with large lens. The kit does come with a lot of spare parts, but I consider this a good thing. If you follow the guides on Nodal Ninja's website it is pretty straight forward to setup. You can also call or email them. They are very helpful if you get stuck. For this setup I needed the following to shoot landscape with my rig and get a full 360.
1106 5 stars - I love the M1-L with RD16 II By Cecil VERIFIED BUYER I got this product about a week ago and wow! Very well made, easy to use, easy to set up in the field, simple operation and excellent results. My panorama stitching is seamless. Really excellent designed product for the serious panoram pro!
1105 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - awesome By bodywise VERIFIED BUYER This is an awesome addition. Finally, you can shoot panos in rows with any lens. The click stops are poorly explained in the "documentation" but once figured out, is a snap. Click, click, click. I easily produced a vertical set pano 10 across in 3 rows. Using AutoPan (not PS), I produced a flawless pano with a 70 mm lens thus reducing barrel and lens distortion. Highly recommended. Highly crafted.Just beware that the "documentation" is non-existant. A sad commementary on a developing trend. "Just look it up." If you dig deep enough there are some good references.
1104 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Top Notch By Museum Photographer VERIFIED BUYER This thing is solid. if you're using a DSLR to create panos then you need a tripod head that won't budge unless you want it to. With the Nodal Ninja you're paying for that quality engineering. The Swiss Arca system is simple and effective and you will find an assortment of accessories for your needs.I am using the Nodal Ninja for creating 360 panoramas to be used in virtual tours. Put it on a sturdy heavy tripod and you will get the precision required to minimize stitching errors and correction time. Don't forget to order an adapter that fits your specific camera.It comes in a nice quality case, doesn't fit perfectly inside but it looks & feels good!
1103 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Nice and stable By twofun VERIFIED BUYER nice and stable product.
you can take panorama without any problem.
1102 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Very fine piece of equipment By photoed VERIFIED BUYER I was trying to get a wide view of home interiors with very little distortion. I have a Nikon 14-24mm lens that gives me more than an enough coverage but my clients complain about the distortion. So I bought this panoramic head hoping by stitching several images together so I could get a photo with very little distortion. I tried it every which way I could think of. It just didn't work out. I gave it 5 stars because its an incredible piece of equptment, very precise. If you get this you must get the Nodal Ninja Ez-Leveler-Ii it will save you tons of time.
1101 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Great piece great price. By Ben VERIFIED BUYER I bought a cheaper panoramic head from competitor. I returned it because of build. I spent the extra coinage to purchase this from b&h. I'm glad I did. The build quality is amazing! I especially like the configuration option on the rotator piece. T this world perfect for my Nikon D810. I would highly recommend you buy this.
1100 5 stars - NN M1L w/RD16-II - Finely crafted and versatile - a truly excellent head By R.L.   This head's workmanship is about as good as it gets but, more importantly, it was designed to facilitate an efficient workflow for what is often a complicated process. There are less expensive options for similar heads, some which are quite well made, but this head's attention to operational detail sets it apart. It was clearly designed to actually shoot multi-shot images, rather than just sitting impressively atop a tripod. There are more expensive heads that are very well made but lack the practical functionality of this one.  Short of a view camera, this head will hold about any camera you choose, but you'll need a solid tripod. Although it is possible to level the rotator with a ball head, its very awkward, especially with a camera mounted, so you'll want to add a leveling base (designs with three screws, like the Nodal Ninja one, make the process easier).  The adjustable scales, with start and stop markers, allow precise setup and once everything is adjusted the actually process of shooting the photos is a no-brainer. I have used other heads where it's easy to lose track of where, in a multi-row sequence, you are. When you are shooting 3 or more rows, of 6 or more images each, it gets confusing, especially if each image is bracketed for HDR. This head all but eliminates that confusion.  The RD-16 II rotator works very well for me, as I do not shoot many panos with very long lenses, and by adding an inexpensive dual ARCA clamp to the top rail you can go as wide as you like, including fisheye. After shooting hundreds of panos and mosaics I have found only two negatives with this head. First, it's expensive. Second, it's quite heavy. I don't see any way to avoid either. The weight of this head, plus the heavy tripod required to support it, precludes my carrying it on long hikes but I am willing to lug it a mile or two because it works so well.  You will need to spend some time documenting setup positions for your specific body/lens combinations (I suggest carrying setup charts whenever you use this head) but once that's done setup is fast, easy and precise. If you are new to multi-shot images you'll need to invest considerable time in learning the various techniques and sadly, there is no single source that I know about for this.  Reviewers often complain that pano heads don't include simple instructions (or any for that matter) for use. That's because use is NOT simple! If you are not mechanically inclined this stuff may be quite frustrating. It's not brain surgery but it requires specialized knowledge. In return, you can make high resolution images, independent of sensor and lens constraints, that can be printed huge.
1099 2 stars - NN3 NKII - Nodal Ninja MK3 II By j05h VERIFIED BUYER I used this head to shoot panoramas. It's inexpensive but takes tideous amount of work to keep it level throughout the whole range (360). ADMIN NOTE: Just tighten lower rotator, level first shoot and you're good to go for the sequence of shots.
1098 4 stars - Panoramic photos:reality and easy to use By JR VERIFIED BUYER Rapid and easy to use to create very good panoramic photos.
1097 5 stars - NN3 MKII - It works as advertised By Stephen.s1 VERIFIED BUYER It makes panoramas easy to do. No more guessing. This package has everything needed to attach your camera and make successful panoramic images.
1096 5 stars - Nodal Ninja 3 a Superb Kit By Troy VERIFIED BUYER What a superb kit. I use the NN3 MKII with an old Sigma DP1s (circa 5 mpix) to stitch together moderate to ultra-wide fields and increase megapixel depth for higher resolution. I typically end up with 15 to 30 megapixel stitches sorted out in a minute or two with the NN3 and DP1 (and this after ruthless cropping later). The notch settings on the pano guide allow me to preset the next stitch while the (slow) camera loads the RAW image to memory without me looking through the LCD. 10 to 30 frame stitches (and I'm sure more but I don't need larger) are really fast and easy, which is helpful if you're doing landscapes with quickly moving clouds. The build quality of the NN3 is flawless, break down and set up quick and easy. It's super light and a great match for the tiny DP1, a Hakuba carbon tripod, and a small Joby ball head. I leave the verticle assembly attached to the camera and pack it in my tiny camera bag. I leave the horizontal assembly on the tripod and ball head and pack the lot in the tripod bag. In practice, I haven't even noticed the weight difference. I'm totally happy.
1095 5 stars - NN3 MKII - I'm convinced this is a critical tool. By Mlopez1007 VERIFIED BUYER I've been doing panoramic photography for a short time, and I've been reluctant to plunk down a small chunk of money for a device like this, instead reverting to alternative ideas to make pans, i.e. fisheye lens adapters and lens rings. After my last road trip, and a few photographic epiphanies along that way, I decided to take the plunge and pick up this item. It's turned into a great investment. Using this device along with a simple point-and-shoot camera has taught me a ton more about shooting angles, no-parallax points, and just photography in general. It's also helped me understand better my camera's operational abilities and limitations. Do yourself a favor. If you are an aspiring panographer or just a typical spherical photography hack like me, plunk down the $[$]for this item, and also pick up a sturdy, headless tripod along for the ride. They'll both be worth the investment.
1094 5 stars - NN3 MKII - Outstanding Product By Crosbydove   I have found nothing but good things to say about this product. Strong build with easy moving parts and a sharp design. I have photographed many panos with this. Stitching is perfect and very accurate with the degrees. Happy customer.
1093 5 stars - NN3 MKII - Straight Shootin' By Mark VERIFIED BUYER You don't need those other high-dollar fancy pano-tools. This bad boy is a plug and play adventure. Of course, you will need basic knowledge of how to find the nodal point. All in all, you will be pleased. One thing to consider: remember there is a bit of a limitation with lens size here. Think shorter/stocky lenses. Although I believe an extender can be added to help with this problem (extra accessory). Generally, you will not have a problem.
1092 4 stars - NN3 MKII - Great Item By Boats VERIFIED BUYER We currently have 40 to 50 cameras setup with the NN3 to take 360 degree photos.  Pro: NN3 make it very easy to take the 6 pictures we need quickly and move on to the next location. Con: None that I can think of.
1091 5 stars - NN3 MKII - Sturdy By Jon   Showed up quickly after ordering. It's sturdy and easy to use.
1090 5 stars - NN3 MKII - Worked Fine First Time By DragonTom VERIFIED BUYER I've used manual and several other pano products and never been able to get a good 360x180 pan of my living room. Tried the NN3 right out of the box and the pano software I use had absolutely no problems producing a good 360x180 pan with no editing (other than the tripod nadir). I'm sold. Now off the the churches and other places I've promised a pano to.
1089 5 stars - NN3 MKII - No frills, gets the job done By Bryce   Easy to install and use. Definitely a great starting piece.
1088 5 stars - NN3 MKII - No problems By Gwen   Quick delivery and exactly what I needed!
1087 5 stars - Travel Pole - Fantastic portability and performance By Koh   This is by far the most versatile monopod I've owned. My favorite use for it is faking drone shots with a small remote-controlled 3 axis gimbal stabiliser (Zhiyun Rider M) attached to the top. The set-up is also an 8 foot jib that fits easily inside any normal backpack.
1086 Rob, thank you so much!  You guys make a great product and I appreciate your service. - Bradley. 9/13/17
1085 4 stars - Nodal Ninja N4-PKG - Good product. About Me Pro Photographer. Verified Buyer. Did a little research when getting into 360 panorama photography and this was a well-recommended, affordable solution. Easy to use, well built and fairly compact, this device is an excellent value. Our business has already paid it off with our first 360 real estate shoot. - By Video Joe from Vail, CO
1084 5 stars - Nodal Ninja N4-PKG - Amazing. About Me Photography Student. Verified Buyer. feels good, works amazing, compact, and easy to adjust for your camera. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Supermario from San Francisco
1083 Nodal Ninja N4-PKG - Good value for money. About Me Photo Enthusiast. Verified Buyer. This is an easy to use, well thought out panoramic head. I mostly take 3-4 shot stitches in portrait orientation, and I don't have a complaint. As another reviewer said, those with very demanding needs might want something more elaborate, and perhaps mechanized, but this is a solid product that won't get in your way. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Photomatrix_1 from Vermont
1082 4 stars - Nodal Ninja N4-PKG - About Me Pro Photographer. It does what it promises. Verified Buyer. Are there better panorama devices? Absolutely, but they cost a lot more. At this price point (especially if you want to minimize parallax) there is no competition. I improved it a bit with an arca-style clamp that I had sitting around. If you had to make hundreds of stitched photographs on short notice, it makes sense to spend the extra money on the more expensive model or perhaps the motorized version but for the occasional pano or Brenizer, this is light, travels well, and works as promised. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Ben from New York
1081 5 stars - Nodal Ninja N4-PKG - Nice budget panoramic head. About Me Photo Enthusiast. Verified Buyer. I've used this head to take 360x180 full spherical panoramas and some partial spherical panoramas with my 5D Mark III. It's so much faster and easier to get all the needed shots for a large panorama! It's worked great with a variety of lenses. I've successfully used it from 24 up to 100mm focal lengths on full-frame. It's lighter and cheaper than some of the alternatives, but still solidly built and easy to use. It comes with some extra parts and a nice carrying case. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Jeff from Seattle, WA
1080 5 stars - Nodal Ninja N4-PKG -  Great Product for Panos. About Me Photo Enthusiast. Verified Buyer. I use this to make single row panoramas with my Olympus e5 DSLR and it works great. No more parallax problems! Well constructed and easy to use, you can even buy alternate plates to accommodate an area style plate from Nodal Ninja's website. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Mike from Long Island
1079 5 stars - Nodal Ninja M1-L-RD16-II - awesome. About Me Semi-pro Photographer. Verified Buyer. This is an awesome addition. Finally, you can shoot panos in rows with any lens. The click stops are poorly explained in the "documentation" but once figured out, is a snap. Click, click, click. I easily produced a vertical set pano 10 across in 3 rows. Using AutoPan (not PS), I produced a flawless pano with a 70 mm lens thus reducing barrel and lens distortion. Highly recommended. Highly crafted.Just beware that the "documentation" is non-existant. A sad commementary on a developing trend. "Just look it up." If you dig deep enough there are some good references. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By bodywise from san jose, CA
1078 5 stars - I love the M1-L with RD16 II - About Me Photo Enthusiast. Verified Buyer. I got this product about a week ago and wow! Very well made, easy to use, easy to set up in the field, simple operation and excellent results. My panorama stitching is seamless. Really excellent designed product for the serious panoram pro! Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Cecil from Austin
1077 5 stars - Nodal Ninja M1-L-RD16-II - Best Panoramic Kit Available!! About Me Semi-pro Photographer. Verified Reviewer. I use this with the Nikon D800E and the Nikon 14-24mm F2.8 G lens. I also have the MB-D12 Battery Grip. This is one of Nodal Ninja's top of the line Pano kits and is a must if you are shooting with large lens. The kit does come with a lot of spare parts, but I consider this a good thing. If you follow the guides on Nodal Ninja's website it is pretty straight forward to setup. You can also call or email them. They are very helpful if you get stuck. For this setup I needed the following to shoot landscape with my rig and get a full 360.

1070 3 stars - Nodal Ninja R1/R10 Lens Ring for Canon EF 8-15mm f/4.0L Fisheye USM Lens - Not a Perfect Design But Works Great. About Me Pro Photographer. Verified Buyer. Whoever designed this concept of mounting the panorama head right to the lens did a great and not so great thing. The great thing is that the ring is specific to one lens so the nodal point is easily set. It also makes setting up a 360 panorama very easy. The down side is that the ring covers the AF/MF switch, Zoom Lock and Manual Focusing Scale. There is probably no better way to do this. If you leave this ring on the lens it increases the weight and makes it a little difficult to carry and store.  Here is a tip. They recommend using tape to hold the inner ring on to the lens. My experience is that this is totally not necessary. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Rich Lewis from New Jersey (NN note - this lens ring is now available with viewing window as requested above.)

1061 I have used the NN3 rig for about 8 years now and had one of my past rigs customized to fit my camera and lens combo with help from your team and it was the quickest and easiest process! You knew exactly what I needed and even sent some free parts that I didn't know I needed that helped my lens fit the NN3. (It was a Tokina 12-24 and thicker at the nodal point than most… it worked wonderfully and I was able to grab it and click it into my ball head with quick release plates, always set and ready to go perfectly lined up! That rig was unfortunately stolen and I have been using an older NN3 that a friend donated but it is not set up as efficiently so I miss it everyday!! Even the older NN3 works solid after 8000+ properties shot on it! super great products! - Garrett B. USA
1060 The simplicity and affordability of the R10 are some of the main drawing point for our photographers. Its hard to believe that you were able to make improvements on an already awesome product. - Google Inc.

1055 I really liking the NN4 may need to investing a leveling head and one of that advanced rotators at some point but for now I could not be happier with it at this point. - Brian D
1054 Thanks so much for the quick response, you guys have the BEST customer service in the business :) - Andrew J. CA 
1053 Absolutely amazing piece of equipment (5 Stars) Just like everything I've purchased from Nodal Ninja and Fanotec. This is an amazing tool. It allows me to get some truly unique angles, and being a stable platform I can shoot long into the evening when other elevated options have to pack it in as soon as the exposure times get longer. Thanks Bill and Nick for your attention to detail and uncompromising quality! I'm always visiting the site to see what you've come up with next. (Can't wait to get my hands on that Pole 3 Extension!!) - Posted by Bill H.
1052 Bill, Just received my order today with the ez leveler, Ultimate, etc. OMG! This head is a work of art. Solid, smooth, much, much, much better than the Manfrotto model! Thanks! - Jerry S.
1051 Bill Bailey is a gentleman, a trustful business man that will go to great lengths to meet his clients needs and fulfill their all their requests.

It is rare nowadays to find someone that you can talk to, make a verbal agreement and expect the person to fulfill it, Bill is such a person, if he tells you he is going to do something, he will, no matter what. Bill Bailey's company Nodal Ninja is second to none in the panoramic photography field regarding customer service, pre and post sales. I recommend Bill Bailey to everyone without any reservations.  - Carlos Chegado, Photographer, Panedia.com
1050 I wish everyone I have to buy equipment from was as knowledgeable and helpful as Bill.

It has truly been a pleasure doing business with his company.  - Stoney Vintson, Software Development
1037 It is my pleasure to recommend Nodal Ninja Panoramic tripod heads that are provided by Bill Bailey LLC. The Nodal Ninja product line is a professional product that I am glade to have purchased.

If you're looking for hardware for panoramic photography, this is where you need to look. Excellent. - Martin Hopkins, Software Support for Garden Gnome Software
1032 Bill is the most professional, most friendly and most helpful person I've ever worked with, in the world of 360° photography. All the discussions I had with him led me to more accurately and more efficiencies in my professional work. I particularly liked his humility, his sense of service, advice and helpfulness (something quite rare in the world of 360° photography to be noticed). And beyond this, its equipment range Nodal Ninja, provides a level of strength and quality that is unmatched by its competitors, both in terms of price and in terms of quality. - Gregory Panayotou, 360° VR Photographer & Multimedia WeB Developper, Greg Direct2Brain.net
1031 It is my pleasure to recommend Bill as a business relationship, and as a human being.  The Nodal Ninja products represent a top quality range of panorama related items that far exceed one's expectations, and on the service front, it will be hard - if not impossible - to find any other company that is equally dedicated to service their customers as well as the people over at Nodal Ninja do. Professional service, professional quality and very affordable prices. My satisfaction with their products and services is such, that I have a link to their website through my panorama software website, and also in the interface of the main two panorama related software packages my company provides (Flashificator and Pano Cocoon). "Customer satisfaction" is something one will truly understand after using Nodal Ninja products and "Customer Service" is an unknown term until you have experienced their services.  - Trausti Hraunfjord, Panoramic Services
1030 I recommend Bill and his company wholeheartedly. When I wrote a review 4 years back on Nodal Ninja's then top-product, Bill helped me from start to finish. And as I am not a professional panorama photographer, I needed his help on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, Bill answered all my silly questions as if they were the most important thing he had to do (and I'm sure he had plenty of other work waiting for him). In contrast, one of Bill's major competitors was too arrogant to even consider working with me on a review. As for the Nodal Ninja products; I can vouch for their quality of build, sturdiness and accuracy. I also don't know of any other company that communicates so intensely and continuously with its customers and then puts their views in reality if it's technically feasible.  - Erik Vlietinck, Freelance tech journalist/reviewer, information creator, online publisher
1029 Working with Bill is definitively an unique experience. I distribute since few years his products and it's day to day win/win relationship. Bill and his company are dedicated at tech support and assistance before and after sales, and fully committed on selling and developping products at best possible for customers. He takes great care to listen all customers/resellers feedback and personally handle them when needed. Bill is also someone very valuable for business advices and I own him a great reward for that for my own business.  - Vincèn PUJOL, Independent Computer Software and Photography Professional
1028 It is my pleasure to recommend Bill, The Nodal Ninja products represent a top quality. These Panorama heads are perfect in fact. Nodal Ninja have certainly put a lot of thought into this.

I have yet to hear a single complaint.  - Terry Montague, Partner at Regal 360 L.L.C.
1020 Very good heads and equipment for panoramas, even better service. I recommend to everyone. - Radek Piotrowski, Owner, ELBIT vr24.pl
1019 I have used a Nodal Ninja NN5 for the past 4 years. It has been a rock star for me all over the world. I have photographed 750,000 fans and countless panos without a hitch. This past weekend on a shoot in Las Vegas the upper rotator tension knob stripped and I had to improvise,(see photo). Contacted Bill Bailey over the weekend and talked to Rob at NN headquarters today. My trusty NN5 will be whole again by the end of this week. Great products and above & beyond service. Love these guys.- Greg V. USA
1018 Bill and the others are great guys, excellent service! - Robert F. USA
1017 5 Stars - Top Notch  -  M1L w/RD16-II review: This thing is solid. if you're using a DSLR to create panos then you need a tripod head that won't budge unless you want it to. With the Nodal Ninja you're paying for that quality engineering. The Swiss Arca system is simple and effective and you will find an assortment of accessories for your needs.I am using the Nodal Ninja for creating 360 panoramas to be used in virtual tours. Put it on a sturdy heavy tripod and you will get the precision required to minimize stitching errors and correction time. Don't forget to order an adapter that fits your specific camera.It comes in a nice quality case, doesn't fit perfectly inside but it looks & feels good! - Museum Photographer
1016 My Ninja is still going strong. He pops up unexpectedly in random places: sitting on the rear view mirror, in the fridge, in a coat pocket... NOBODY expects Ninja! - Keith Martin UK
1015 5 Stars/Ultimate M1-L With RD16 II Rotator:Nice and stable. nice and stable product. you can take panorama without any problem. - Comments by twofun
1014 Hi Anthony - I wanted to thank you most sincerely for going above and beyond in dealing with my EZ Leveller II issue. The replacement Leveller arrived last week, only a few days after I sent my old one off to you. This suggests you dealt with it pretty much as soon as it arrived on your doorstep - I appreciate the speedy service! I also wanted to acknowledge the fact that you were under no obligation to do so - so thanks again. The Nodal Ninja pano head, rotator and Leveller have served me flawlessly since I purchased them. I am very happy with the results I am getting (perfect stitching every time!) and recommend the Nodal Ninja system without reservation. The after sales service is icing on the cake! Cheers mate. - Richard F. Australia
1013 Hi Bill, I am a long time user of your panoramic gear - I helped co-found our company in 2007, and we use all Nodal Ninja equipment - we have dozens of of them.  -- Kevin H. Vermont
1012 Rob, thank you so much for your fantastic customer service! I appreciate you sending me a new leveler! - Libbie Martin
1011 I love my Nodal Ninja stuff and highly recommend them to all pano photographers I meet and teach. In fact I was gutted that I had thought South African Airways had lost my Travel Pole and a ton of other gear on my recent trip to Africa. But I was lucky and got it back and it was a very happy reunion! - John W. Perth Australia
1010 Just love the product line. Got so many Fanotec products. And with Vincèn Pujol I have a very good purveyor who leaves no questions unanswered. That too is very important to me! - Carsten R. Germany
1009 Just now you have available everything I can think to need for my purposes :) I like your style to run your business... :) - Timo N. Finland

835 M1-L: The best panoramic head that you can currently buy. I have been using this professionally for the last few years and there is nothing on the market that even comes close to ease of use. the click stops on the rotator are so great when shooting in low light or at night. You never need to frame the shot through the viewfinder, just rotate to the next click stop. - Tom B. USA
834 Great products, even better customer service. Thank you! - Alexander P.
833 5 out of 5 stars - Best affordable panoramic head on the market  - By Lincoln TOP 500 REVIEWER on September 21, 2008 - I am a professional virtual tour photographer. I have shot over 1,300 virtual tours. I have tried numerous panoramic heads, including Bogen, Kaiden, and custom fabricated models. The Nodal Ninja performs better than the Bogen and nearly identical to the $900 Kaiden. However, the Nodal Ninja is about 1/4 the size and weight, and breaks down small enough to fit into your pocket.

831 Nadir Adapter NN3/4/5 (F9125) - A must have accessories. This small accessory makes nadir point patching so easy and precise. I can now easily patch the nadir point precisely even with very complex nadir point (ex: textured carpet, tapes - Donovan L. USA
830 The NN4 with RD16-II - The NN4 is well made and simple to use. It just works! - Sky H. USA
829 Google R10 Pkg (F0001) - Great precise product and great customer service! I had a specific question about the Google Pano heads and they took the time to answer my questions and concerns. Really excellent customer service! - Larry C. USA
828 I just purchased my third VR Panoramic Head. My first was around 2006. The products are of excellent value and workmanship and continue to improve over time. As always a great experience shopping with Nodal Ninja! - Laddie Crisp
827 I have to say, I worked with my new Nodal Ninja 4 a LOT over the past weekend shooting a number of test photos (~300) of real estate interiors, and I'm impressed. Your equipment is really very well made. I do some higher-end real estate work commercially, both locally and in Manhattan, and also am working on spearheading a VR 360 tour with the Olympic Regional development Authority here in Lake Placid. It's a new addition to my work, but I'm excited about it. - Scott M. NY
826 4.0 out of 5 stars - Good solid hardware. - I have only had the NN3 for a couple of months and have taken around 25 panoramas. It will get a great deal more use next month. What I have found to date is that it easily supports the cameras and lenses with which I have used it. (Nikon D200/D7200 and Nikon 18>200 zoom and Samyang 16mm wide angle). All combinations are steady with no creep. In use, the NN is easily set up and leveled. Determining the correct postion for the particular body/lens combination to avoid parallax errors is not difficult. However, using several lens/body combinations does result in a lot of book keeping to record and return to the exact settings required for each combination. I haven't found a system that I am happy with as yet. To date I have not made any multirow panos, only camera vertically oriented, single rows. (the computer I take with me to the field is pretty lame, so the time to align and stitch multirows tends to get out of hand) One benefit to the precision of the NN is that the process of finding control points and stitching is much faster with the more exact angles and overlaps; at least as compared to hand-held series.
825 Caveats. You really do need a steady tripod. The NN is solidly constructed, but it is still a series of cantilevers with a significant weight (the camera) at the end. Particularly for nightime long exposures, I find myself shortening the tripod legs and sitting on a stool behind the tripod. A stone bag or other tripod steading device helps as well. - Central Texas USA
824 5.0 out of 5 stars - It works for me. - I'm not sure why it took me so long to discover this excellent tool. I think it was because I was put off by very high priced versions of the same basic tool. With an a6000 size camera or Sigma Quattro, the default detents work well and after only a little bit of playing around I got it. I've put together excellent panoramic stitches without much effort. This tool makes that process so so so so much easier. It could be a bit thinner, a bit lighter, but for all factors considered, this thing just works. I think it would hold a small SLR also.  update, works just fine with a D7200 and up to a 60mm macro lens (pretty heavy). - Dennis L.
823 5.0 out of 5 stars - I was able to make perfect 360 deg panoramas with this adapter.  Worked exactly as advertised. I was able to make perfect 360 deg panoramas with this adapter. Its well built and the design is will thought out. - By mshoopon USA
822 5.0 out of 5 stars - Five Stars - Great for panos! - Jeff S. USA
821 5.0 out of 5 - Verified Purchase - Awesome - Donald F. USA
820 Hey there, Thank you for the fast response. You guys have excellent service. That is RARE these days. Best Regards - Bradley
819 I predominantly shoot 360˚ panoramas promoting expedition travel so I need rugged precision equipment that I can rely on when I'm shooting in remote locations of the world. I've used Nodal Ninja products for over 15 years and I can always count on the products and the company to keep me shooting in all situations. - Tony Redhead
818 Hi Bill, I received the Knob today for my rail and thank you very much! I lost the original one out on the Falcon’s football field, so I suppose that one is gone forever. Since they played a game in the Georgia Dome this weekend, I guess it has been cleated into the ground by now. Now I know to stick an O-Ring on the end of the thing so maybe I hope to never need another Knob Job from you ever again! Many thanks for the knob and what you do for us. With best wishes for your continued success, Very truly yours, - George S. Pearl, QPP / Atlanta Panorama / ALPS Labs
817 Hello I wonder why it's taken me so long to purchase one of your products. I am totally pleased with the precision, fine machining and efficient minimalist nature of my new kit. Thank you and keep up the excellent work.  - Robert Bock / VFX sup/ VFX DP (RodeoFX)
816 My NN4 irregular arrived yesterday. just three days after I ordered it. I am amazed at the keen eyesight your quality control folks must have because I have scrutinized the product very carefully and can detect no flaws that would cause me to call it a reject. It is certainly a testimony to the high standards of your company. I was also impressed by the fact that it is the first time I have ordered an item from any size company and had it arrive with a handwritten thank you from the CEO on the invoice. - Steve McIlree
815 When a company gets customer service right the feeling is awesome.  My problem, I needed a parts kit, a small item only a few dollars but online ordering prevented with courier costs. So I stopped my online shopping cart. A few days later an email saying about completing my order came through. I replied to this cordially and happily saying no problem and I understand courier cost US to NZ makes it a bonkers idea. Mere moments later a reply from Rob at Nodal Ninja letting me know that he agreed with the bonkers courier cost and will send me the repair kit and postage free of charge. I was already happy with the company and product but attention to small detail service like this is nothing less than outstanding. What they have done is guaranteed that all of my future and recommended purchases will be to Fanotec Nodal Ninja.  Too many people are quick to shout and complain. Too few will shout to congratulate and applaud. Epic job. Thank you - Neil Jones / Wanganui, New Zealand
814 Dear Rob, This small message to tell you that the packet is well arrive in Cambodia, i have try our product since 3 evening and I should say that after more than 30 years photography, I don’t see a product so well finish as you’re at this day!  If you need any testimonial in French, or German… let me know that will be my pleasure.  Warms regards - Stéphane
813 Thanks, Rob! You're my hero! - Lois
812 You're amazing. Thanks so much. I really look forward to capturing my first images! Best, TJ -- TJ Nuckolls
811 My shipment just arrived... as an engineer I love the design, fit/finish, robustness and packaging of the products. As a photographer I’ve made over 600 panoramas using Nodal Ninja gear: https://www.360cities.net/profile/johnwood Look forward to making pole panoramas, John
810 Waw!!!!! Thank you very much! I love NN!!!! :-) - Mario C., Columbia
809 I got this product about a week ago and wow! Very well made, easy to use, easy to set up in the field, simple operation and excellent results. My panorama stitching is seamless. Really excellent designed product for the serious panoram pro! - Cecil (M1-L w/ RD16 II)
808 Wow Bill Bailey you have outdone yourself.. yet again. - Chaim P. USA
807 I see well, I think it'll work! Thanks so much, Bill you're the best! - Fabio M. USA
806 Good advice. Thanks for all your tips Bill, much appreciated. - Dave K. USA
805 Dear Bill, Hope all is well with you. I have been using the nodal ninja carbon travel pole & I must congratulate you as its truly a fabulous product. Its wonderful !! - Harmeet S. India
804 Bill, I used the NN5 for years and upgrade to M1L as I realized it was possible. I like the NN-products a lot.  Your and also Mauros Service (Italy) is fantastic. Thats why it was a pleasure for me to send some suggestions for minor hardware updates (like marks at the upper M1L-rotator a.s.o.) That it is - for now ;o) Cheers - Norbert S Germany
803 Feel free to ask for a virtual tour (or several) to use on your website as a testimonial of what a nodal ninja can achieve. Best regards - Murray Q. New Zealand
802 I am in the BFA Photography program at the University of Nevada, Reno and have been documenting the Truckee Meadows through large panoramic images for the past two and a half years. My NN5 has been a workhorse. I decided to keep it as a backup for my latest purchase, the M1 (soon to become an M2). Rob rocks: Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi. - Rob O. USA 
801 we look forward to using your product with our Digital Visual Effects Post Grad students. take care, - Ken W. Canada
800 Thanks again for all your great service and support! If you are ever in need of customer testimonials I'm happy to provide one. Best - Roy N. California
799 Dear Nodal Ninja people ... I thought I would drop you a line after 6 months on Nodal Ninja 5 ownership. My observations will be doubtless apply to the newer models. I procrastinated for at least 9 months before buying a Nodal Ninja head. What a fool I was. The quality is superb from the first moment you open the padded case it comes in. You notice the quality when using this superb head ... its precision really is a pleasure. After calibration (on a lazy Sunday afternoon), the time you save in setting up your shot is immediately apparent. This time alone is worth the price, even above the quality feel and operation of the head. Anyone wanting to do well at Panorama photography will NOT be disappointed. When you stitch the picture, you see the quality again ... The image stitches about 5 times as fast because individual images are so precisely aligned. Also, there are a few good you tube videos to help you align your body with all your lenses ...My sincere thanks to your company for making and selling this excellent product. - Mick Deutsch, Australia
798 Panoramic photos:reality and easy to use - 4 stars. About Me, Photo Enthusiast. Rapid and easy to use to create very good panoramic photos.  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By JR from Madrid, Spain (B&H NN3 MKII review)
797 Nodal Ninja MK3 II - 2 stars.  About Me, Casual Photographer. I used this head to shoot panoramas. It's inexpensive but takes tideous amount of work to keep it level throughout the whole range (360).  No, I would not recommend this to a friend. - By j05h from Detroit, MI (B&H NN3 MKII review) (moderator comment: customer simply did not tighten lower rotator)
796 Beautifully crafted - 5 stars. About Me, Pro Photographer. I photograph architecture. Leveling is important to me.I get close to straight with my ball head and now I can fine tune my leveling with the EZ-Leveler. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - andrea b. from honolulu HI (B&H EZ-Leveler-II review)
795 Great compact solution for sphere panos - 5 stars.  About Me, Pro Photographer. This is an excellent product. I bought this for use with the Google Photographer program and it works flawlessly. I use this with a Canon 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye lens and I can acquire a full spherical panorama in about 15 seconds once the equipment is set up. Setup takes about 1 minute from when I unzip the case to when I have it mounted onto the tripod. It is a very easy solution and it has rock solid stability. I am very happy with this product.  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By TriExposure Photography from Phoenix, AZ (B&H R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Head review)
794 When you don't any problems with your package is always great feedback.
793 5/5: A very satisfying purchase. Product was exactly as described, arrived in perfect condition and got here very quickly. I REALLY liked the handwritten "thank you" on the packing slip; the first personalized one I've gotten in this impersonal world of online ordering
792 5/5: Thanks for the item. well packaged.
791 5/5: Great gear for the price.
790 5/5: Im very happy!
789 5/5: Item arrived very quickly and in excellent(new) condition. Packaged very well, fast shipment, and great communication with the seller! Outstanding transaction! Thank you!

787 5/5: good packing fast shipping thanx
786 5/5: great item, great seller, recommended
785 5/5: It Arrived as expected. I had no contact with the seller other than the order fulfillment. I am excited to try the camera mount.... as soon as the camera is backfrom the repair shop.
784 5/5: Good deal, thank you.
783 5/5: Great and fast service!
782 5/5: good

779 5/5: Great transaction
778 5/5: fast shipping, this item is described as a "standard package". actually it is "starter kit"
777 5/5: Fast shipping, item in great condition. Thanks!
776 5/5: Thankyou, this is the best !!!
775 5/5: Its ok
774 5/5: Excelente seller. Very fast shipping. A+++++
773 5/5: Great Seller!!
772 5/5: arrived early
771 5/5: Excellent product, excellent service
770 2/5: In addition to the M1 and RD16, you also need a mounting plate to mate with the camera. The ad did not say that. If it did,I couldn't find it. Further, they don't have a plate for a D800 and I had they told me to go to another vendor and buy it for $80.  Seller Response: 2? - totally unfair - Customer did "NOT" read item description which "DOES" state "Camera Plate Not included". Most people buying M1 already have camera plate for their camera so it's lesser expensive to offer pkg less the plate. You can use any arca swiss style camera plate. We did NOT tell customer go buy another plate from vendor for $80.
769 4/5: Disappointed that this item ships without a user manual Seller Response: All panoramic heads ship with Quick Reference Guides which are also available as downloadable pdf files on our website.
768 5/5: Good!
767 5/5: Product came as specified. Very satisfied. 
766 5/5: Excellent seller. They have the best customer support in the VR industry, bar none. I *highly* recommend them without any reservations whatsoever.
765 5/5: Incredible seller, prompt delivery and great quality service.
764 5/5: Nodal Ninja has been great to work with. However Amazon seems to a different story in attempting to return this item due to the need to purchase the bigger model. Again, working with the seller has been great but getting Amazon it issue the needed paper work to return the original order seems have developed into a no response issue. I will not be dealing with Amazon purchases in the future.
763 5/5: Llegó a Chile sin problemas a través de un courier. Todo muy bien!
762 5/5: Nodal Ninja is the best in product quality and service!
761 5/5: As usual, excellent product and service. Highly recommended vendor!
760 5/5: Item delivered on time, was as described, great customer service.
759 5/5: Quick shipping excellent product. Great Amazoner!
758 5/5: E-mailed seller requesting expedited shipping. He never responded via e-mail, but the item was shipped promptly and was received before my 'need' date.
757 5/5: The order from Bill Bailey L.L.C. for the nodalninja was correct and arrived 1 week ahead of estimated delivery date. The order was for a Nodal Ninja 3 R-D8 which i put to use the day it arrived for a panoramic shot of Diamond Head to Kapolei on Oahu HI. The pan was then stitched together via Adobe CS5 resulting in a seamless panorama.
756 5/5: Great product, very well made and works beautifully. Shipping was way fast, less than a week. If you are in to Panoramic photography than you either have one of these heads or you need one.
755 4/5: Delivered as expected...
754 1/5: I didn't like dealing with hem. Seller Response: Order processed smoothly. Buyers many times think expedited shipping means Express next day service. Customer received item before time stated. If ever a concern just contact us for quick resolve - thx
753 5/5: Great Seller.
752 5/5: Excellent service
751 5/5: had an issue with the product the problem was corrected immediately.
750 5/5: Very happy with this vendor, product came on time, in new condition and very quickly.
749 5/5: Item was as represented. Very satisfied.
748 5/5: Good service
747 3/5: I did not appreciate the fact you gave a me a charger with no cord to charge the battery also I did not like the fact that you did not include a strap for the camera and one of the batteries were broken  Seller Response: we clearly stated this in item listing. You did get all items as described in listing. Sellers generally do not mention all the items a listing doesn't include - only the items it does include. Also buyer failed to contact us with concern or we have have gladly made generous restitution for misunderstanding.
746 5/5: Fast delivery. More than adequate packaging. Item delivered in exact condition as described.
745 1/5: "Item Was Actually Not In Stock Even Though It Was Still Listed, Before they notified me about this I had already ordered the ink cartridges for it which I was not able to get a complete refund. I am highly disappointed with this seller. "
744 Seller Response: two orders came in for 1 item at same time - highly unusual but certainly not worthy of a 1 rating. We understand your frustration and apologize for the inconvenience. Inks are always returnable if unopened.
743 5/5: "Great Service! Thanks!"
742 5/5: "Everything went just fine with my purchase."
741 5/5: "Good deal; thank you."
740 5/5: "Super; thank you."
739 1/5:  "I accidentally ordered two, but despite repeated attempts to contact the supplier both before the items shipped, and after they arrived, I could not get any response from the seller."
738 Seller Response: We respond to ALL concerns promptly. There are "no" emails from buyer through our website or Amazon.com store. He may have called after hours or left unclear message on phone. Rating of "1" is unfair and certainly unreasonable. We ALWAYS return calls. Even though it was buyer mistake we refunded total shipping cost.
737 5/5: "It is very well made, It is precise and the EZ leveler works perfectly. I actually recommend it. I'm using a Rebel XTi and Tokina 10-17 fisheye. I'm shooting 12 pictures instead of 8 because the vertical arm length doesn't allow to put the camera shooting the zenith. However, shooting two rounds of 6 pictures at 30 degrees I get perfect panoramas. I would considered the longer arms of the NN5. "
736 Seller Response: item shipped one day early and was not delivered late. Many times people assume "expidited shipping means "express". It does not - expedited shipping merely means the seller will ship sooner. We are happy to hear you enjoy our product.
735 4/5: "Exellent"
734 Seller Response: Why the "4" rating? If you ever have question or concern please never hesitate to contact us.
733 5/5: "satisfied for much"

727 5/5: "NodalNinja was extremely helpful with my order. He went out of his way to make sure I received the product on time. The product was in MINT condition as advertised and he also provided helpful and intelligent responses to my product questions. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again. "
726 5/5: "Seller very generously reversed all charges when I canceled an item during transit; very courteous and professional communication. "
725 5/5: "Excellent shipping and packing."

719 5/5: "Ordered late Friday, arrived early Monday morning, doesn't get any better than that. Excellent product, Excellent service, will do business with again."
718 5/5: "quick delivery and quick response on contact."
717 5/5: "Arrived very fast. Thanks for great service."
716 5/5: "A definite 5 stars, and a BIG Thank You, Bill Bailey. When I inquired about the shipment date, Bill did not hesitate to upgrade the shipment option from "regular" to "express"... so that I could receive my Nodal Ninja on time for my trip. THANK YOU!"
715 5/5: "Package arrived earlier than expected."
714 5/5: "This product is as described and is doing the job I needed it for at about half the price of some of it's competitor. I have have used it with a Canon 5d mkII and 24-905mm lens. but will be using a lighter lens most of the time. Thanks"d fast shipping, thank you!"
713 5/5: "Service was fast and accurate. I called to ask about a T-plate adapter which wasn't included in the kit but I may have needed. I intended to pay for the part, yet when I called the seller, he went ahead and sent it out express mail at no charge. He obviously wanted to provide good customer service and he did. The product is great and I have no complaints.
712 5/5: "Product works well and as expected. Prompt delivery."
711 4/5: " The only diffculty was getting the merchandise delivered. USPS simply dropped off a slip indicating that item needed to be picked up at the P.O., although I was at home at the time. Perhaps USPS is not he best way to ship merchandise."
710 Seller Response: We do offer UPS and FedEx and by default we do ask for delivery confirmation so if not home they can only leave a pick up slip. Also the slip they leave many times allows you to sign giving instruction to the carrier to redeliver and leave at your door. We're sorry the experience you encounter, even though out of our control, made you feel our product/service was only worth a rating of 4.
709 5/5: "fast, great service."
708 5/5: "The best customer service I have delt with."
707 5/5: "Let me tell you, it does not come any faster. Trust me, these guys are a perfect "90"."
706 5/5: "This is a great item, it does what it has to do perfectly well. I had a technical question and the answer came back within hours! Great product, great service."
705 Dear Bill, How should I tell the feeling of these thanks to you? Because I am weak in English, I may not convey my feeling well. I really thank for your goodwill of this time. I look forward to that an article arrives very much. You're very kind. - Best regards,Shigeru, Japan
704 Hi Bill, Thanks for the follow-up.  And for the kind gift. Cheers - Brian. K USA
703 Just like everything I've purchased from Nodal Ninja and Fanotec. This is an amazing tool. It allows me to get some truly unique angles, and being a stable platform I can shoot long into the evening when other elevated options have to pack it in as soon as the exposure times get longer.  Thanks Bill and Nick for your attention to detail and uncompromising quality! I'm always visiting the site to see what you've come up with next. (Can't wait to get my hands on that Pole 3 Extension!!) - Bill H. USA 
702 This is an awesome addition. Finally, you can shoot panos in rows with any lens. The click stops are poorly explained in the "documentation" but once figured out, is a snap. Click, click, click. I easily produced a vertical set pano 10 across in 3 rows. Using AutoPan (not PS), I produced a flawless pano with a 70 mm lens thus reducing barrel and lens distortion. Highly recommended. Highly crafted…- Comments by bodywise : awesome (Ultimate M1-L With RD16 II Rotator Panoramic Head) 5 stars

694 My NN5 has worked flawlessly since the day I got it. Lots of parts, but it's a quality tool. I wish I had a few more ways to lock in a camera at specific points, something like click stops for the rail. It never fails that I get a measurement set up for a camera / lens / focal length (65.x for this rail, something else for another one) and then still feel like I'm off a little bit. I've recalibrated / lost my numbers more than I care to admit ... perhaps a place on NN5's website for me to store my own combo's so I always have them later. - Anonymous USA

684 I picked the NN3 a few years ago to shoot panoramas for expeditions that led me into remote areas. The NN3 was obviously compact and looked extremely sturdy.

I will be getting a new small DSLR soon, with some new lenses, including a zoom, about 24-100 (35 mm eq), and some primes. Will depend on how many images I will be using to shoot expanded landscapes. Still testing, but I love the NN3. It is well-made, lightweight, easy to set up and use. I might eventually get an advanced rotator also. - Mac F. USA

I have met Andrew and he really does know his stuff. However I have links to all 3 on my web site....The only problem with dealing direct with Nodal Ninja in the USA is the duty payable on items entering the UK and the £8 the Post Office charge to colect the duty, which is a great shame as USA prices are much keener than UK prices and I would have bought a Nadir Adapter for $34.95, but am recluctant to buy one at £51.54. - Hugh A.

656 Nodal Ninja N4-PKG - Great tool, but requires setup. About Me Photo Enthusiast. Verified Buyer.Pretty slick little tool - worked great right out of the box, albeit after a bit of setup. Requires setup for each lens/camera combination, but making marks on the pano arms helps reduce changeover time the 2nd time around. Great for a dedicated lens/camera combo, but changing lenses in the field can be tricky (especially in the dark). Rotation of pano head became sticky and troublesome on 3rd use.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Jazzerlex from Los Angeles, CA
655 Nodal Ninja 3 a Superb Kit. What a superb kit. I use the NN3 MKII with an old Sigma DP1s (circa 5 mpix) to stitch together moderate to ultra-wide fields and increase megapixel depth for higher resolution. I typically end up with 15 to 30 megapixel stitches sorted out in a minute or two with the NN3 and DP1 (and this after ruthless cropping later). The notch settings on the pano guide allow me to preset the next stitch while the (slow) camera loads the RAW image to memory without me looking through the LCD. 10 to 30 frame stitches (and I'm sure more but I don't need larger) are really fast and easy, which is helpful if you're doing landscapes with quickly moving clouds. The build quality of the NN3 is flawless, break down and set up quick and easy. It's super light and a great match for the tiny DP1, a Hakuba carbon tripod, and a small Joby ball head. I leave the verticle assembly attached to the camera and pack it in my tiny camera bag. I leave the horizontal assembly on the tripod and ball head and pack the lot in the tripod bag. In practice, I haven't even noticed the weight difference. I'm totally happy. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend - Troy SC

649 I'm convinced this is a critical tool. I've been doing panoramic photography for a short time, and I've been reluctant to plunk down a small chunk of money for a device like this, instead reverting to alternative ideas to make pans, i.e. fisheye lens adapters and lens rings. After my last road trip, and a few photographic epiphanies along that way, I decided to take the plunge and pick up this item. It's turned into a great investment. Using this device along with a simple point-and-shoot camera has taught me a ton more about shooting angles, no-parallax points, and just photography in general. It's also helped me understand better my camera's operational abilities and limitations. Do yourself a favor. If you are an aspiring panographer or just a typical spherical photography hack like me, plunk down the $[$]for this item, and also pick up a sturdy, headless tripod along for the ride. They'll both be worth the investment. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend - M. lopez CA
648 Great Product for Panos - 5 stars. About Me, Photo Enthusiast. I use this to make single row panoramas with my Olympus e5 DSLR and it works great. No more parallax problems! Well constructed and easy to use, you can even buy alternate plates to accommodate an area style plate from Nodal Ninja's website. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Mike from Long Island (B&H NN4 review)
647 Nice budget panoramic head - 5 stars. About Me, Photo Enthusiast. I've used this head to take 360x180 full spherical panoramas and some partial spherical panoramas with my 5D Mark III. It's so much faster and easier to get all the needed shots for a large panorama! It's worked great with a variety of lenses. I've successfully used it from 24 up to 100mm focal lengths on full-frame. It's lighter and cheaper than some of the alternatives, but still solidly built and easy to use. It comes with some extra parts and a nice carrying case. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Jeff from Seattle, WA (B&H NN4 review)
646 It does what it promises - 4 stars. About Me, Pro Photographer. Are there better panorama devices? Absolutely, but they cost a lot more. At this price point (especially if you want to minimize parallax) there is no competition. I improved it a bit with an arca-style clamp that I had sitting around. If you had to make hundreds of stitched photographs on short notice, it makes sense to spend the extra money on the more expensive model or perhaps the motorized version but for the occasional pano or Brenizer, this is light, travels well, and works as promised. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Ben from New York (B&H NN4 review)
645 Good value for money - 5 stars. About Me, Photo Enthusiast. This is an easy to use, well thought out panoramic head. I mostly take 3-4 shot stitches in portrait orientation, and I don't have a complaint. As another reviewer said, those with very demanding needs might want something more elaborate, and perhaps mechanized, but this is a solid product that won't get in your way. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. - By Photomatrix_1 from Vermont (B&H NN4 review)

642 Hi, Just a little note to thank you for the excellent after sale service you provided. I will be pleased to talk about your quality products and very good service if an occasion rises. 
641 Hi Bill...I love your products and your service has always been excellent...Last year after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami I thought it would be a real good idea to document the devastation with 360s so people could get a sense of the overwhelming scale. Also to document the progress at the same places a year later. I tried to figure out if there was a way I could do it myself but it was beyond I could pull off. Last month I bumped into the 360s by Akila Ninomiya with support from several 360-related companies but particularly by Nodal Ninja. I was glad to see that someone was able to do it. Those panos are so painful to look at but so important. Good on you for stepping up and helping! - Blaine E. Japan 
640 Hi Rob, Just a short note to thank you again for your recommendation of the Nodal Ninja 5 with the RD16 rotator. I also have the EZ Leveler 2. This is a significant upgrade in terms of the cost versus my previous panoramic head, [deleted]. I've used the [deleted] for many years, both the 2 and original version, primarily for landscapes....Today I tried my first spherical HDR pano using the Nodal Ninja system. I've now branched out into interior HDR spherical panoramas and while I've only used the Nodal Ninja system only once I am very impressed. Just the time saved using a 35mm lens for a spherical HDR pano makes the investment worthwhile. The Nodal Ninja NN5 is sturdier which I notice most with shots requiring pitch beyond a second row. The EZ Leveler 2 makes it fast and simple to accurately level the head. Thank you again for your recommendations....Regards - Bob B. Rockville, Maryland
639 Hi Bill, First of all, congratulations on a great product – I’ve been doing a lot of research into 360 photography recently and the Nodal Ninja always comes out top of the pile when it comes to reviews! Thanks - Nick G. Canada 
638 Having used swing-lens type systems to make panoramas for several years I have only just made the switch to digital. Starting with 'guessed' motions I was not very satisfied with the results I was getting. I started looking at panoramic heads and a friend recommended I check out the Nodal Ninja. I can not be more happy with the NN3mk2. It is very easy to set up and use. It is very light and comes in a very nice travel case even making packing easy. That alone should be enough, but add to that truly excellent customer service makes this a very easy recommendation. - Andrew J. - Amazon.com

634 This is my first unboxing video Ever. Just showing You Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 from Fanotec. First, I unpack the pano head itself and then move to the ring for Nikon 10.5 fisheye lens. I didin't get time to use it as much but I can already tell the precision and feel is so much better than my old NN3. Hope you enjoy it fellow panoramists. - DavvidGorny YouTube.com 
633 The NN Fanotec carbon fibre pano pole and tripod clamps were delivered promptly, were well packed and exceeded expectations of engineering and finish. In use the kit combines with my Gitzo cf tripod seamlessly and the combination works extremely well. Recommended without reservation!  -John L. Bath 
632 The item was dispatched on time as promised. It was easy to contact for any queries to be answered. Today, I have attached the GPS device to my Nikon D200 camera and taken a test picture. I have been able to Geotagg the image and the location is very close, within a reasonable tolerance. The only thought that I have had is I need to establish a suitable Workflow when considering working on 100s of images. Thank you - Peter A. UK 
631 A very well engineered, ingenious product. It's sold 'flat-pack', so 5 stars for being complete down to the last washer! Obviously, it has to be sold this way, as you have to customise it to the dimensions of your own camera. The inclusion of a millimetre steel rule and the link to very user-friendly step-by-step instructions on the website makes everything straightforward. My only caveat is that I felt it it was slightly expensive (maybe we're still paying off the R&D costs?). However, when you compare it with the competition (Manfrotto, professional kit at professional prices), it's undoubtedly the best deal available for anyone who just wants to get into panoramic photography for the pleasure of it, but wants to get it right. - Bob G. Ely 
630 What I like: Sturdy construction should last a long time, Rotator works really well and allows for click-stop rotation points from 3.5 degrees up to 120 degrees for lots of lens/field of view/coverage options. Not too heavy so will likely take it to most locations. - Landon M. USA 
629 I bought the Ninja 3 Mk11 as a replacement for a Manfrotto 303, which was too heavy to carry for long distances. I am delighted with the Ninja 3 - it has all the functionality and accuracy that I require, it weighs very little and can be easily stowed in any camera bag. With the addition of an optional T bar it can be used with compacts etc that do not have a mounting screw on the lens optical centre. Highly recommended. - Richard P. Storrington 
628 I ordered an NN3 T-adaptor thinking it was a bit expensive. It turned out to be an excellent piece of kit which fits neatly on the NN3, has a lockable camera position, and a couple of stops to make setting up easy. Still not cheap, but good value for money. The adaptor was securely packed and budget delivery only took a couple of days. So all good for me. - Keith D. Ruislip 
627 i've dragged several different nodal ninjas all around the world for a few years now, they are incredibly durable and i have never had any sort of prob w any of my NN gear with which i have shot hundreds of panos with over the last 5 years or so, and i am not always the most gentle person w my gear... [deleted] was an ok head in its day when there were few other options, but these days it is a boat anchor, unnecessarily heavy and bulky, overpriced and outdated, and w nothing like the (best in industry) support provided by bill & the other folks at nodal ninja. - Sam R.

626 just received my NN4. What a joy this product is. I took me approximately 4 minutes to set it up and calibrate to my d3000s/10.5mm Fisheye. My first stitch (12 stops) was excellent. The NN4 is well made and engineered for heavy use. I am very pleased with the product and look forward to many successful sessions. Great job guys!! - KyleMD - NN Forum 
625 First bought [deleted] device - quite dissatisfied. Use PTGui and looked at the "pano head" links in that site. Also looked at ReallyRite Stuff (from which I also buy). Liked what I saw at your site about your product the best. Haven't been using it frequently but like it a lot (easy to understand, set up and use - don't need to carry the manual with me); expect frequency will increase now that I am retired. Will be showing it to the Baltimore camera Club of which I am a member on our "Show your Gear" (tomorrow) night. I bought directly from your store. - Bob H. USA 
624 Bill, I used the NN5 for years and upgrade to M1L as I realized it was possible. I like the NN-products a lot. Your and also Mauros Service (Italy) is fantastic. Thats why it was a pleasure for me to send some suggestions for minor hardware updates (like marks at the upper M1L-rotator a.s.o.) That it is - for now ;o) Cheers. - Norbert S. Germany 
623 I do have lots of panoramic photographs from CT, Las Vegas, Grand canyon, Texas and virtual tours in and around new england and texas area..... I love this tool. It's the best you could find in the market. - ihariharan - Nodal Ninja Forum 
622 I support and train on the Nodal Ninja 3 solution for Leica HDS in the UK and really do have confidence in recommending this equipment to Customers because of the quality and relaibilty of the products, which I feel are supurbly engineered. - anonymous - customer feedback form 
621 you produce a beautifully fuctional piece of equipment from which I hope to get years of use. Kudos also to your top-notch customer service dept. & it's dedication to rapid response. - Jeff T. USA 
620 NN3 was everything I was expected from this kind of product in panophotography market. It proved to be solid, reliable, ease of use and affordable. I would trust any product from Fanotec. - Laurentiu R. Romania 
619 Just took delivery of my very own M1L pano head with the RD16 rotator, Nadir adapter, camera plate and quick release clamp. What a magnificent piece of photo equipment! It came pre assembled, but knocked down and stored in the protective case. I did not have any of the assembly problems I have read about here. It was basically slide the parts together, calibrate and start shooting. The precision, the construction, the craftsmenship! WOW! My last pano head purchase from Fanotech was the Nodal Ninja 3 (without the upper rotator click stops). Very well done Nick. It was well worth the wait. - Dennis S - NN Forum 
618 We have been using the NN3 up to the NN5 for the last 8 years and our company has done more than 20k tours using your pano head. The only time we had an issue with a bent rail (our fault) we were back up and running in days. We love the product and the service even more. Thank you  - Ryan H. Canada 
617 Great Rob, Thank you for the great service. I will recommend nodal ninja to all i know. - Edwin S. 
616 Of course! I had forgotten about the tools and extra parts that came with the NN3. I made the adjustment and aligned the calibrations. Works like brand new again! Thanks, Bill. I wish everything was as well-made as the NN3 and that every company provided the excellent service that yours does.  - Peter S. USA 
615 Your the best. That's very kind and very pro, I knew nodal ninja was making great products but they are also great sellers! A big bravo and a huge thanxs! Kind regards, jerome 
614 WOW! thanks Rob,I have read on the blogs your guys have great customer service, and I can see that is true. Plus you have highly rated product. I had just booked my first job right after I ordered, and the client only has the morning of the 23rd open. Before they where telling me sometime in June. Oh well, maybe I can book another project for June to. - Mike
613 Well guys and girls.. My NN4 has arrived!!! I guess since I am the first in the world to officially receive one, this would be the first basic overview review of the New Nodal Ninja NN4... First impressions are always the best... Well, as I opened the box I was lost for words, except for the many ''Wow's''!! If I were to compare the NN3 to this New NN4 I would have to say there is no comparison. I am truly blown away. It is a beautiful thing..! The finish is really nice, perfect in fact. Nodal Ninja have certainly put a lot of thought into this New NN4 pano head... The Nadir Adapter for NN3 and NN5 series is a really nice thing too. It feels nice in the hand and works great, very precise clicks with great functionality. I guess the new name for this Nadir Adapter might be the Nadir Adapter for NN3, NN4 and NN5 series..... My NN4 with all the bells and whistles is now mounted on my tripod and looking fantastic. I guess I should be bouncing about the room like a spring bunny but to be honest I am feeling a bit tearful. Bill Bailey CEO of LLC dba Nodal Ninja has done a really nice thing for both me and John.. and baby too..!! He sent her a little rubber Ninja; she loves it!! And John and I do not have to fight over the Nodal Ninja coin either since Bill sent us two!! The NN4 is far better engineered than the NN3, it's thicker, stronger and when mounted onto of the RD-16 Rotor it's perfect. I am going to love using this NN4 pano head and I will look professional too. I love all the beautifully inserted cork bits. Although they have a function they also look good too, really nicely placed and finished off. Even the main plastic securing knobs are well finished with no sharp edges. The bubble leveller is clear and clean looking. The Quick Release System has a really nice fine marker for accurate placing. The Nadir setup stops are now metal, rather than the old plastic ones. I think that all of the hard work that has been put into this very fine tool will be appreciated by thousands of pano photographers around the world for many years to come. Bill Bailey and his team should be very proud of themselves for producing such a high quality engineered and beautifully finished NN4 pano head. I almost forgot to mention a really important feature of the NN4. The increments' on the rotating upper bar adjustment is just GREAT! No longer do I have to set this by eye. It works really well. I just have to rotate it to 30 degrees and 'click' its there, then up to 60 degrees and again 'click' its there. But the one's I love most are the 90 and 45 degrees, it now sets to vertical and right angle with no problems, easy and perfect every time... I love the NN4 - Destiny - Autopano.net forum
612 I haven't used my new NN3 yet but I wanted to mention how great I think their customer support is. They sent the adapter, answered what ever questions I had to make sure that I was a happy customer. Its alway nice to do business with people who say what they mean and do what they say they will. - Chuck S. USA Panoguide Forum
611 Just to let you know that my NN5 has arrived up here in Iceland, already assembled, mounted on my tripod with my 5D MkII with battery grip + Canon EF 135 f/2 lens - and first test shots made. I'll keep this short - This excellent piece is truly and fully up to my expactations - a giant leap from its little sibling NN3 :-) Really sturdy and stable - and the Fanotec RD 16 rotator a real joy to operate. I just hope that coming weekend will arrrive with favourable weather for serious panorama shooting !!!! Thank you - and all the best from ICELAND  - Pall Gudjonsson
610 Hi Rob, Thank you for making this exchange so easy! Thank you for sending me the ring for the Sigma 8mm F3.5 Ex DG Fisheye Lens. Welcome back from vacation! - Dan
609 I've got an NN5 with an RD8 rotator, Leveler II and a nadir adapter. It's been a superb machine and I can't say enough good things about it. - John R. NASATech.net
608 Just purchased an NN5 with RD16 factory second. The product is extremely well made. It looks like it will be more than capable of supporting a heavy SLR and possibly more. I have to say I was extremely happy with the customer service from Rob who gave excellent advice on choice of product. My order was completed Monday and arrived in Australia on Friday from Arizona. You would not know it is a 2nd I cant fault it in any way. Many thanks to the Ninja team.  - Lloyd Young.
607 I had the pleasure of chatting with Mauro....and I can literally say that he provided to me support of quality beyond my best expectations. Many thanks- Thomas M. Slovakia
606 Hi Bill, I just have bought a Nodal Ninja 5 and it is a real (!!!) cool panohead! Best regards,  - Holger T, Facebook
605 NOTE: We contacted customer for feedback after 3 year old purchase: 
604 Hi Bill, They are holding up perfectly. I love them. I've been using the NN5 with a Mamiya 645AFD II and a Leaf Aptus digital back. the files that I can generate with relatively few images are very impressive. I'm beginning to consider getting an 80MP digital back in the not too distant future which would allow me to make files in the 2GB range with 5 exposures. If you are interested in seeing any of the images they are on my website. Most of the images that are larger than 24x30 are stitched. Anyway - your products are great and they are holding up well. At some point I will be trying to get several NN3s for my program. Best, David T. NM USA
603 Hi there. I have just come back to the UK on my R&R and found my delivered Nodal Ninja. I can report that it is of really good quality and I am well happy with it. Money well spent. I have yet to use it but I must first look for a good solid tripod but I am sure it will give me good service. Thanks - Ross B. UK
602 Our ez leveler arrived today!(3 days! wow) Thank you Nodal Ninja. This is a fine piece of metalwork, fit and finish are exceptional. Tactile feel of the jackscrew threads is just plain sexy, with no perceptible backlash. The ez leveler will speed up your workflow. ...As for the people of Nodal Ninja, not only did they honor their word, but went even further by sending me the case when I unwittingly choose the caseless model. To top it all off, they also sent me a "Nodal Ninja Coin". Customer appreciation and service of this caliber are rare. If anyone is on the fence about purchasing a Nodal Ninja product, don't hesitate. These are the kind of people you want to deal with everyday. - Buffalo Vr - Facebook
601 Hi Derek, THANK YOU SO MUCH, I really appreciate your personally getting involved and getting this order shipped. Your personal touch will help this company grow, for sure. And, if you have a survey that I can fill out about what great service you gave, I am happy to do that. I look forward to dealing with your store much more due to your courtesy and rapid responses and making me feel like you're ONLY customer. - Bobbie H. USA

596 I have the RD3L on my NN3 and absolutely love the ease of use. I could not imagine not having the E-Z leveler!!! Congrats!!! - Jarred A. Facebook
595 NodalNinja was extremely helpful with my order. He went out of his way to make sure I received the product on time. The product was in MINT condition as advertised and he also provided helpful and intelligent responses to my product questions. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again. - Tyler K. - Amazon.com

592 Thanks for supporting us... and enjoy your Ninjas ;) - Roman M. Facebook
591 I have used the R10 for well over a year now and have shot hundreds of panoramas with it. The anodizing is wearing off. It has never let me down. The lens mounts in the exact same position over and over again. I like the lens ring clamp system so much that I adapted my pano head to use a ring mount and eliminate the upper arm (sort of). It is a great clamping system. - DennisS - Panoguide Forum
590 You are going to need a proper pano head - especially if you are shooting with a fisheye lens. I would recommend a Nodal Ninja 3 or 5 series pano head: - Andrew - Panoguide Forum
589 Big thumbs up for the Nodal Ninja Ultimate. - Mark H. - Panoguide forum
588 Thanks so much - I don't think I've ever won anything before. I have been wanting one of these to go with my NN5L for quite some time. This is going to make my work so much easier!! The EZ Leveler that I won on Monday arrived to day and it is wonderful!!! I can't wait to shoot my next Virtual Tour and try it out. Thank you so much for your great products, helpful forum and the generous giveaways this week!! Y'all are awesome!! - Julie M. - Facebook
587 Nodal is the best ... we use nn5 for many years now - Hans D. - Facebook
586 Hi Bill, First of all I want to tell you how much I like my new Ninja 5 that I bought from you at the Tucson IAPP / IVRPA World Panorama Conference. The ability to shoot in the landscape mode makes all the difference to me since I shoot a lot of the big sporting events and being able to shoot landscape with the click stops makes my job so easy now. It is soooo simple and nobody seems to make their rigs to come apart like yours does to enable landscape shooting. Thanks, I love it. George P. Georgia
585 Hi Folks, I bought one of the NN3 panoheads after reading the comments on these forums and I have been well impressed with it since. A well constructed piece of equipment an well priced. Unfortunately, I managed to damage my NN3 and from that experience I am even more of a fan of the NN3 as I found that their customer service is second to none. I contacted Fanotec for advice after damaging the NN3 and I was bowled over by the quick response and by a quick replacement part shipped over from the states. Often I read customer reviews on web sites and seldom believe the comments. I have to say though, I now believe all I read about Fanotec and the Nodal Ninja. If anyone is considering buying a panohead, consider the NN3. To my mind, you really cant go wrong with the NN3. - Ped Glasgow UK
584 We just had a Photo Adventure Maui and everyone loved the NN5 w/RD16. We had a shoot out between [deleted] and Nodal Ninja and The Nodal Ninja WON!!!!!!! - Randy H. Hawaii - facebook
583 I do love the NN3 and I really love the RD3L rotator/level. Why don't y'all market that combo more? It seems to be the perfect combo for the smaller cameras.....Just for your info, I am now a contract photographer for Everyscape and they have been very happy with my photos thanks to the Nodal Ninja. Thanks again, Jarred A. Texas
582 Mauro, Thank you again for everything that you and the team at Nodal Ninja did to get the product to me as you had promised. It made all the difference for me and what I was working towards in Italy...in fact, since this project, I don't know how I've lived without a Nodal Ninja in my photo arsenal before. - Nathan - Amazon.com
581 Hi Bill, We got home from a successful 32 day road trip on US 89 last week. I really liked working with the Nodal Ninja 5. I could set it up quickly and it was very precise. I just did a post on our blog with a few of my shots and of a link to your site. - Jim - James Cowlin Photographs
580 Dear Bill, Thank you very much for adjusting the order.....It's nice to know that you read the comments carefully. Regards,  - Alex B. USA

576 Hello: The NN 3 is a fantastic tool to work with ... we fix this VR head on our motoriezed MK PanoMachine v. 3.0 => so it´s possible to make a full 360° panorama in only 3 seconds !!! The bracket is very light - that´s what I like very much… - Marc K. Germany
575 Nodal Ninja just arrived; it is great! Thanks Bill for a great product! - Steve L. Facebook
574 Having used swing-lens type systems to make panoramas for several years I have only just made the switch to digital. Starting with 'guessed' motions I was not very satisfied with the results I was getting. I started looking at panoramic heads and a friend recommended I check out the Nodal Ninja. I can not be more happy with the NN3mk2. It is very easy to set up and use. It is very light and comes in a very nice travel case even making packing easy. That alone should be enough, but add to that truly excellent customer service makes this a very easy recommendation. - Andrew J. Amazon.com
573 Mauro is one of the reasons people will return to Nodal Ninja. I have experienced one of the best customer service managers I have met during 40 years in business. Service minded, polite, intimately familiar with your products and their practical use, and very goal oriented. Mauro is one of the reasons why I continue to use Nodal Ninja - and plan to upgrade my line of Fanotec products during the next few months. With regards, Leif N. Denmark
572 hey bill - wow, thanks so much, RD16 is great, i was actually gonna borrow a friends for this shoot, ive got about 4 friends in NY who have picked up NN's lately, or are just about to, everyone is interested in shooting panos all of a sudden. You could give classes (ahem, [name deleted], cough) on marketing and social networking yourself, nick makes a great product, and the far ranging and proactive support you have provided is what puts NN in a class by yourselves, and is unparalleled with about any other product i can think of, too bad you dont have a brother working for nikon not that they would listen to him anyway… - Sam R. NY NY
571 You will find people have their own preferences in equipment and lenses. My setup is: Cannon 450D camera body Sigma 8MM Fisheye Nodal Ninja 3 MKII. Nodal Ninja is a good starting place. The pano head is good, supports a wide range of lenses for either the Nikon or Cannon camera bodies and is relatively inexpensive. - Ray S. - PTgui Forum
570 Ditto on the Nodal Ninja heads. I compared a Swiss piece at the camera store for about $1800.00 and went with the NN3II and it works great for much less. The camera store guy turned up his nose when I asked if they carried NN and said, "No, that's internet only stuff." - Rich - PTgui Forum
569 Hi Bill, ....your system seems so much better. I like the easy set-up of the Ultimate system vs the Nodal 5. Thanks! - Roger P. Flickr Member
568 I was tempted by a [deleted] head a few months back, although the high prices and the serious lack of support put me right off....Nodal ninja is, by far, the best company to go to for equipment. - mr vr Panoguide forum 
567 First of all I want to thank you for your kind and friendly advice in guiding my first steps in Panoramic photography. Then, I would like to express my appreciation for the highly professional quality of the Nodal Ninja System, the ease of use and the great design. As I told you over the phone, I upgraded to the 5L (+90 degrees detent rings) with a little regret. The NN3 MKII is just fabulous, lightweight and fits perfectly in my kit but unfortunately my current set up is a little too heavy, hence the necessary upgrade. I am glad I get to keep at least the EZ-Leveler II and I am looking forward to receiving the NN 5L to continue my panoramic activities. Thanks again for all your help.  Very best regards, Giovanni - NY 
566 For my sphericals I use a NN3 or alternatively an R1 on a ski stick; due to the low weight the perfect ones for my tours. Thomas W. Facebook 
565 Sandal Ponds- Just a couple weeks ago I had the same exact question on my mind as you do. I think what really sealed the deal for me was looking through the forums and reading some of the great advice here. I actually plan on upgrading my camera so I went with the NN5 + rd16 + ez-leveler II setup. I promise you will not be disappointed. At first i did not plan on getting the ez-leveler II for cost reasons but I can tell you it is well worth it. I am very happy with the setup I have and amazed at the stability and ease of use! There are no con's in my mind on the decision I made! Sure it cost a little more but that will only prove a good decision down the road! Hope this helps! vibes35 NN forum 
564 .....This once again proves that you DO NOT GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR ... when Nodal Ninja is involved. You get so much more than anyone could ever demand, request or even hope for. The level of customer care is beyond anything known to human kind, combined with the exceptional quality of build for very fair pricing, you will get much more than what you actually pay for. You never seize to amaze us Bill! Respectfully, Trausti - Panoguide forum 
563 Need to second Trausti's comments. Very happy customer on NN products, and their support, all the way to Asia Pacific - Malaysia. regardsSebastian - Panoguide forum
562 First Choice for Multi Row Panos. Product: RS-2 Ring Mount Spherical Pano Head Starter Package (F9710) Posted By: David Woodward  - I've had an RS-2 for about 6 months, I use it with an RD5 rotator and Sigma 15mm Nikon D800. I shoot 6 around and one zenith. Once calibrated its easy to use and reliable. So the RS-2 is very good, it's solid and fast. For the D800 the setup has to be solid, I use with an 057 Carbon Manfrotto and Manfrotto levelling head. 
561 Best Panoramic Head Existed... Product: NN4 w/ RD16-II Advanced Rotator (F4503) Posted By: Rodney - i have used NN3 for the past 3 years and ordered NN4 for a change as the previous one was wear-off already. Upon testing i was afraid from the start and having a second thought why i ordered NN4 which i was really satisfied with NN3, as the upper rotator stops only at 0 and 15 degrees. which i was shooting at 10 degress up.. then i remembered reading the description that it has an offset value for 5, 7.5 and 10 degrees but no instructions on how. i tried to teardown the upper rotator and figured how to change the offset value to 10 degrees up. Now i can say it was the best panoramic head ever existed. Very easy to use and indeed worth the money. But please include instructions on how to change the offset value of the upper rotator. Others might need it as well..

558 Works ad advertised Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Morten Hartvig - 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. 
557 Using the M1L to M2 Upgrade kit Product: M1L to M2 upgrade with 65mm QRC (F8112) Posted By: Michel Thoby - As expected and due the accuracy and stiffness required by the smallish 2 degrees minimum intervals, the R8-II rotator drum has quite a hefty diameter. The subsequent problem is then to find a new arrangement inside the FANOTEC case that is just roomy enough to accommodate the new "bigger baby". A 55 mm Arca-Swiss clamp seems sturdy enough to hold the horizontal arm while the 60 mm clamp would probably be better. I might have preferred to find real mechanical stops instead of simple "indicators" for the starting and ending positions although the present system works as expected... except if the Advanced Rotator Handle is put in the lowest of the threaded holes on the R8-II cylinder where it then interferes with the indicator tiny blue teeth and thus screws-up all the angular pre-settings! The new upper rotator is IMO just perfect even when it is deprived of the (optional) positive stops. The ability to adjust the rotation friction is amazing and the user can feel plainly how the control on the elevation angle adjustment is both smooth and accurate. All the new components of the upgrade kit are easy to install to replace the M1 counterparts while I think some documentation would/could be "useful" to some customers.
556 Among the Best Solutions Product: Kolor Autopano Giga 3.5 (S1110) Posted By: Robert S - This product did an excellent job with a difficult 61 frame by 7 bracketed images indoor spherical panorama that had mostly dimly lit artwork but two large stained glass windows. The product matched up the 427 images flawlessly in a reasonable amount of time. Using 12GB of memory and 8 Xeon cores, it still takes over an hour but this is faster than competing products. No product that I have tested seems to handle the severe contrast of the bright and colorful stained glass juxtaposed to dimly lit features. I receive compliments on the work from non-professionals, but I may need to generate manual masks in Photoshop to get that last 2% of performance I am seeking. Overall, an excellent product, one I hope the developers continue to improve. 
555 You guys Rock Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Nolan - 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!!! 
554 Excellent piece of engineering! Product: Ultimate Mini Package (UMP) Posted By: N/A - It mounts quickly, allows the lens to be operated without blocking f/stops and does not need any type of special adjustment. Very nice!
553 Refreshing Product: NN3 MKII Starter Package (F3500) Posted By: Jeff - 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.
552 Excellent Product: NN4 w/ RD16-II Advanced Rotator (F4503) Posted By: porkbus - Very easy to use, very durable, and well worth the money in my opinion.
551 Good but could be better Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: N/A - 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 for swapping rotators}
550 Buen producto Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: N/A - 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
549 Solid and beefy Product: Ultimate R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Mount Package (F6120) Posted By: Aleh  - I really liked the build quality of the product. Looks precise and reliable.  I would suggest to add compass which now is available only in GTP package - this feature might be useful for non-GTP users also.
548 looks great but needs a better how to use guide Product: M Series Nadir Adapter (F8301) Posted By: Mikeauknz - The concept looks easy and it looks very well..like in rotating the head but to understand the finer points of using it as a new bee a user video by Nodal Ninja on how to actually use it with the finer detail and then how to take the best shot and then process it inside the major panning software applications would help sell many more of these items plus shorten the learning cycle..a product for those that know what and how best to use it..  {Nodal Ninja reply: The Ultimate M series heads are more designed for the professional using bigger and heavier gear. The nadir adapter only mounts one way and uses 2 screws. Because of varying workflows we do not teach how to shoot panoramas - we merely provide support and for the right product to the right gear.}
547 Great assistant for doing smooth 360 video rotations Product: Advanced Rotator Handle (F1115) Posted By: Mikeauknz - We have also found the Advanced Rotator Handle (F1110) creates very smooth panning shots when using the M series as a video head...
546 It locks and load the camera and plate exactly and accurately Product: Camera Plate Arca-Swiss Style CP-C1 (F2120) Posted By: Mikeauknz - You need to buy the complete NODAL Ninja M Series system which is proven by the test time to understand why the Arca-Swiss Style CP-C1 (F2120) plate is important..Like it has clearly marked indicator marks that save so much time during set up..
545 Excellent Quality Product: NN4 w/ RD16-II Advanced Rotator (F4503)  Posted By: Søren - I can absolutely recommend this item. It's manufactured with great precision, comes with lots of spare parts and a nice case. It works like a charm and I wouldn't want to miss it any more
544 Extremely well made Product: Arca-Swiss Style Quick Release Clamp (F2105) Posted By: Lloyd Young - Precisely made fits plates exactly Lock has variable clamp so should always stay well clamped Have to say customer support is terrific

542 Works great for Google Business photography Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Andy - 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. 
541 Good unit. Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Brian Carey - 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.  {Reply from Nodal Ninja: Sure you can change out the detent ring - they are only $10.} 
540 Much better than expected Product: NN4 Starter Package Factory Irregular (F9419) Posted By: Mutant Pixel - Nodal Ninja must be overly obsessed about quality because to my eye I cant find a thing wrong with this 'factor irregular'. Its a great product, took me about 5 minutes to set up and use. Was completely confounded for 4 of those minutes as to how to connect it to my tri-pod as I had never seen a connector like they have, but I figured it out. The build quality of mine is superb and I got the setup for my camera and lens off the site and was shooting in just a few minutes. Ran the results through Photoshop and PTGui and both worked out great. Excellent product, though I'm subtracting 1 star (maybe a half star) for the lack of decent documentation. Could add a few better explanation, even if just with pictures (like they have but show more steps). Super duper happy with my "factory irregular" overall. 
539 best screw ever Product: NN3 Lower Rail Brass Screw (F3107) Posted By: Ken Dawson - I've use many screws in my life but this one takes the cake. It screwed into my NN3 like it was destiny. I feel as if I shall never use another screw as sublime as this. 
538 Great for my Nodal Ninja 3 and Micro 4/3 camera Product: T adapter III with 30mm offset (F9213) Posted By: Matt B - I purchased this to use with an Olympus E-P3 Micro 4/3 camera and the Nodal Ninja 3. The quality is the same as the parts on my Nodal Ninja 3, which is great. There really isn't much to say, other than it "just works". It was easy to adjust and I had my camera attached to the Nodal Ninja in just a minute or two. 
537 Everything what you need to start shooting panorama Product: NN4 Starter Package (F4500) Posted By: Rafal (The-Zet) - I bought NN4 Starter to create spherical panoramas. Manufacturing is really high quality and it does it's job perfectly. I have been advised to get this model for Canon 7D + Samyang 8mm and it is really good choice. You get a few brass rings to change panorama steps plus some replacements parts. I can fully recommend this product. 
536 Good build, loss of ability to see the focus mark a real problem. Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Frank - 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. {Reply from Nodal Ninja - We now have Version 2 of this ring with window however Google recommends taping the lens focus barrel anyway so not really needed} 
535 Excellent! Product: Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package (F6160) Posted By: N/A - The pano head is very well built, very precision made. It attaches and works flawlessly. I am so glad I chose this one. 
534 Well executed conversion screw Product: Advanced Rotator M6 male to 3/8 male thread adapter (F9200) Posted By: N/A - Converting a 6mm screw for a SINAR clamping set to the standard 38" -16 TPI through an intermediary plate to hold standard tripod ball heads was a snap. I just had to thread the plate with a 3/8" tap. In particular your threading a stainless steel M6 set screw into a 3/8" stainless screw makes tightening and un-tightening controllable. Suggestion that you offer longer sizes in extra lengths, or allow the end user to adjust the depth of the M6 and then loctite it in. Thank you for this important specialized product. 
533 Excellent Nodal Head Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Tony - The Ultimate R10 is smaller, lighter, and so much easier to use compared to other nodal heads I have used. Great purchase!! 
532 Good Rotator for the money Product: NN3 MKII Standard Rotator (F3136) Posted By: N/A - Good Rotator for the money, strong, screw made of steel instead of brass and durable 
531 RS-1 Perfect for my needs Product: NN RS-1 No Lower Rotator (F9701) Posted By: Steve Daniels, St. Petersburg, FL - I have a heavy-duty panoramic bracket from another manufacturer that I am perfectly happy with, but found that using it with my Nikon D90 and 10.5mm fisheye lens for spherical panos showed too many bolts and rails. I contacted Bill Bailey about ordering either a NN 3 MKII, or an RS-1 with ring mount. Bill suggested the RS-1 as being perfect for my equipment, so I ordered it. Upon receiving the RS-1 and assembling it, it looks even smaller than on the website. Attaching the camera and lens and setting the adjustments took less than five minutes, and I shot the first 360 with it. It stitched perfectly the first time. Autopano showed an RMS of 1.25 (Excellent). I am extremely happy with the purchase, and would strongly recommend the RS-1 to anyone who uses a compact DSLR with the Nikon 10.5mm lens. 
530 A simple part that expands the usability of my R1 Product: Ultimate R1/R10 Plastic Insert for Lens Ring Clamp (F6111) Posted By: Felip B. González - It was a nice surprise to find out that by replacing the insert ring from my R1 I could use it with different fisheye lenses. The support team at Nodal Ninja was very helpful and now, with a little investment I can use the same gear with my two favorite fisheyes.

524 Product: EZ Leveler II no Case (F3138) Posted By: Hank Miner - Great build and ease of use. Wish it was a bit smaller, more compact, as the blue adjustment wheels are slightly visible when using with a 8mm fish-eye lens and the Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 pano head
523 ¡Excelente producto! Product: Nadir Adapter for NN3 NN4 NN5 (F9125) Posted By: Mario Carvajal - Funciona perfectamente, es una gran solución cuando necesitas realizar una fotografía para el nadir en interiores, donde tomar la foto "a pulso" es un gran problema, por los tiempos tan largos de exposición. Este pequeño producto garantiza la misma exposición para el nadir que para el resto de fotografías, lo que permite un ensamble perfecto de la panorámica final. Quien compre el NN3 o el NN4 debería comprar este adaptador, si quiere hacer fotografía esférica.
522 Love this product Product: Ultimate R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Mount Package (F6120) Posted By: Matt - I bought this to create spherical panos with my Canon 5D + Sigma 8mm lens. I've used a 360p Absolute for the past few years but decided to try out NN after upgrading my camera. Blown away by the quality and equally important the level of customer service. I had a small issue with my shipping details and they upgraded me to next day air for free. They also responded to my multiple support questions the same day.
521 Lightweight, compact, reliable. Product: NN3 MKII Starter Package (F3500) Posted By: Andrey Ilyin - 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.
520 Pole extension unit Product: Pole Series 1 - Lower Unit Extension (F7104) Posted By: Jook Leung - Pricey but excellent design and construction except for the 2 pairs of anti-twist tube locking collars. They are thin and brittle and made from poor materials. One pair was cracked and unusable. I do like the fact that Fanotec does supply extra replacements for small parts like screws and o-rings. This Fanotec Pole product will now replace my Agnos Pole.
519 Great overall but weak details Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Fredrik - 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}
518 Does everything well at a welcome savings. Product: NN4 Starter Package Factory Irregular (F9419) Posted By: Riley Iwamoto - Honestly I haven't closely scrutinized the unit but can't tell from casual use what made this a factory irregular. It's worked perfectly since I received it. Fanotec shipped promptly and it arrived quite swiftly although UPS gave me some grief. The included rotational increments on each rail are well matched to every setup I will use and most conventional users' needs (though now I can see why a leveler would have been a good investment). It's sturdy yet lightweight with no fluff.  The one issue I've had in use is more to do with my tripod's weak locks: the NN4 seems leverage my small D5200's weight, causing my tripod's upper pivots to flop around, but I suppose that's a caveat of panoramic heads in general. I'm sure once I start using a stronger tripod head I'll be happy as a clam.  In all, a great piece of equipment for beginning pano photographers.
517 Clean, simple, functional. Product: Nadir Adapter for NN3 NN4 NN5 (F9125) Posted By: Riley Iwamoto - Works as advertised. Craftsmanship is solid. As Unknown stated, the short distance it moves the camera away from the tripod does not completely eliminate the presence of a leg or two in your shot and it places considerable leveraged stress on your tripod head (mine has relatively weak locks in the top so it tips when even my compact slr is swiveled out). Still, it's a rather inconspicuous addition to my NN4 setup, fitting in the case while attached to the vertical rail, and I expect it will be useful when I want to bracket a nadir shot.
516 Works as Described  Product: Nadir Adapter for NN3 NN4 NN5 (F9125) Posted By: N/A
515 Nice head, works fine  Product: EZ Leveler II no Case (F3138) Posted By: Zepedro Russo NN5 is a nice head, but NN4 is simple perfect for this kind of head. Is very precise and is all you need for 360. The starter rotator works perfect. RD's is just for Gigapixel when you get NN4 Starter.
514 Ultimate M1-L w/RD16-II Product: Ultimate M1-L w/RD16-II (F8102) Posted By: Wolfgang Fuchs, Germany - Usually I do not write reviews, but for this article I am so impressed that I'm writing it to word!  - Long I have considered whether I opt for Novoflex or Nodal Ninja. The latter system I have now and am amazed about the stability and functionality of the Ultimate M1-L w/RD16-II.  The Nikon D700 with battery grip and the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70 mm 1:2,8 G ED is already a difficult combination, but the weight is a problem in any way and the RD16 rotator-II runs smooth. I wish to highlight even the excellent craftsmanship and the full Arca Swiss compatibility was very important for me. So I can the system without restriction and with full marks recommend. In der Regel schreibe ich keine Rezensionen, aber von diesem Artikel bin ich so sehr beeindruckt das ich mich doch zu Wort melde! Lange habe ich überlegt ob ich mich für Novoflex oder Nodal Ninja entscheide. Letzteres System habe ich nun und bin überwältigt über die Stabilität und Funktionalität des Ultimate M1-L w/RD16-II. Die Nikon D700 mit Batteriegriff und das AF-S NIKKOR 24-70 mm 1:2,8G ED ist ja schon eine schwere Kombination, aber das Gewicht ist in keinster Weise problematisch und der Rotator RD16-II läuft butterweich. Hervorheben möchte ich noch die exzellente Verarbeitung und die volle Arca Swiss Kompatibilität die für mich sehr wichtig war. Somit kann ich das System ohne Einschränkung und mit voller Punktzahl weiter empfehlen.
513 Good product  Product: Nadir Adapter for NN3 NN4 NN5 (F9125) 
512 Posted By: Dariusz This is one of those products that saves you time and makes your life easier. It is well built. I highly recommended it.
511 Superb rotator Product: Advanced Rotator RD16 (F1150) Posted By: Dariusz Amazing product. The quality is first class and it works exactly as advertised. I wanted to save a few bucks and bought the factory irregular one and I don't regret it. I highly recommend it.
510 Solid pano head Product: NN4 No Lower Rotator Factory Irregular (F9422) Posted By: Dariusz 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.
509 A must have add-on Product: EZ Leveler II with Case (F3140) Posted By: Dariusz - EZ Leveler II is a great, well built product. It is a must have add-on for anyone who needs to quickly and precisely level a pano head. I would give it 5 stars if the locking knob in the middle of the EZ Leveler II was bigger and easier to turn (lock). Highly recommended.
508 The rotator that handles your manual gigapixel panos with ease. Product: Ultimate M2 with RD8-II Rotator (F8001) Posted By: Gavin Farrell - The circumference of this rotator provides the perfect distance between detents so when you're shooting and need those precise well marked increments/steps you'e got them. Because the detent steps are clearly marked and spaced out more then the other rotators they're EASIER TO SEE and thereby retain your position in the sequence. If you're looking to use a 300mm/400mm Telephoto lens for manually shooting a gigapixel panorama this rotator will speed up your workflow with less chance for error.
507 Great for 360 Panos Product: Ultimate R1 Adjustable Tilt Ring Mount Package (F6120) Posted By: Archmaster - When I first opened the box and started reading the literature detailing how to setup the pano head, I became very frustrated. The literature was very confusing and I would recommend hiring a professional to give it a makeover. That being said, I worked my way through the setup with my Sigma 8mm lens and Nikon D800. The next day I set out to test the new head taking 4 shot panos with a +5 tilt. After the initial setup, assembly in the field was quick and easy. I liked the rotating set points. A great time saver. I found the head to be solidly built and didn't have any issues with any of my setting shifting while handling the camera during the day's shoot. Once I was back in the office, the stitching results using PTGui were outstanding! If all you want to do is 360 panos, this is a great head.
506 Rock Solid and easy to use Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Bill Heller - 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.
505 Excelent quality Product: T adapter III with 30mm offset (F9213) Posted By: N/A - It was a nice surprise to see the great quality and design this product has.
504 First impression Product: Ultimate M1-L w/RD16-II (F8102) Posted By: Tom Smider - I just receive my Ultimate ML-1/L and first impression is fantastic. I can not wait till tomorrow to test it. Thanks Nodal!
503 GTPs - this what you need to take 360 Panos Product: Google Ultimate R10 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini Package(GTPPKG) Posted By: Jeff Finkelstein - Customer Paradigm - 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.
502 EZ Leveler makes it really simple to micro-adjust and get 100% level Product: EZ Leveler II no Case (F3138) Posted By: Jeff Finkelstein - Customer Paradigm - I'm a bit of a control freak, and to use a ball head to level 100% can be difficult, especially when you have a large lens and camera on top that throws it all off. You try to get the bubble, but it keeps shifting. What I love about the EZ-Leveler II is that it's easy to micro-adjust the level, without having to worry about a ballhead slipping and moving. All you need to do is use your thumb to move one of the three dials, and you're all set. I've actually used this, with a ballhead on top of it, and found great results. (I've also not used the ballhead, and just used the tripod legs to level everything pretty closely, too.) The materials and build are outstanding. The whole piece has a solid feel to it. I've spent the $$ on a high-end DSLR, lenses, and a tripod, and this doesn't disappoint. This is now permanently attached to my tripod.
501 Excellent Package Product: NN4 Starter Package (F4500) Posted By: Lukas Web Programming - The Nodal Ninja 4 starter package works flawlessly, is easy to setup and allows me to take excellent 360 panos. It is an excellent value and the service from the folks at Nodal Ninja is excellent to say the least! Highly recommend this package and the company overall.
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 - Peter O. Ireland
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. - Hugh - NN forum
498 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. Thanks Nick, mine arrived yesterday and has made using the NN3 MKII even easier!  - Hugh - NN forum
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 - Robert H. UK (Nikon D3)
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. - Jeff N - USA
495 Bill, Thanks for sending them so promptly. Sorry again for all the confusion surrounding this procurement, and we appreciate your patience and business. Sincerely, James D. - California Department of Transportation
494 Simply amazing! :) Just received my Nodal Ninja 5 w/ R16 Rotator and Easy Leveller II. Very easy setup... just took moments... Thanks Rob for all your help. - vibes35, Nodal Ninja Forum
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. - patella - Nodal Ninja forum
492 Hi Bill, First off, I LOVE your products. After shooting tours with a [DELETED] for years my new R1 is a welcome relief in size and weight, and has more functionality (but you know all that). - Andrew J, San Diego CA

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

477 Bill, Thanks for all the great help. I did order two NN180's to use with our current P5100 & FC-E8 set up. Out of the box these NN180's are sharp and solid, so I'm impressed. Thanks again, - Erick R.
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). How timely, as I want to shoot a bunch of panos of our beautiful Maine coast this weekend; and you didn't let me down! Thanks guys! - Gary S. Maine USA
475 Hi Rob, Thanks a million for all our help... and for the upgrade...I have read about your excellent customer service and with Mauro and you, I have now experienced it. You guys are first class... thanks again and keep the good work...I am sure that in a few months I will go for the Ninja 5 which is what I really want! Saludos, - Carlos Z. Mexico
474 last week I received my pole for panoramic work. set at 6 meter this is the first real test I made. The R1 is amazing! I would like to thank Nodal ninja for their support and amazing tools. Guys you are like family to me! - discocandy, Nodal Ninja forum
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 (NN 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. - cgerrells, (Nodal Ninja Forum)
471 Nick: Your innovation and customer relations should be a model for other businesses. I love my new RD8 rotator. A real home run! Season's greetings, - Tim E. (Nodal Ninja forum)
470 Hello, I've had my NN for about 2 months now and love it. I'm also using the R-D8 lower rotator. Thanks - jeremyes (Nodal Ninja forum)
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! - VinkoCM (Nodal NInja forum)
468 I love my NN3 pano head: handy, quick and precise. - ti360 (Nodal Ninja forum)
467 I love love love the RD-16. What an amazing piece of hardware that is, and I can't wait to take some panos with it. Hats off to you gentlemen for making it. - tailwinds (Nodal Ninja forum
466 Hi Bill, Nick, I love my NN3 MKII and have been using it for a couple of months with great success! - rstone (NN forum)
465 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)
464 My First NN panos: I got my NN5 this week and I finally had the chance to try it out. I LOVE IT - Stuman (NN forum)
463 I recently got my NN3 MKII...love it compared to what I had before (the [DELETED])! It has been a great addition to my camera bag of tricks. My primary use for the NN3 MKII is for mosaic images pano's. - jldt706 (NN forum)
462 I am working with Nodal Ninja 2 Head and I will soon upgrade my gear to NN5. Its light its fast and I love it!! - giorgosmg (NN forum)
461 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 - johnny236 (NN forum)
460 Great, this is why I love Nodal Ninja! Thanks Bill - mikexm (NN forum)
459 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 
458 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
457 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. - Charles L. South Africa (D700 Nikon 10.5mm lens R1 pano head) 
456 Bill Bailey, This was really helpful! I did my first test shot and had the pano made in 15 minutes! This is a great product! Thanks! - Steve B. Ohio, USA
455 Bill and Rob, My Ultimate R1 arrived this morning and it is BEAUTIFUL! Thanks again so much for your graciousness and professionalism. I'm looking forward to using the R1 right away and spreading good words about it! Have a great weekend! ~mark  - Mark S. USA 
454 Very impressed with your trade-in program; refund was processed within 2 days  - Larry L. USA
453 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)
452 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)
451 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)
450 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) 
449 Same here… - Bigwade (Panoguide forum)
448 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, - Freddy (Panoguide froum)
447 I'll add my endorsement as well! It is great to see a company that believes in customer service. Thanks.  - Tim E. (Panoguide forum) 
446 yes i totally agree with all the positive feedback about nodal ninja.  - fatchai (Panoguide froum) 
445 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) 
444 thank you again. your customer service is simply the best! - Gorana J. MD USA 
443 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! - Joan P. Spain 
442 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, - Julian K Austria 
441 Rob: Once again, NN sets itself apart with superb customer service... Thanks, - Tim E. USA 
440 Hello Rob We are back now from out trip in Canada. Thank you for your courtesy. As we left the Vancouver Island, we picked up the parcel at the hotel on our way to the Rocky Mountains. 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 
439 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.  - JEFFREY R. Base Photographer Abacus Technology Corp. FE Warren AFB 
438 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, - Hugh A. UK 
437 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! - Greg U. USA 
436 Bill, The Nodal Ninja is working out extremely well (Fantastic)! Turned this average photographer into a pro.Thanks for all your help, - Stan R. Alabama USA 
435 Hey Rob Nodal Ninja arrived today, and I really like it, afraid my old NN will unemployed soon.Thanks again for the great prize, I promise I will put it to very good use :) I will put it to very good use this summer greetings - Markus O. USA 
434 Mauro:I have to admit this is the BEST customer service web site. I'll work on what you said and let you know. Thanks. - Suzanne J. Montana USA 
433 Hi Heinz,....Thanks in advance for the info, the world is a better place with people like you around! - Jake B (NN Forum) 
432 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 
431 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 
430 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 prduct, excellent service - happy customer. - Steven F. Nevada USA 
429 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
428 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. - Mok O. MA USA 
427 Hi Bill, The R1 is amazing, and its so easy to use, a great replacement to my iPIX rotator!! Take a look, I bet they will look great on your office monitor. - Jeff H. Phoenix Arizona USA 
426 Hello Bill and Rob, Received today after a break on the Cayman Islands my order. Thanks a lot. So far, I unpacked it and installed it quickly. Really, I’m overwhelmed. I love tech stuff and to look at 3 different devices build together, wow. So I’m going to try it out soon and will let you know my experiences. Again thanks a lot. Greetings, - Rob v.d.V Cayman Islands 
425 Hi Mauro and Bill. It works beautifully and seems solid -Very nice! Thanks a lot for your support! Kind regards - Michael v. R. Denmark 
424 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) 
423 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. Thank you, Daniel K. USA (Canon 5D + 24-70L) 
422 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! - Charles C. USA 
421 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  - Toby B Australia 
420 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 
419 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 - Hubert G. Berlin, Germany (Nikon D3 12-24mm lens) 
418 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 - Bill H. New York USA
417 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 - Mark F. USA
416 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  2nd followup: 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, Dave T California USA 
415 Hi Bill,Thanks for the quick reply. I think you'd have to be sleeping with your computer to have replied much quicker. Anything within 24 hours is pretty quick these days. NN customer support is still the benchmark IMHO. Best regards, - Dave S. USA
414 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, - Yannis Italy
413 Just would like to share what your product is helping create. Thanks for a wonderfully well made and easy to use peice of a equipment.  - Gary W. USA (Nikon D200, Sigma 14mm lens) 
412 Bill, Thanks again for the call and for taking care of this. I appreciate the great customer service. I will definitely recommend the ninja to my friends. Thanks Again, - Aaron K. USA
411 Howdy! Got my NN3MkII on the 25th! Thank you, great looking piece of kit ... looking forward to using it :) Cheers! - Kevin H. USA 
410 ....and btw...your (either you or Nick) way of handling customers complaint/inquery at some forums really appeals to me....somehow it convinced me that should i be your customer...i don't have to worry should i have some issue on the products....:) well....hope to hear from you again...:) Have a good day..:) Cheers, - Riefa I. Indonesia 
409 Thank you Bill. The service you have provided me has been outstanding.  -Edwin J. USA 
408 ...received the Nodal Ninja today. First impressions...Good; 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  2nd followup: Have been using the Nodal ninja for over a month now. It cas completely replaced my manfrotto 303sph + leveling base. It produces consistantly excellent results with the minimum of effort. WELL DONE.. .regards - Peter O. Ireland 
407 Thank you Bill. The service you have provided me has been outstanding.  - Edwin J. USA 
406 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. - Fern T. UK 
405 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. - Richard C. UK
404 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. - Karel G. USA
403 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! - Johannes, Italy
402 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. - Peter W. New Zealand (Nikon 10.5mm) 
401 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. - Ryan C. USA (Panasonic LX3, Olympus E-3-502) 
400 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! - eBay User 
399 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. - Walter C. USA 
398 I am already a very satisfied customer, having bought quite a lot from you in the past. Great stuff! - Christian T. Germany
397 Rob, thanks for the quick fix on my order. I appreciate the express ship even though it wasn't necessary.Cheers - Tony R. USA
396 Hi Bill,I just got this. Already placed the order, received the NN5, and used it a bunch. Thanks a bunch! Great product. - Richard W. - Flickr
395 I'll be honest in satying I was going to buy the best and probably the most expensive pano head, it was a [deleted]. After reading about thier poor support and realizing they might not be in business much longer I decided to shop around a bit more. Mauro was very quick to answer my questions and actually convienced me to go with one of your smaller heands
394 Hey Guys, Things are working well with my new gear and not sorry at all I went you over [deleted]. I saved a few bucks as well. Thanks - Ernie R. USA
393 Here's my first panorama with my new NN3MKII. I'm very please with my purchase, great rig! - drflash - Nodal Ninja Forum 
392 Hey Mauro, I like all of your help, it has made me more secure in finding the right head for me. I took your advice and bought a NN5L and it does evenything I need it to do. It is simple to setup, good idea with stops, and I know it will last many years becuase of the build quality. I will tell people I know about your items. Very best. - Jesus T. Mexico (Nikon D3)
391 Nick, your commitment to quality and precision are worth recognition. I have the Nodal Ninja model #5 with one of your new rotatos, the R-D12. I love the fuild movement of rotation and the precision is spot on. This is a beautiful pice of gear. Regards, - Charles G. Ireland 
390 Dear NN - great product (NN5L)- great price - great company - thank you - Bill T. New Zealand
389 Just a quickie to let you all know of the great service I've had from the Scottish reseller www.360tacticalvr.com. I first contacted them just before Christmas to inquire of NN5 availability to be told that they were out of stock until the New Year BUT that I could have an NN3 loan unit over the holidays. What service. I've now taken delivery of the NN5 and can't wait to get out there with it. - Brendan M.. Edinburgh. Scotland. UK. - Nodal Ninja Forum 
388 I can confirm the great service from red door. I ordered a NN3 with rd12 and since it was out of stock they offered me a NN5 at discounted price, great comunication too with the staff. Regards, - Davide - Nodal Ninja Forum 
387 Dear Nodal Ninja, I just thought that I would drop a quick message here to let you know of the great service I received from one of your resellers, Red Door VR. Last year I purchased a Nodal Ninja 5 Lite from them with the idea of upgrading it when the upgrade was released. When you announced your upgrade program here I contacted them asking what I would need to do. They promptly informed me that as soon as they had received the stock from yourselves they would announce their own upgrade program. Just before Christmas I was informed of the process, signed up and at the beginning of January they told me which bits to send where. I dispatched my parcel to them and the next working day, when they received it, they were good enough to drop me an email to let me know that it made it to them safely. After the upgrade they again emailed me giving me a tracking number if needed. It wasn't as it turned up safely the next day. After my experiences with Red Door VR, I would be more than happy to recommend them to others.  - Robert B. UK - Nodal Ninja Forum 
386 Bill, 'After reading Panoguide forums and several reviews of your products, your prompt attention and kindness are exactly what I expected from your company. Please accept my sincere thanks. Keep up the great work!' - Tim W. UK
385 OK, thank you a lot Bill, I just bought the NN5 Complete package that you have with the R16 Rotator. I received a email today saying that it was shipped to me. Thank you one more time, the costumer support and your fast respond is outstanding, I'm impressed.  - Ernest F. USA
384 Hello Bill, Wow,thank you! What can I say? I am running out of words. This is really "the extra mile" - and longer. I do not take it for granted. - Christian T. USA 
383 Rob, Thanks again so much for your incredible personalized service. - Jon A. USA 
382 Bill: The RD 8 Is a very nice piece of work. No slop and no worries about tensioning the knob. Just level and shoot!  - Tim E. USA
381 Hi Nick,I received from Hong-Kong your special 1/4" QR plate for my non threaded [deleted] clamp.....I don't know how many times I could write "Thank you"... "Thank you"... "Thank you"... Very well done....Best regards to you Nick. Also to Bill and Rob. Among others, I've choosed to buy a NodalNinja pano head. Now, I really know why. - Marc C. Paris - France
380 Thanks Bill. I knew you'd come through for me.I must say that it's very refreshing to find any company that really takes pride in their customer service. It really makes you guys stand out from the crowd. Having been a Technical Sales Rep. for many years in the Dental industry, this is one of my pet peeves. It's a lot easier to lose a customer than it is to gain one. Best, - Dave S. USA
379 Dear Mr Bill, Thanks for your quick reply.Your company is small as you say, but your product is fantastic and also is robust, and in terms of quality and price it beats every big daddy's out there, so I just love NN. - Satinder R. India
378 Hi Bill – Thanks for the speedy reply. I had heard you actually give a damn about your customers - I am glad to have experienced this first hand. - Doc B. USA
377 Hi Bill, Just received my Nodal Ninja. This is one beautiful piece of work! After reading all the glowing comments on the various Pano sites, all I can say is most are understated.  - Fred B. USA
376 AMAZON.COM - 5 out of 5 stars - simply WOW I got this package to be able to shoot full spherical panos. Its great! light weight, and the packaging is beautiful. Best of all, its price is unbeatable compared to other pano heads and the quality delivered. To top it off, outstanding customer service from Fanotec. I use it with my Canon 40D + EFS 10-22 / Sigma 8 FE. no issues at all. 
375 Hi Bill What excitement !! The NN5 has just arrived at my desk in Q8. It's a thing of beauty and quality and I can't wait to get it home and put it through its paces. Already I have a few ideas here in Q8 to test it out on. I will probably set it up for the Sigma 12-24mm. I'll post the results if they pass Quality Assurance ;) Thanks again Regards - Dave E. Kuwait (Q8) 
374 AMAZON.COM - 5 out of 5 stars AWESOME - By R. W. (Sunny Florida) Best price for a Pano QTVR head you will find. Great customer service. I just upgraded to the NN5 (it supports SLR cameras with a battery grip. GREAT PRODUCTS!!! 
373 AMAZON.COM 5 out of 5 stars Best affordable panoramac head on the market. - By Lincoln G. "infinity_plus_one" (herenow) I am a professional virtual tour photographer. I have shot over 1,300 virtual tours. I have tried numerous panoramic heads, including [deleted], [deleted] and custom fabricated models. The Nodal Ninja performs better than the [deleted] and nearly identical to the $900 [deleted]. However, the Nodal Ninja is about 1/4 the size and weight, and breaks down small enough to fit into your pocket. I highly recommend the Nodal Ninja 3. For the price you can't find a better panoramic tripod head. No quality heads are lighter or more compact. You can't go wrong with this product. 
372 I'd like to say that my first impression of the NN5 is AWESOME! What a great piece of hardware! I'm pretty excited to get out and give it a try. Cheers - Russ O. Canada 
371 Hi Bill, I already received a note from your shipping team. Thanks so much! You guys really deserve the praise on the internet for your service! - Jonathan Z. California 
370 Not sure you need any more testimonials but here's mine. I bought the NN3 MKII and I do Real Estate VT's. This makes the job so much easier and makes my panoramas go stitch together automatically. I don't know how I was doing this without a pano head and thatnks to you guys my work as stepped up 10 notches. If anyone is considering geting into panoramic photography let me save you the time and trouble to shop around. I've done the shopping, done the research, and contacted other vendors. Nodal Ninja was the best for the money and I am in no way sorry for my purchase. Bill Bailey with Nodal Ninja has helped me to understand my needs but wasn't pushy in trying to sell me more than I needed. I wanted the NN5 but he convinced me to go for the NN3 MKII for my camera. Thanks Bill. - Nathan K. Miami Florida Nikon (D200 and Sigma 8mm) 
369 I am very impressed with the construction and tight tolerances with the unit and ease of setting up. I know that my money has been well spent and this unit will give me many years of service. Thank you - Dan D. California USA 
368 Hi Bill, What a great surprise! Just got back to work from my Germany Trip, and there it's sitting on my desk! Shiny NN5! And what a beautiful piece of engineering! Rocksolid rotator. And I love the material on the knobs.....really hard and solid. Awesome! - Christian B. California USA 
367 Woo-hoo - got my Nodal Ninja #5 and I'm happier than a pig in [expletive deleted]. This is just what I'm been needing, sturdy, well engineered and sexy. Thanks guys!!! - Tony G. Montana (Nikon D3 w/ 12-24) 
366 You guys are ridiculous - seems a bit over the top (OTT) with support. Sure I lost a knob (my fault) but damn Bill driving 30 minutes across town to delivery it personally is the type of support I would never expect from anyone. You really do take a special pride in not only the products you sell but in also making us feel special. Clever keeping a box of products in your car, the EZ-Leveler is a sweet little accessory. I will surely recommend Nodal Ninja to anyone who asks. Thank again for OTT service :-) And oh, btw, thanks for the pointers. - Alan W. Scottsdale AZ (Nikon D3 w/ 12-24mm lens) 
365 Rob Van Gils....Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, and with such enthusiasm. Very refreshing....Director of Shipping, and Customer Support Trainee of the month I say! - Ryan M. Japan 
364 Just wanted to thank everybody helping out a newbie…After 1,5 weeks after I recived my NN3 MKII I'm was able to make this 360x180 panorama. A special thanks to john Houghton Regards - Touareg - Nodal Ninja Forum 
363 I love my NN3 pano head: handy, quick and precise.  - ti360 - Nodal Ninja Forum
362 This tool is so handy to use!! Just love it!! - discocandy - Nodal Ninja Forum 
361 very much thankful to NN for giving such a fast and robust head platform. my few months back shoot i am posting first time at NN3 forum. used 2 nn3 for more than 2.5 year and ordered new nn3 mk2 receiving tomorrow. Thank you again bill. - atomicmak - Nodal Ninja Forum 
360 The NN5 (full model) performed perfectly with the long exposure times (normal was 1.6 seconds). - John - Nodal Ninja Forum (40D + Tokina 10-17mm ) 
359 NNL5 is great value for money. Solid built and works perfectly. The only thing which I miss is (cm) scale on one side of lower arm. Beside that NNL5 is flawless. Customer service is superb, the parcel with NNL5 reached my doorstep in less than 5 days (USA--.)Poland), everything nicely wraped and secured. - Jack S. - Poland (Canon 5D & EF 17-40 f/4) 
358 I just wanted to say thank you for an outstanding product and even better customer service. I have had 2 phone conversations with you (one before I purchased my NN5L and the other right after) and both times I was really struck by your patience and your professionalism. You and your product are in a class by your/ themselves....Thank you so much for your time and your excellent product and service. Sincerely, - Kamran S. UA (Nikon D300 10.5mm, 12-24mm, 18-200mm, 80-200mm) 
357 hi Bill, I bought my nodal ninja from you last november and took it to Antarctica the next month. It worked out great and I know have some very large, very high definition prints of the spectacular landscapes there. thanks for this great product! - Joe H. - Antarctica 
356 I had a small glitch in my NN5L order placed today. Bill made it right .... I'll just say I am a great fan of Bill & NN even before I receive my NN5L. Customer service BETTER than it should be! - MisterMo - Nodal Ninja Forum 
355 Bill, You're a model of customer service! A class act. Let me know if I can do anything for you. Thanks - Ed G. USA 
354 Yes, support from the NN team is outstanding in every way. If there a question or problem, they make it right - FAST! - Macro - Nodal Ninja Forum 
353 I would echo the comments: I had purchased my NN3 via a UK reseller, and to cut a long story short the horizontal arm got damaged with usage, nothing wrong with the product it just took a heavy whack that bent the arm. I emailed NN3 for advice and very quickly got a replacement arm delivered through the mail. To say that I was impressed would be an understatement. Customer service that is way beyond what I expect and I look forward to making future purchases. (well, apart from actually parting with cash, never did like that bit) - Ped - Nodal Ninja Forum 
352 I would like to add my thanks to the Ninja team! As a new customer who purchased a NN3 and then decided to return it and upgrade to the NN5L, I have had an excellent customer experience. Mauro and Bill have been very responsive to my questions and my new NN5L is winging its way towards me Thanks - emac50 - Nodal Ninja Forum 
351 Here's my first panorama with my new NN3MKII. I'm very please with my purchase, great rig ! - drflash - Nodal Ninja Forum 
350 I have to say, you do nothing but amaze more and more :) Thank you very much for the super quick reply. I know the settings come with the CD attached to the package but the moment I got my NN5L I was on my way to Singapore and I only had with me the MacAir which does not have CDrom. I followed the link provided below and found what I needed. Did one simple test and it came out superb. I mean, the quality of my image are not as good as other Panoguide forum members but the stitching was flawless on first try. I didn't need to do much adjustments using the PTGui PRO. Normally I had lots of problems fixing problems and really hard time setting up my (deleted) you wouldn't be able to imagine. I have to say, your product and support really is worth every single dollar. Thank you very much :) best regards - Sebastian P. - USA 
349 Hi Bill- I spoke to you on the phone this morning about the 5L. I made the order and now I see that you've already shipped it- thank you so much for that super quick work. I'll have plenty of time to get used to using it. If you ever decide to add a customer gallery feature to your site I would be happy to contibute to it. Anyhow- thanks again for the great service.  - Greg R. - USA 
348 Bill, Thanks for the great support of your product!... All the best, - Paul H. - USA 
347 I want to thank you for your quick super service. It was way more than I ever expected but with a great product you guys are full of surprises!.... Thanks again for the great service and such a great product. - John C. - USA 
346 It arrived yesterday! Again, thank you for all your help..... I can't wait to get it out in the field! I'm stoked! - Appreciatively, Gilles D. - USA 
345 Thank you, Bill. That was unexpected and exceptionally nice of you. I am exceedingly happy with the NN5L. It is really a quality piece of gear. Sincerely, - Steve D. - Arkansas USA 
344 Rob, Thanks for the quick response and the upgrade on shipping !!!! Now I know why people say good things about Nodal Ninja ! I'm anxious to get start using my NN3MKII. Thanks again, - Rich D. - USA 
343 Rob, I can't say enough about how spectacular your customer service is. I wish I worked for your company. Thank you so much, I really appreciate your tremendous responsiveness. I look forward to sending you guys some samples of the work I create with my NN. Thank you! - Brad F. - USA 
342 Mauro, The NN5 and EZ-leveler arrived today. Kudos to Bill for calling me on my cell phone Friday to tell me he had both in stock. That sort of customer service really impressed me. I am even MORE impressed by the actual product. Both the NN5 and EZ-leveler are beautifully machined, precision tools. After seeing the NN5 in person I don't know why anyone would buy a cheap plastic imitation or pay MORE for the competitor's version. There is no doubt in my mind I made a very wise purchase! Please compliment Bill on getting me these products so quickly - well in advance of my shoot. Now I just need to figure out the logistics of creating spherical pano's! It has been a true pleasure doing business with you. - Bob Miano - USA 
341 I've had my NN3 since last October, and I am so, so pleased with it. I have done many 360/180 panos with it, plus a number of high-res mosaics, and I really cannot fault it. It's light in weight and compact, and simply does the job! Congratulations to you and Nick on a superb product. Kind regards - Andrew H. - UK 
340 Thank you Bill, I've heard alot about you and your excellent costomer service via online forums and word of mouth. You simply dealt with my problem quickly and without and issues, thank you so much, I can now go back to my daily routine without having to worry about this problem.... Thanks again. Sincerely - Will Chang - USA 
339 Bill I appreciate you telling me what other companies are in the market. I've looked at them all and see for my 5D your 5L will give me exactly what I need. What's with [deleted]? Man don't tell people they even exist, totally negative vibes, it's like they could care less about customers. Slow to answer emails, condescending remarks like they don't care about “me”. The heads behind the heads are as, if not more, important than the heads themselves. I looked at some the forums you suggested, not really a chatty chap myself, but I see others speak as I do about [deleted]. Thank you for addressing my concerns, perfect! I wish you great success - Chuck J. USA (Canon 5D 17-40mm) 
338 Thank you guys, I got the NN3 yesterday in my hotel. And I love this tool.....Greeting from LA - Norman S. - Germany 
337 I am very impressed with the quality of your products and great customer service!!.... Thanks for all your help. - Rome H. Maine - USA 
336 The NN5 is a Superior System, beautifully machined, amazingly strong, and amazingly well thought out. The speed it sets up and the portability combine to make this is a real winner. I love the stops because they are easy to adjust and positive without using undue force that might accidentally move something off line on the tripod, or the tripod itself depending on the terrain..... For the first time user the NN5 is a no brainer to put into action. Nevertheless, I am glad you have meticulous instructions for changing the indent rings, washers, and whatever I have yet to encounter as they are quite detailed from a quick read. Again finding the nodal point and setting up has never been any easier because nothing is moving while I change my setting; this made it a snap with a lens I had not used before for a mosaic. My compliments Bill to you and Nodal Ninjas on making a system that is strong and fits in my bag. I am all smiles here! I will definitely want the stop upgrade on the vertical arm when it is available. Thanks for your help and look forward to a long relationship.  - Rodney O. - Georgia USA (Nikon D300 w/ 28-135mm lens) 
335 I already sent you positive feedback shortly after I received my NN3, but now that I've been using it for several weeks, I really wanted to tell you how much I appreciate (love) it! It's so easy to use that I don't even have to think about it. Is there a better definition of a good tool? It just does what it's supposed to and does it so well! It small and light, yet strong enough and clearly well made. I've been taking more panos than ever when I was using one of your competitors tools. Hey, can you design and build my next car!? Thanks! A very satisfied customer - Sy B. - USA 
334 Just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks. It took the NN3 less than 4 days to arrive (Japan), tested it last week end and i'm really happy with this purchase. It's worth every penny. Thanks again, and i'm looking forward to the NN5 when i upgrade my DSLR Cheers! - SamSed - Nodal Ninja Forum 
333 I bought my Nodal Ninja about three years ago. I have the first model, which have always been working great up to this day. I now own a 40D and it still does the job ! I am not a pro, but I like to be able to make the best possible panoramic photos, and in order to do that I really needed a device such as the nodal ninja… Inexpensive compared to others, and very easy to use. It is invaluable and I couldn't have made my panoramas without it. The new models are more expensive but as I've read, they offer a great deal of improvements. So that'd be great if I could win one of these top of the art goodies :-D Keep up the good work, Phil. - TheJuice - Nodal Ninja Forum 
332 In praise of nice workmanship . . .My NN3 II was shipped quickly from Rosauro and I couldn't believe the quality when I unpacked it ! (Even my wife was impressed at the 'microscope precision' look of everything) I sat in my car in front of the post office and just stared at the looks of this BEAUTY. The concept and implementation are superb. The black case is very nice and functional too. (I don't usually appreciate when a product comes with a case to make it look 'special') BRAVO !! The EZ-leveler is awesome! I used to mess with my tripod constantly to level it up, now I just make sure the tripod is "level-ish" and then use the ez leveller to adjust quickly. Can't beat it! - Wide-Eyed - Nodal Ninja Forum 
331 I recently purchased the NN5 and it's definitely a beefy unit! I have my Canon 40D with WFT-E3A wifi grip on it. I just got my pneumatic air mast (for pole aerial photography) and did a few trial runs. I sent the mast up with a motorized pan/tilt head, with the NN5 and Canon40D/WFT-E3A on it, that's about 10lbs of gear. At 49 feet (fully extended) it worked great, eventhough I did have guy wires on the mast and it was leaning over a few feet (that means even more force on the joints on the NN5) It worked flawlessly! - spyboy - Nodal Ninja Forum 
330 The combination between NN3 and the appropriate software convinced me that this panoramic head was just for me - especially after I had the opportunity to try the new MKII rotator thanks to your new dealer in Bulgaria. Probably my next purchase will be exactly MKII. I am quite pleased with it and with the last NN3 version on the whole. The new accessory products you have been developing recently also make excellent impression to me. - rico_e1 - Nodal Ninja Forum 
329 I had purchased my NN3 via a UK reseller, and to cut a long story short the horizontal arm got damaged with usage, nothing wrong with the product it just took a heavy whack that bent the arm.

328 Man I cannot believe I spent all this money on a (deleted). The [deleted] is great but try getting some help from [deleted]. I'm only sorry I did not see the NN5L earlier. I don't have deep pockets but went out and bought your Nodal Ninja. I appreciate you guys being there, when I have a question you are quick to answer. This is important for me from a professional standpoint. Now I have to try and sell my [deleted] and see they do not hold there value. I learned the hard way. Thank you NN team. - Barry B. New York NY (Canon 1ds - various lens) 
327 Thank you very much for a great product and an informative forum. I attended Jook Leung's first-ever 360 Degree Panoramic Workshop at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine in April. We all tried out various pano brackets and most ended up using the Nodal Ninja. It works (extremely well). Thanks for your incredible "support", Bill. - haroldro - Montreal Canada - Nodal Ninja Forum 
326 Hi, 2 years ago, I bought a Nodal Ninja SPH2 model. I know ...you will tell me that it is now a vintage piece... but it works just perfect. - saraniel - Nodal Ninja Forum 
325 Again, you went the extra mile when you really didn't have to. I really appreciate it. - Tarick F. USA 
324 I just spent two days working with friend who has been shooting VR professionally for years. It appears as if Nodal Ninja is the WAY TO GO!  Just waiting for the IRS check to arrive and stimulate us out of this depression.  Ninja is a great solution to real problem for anyone serious about VR. - Diver George - Nodal Ninja Forum 
323 Your Staff have been wonderful to deal with, which means more to me than a low price item or a purchaseable item without support. Thank you! - Vince K. USA 
322 Had a chance to use my new NN3II on the ninth of June with a Nikon D200 and a Nikor 10.5mm lens. The NN3II worked just great and very easy operation of 6 around for a 360 and one up for a zenith. On the 360 shots I did tilt the camera down 15 degrees. A fine piece equipment. Thanks Nick,  - Lanky - Nodal Ninja Forum 
321 Hi Bill I'v received My NN5L today I'm very happy to start with NN5L + Nikon D300 +Nikkor 105mm Fishieye lens - Takezo - Nodal Ninja Forum 
320 Hi Bill, We love your bracket so much that we are getting a second set for our new Photographer. It is a great system and we are looking forward to seeing the new improved version! Thanks, - Maz H. New York USA 
319 Hello here from a very happy customer - first a NN2 SPH and then a NN3 (mk I) - and soon a NN5 that I am going to order without waiting for the result of this giveaway. When my NN2 was stolen with all my camera gear, it was one of the first things I ordered back (and Bill was incredibly nice). - sbprzd - Nodal Ninja Forum 
318 Thanks a lot that is much appreciated. We are looking at expanding our Virtual Tour team so later on in the month we will be ordering more. Thanks again for the great service Regards - Murray W. New York USA 
317 The new one arrived last week and it works perfectly! Thanks so much for the EXCELLENT customer service!! I am so impressed. - rebecca - Nodal Ninja Forum 
316 I bought an NN3 last year for my first trip to the National Parks of the Southwest (Zion, Bryce, Moab, etc). I'm not sure what I was impressed with most. The sights I saw or the ease of use and beautiful design of my NN3. Oh, and I brought back some awesome photographs, compliments of my NN3! - avpman - Nodal Ninja Forum 
315 Hello Bill, thanks for your mail. And thank you for that nice NodalNinja - panorama photography opened a new world for me and my NN3 helped me a lot to discover that world. And after more than 300 pictures my NN3 is still in a very good condition and working fine. But i can take a second NN3 when i'm taking pictures with friends and the can start making panoramas to :o). Thanks - Klaus F. Germany 
314 Thanks for the forum, it should allow me to shoot better. I bought my NN3 from France when it was just released but never had the time to really use it. I'm glad I kept it though! I knew I would put it to good use one day and enjoy it. By the way, I want to send my best regards to the guys who manufactured it and take good care of the forum and the website which are crystal clear. - Daedalus - Nodal Ninja Forum 
313 I'd like to thank you for your products, good ones but affordable ones ! Rare in the photographic world, especially panoramic one (and apologize for my poor english, too) - Fischer V. France (Canon 350D w/ 10-22mm) 
312 I found out about Nodal Ninja by reviewing some excellent panoramas on flickr, and I am hooked! after multiple recommendations I ordered the NN3 MKII without hesitation. thank you! - heavily - Nodal Ninja Forum 
311 Recieved my NN5L from rosaurophotography your Canadian Dealer. I am super impressed with the quality. - Gary J - Canada 
310 How some companies stay in business is beyond me. [deleted] is not customer oreinated so Im took my business to you guys. I have heard of your support which I havent needed because your ninja is perfect for me. Regards - Jerry W. Japan 
309 Hello, upgrading from NN3 to NN3II with the new rotator is a good deed ! The difference is amazing !  Smoother rotation, sharper clicks, easier to adjust, no vibration.Much better all round. Thanks for this evolution ! Cheers,  - Pepsi - Nodal Ninja Forum 
308 This is why I love these guys. Where else in the world can you get customer service like this? - chuxter - Nodal Ninja Forum 
307 Being very fond of free prizes (:-) i really thought i should add a message saying i just ordered a NN5L after several hours of research (like 60 or so over the last two months), the main competition was the [deleted] which would have ended at about the same price as the NN5L with shipping and everything, but the NN has the advantage of vertical shooting which the [deleted] has at a 40% higher price. Also the NN has recieved alot of good reviews and this forum shows a great deal of interest in me as a customer so i actaully feel safer buying a NN5L from you, half a world away, than a [deleted] from the local reseller, 15 kilometers away. - xtreme - Nodal Ninja Forum 
306 I'm useing a Nodal Ninja 3, fantastic product!!! Light, small, compact & easily transportable  - Kuczora - Nodal Ninja Forum 
305 Shameless plug for the NN3 (so I can get into the contest and win big. Although, I'm really very happy with the current NN3. Maybe one of those new rotors?) The NN3 is so small and light, that I was able to take it camping and hiking, and yet so accurate that I was able to template my first pano onto the following panos. Contol points? With the NN3, the word is "easy". Let PtGui generate 'em, then go to the control point table, highlight anything over 0.55 and delete it. - Kirk D. - Nodal Ninja Forum 
304 Thanks, Bill. Your package just arrived in Montreal. Everything looks great. Your gesture is very much appreciated. Your NN products are great---simple design and very well-made. Once I can figure out which model I need, and when they're available, I'll be ordering a pair of the newly-announced NN rotators. If it happens this summer, I'll be dealing through you, for shipment to my Maine summer place. Thanks again. All the best, - Harold Montreal Canada 
303 Just received my NN3. I can't say enough.I love it! Exceeds my expectations. Well made and just the right size so it doesn't get in the way. Thanks for a great product. - Sy B. USA 
302 I'm using the G9 now with the NN3. It works like a charm for spherical panos without a fisheye. It does take a LOT of pics to get there, but the quality is higher. I go that route because my output is to large format print. - Frate - Nodal Ninja Forum 
301 I like the versatile use of the NN5 a lot, for a high pole I shoot 5 images around with the panohead mounted on the Seitz VR Drive and a Canon 5D+shaved Tokina 10-17mm @14.6mm wit a downtilt -15 degree to get a nice leap in nadir. - Wim K.- Nodal Ninja Forum 
300 I recently became interested in doing panoramic photography. I asked 3 people for advice and all of them told me to get a Nodal Ninja! thank you for making my decision making easy. - Prunus - Nodal Ninja Forum 
299 I have one of the first NN5's...what a great product. Very impressed when I received it...craftmanship and materials are outstanding. Used it for a client the next week, generating a QTVR of the pano created of the inside of his restaurant. Very easy to use. I played with it the day prior, then shot the restaurant the next day. Images stitched wonderfully and everyone loved the pano & QTVR. It paid for itself on the first use. Thank you for a great product! Shocked - Rob P. Nodal Ninja Forum
298 Extremely happy with the Ninja! I've recommended it to a friend who runs a real estate photo shooting company. He'll be buying a nice collection of NN3s / NN5s to outfit his crew. - Degrey - Nodal Ninja Forum 
297 Gee - you guys keep improving on what I thought didn't need improving. I bought the MKII rotator for my 2 year old NN3 which by the way has been dropped and abused (sorry) and the thing works like new. The new rotator has much better feel and much easier to use not having to worry about the lock screw. Well done Nodal Ninja team! - Mike R. Texas (D70/ 10.5 Nikkor) 
296 hello, i bought the original and sold that to a friend to upgraded to the NN3. i love this unit, it is inexpensive (compared to most others on the market), well built and easy to use. i mainly create multi-row flat pan images and the NN3 has helped to speed up the stitching process with better alignment of the individual shots. thanks for coming out with such a great product.  - 1_special_k Nodal Ninja Forum 
295 I just couldn't bring myself to the nearly $1000 with all the bells. I decided to put together my own. I have the shop with all the tools to do this. I was in the process of ordering materials and some off the shelf parts when I found the NN 3 mkII. I put all my material purchases on hold and did some quick cost analysis. The result: I can't even buy the materials for an indexed head nodal panoramic head for what I just paid for the NN 3 mkII. Thats not counting what my time is worth to do all the machine work to put one together. For example the Manfrotto 300n indexing head currently sells for $180. Then you need 3 sliding rails and another way to index the upper head for multi-row panographs.  PS I used to do all this in the old days with a tripod with 360 degree markings and a long long long.... time in the darkroom ! Thanks for a great product(NN 3 mkII)..... - Carl C. - Nodal Ninja Forum 
294 I just received my NN3 after only 3 days of waiting. I must say that I am blown away by the quality of this product! This is a precision piece of equipment nicely packaged and well thought out. I am simply amazed! INCREDIBLE piece of engineering! Thank you so much for providing such a quality product at an affordable price. Can't wait to put it to use on my trip across Europe in a couple of weeks. Thanks again! - DeGrey - Nodal Ninja Forum 
293 Wow! That was fast and you and your company are AWESOME!!!!!.....However, seeing how you quickly take care of your customers here and in customer service and support through all the forums I've visited and seen you assisting other as well, I'm very confident in my decision to go with your product. I look forward to a very long relationship with you and Nodal Ninja, Thank you,  - Al M. Washingon USA 
292 I own several (deleted) models that are trash compared to the Nodal Ninja 3. Its tightness, precision and light weight make for simple, easy repeatable setups that yield excellent results. - ventifact - Nodal Ninja Forum 
291 I want to thank you for a quality product. Keep going! - Benedict K. USA 
290 I'm back in Korea from my month in Hawaii....I am happy to report that everything about my NN5L continues to work well and exceeded my expectations. - David H. Korea 
289 I got the new indent today. Thanks. Excellent customer service and an excellent product. I really like the NN3 MKII. Thanks - Dan A. USA 
288 I wanted to let you know I've received the NN3 and absolutely love it!  - Matt S. USA 
287 Hi, Nick, Bill and everyone who visit this forum, this is another success of the NN staff and a new place online to share with new nodal ninja users and panographers. This is what was missing the creat the perfect balance between a great product, an excellent service and an enthusiastic and increasing community of pano-makers. With the hope to share useful and interesting experiences, I send a greeting to all.- Luis Nodal Ninja Forum 
286 Hello, Nick, Bill & Everyone! "build it and they will come"... yes they will and im here lol! Glad to see one of the best Pano Heads in the world now has its own dedicated forum! Nodal Ninja all the way!!!! How am I every gonna get any work done now with all these forums lol! Regards - Carl Nodal Ninja Forum 
285 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.  - Ed F. Nodal Ninja Forum 
284 Thanks a lot Mauro, your level of service is unprecedented. Kind regards, - Marcel V. Netherlands 
283 Hello, Greetings from Germany. Since January 2007 I am a very satisfied user of the NN3 with Nikon D200 + Nikon AF DX 10,5 mm. Congratulation, the new developments look great! My interest for the future is to do the panos with my D2Xs. So I will need a new Nodal Ninja Cheers, - Pepsi - Nodal Ninja Forum 
282 I've used the NN3 for about 18 months now, shooting hundreds of panoramas. I've just changed a detent pin for the first time because I could barely feel the clicks-stops. I'd love to upgrade to the MKII or the NN5 just because I like to unpack and use new gadgets but I don't actually need to, my NN3 serves it's purpose just fine. - Henri Nodal Ninja Forum 
281 wanted to give a quick report of the NN3: Without knowing exactly why, I am getting amazingly accurate stitches on the first try. This is also true for NN5. I suspect that the improved accuracy of the indents with the ball bearing makes it much easier for PTGui to optimize. When walking around with the tripod with camera and NN3/NN5 mounted, the first optimized pano can be used as almost perfect template for the others that were shot near the same location. - Carel S.

280 The NEW Nodal Ninja 3 MkII is a fantastic panohead and the improvements to the rotator and detents over the NN3 is significant. - Smooth, Bathhurst Australia 
279 I received my NN3 Mk2 today and having shot a few interior test shots I must say that this head is great. Some may consider this a downgrade from the likes of othr more expensive options but I beg to differ. Previously I used a (deleted and the results were good a best. I would have to retune the head constantly and even configured perfectly still found the head to sag under the camera weight. For a head that weights less than a quarter of the (deleted, the Nodal Ninja its far superior. It can be locked by plates to keep its setup and does not sag in the slightest. PTgui stitched a 6+2 shot sphere flawlessly with no need to fiddle with control points - that's what I want - a head that I can take time to produce great shots and not have to worry about alignment errors occurring that can ruin a pano. I would recommend this head to anyone intreated in starting panoramic photography for its simple setup, and further endorse it for professionals because its lightweight, flexible and outperforms heads 2x or more its price. See the results of a super quick test capture thrown into PTGUI via my attachment image - please don't mind the watermark - now i know this head is perfect I will be moving to PTgui from my previous (more expensive) stitching application. The shot is just a simple 6 row fullframe fisheye in a cofined space to really push the alignment accuracy - results perfect. - Patrick C. Ireland (Nikon D70 10.5mm DX) 
278 Studying the detailed photographs on your Web pages gave me a fair idea of what the Nodal Ninja 3 looks like, but I was truly surprised and greatly impressed when I finally had one in my own hands to examine. My late father-in-law was a skilled engineer who produced, amongst other things, precision medical equipment. Seeing his work gave me some appreciation of the challenges involved in making exactly calibrated tools. How well you have succeeded in meeting the manufacturing demands of a spherical panoramic tripod head! The build quality is impressive and adds to my confidence that I shall enjoy many years of useful and rewarding service from this photographic tool. While the essence of the design brief for a panoramic head is quite straightforward I recognize that implementing all the consequential details is not. In this you have succeeded marvelously and in particular I note with approval that the Nodal Ninja 3 is a mature product incorporating many refinements, no doubt based on years of experience and problem-solving. Also to be applauded is the reasonable pricing of all the items in your catalogue. I wish you continued and growing success in your business. Creative photographers need dedicated, skilled and sympathetic technicians like you to support what we're trying to achieve with our art. I have completed a number of basic experiments using the Nodal Ninja 3 and the results have been all that I could have wished for at this stage. The head is quick and easy to assemble, thanks in particular to the rail stops, and the E-Z-Leveler simplifies tremendously the sometimes very fiddly task of getting the camera exactly horizontal. With kind regards and best wishes, - Graham S. Adelaide, South Australia ( Sony DSC-F828 CZ VS T 7.1 - 51mm) 
277 Took my first pano today with the D300 and NN3II. The pano looks great… - Simon S, Australia 
276 All in all, I am extremely pleased with the NN3. I think it is the most appropriate tool for my needs and it does everthing I require of it. If I were to require another pano head, I would certainly get another NN3 and I would certainly get it from Rosauro. Happy Nodal Ninja 3 user, - Tom B. Canada 
275 I use my Nodal Ninja all the time in my professional resort photography and especially when out in the field. I thought about the new Nodal Ninja 5 for my Canon 5D but decided to stay with the smaller lighter version. Maybe I'll get the bigger one later. - Richard C. New Caladonia 
274 Dear Nodal ninja, thanks for creating & re-design such a good gear. - C. Chia Maylasia 
273 I received the shipment today and have tested the leveler and camera plate. Love them both. I appreciate your continued commitment to developing for the VR community.  - Gary O. USA 
272 I Use the NN3 kit for use with my D200 and 10.5mm and had to take the time to say it works perfectly! A well designed product. Thank you - Brian. H Ireland 
271 I really appreciate Nodal Ninja's commitment to its customers. It's a pleasure doing business with you! Cheers,  - Jim C. Atlanta, GA 
270 Hi Bill, The NN5L rings arrived today - thanks they will be very useful, and they are such beautiful things, just as objects, aren't they. My NN5L arrived last Friday along with the T-30 adapter I ordered from red Door VR. The 'fit, feel and finish' are excellent and it has a very 'pro' appearance. My initial efforts with my D40+10.5 fisheye and my small P5100+WC-E68+T-30 (3 rows of 12 around for 360x180) have been very pleasing. I'm glad I chose the NN5L rather than the NN3 - which would have been quite 'good enough' for either of the cameras - because I actually like it being bigger - I'm not planning to hike with it - and the 'excess length' on the arms provides nice 'handles' with which to move it around.  - Andrew S. UK 
269 So far, I really like what I see. This NN5 is much stronger than my previous QTVR head. I was able to do a quick and dirty pano almost right away and it should work well. I am impressed by it. Look for a Blog post about it on my site soon. - Joe L. St Simons Island, Georgia USA 
268 Hi Bill, Thanks so much for your help today! I've read on the web that you guys have GREAT support, and they weren't kidding!I should be good to go now! - Gary D. USA 
267 Excellent product! Why I spent a thousand dollars on a (deleted) I'll never know. Sure it's a quality head but certainly does not justify the cost for my purposes. This is testament to the fact that you need to shop around before you buy. In my case I only had to ask once. I'll sell my (deleted) and take the money saved (or lost) to buy a lens. Thank you Nodal Ninja - you rock! - Chuck A. Texas USA (Nikon D200 w/10.5mm lens) 
266 Its a great product, your efforts are much appreciated and are benefitting many people. regards Phil, Australia 
265 Love my NN5 by the way, feels very well machined and nice positive clicks. - Henley B UK 
264 Thank you for your exceptionally prompt service - the package arrived on 29 Feb in perfect condition. Regards - Tony H. Australia 
263 Hi, I wanted to thank you for getting this out so quickly. (and for making such a cool product!) It got here in plenty of time for me to tinker before the shoot and it really was the perfect tool. I have even had a chance to do some creative work of my own too...  - Bill P. USA 
262 I received the NN3 early this week and am anxious to use on my camera when I receive the new tripod. I do want to commend you on the excellent quality of construction. - Tom M. USA (Canon Digital Rebel ) 
261 Fantastic customer service from across the work, im so impressed, i've already recommended you to other photog's here in sydney. Cheers - Mark K. NSW Australia 
260 NN5L is what I have been looking for. It works well with my D3 using the 70-200 2.8 VR lens. I use this lens for doing mosiacs so sturdyness is important. Nick you did well on this. Regards - Alfred B. Hamburg Germany 
259 I recently purchased a NN5L (2/23/08), In past I've used a (deleted) Pano Head and a (deleted). Your NN5L is very well built, a solid, well thought-out piece of equipment, Nice JOB - Gregory M. NY (Canon 40D) 
258 Hi All, I recently purchased the NN3 from Rosauro (Candian Reseller) - by the way... he is a true professional with exceptional service. Thanks Rosauro! - Tom V. Canada (Canon 400 Xti with a Peleng 8mm)
257 Well well well this NN5L a piece of quality work. Nick did well in the design and development of this model (as in previous models). Many thanks and keep up the great work! - Steve W. California (Canon MKII) 
256 I purchased from my local shop in Alba Piemonte Italy. I was going to buy from the Uk but wanted to support my local shop so I asked him to source it for me. I guess he contacted your Italian guy. Great product Nick, very easy to use especially with all the lens settings on your site. Regards  - Clive W. Italy (D300 + D70s Sigma 10-20) 
255 Hi Bill, The more I use this Chevy, the more I like it. This is really a nice piece of craftsmanship. Everything fits well, clamps down tight, and it's very easy to use. Swapping out the detent plates is even less fuss than I anticipated. Thanks! - David H. USA (Canon 400D 10-22, 24-105, 70-200 IS) 
254 Hi Bill, I want to thank you for your wonderful product. I'm a professional photographer and I use your head when I travel. I have other products that I use for my professional work. One product that I have was very expensive. $1045 is what it cost me plus shipping. I won't mention its flaws or name manufacturers but one day I decided to use your head with my Canon 15fe lens. I've since purchased other panorama heads because I need to do template stitching on most of my assignments. However I keep your head in my camera bag whenever I go out. Its the best backup a professional can have. Its also the best head to travel with. I also want to thank you for your superb customer service. I've dealt with many companies in the past. Your service tops them all. Great job and keep producing great products for the VR community. - Paul L. USA (Canon 5d and 15mmFE) 
253 I got your head some weeks ago and spend much time with it. Its a really good head and in my opignon the best compromise between strudity and weight....Congratulations to your head!!!! - Julian K. Austria 
252 Bill, You certainly do live up to your reputation. Thanks for that most valuable link...just when I thought I had some free time... I am aware of Panoguide forum and have used it - information overload usually. FYI - I am now selling my (deleted) head there - too heavy and more than I need. Best regards, - Hamish T. Wyoming (Nikon D80, Sigma 8mm f3.5) 
251 Thanks again, I received the NN5 on last Friday. I used on Sunday. Very nice and soooooooooo smooth. I like it. - Karl S. USA (Pentax) 
250 I've just sold my (deleted) and purchased a NN3 through your UK distributors - great service. Essentially nothing has changed apart from I now have and extra $300 in my pocket and I'm not in danger of injuring myself from carrying around a panoramic head. THe NN3 is about 1/3 of the weight and packs down for more conveniently for traveling. Great product - thanks - David C. UK (Canon 5d / 17-40 f4l and 50mm f1.8) 
249 I'm really thrilled with the NN5. The build quality is first rate. It easily supports the D3 and 70-200 2.8 zoom,just like you said it would. Excellent product! - John B. USA (Nikon D3, Shaved Nikon 10.5 fisheye) 
248 Hi Bill, i've got it today. GREAT STUFF ;o) Thank you one more time - for your service, for the goodies and the very friendly communication. Now i will try it - and, sooner or later, you will find my firts - nodal-nija-panorama on my homepage. So, I think we will have contact in the near future because of further business. Kind regards - Norbert S. Germany (Nikon D2X) 
247 Bill- Thanks for taking care of me. I did indeed get the NN5! Although the 5 looks like it will become my go to rig, the 3 will stay in my camera bag for a long time. My initial impressions: Hefty feel, thick arms nice finish. Rotator detent screw adjuster makes getting the feel of the detents a breeze without screwing up the rotator operation. Camera plate looks to make the setup faster. Damn, it's big. I wonder if and how the friction control knob on the side of the rotator is going to effect nadir stitching. The upper rotator detents are pretty stiff, I'll have to adjust them. The bubble level works! Yay! Please pass on my congratulations to Nick for a successful product launch. And, thank him for his efforts and his commitment to our little niche of photography. Hope you have a great '08! - Rob C. Virginia, USA 
246 I love Panoramas and have struggled making good ones w/o a pan head. I did some homework, found your product and the new NN5! Pre-ordered it, and WOW! First, I'm amazed at how beautifully made it is. Second, but even more important, I was able to set it up and use it in about 10 minutes from start to finish, even with a change of detent plate included. First series of shots came out dead bang perfect on the first try... absolutely perfect stitch, no parallax error, no ghosting. I'm impressed. Thank you... my panoramic world just got a whole lot easier and a whole lot better. Love the nice case etc., too. Best, - Rand A. USA (Olympus E-3, E-510, E-1 ) 
245 Thanks heaps, just received my nodal ninja 5, what an awesome product!! It is long enough for my camera/lens combination, but small enough to fit in my camera bag. Thanks aswell for the case that I didn't know I was getting. It was worth the wait. - Toby H. New Zealand (Nikon D80 + Nikkor 18-200VR)
244 Superb service and packaging. In eagerness to find the camera lens's nodal point, much to my partner's annoyance, I have taken over the brightest and longest room of the house, the kitchen. No supper tonight! I have read so many favourable reviews of the NN3 but now I have it in my hands, rather on my tripod, no words can do the service and the device justice. Thanks Bill & Nick! - Steve A. England (Canon G5) 
243 Very interesting product, key assets are: the small size, the light weight and the reasonable price.  I absolutely love the small hard shelled case which fits into my pocket. ;-) I have to recognize that the NN3 in it's simplicity is very functional, robust and well engineered. A great asset, considerably reducing post-pro time is the possibility to shoot the nadir avoiding the tripod footprint in the image, by simply unscrewing and turning the vertical element. To my knowledge the NN3 is the only head on the market having this feature. - VRMag.org 
242 I have given my Nodal Ninja a real workout over two months of professional tourism/resort photography sphere images that includes trekking for miles in very rugged terrain. It's light, quick, easy to set up, easy to use, well thought out, and otherwise a fine and well made panorama head. Thanks for a permanent addition to my photo kit. I've already thrown away my former pano heads.  - Richard C. New Caledonia (Canon 5D Sigma 8 , Canon 15mm) 
241 This is a great item, it does what it has to do perfectly well. I had a technical question and the answer came back within hours! Great product, great service. - Jorge S. USA 
240 The NN3 has been working out just fine and has taught me a lot. Rosauro has been great in making suggestions on how to improve my projects. - Keith M. Florida USA (D300 10.5mm Nikkor) 
239 Just like to let you know that I've just got back into Bangkok after being in Laos for about 1 month. The Nodal Ninja you sent me is very convenient, small lightweight, and strong. I had no problems what so ever with it. Thank you very much.  - Thomas W. Thailand (Nikone D200 w/ Sigma 15mm) 
238 Thanks for selling me the NN3 nearly a year ago. It has paid for itself many times over. Customer service has been excellent. I have shot and stitched a number of stunning wedding panos with the Ninja:  - Mike J. USA 
237 I really love the product! I makes pano's a pleasure to shoot! - Ryan M. Japan 
236 Thank you very much for answering so fast and for your kind rebate....I really appreciate your efficient and friendly customer service, don't change anything ! Vive Nodal Ninja ! Best regards, - Michel N. France 
235 Hi Bill, I've been using the Nodal Ninja now for almost 4 months and it's everything you said it was! Very easy to use and quick to set-up. My real estate virtual tours look great and I actually sold a property site-unseen...they only saw my virtual tour! Great product at a great price!! Just had to drop you a line to say thanks! All the best, - John R. USA (Canon EOS 30D + Sigma 8mm Fisheye) 
234 Hi I purchased a Nodal Ninja recently and I wanted to post my results. The first thing you notice when you open the box is how well made it is. It is solid aluminum and there is no bend in it at all. It comes in two pieces with all of the accessories you might ever need for it (extra pads, extra plates, hex driver, etc) I was able to put it together and mount it on my Manfrotto 925b and mount my Pentax K10D on it in about 2 minutes without ever looking at the manual. I then took a quick glance to see about determining entrance points, and was taking pictures on my porch within 5 minutes. Very simple to use and very solid feeling..... I know there are other ones out there for a lot more money, but I can honestly say I can't imagine what might be better about them. The Ninja is built to last forever, and the customer support cannot be beat. Highly recommended. - Micheal K. (dpreview forum) 
233 Bill, Wow.... I wasn't expecting that.... Thank you very much for the gesture, I sincerely appreciate it. I've been looking over forums etc for a while, researching panoramic heads, and I realised that you had a class outfit, but I have to say I really am taken aback, not to mention thoroughly impressed, by just how much you genuinely want your customers to be happy with their Nodal Ninja experience. Bravo! You have just relegated B&H and 17th Street Photo to positions 2 and 3 on my mental list of photography good guys! Once again, many thanks, - Graham L. United Kingdom 
232 Hi. I just bought the NN3 last week. It was ordered from Rosauro (Canadian Reseller) and the experience was first rate. I've already shot many dozens of panos with it and I like it very much....Before closing this message, I wish to once again assert that I am a happy user..... If you do not change a thing about your detent system or your product, I will continue to use, enjoy, and recommend it. I can do what I want to do with it by putting in the plate with only two detents and using the smooth areas, however, when you're shooting at sunset and trying to take the pano as quickly as possible because of the rapidly changing light conditions, the detents are a God send. A very happy user. - Tom B Canada (Pentax K100D, DA 50-200, DA 40L, DA 16-45) 
231 Bill, many thanks for your incredible service and the pre sales assistance. I ordered my NN3 last Tuesday and it arrived here yesterday (Monday), I should also thank the US and Australian postal services. I assembled the NN3 in less than a minute and love the rigidity, look and feel of it. - Mike C. Australia (Pentax *istD & K10D Sigma 15-30, 24 to70, 70 to 200) 
230 Hi Folks, I bought one of the NN3 pano heads after reading the comments on these forums and I have been well impressed with it since. A well constructed piece of equipment an well priced. Unfortunately, I managed to damage my NN3 and from that experience I am even more of a fan of the NN3 as I found that their customer service is second to none. I contacted Fanotec for advice after damaging the NN3 and I was bowled over by the quick response and by a quick replacement part shipped over from the states. Often I read customer reviews on web sites and seldom believe the comments. I have to say though, I now believe all I read about Fanotec and the Nodal Ninja. If anyone is considering buying a panohead, consider the NN3. To my mind, you really cant go wrong with the NN3. - Ped - (Panoguide Forums) 
229 The Nodal Ninja arrived safely and I have been very impressed by its construction and neat way it can been put together and then packed away back into such a small pouch. This makes it very handy and a prefect accessory to always carry in a camera bag. Regards,  - Karl H. UK 
228 Just received my Nodal Ninja 3 the other day, just wanted to let you know I appreciate the fast delivery and the exceptional build quality of your product. Your product obviously reflects your attention to detail and the product performs flawlessly!  - Dan C. USA (Nikon D200 18-70, 50mm) 
227 I just get the NN3 from my colleague who just back from San Francisco. After half day test with my camera and lens, it work quite well!!!! Light weight and compact enough! It's convenient to take with me when I trip overseas. Thanks very much!!!! - Minlang Taiwan 
226 The Nodal Ninja has scored very very well. They only telled positive things about it. The NodalNinja is very well and strong build. Even in stormy weather it stayed stable on the stand. Keep on the good quality. Greetings and kind regards,  - Patrick from the Netherlands (Canon EOS 350D with 18/55mm Kit lens) 
225 I am really enjoying its compactness and light weight...Thanks - Dave S. Canada (Nikon D70 Tamron 14mm 2.8) 
224 Hello Bill,I received the Nodal Ninja 2-Sph from you off your Ebay store. This thing is a work of art! The very first ever panorama I shot was a 360 QTVR of my back yard, with just one setup, 15 images @ 24 degree plate. 100% perfect! - Gerald W. USA (Canon S2-IS) 
223 NN3 package arrived in Melbourne on Friday 8 June (only 4-5 days later). Very quick!  I am very impressed with the quality and high standard of manufacture in the NN3.  I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun using it. Thanks again. - Ken H. Australia 
222 Just so you'll know. I found your product on the "FromParis.com" website. It's a great pan head and I want to thank you for your prompt service. I actually received it faster than expected… - Mike H. USA 
221 Dear Mr. Bill Bailey, MANY MANY THANKS for considering me as a 'SPECIAL CASE' and so nice of you. Till time, I was manage with my hand made pano head with lots of unnecessary editing efforts for stitching errors and now after getting NN3, I hope I will do much much batter for my VR business. All credit pass on to Mr. Bill - NN3. Many thanks for proving camera set up to start using NN3 as soon as its in my hand. (I have Nikon D50 + 10.5 Nikkon Fisheye Lens and its camera set up for using NN3 is with me in advance from your website. User Manual also downloaded & printed and found very useful. Once again Many Thanks Mr. Bill Bailey. Best regards, - Mukesh V. India 
220 I want to reiterate that I really like your pano-head. It is the only one I am willing to travel with (the (deleted) was a pain, and the (deleted) is a monster). I totally agree that your panohead is an engineering compromise (every head is a compromise). But well used and a properly calibrated lens, I can make panos as good as with any other head. - Daniel G. Canada 
219 Bill, Thanks a lot for the info, that worked a treat. As a normal (deleted) user I am very impressed by the way with the Nodal Ninja.. All the best, - Andy H. UK 
218 Thanks so much Bill. If you want to quote any of my repeated expressions of gratitude on your website please do so, you have helped beyond the call. Very best wishes, Chris. L UK 
217 It was a quiet night on Mawson Station. Many people stayed up until the early hours of the morning watching a very spectacular aurora display over the station. Max temp:-4.0Min temp:-13.2 Max wind gust: SSE 57knots. This is a beautiful place for photography. I use a Nikon D200 with Nikon 17-55mm and 10.5mm lenses, this being mounted on my Nodal Ninja atop a Manfrotto Tripod 3001BN with the Manfrotto 3265 Vertcial Hand Grip. Because of NN's all metal construction it performs quite well in under such extreme conditions. Also being easy to setup and take down (one knob) makes it a valuable addition to my gear. A great product! Best Regards from the bottom of the world. - Megan D. Mawson Station Antarctica 
216 I've dealt with many MANY companies and have operated a couple myself. The product you represent is everything you say and more. The support is the best I have experienced from any company and worthy of recognition. I look forward to future products - rest assured you have a loyal customer. - Shane R. Ireland (D200 Nikkor 10.5mm fisheye) 
215 Mr. Bailey,... I have tried NN3 and my first impressions are very positive. This is an excellent product. I look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Thanks again, - Jack G. USA 
214 Bill, like to thank you again for the efforts and speed and professionalism with which you operated. I have tested and made several Pano pics and am very pleased with the NN3. - Jim D. Germany

After my camera fell off a lesser expensive model I need something a bit more reliable. Nodal Ninja fit the bill perfectly. I do Real Estate Virtual Tours and use the head exclusively. Its lightweight, easy to setup and use and very dependable. I highly recommend this head. DA

199 Several years ago, when I discovered the liberating combination of digital camera and multi-exposure panorama, I knew, someday, I would probably end up either getting some expensive setup (having started with a point-and-shoot camera, or never attempt a panorama again. Needless to say, with Canon releasing the 300d, the panorama addiction grew. Then I discovered the ridiculously amazing works featured on sites such as www.panoramas.dk, and I knew I was going to have to get a well made tripod head in order to have the ease of precision that is afforded to the pros. The last straw in my age of freehand panoramas was a commissioned work for a large-scale backdrop for a museum on a shoe-string budget. Shooting the pictures was easy - shot about 30 in two minutes. But then came stitching and correcting them. It was a nightmare. 20 hours of Photoshop gave me a releasable product, but I swore off shooting panoramas unassisted unless it was an emergency.  So I then looked on the net for a suitable pano-head. I have to admit: When I first looked at the Nodal Ninja, I wondered whether it would work with a setup using a 5D body. But it was the most affordable and portable rig I could find. When I put it to use though, I was glad I had gotten the T-adapter as well. The learning curve with this device is non-existent, and I got immediate results with 30min of trial and error (possibly less if I had used the grid technique)......To finish, all I really wanted to say was I appreciate having such a well-made panoramic head made available for such an excellent price. (next to filters and a camera rain cover, it's the least expensive piece of gear in my kit) It works with the Canon 5D setup perfectly, and I can't imagine not working without it (even though I really know I had to before). I certainly will recommend it to any one who inquires about panoramic photography. Thanks Again,  Emil E. Victoria Canada (Canon 5D EF 16-35mm f/2.8L)
198 I've had NN3 now for about 6 months and use it almost daily. The thing is build like a Sherman Tank - very strong and durable. I don't believe I didn't order sooner and really kic myself. I haven't had a chance to experience your talked about support because I haven't had a change to even use it. I also own a (deleted) and it's for sale if you're interested. Many thanks for a great product. - Bret H. (Nikon D70s Nikon 10.5mm Lens) 
197 Just received my Nodal Ninja 3 the other day, just wanted to let you know I appreciate the fast delivery and the exceptional build quality of your product. Your product obviously reflects your attention to detail and the product performs flawlessly! I actually ordered the 2-3 day express delivery, ordered it on Tuesday and the post office tried to deliver it on Wednesday afternoon! Excellent customer service, can't wait to shoot with it! Thanks again. - Dan C. USA (Nikon D200 18-70, 50mm, 70-200) 
196 Hi Bill, I've been using the Nodal Ninja now for almost 4 months and it's everything you said it was! Very easy to use and quick to set-up. My real estate virtual tours look great and I actually sold a property site-unseen...they only saw my virtual tour! Great product at a great price!! Just had to drop you a line to say thanks! All the best, - John F. USA (Canon EOS 30D + Sigma 8mm Fisheye) 
195 Bill, thank you for your prompt attention. May I congratulate you on your great customer service. Thanks again, - Richard G. UK 
194 Nodal Ninja is truly a great product and I spend much less time stitching panoramas than I did before hand. BY taking two images of the floor, my bottom cap is reduced as much as possible so I can generate the largest possible view. After using the Nodal Ninja, I can't imagine ever taking another panorama without it! Best Regards, - Mark N. USA (Olympus E-500 w/ Olympus Fisheye) 
193 Hi Bill, Never in my dealings on the internet, have I had personal replies and service like yours, congratulations and thank you. Almost like talking to an old friend.....Hope to hear from ya soon Regards - Gary K. Australia (D70s and 10-20 lens) 
192 I bought the Nodal Ninja 3 about a month ago to replace a (deleted) and could not be happier! It is an excellent value - superb design, construction, finish, and precision in use. Thank you and Nick for such a great product that is obviously a labor of love. Thank you again,  - David M. Texas 
191 I decided to try the NN3 because I wanted a much lighter and smaller head than my (deleted) to carry in my photo backpack. I am EXTREMELY pleased with the head. In several tests I am now getting better results that with the (deleted). I will recommend the head to anybody. - John B. New Jersey 
190 I just ordered the NN3 about two days ago and it showed up today. I am amazed at the quality of this product. I can't wait to get it in the field and start using it. This is a great bargain in pano photography. Congrats for the excellent product design and finish! - Joe B. USA (Pentax K10D w/Pentax DA21mm) 
189 Hello Bill, I have received the NN3 today. It looks so beautiful! I tried it to shoot a full spheric pano with my Nikkor 18mm lens, 12x3=36 shoots. The result is perfect! Thanks for your smart product! B.Rgds, - Jesse L. China 
188 Just got the product and the first test done for the Nodal Ninja... incredible product so far. It's much smaller than I thought... highly portable and incredibly accurate....Thanks so much again! - Josh K. USA 
187 Dear Nick and Bill, I've been a customer for a couple of years. Just sold my old SPH-1 on eBay for $110!! That's only $9 less than I had orginally paid. Not bad after 2 years of use and it was still working perfectly. Because the older model withstood the test of time I had to jump in and buy the new NN3 and I wasn't dissappointed. NN3 is nice and light, and easy to use, I love the 45/60 clcik stop plate.....Thanks guys, wish you the best of success!! Cheers, - Christian D. Sydney, Australia (D200 w/ 10.5mm Nikkor) 
186 Dear Bill, many thanks for your message and service! I've been giving the Nodal Ninja 3 a good workout and it's performing very nicely!...Again, many thanks for your kind help and fantastic service.  - Stephen N. USA 
185 I received the Nodal Ninja 3 last week. It works great, very easy to adjust the controls, even in our freezing temperatures. It's a very well-designed piece of equipment. Thank you - Harold R. Montreal Canada (Canon Rebel XT/Sigma 8 mm 3.5) 
184 Hi Bill, I am very happy with my NN3. It works for the 5D/Nik10,5 and for my brand new 400D/Sigma 8 f/3,5....The NN3 I can put on a light stand and I like that ! :-)) The (deleted) can go to eBay then :-)) Regards, - Frank D. Netherlands 
183 I have a Ninja 3 and I do love it. I am lucky because in the first time I have a Ninja. - Pham L. Vietnam (Canon EOS 350D, Tokina 10-17 fisheye) 
182 What a well made pano head. Great service from you all around. Regards,Kevin C USA (Canon 30d 8mm sigma and 10-22mm) 
181 Appreciate your assistance in helping me. I'm new to this and the added support you provide is very valuable to newbie's like me. Thanks again - Shelly O. Washington DC (D70 with 10.5mm lens) 
180 I am very happy with my NN3. It works for the 5D/Nikkor 10,5 and for my brand new 400D/Sigma 8mm f/3.5....The (deleted) is very heavy , needs a sturdy tripod. So for indoor I have a lot of shade from that combo. The NN3 I can put on a light stand and I like that ! :-) - Frank D. Netherlands 
179 Hello Bill, here are some words from a satisfied customer. I am the house photographer for a large restored very ornate 1920's era movie house. I have been making large panoramas of the interior, for years with great difficulty. Upon getting the Nodal Ninja, I immediately started a new panorama project for the theater. The ease of use is outstanding. I wish I had this wonderful tool years ago. Also thank you Bill for the wonderful communications, I highly recommend your product and of course, you personally. - Lou B USA 
178 I have received a parcel from you with NN3. Many thanks!... It is good, that in a complete set there is a T-adapter...In any case, I very much liked your panoramic head, is very simple in use, literally for 5 minutes I managed precisely to adjust a camera of concerning an entrance pupil. Once again many thanks. - Alexander S. Israel 
177 Order has been delivered. Fantastic Tool!!!!!!! Tested it, flawless quick stitch!!! - David F. USA 
176 I got my NN3 today. It is great and it was rather quick here in Germany - only five days. I give you my recommendation. (Hope my english is not to bad ;-) Thank you very much, - Peter L. Germany 
175 Hi Nick and Bill WOW, The NN3 arrived today in the post!!! What outstanding service and speed, truly an amazing conclusion to sorting out the NN order.Many thanks to you both for looking into the issue and providing such an outstanding result. Tried the NN3 today and the ease of use is so much better than the NN2. The NN2 was good but the improved arm and mounting for the camera is so much better. - Paul P. New Zealand 
174 The important thing is I have the NN3. The quality is very good and I appreciate a lot there are some spare parts with it. - Paco R. Spain 
173 Hi Bill, I can not explain how happy I am with the NN 3. Installing, setting for my Nikon was so easy. In the meantime I did three 360? Panos. How many of my time was wasted to plan, buy stuff, screwing, sawing...to built a DIY Pano-Adapter. And always it took a lot of time to set up the heavy beast with three spirit levels.... IT WAS BORING ! 110% satisfied I wrote: I will tell this to my colleges in the forum. Done http://www.panorama-community.net/thread.php?threadid=653 a valued customer say THANK YOU for making my life easier. Greeting from Germany  - Pepsi S. 
172 I'm getting along really well with my NN3 and EOS-20D, now that I have my Tokina Fisheye.....My pal wants to get himself a NN3 'cos he sees me having such fun with mine! All the best - Simon M. USA 
171 Very nice piece of equipment, I am delighted with the results. Thanks also for the postal upgrade, I got the package in four days. Best regards, Vincent M. France (Canon EOS 400D, Rebel XTi & 17-40L) 
170 My work has steadily improved and I have been asked to provide work for the liberty State Park complex including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Eland and so forth. It's not a big payer mind you but the commission should be a good platform for some press releases to my commercial direction. I just wanted to say that I could not have done it without your help, support and of course the Nodal Ninja tool. - Riki B. New York 
169 Just to let you know that I have just received the NN3 and I am already impressed! I normally use the (deleted) unit (which is very heavy) but this one will be excellent for traveling. Thank you for an excellent product and service. Cheers,  - Mike K USA (Canon Rebel XTi Sigma 8mm) 
168 Bill, I bought the Nodal Ninja 3 about a month ago to replace a (deleted) head and could not be happier! It is an excellent value - superb design, construction, finish, and precision in use. Thank you and Nick for such a great product that is obviously a labor of love. Thank you again, David M. Texas 
167 Anybody want to buy my (deleted)? Wish I found your Nodal Ninja before I bought the (deleted). Nodal Ninja is more accurate, stable, smaller, and MUCH cheaper than (deleted). Thank you Nick for developing an excellent product. - Jerry T. Las Vegas Nevada ( D80 with 10.5mm lens) 
166 Hi Bill, Thank you for your speedy response. Much appreciated. I got to give you a credit on knowing how to treat your customers. I read and heard about lots of people having excellent experience with you and the pano head you sell, and it looks like I'm having one, too. I haven't started to work with the head yet, but I already like what I'm seeing. Looking forward to start shooting my panos with it in a couple of days. Thank you again for your service. - Sergi Y. USA 
165 On a scale of one to 10 I give nodal Ninja a 9. I would like to see it work with my Canon Mark II. It does work perfectly with my 5D using the 8mm 3.5. Regards - Chuck B. New Hampshire 
164 Whoa! How cool is this? What a neat little setup! This is my first VR head and really glad I bought it. I was doing things by hand before but now that I have this Nodal Ninja I can keep it in my bag (fits nicely) and use it whenever I do my panoramas. And the tutorial on your website (I do use different software however) has helped me to fine tune my techniques. Many thanks, William H. Germany 
163 I've bought both the NN2 and NN3. I love them both, they are outstanding products. This is a must have for any panorama creator. - Chris J. USA (D70 & D200 with 10.5mm lens) 
162 T H A N K S A L O T for your patience with me, an my order. Your email makes my feel very happy - Pepsi S. Germany 
161 You may remember that the other day I explained my dilemma about what lens to buy to go with my NN3, EOS20D, PTGui & Pano2QTVR setup. Well, I plumped for the Tokina 10-17mm AT-X 107 DX Fisheye in the end.... The Tokina fits perfectly - it is only a little larger than the Canon 18-55mm kit lens. I took my time setting the rig up to eliminate parallax and I have been rewarded with some very successful panos. Thanks again for all your help - Simon N. UK 
160 Nick - you have done it even better! I had the SPH-1 and NN3 is a vast improvement. I wish your company great success. Bill is a great community and I owe him thanks for answering all my questions and getting this out to me so quickly. - Charles G. Maine (D80 with 10.5mm Nikkor) 
159 OKAY for $200 and in seeing what else it out there it's a no brainer. Your 30 day refund option allowed me to see for myself. I'm impressed and keeping it! - Tiki M. Hawaii USA 
158 Perfect! - Branden. R. Ireland 
157 Nick, you have a designed a product that suits my needs perfectly! I travel allot and always on the go, being single is tough :-). I don't do panoramas for a living but probably take more panoramas that many pros. It's a fun and a very exciting aspect of photography. The fact I can hike out into the desert or climb some hills and easily tuck this is bag is what sold me. The build quality, detents, and handy little case (snug fit) only adds it it's lure. Bill is tops! Give him a raise, opps, maybe not or you would have to raise the price :-). All kidding aside I hope you add this testimonial to your page as your panorama head is an excellent value for it's price. - Mike H. Flagstaff Arizona (Nikon D70s with 17-55mm) 
156 Hi Bill, Just got the product photography and the first test done for the Nodal Ninja... incredible product so far. It's much smaller than I thought... highly portable and incredibly accurate. Thanks so much again! - Josh K. USA

154 Hello Bill, This was quick...got the missing knob today...now I will learn how to use the equipment. I will get back to you when I know more. This is exciting! Thanks for all your trouble. - Jan B. Sweden 
153 Works with a 5D+ shaved Tokina10-17/Sig 15/Nik 10,5 and more, even without mirror up. What can I say more ........ Have Fun - Paul K. Iceland 
152 I just thought I would drop in a note about Nodal Ninja. Compared to other pano heads, it's smaller, lighter and significantly less money. I was going to build anothr head, this time for my D200, but splurged on the NN3...I'm impressed. I can't say it's better than other pano heads because I haven't used other heads. But it's fast and easy and very compact for taking along with you.....I'm using it with the D200 and the 18-200 lens at 18. You have to pull it all the way back on the top rail to get the nodal point, but it works great and helps speed panorama factory along to make QTVR/Panoramas. I find at 18 degrees, 10 shots works perfectly for a full QTVR. With a adaptor, you can shoot horizontal, landscape mode panoramas. I love this thing! I use Panorama Factory but also have tried a number of other programs like Hugin for the MAC, Photovista etc. The NN3 is mounted on a Manfrotto Ball Head (488rcd) on a 3021Pro Manfrotto Tripod. - reader Discussion Forums @ Nikonians 
151 Nice job with the tutorials, the author has done you well.  - Martin N. London, Ontario Canada (Nikon D200 10.5mm Nikkor) 
150 I have never used a pano head before and i am thrilled at the results - Lou B. USA (Canon 5 D with the canon 16-35 L lens) 
149 My new NN3 arrived yesterday. I have been quite impressed with it so far, using a 20D+Sigma 8mm combination. No problems setting it up and it looks very smart and neat. - John H. England 
148 While the lighter weight of the NN3 is attractive, given transatlantic travels, I find the price of the discontinued SPH-2sd more so, in light of my relative inexperience in panos. I also like the fact that your product is partially pre-assembled, that it is well tooled (from reports on dpreview) and that it comes in a case. - Sydney H. Toronto Canada 
147 “First Panorama with Nodal Ninja 3” I have to give two thumbs up to Nodal Ninja 3 at this time. I got the full kit which included the T-Adapter so I could do landscape panoramas in addition to a full spherical. It seemed like I figured out the Entrance Pupil for my Tamron 17-50 so I went out to San Diego Bay to try it out. What a piece of cake! I set my D70 to Aperture mode and set my focus to Manual after setting the Hyper focal distance. All I needed to do at that point was push the shutter, rotate 30 degrees and repeat. I didn't need to look through the viewfinder or anything else. It took about 15 seconds to shoot and I was done.  - rklingman Discussion Forums @ Nikonians 
146 Your prompt replies and gracious handling of my request are outstanding examples of above average customer service. I look forward to using your products and thanks for making the purchase experience truly outstanding. Best wishes,  - Alan H. Canada
145 I just got NodalNinja this week...works for Olympus E300...I have to say ... NodalNinja ROCKS~!!!....... - Realviz Forum. 
144 I received the Nodal Ninja in time so I took the NN with me on vacation. (the perfect opportunity to try out the NN) It works great! Really worth the wait!! I'm still a beginner in photography, so I have to practice a lot, but the NN is really a must have! Especially for 360° photos. - Ester D. Netherlands (Panasonic FX 01 ) 
143 “Review of the Nodal Ninja" Early thoughts on the Nodal Ninja I've recently acquired. The slings and arrows of life have kept me too busy to do anything with my Nodal Ninja until now; I've finally "calibrated" one of my lenses. Well thought out, well engineered, and very well made, and reasonably priced. Designed to be used with the camera vertical....Based on the pictures done while finding the "nodal" point of my 18-70mm at 18mm, (78mm set back on the Nodal Ninja) I think it will do just fine.  - Bron Discussion Forums @ Nikonians 
142 Hi, I received the extra T-Adapter a couple of days ago, and it works great with both the Raynox and the Olympus WCON-07C :)  - Bjrn N. Norway 
141 Really happy with my Nodal Ninja 3 - thank you.  - Sim R. Britain (Canon 300D and peleng) 
140 Thanks again Bill. Your service is as excellent as before. Kind regards - Simon N. UK (Canon 20D and a borrowed Sigma 12-24m) 
139 I got my Ninja today and it seems quite sturdy and handy for travelling used to carry (deleted) Best - Kimmo T. Finland (Nikon D80 with Nikon 10.5mm) 
138 Thanks Bill! Your response has really been above and beyond. You can be sure NN will get my recommendation whenever the opportunity arises. - Michael K. USA 
137 I received my Nodal Ninja 3 yesterday and although I have only shot one panoramic with it so far it looks as if it is a fantastic product. Thank you so much with your support. - Patrick B. Tasmania, Australia 
136 By the way, I love the Nodal Ninja, I've been able to take some great Equirectangular panoramas with it already. And pass on my thanks to everyone else involved with the Nodal Ninja 3. Such a great product at such a fair price with really good instructions and help online as well. Thanks! - Josh S. Petaluma, CA. USA 
135 Hi Bill, That's brilliant. Much appreciate it. I've just put the NN together and I think it's brilliant. I had a (deleted) before which cost about $450 over here and it was crap. Absolutely terrible workmanship and so many design flaws. So happy new year and keep up the good work - Masten G. England (Nikon D50 and Sigma 8mm) 
134 Thanks for the parts - arrived today. Excellent. Went out with the nn3 and managed to take the attached last night. Overlap wasn't quite enough (will be great with the n=20 disk you sent me), so you can just about see the joins in the sky, but pretty excellent anyway. The stitching process (10 images) in ptgui was the easiest ever due to the consistent overlaps and perfectly vertical images. Images were taken with my Canon 30D and new Canon 17-55 f2.8 - a superbly sharp lens and ideally suited to panos. Regards, - Mike T. Australia (Canon 30D, 17-55) 
133 Bill, Thanks again for all you've done to make this transaction go great including the express shipping... Even with the rough weather around here the NN3's arrived about an hour ago and I've already been playing with one of them trying to see exactly how they work, w/o reading the manual of course! I will need to print it out and do some studying as this is a really well-designed and capable piece of equipment. Had some doubts re using every-other detent to get e.g. 36 degree intervals but this turns out to be no problem at all, easy to skip right by the first one by "feel" and then there you are ready for the next shot. So thanks to you for your good support here in the states, and for making this transaction easy, and to Nick for continuing to improve the design! - Charlie C. (Canon XTi w/18-55 kit lens ) 
132 Bill, Thank you for sending the 15/18 detent disc.... I have been doing cylindrical panos for 5+ years so I really like how I can now do the full sphere without the 5+ need for a super wide angle or fisheye lens. Your product is certainly the best I have seen and used for size, weight and price. Most appreciated,  - Dylan S. Brisbane, Australia (Canon 400D, 17-85mm IS USM) 
131 My wife got me the Nodal Ninja for Christmas and I'm delighted with it. Many thanks and I love the Ninja ! - Jon W. England Canon EOS 350D w/ kit lens) 
130 I really like some of the gallery links you guys have on your site. Especially the shots by Carel Struycken. That is my goal. Anyway, thanks Bill for your time and efforts. - Howard W. USA 
129 Thanks to Rosauro's tutorial, it gave me some ideas I hadn't thought of....it was very well done and must have taken time to produce. It helps to have stuff like this out there for us newbies..  - Brandon C. Ireland (Nikon D80 with Sigma 8mm) 
128 Please add this to your testimonial site....your product is superior, I haven't had to use your support but have heard it's superior as well. I use Nodal Ninja on almost a daily basis for work and play. I had to take a recent flight and the guy at the security gate asked me to explain what it was. Guess when they saw it folded up that I might be concealing something dangerous. Product and support are the two main ingredients to success and of course price. It's good to know I have a company behind me if something breaks or goes wrong.  - Mic W. Berlin Germany 
127 The only thing I see that I don't like about Nodal Ninja is the wearing out of brass parts. I've shot 100's of panos with NN3 thus far and haven't yet needed to replace any wear parts. Thanks for adding in the extra parts, I won't have to bother you when the time comes to finally replace the detent pin. - Tom T. Denver Colorado 
126 What's planned for the future? Nodal Ninja is well designed. Looking forward to seeing what's next. - John. T. NYC New York (Canon EOS 20d with 10.5mm Nikkor with adapter) 
125 The tutorial “How to Make a Panorama” is very well done. Rosauro Ona does a well written tutorial with lots of photos. Credit well deserved.  - Joan S. Austin Texas 
124 I broke my Nodal Ninja oh no! Bill was super quick and more than fair in offering replacement part. You didn't leave me hanging. Thank you - S.S. Fairbanks Alaska 
123 OKAY, you have rave reviews but let's see if you post this one. I'm not happy with with your Nodal Ninja, why? Because it doesn't fit medium format cameras. The design and build quality are undeniably but it just doesn't support the big guns. I'm not going to return it though as I may step down to a DSLR one day. So with that said I do believe that once I step into the world of DSLR I feel this will be a welcomed addition to my gear. Regards - Dana F. Austria 
122 I just bought a used Nodal Ninja on eBay. I was disappointed to hear you don't offer a warranty but with the model being over 2 years old I understand. This Nodal Ninja was sent through the grinder but it all still works perfectly. I do single row pano's and had to send you an e-mail telling you and your readers (assuming you want to post this on your website) that the product is smartly designed. I'm a bit of cheap guy and would buy used before buying new but may after a few months consider the new model for it's click stop feature. Good luck and keep on keeping on. - Randy M. Miami Florida (Canon Rebel) 
121 Bill, the link you put on your site lead to my first job!! Now the pressure is on to produce some primo work. I got the hardware down but need to learn the software end. I appreciate your recommendations and assistance, you go above and beyond. - Darly H. Chico, CA (Nikon D50 18mm Kit Lens) 
120 Just received my Nodal Ninja. What a mess!! I'm talking about the package this is :-) The postal workers must have used it as a hockey puck as the package was very abused to say the least. But I am happy to report the pano head was just fine. I took it out out hooked it up and it works great! It's perfect for my needs (Real Estate QTVR's). I did have a bit of trouble with it at first and appreciate how fast you were to offer the quick fix that was also posted on your website FAQ page. Apparently it just needed some tightening. It shows company concern for consumer satisfaction. Thank you very much and wishing you the best of success for 2007. - JR British Columbia Canada 
119 I have to give you my two cents worth. Nodal Ninja model 3 has been and continue to perform well. It fits into my camera bag nicely and the setup is quick and painless. Thanks guys! - Mark W. South Africa (Canon 20D w/ Sigma 8mm) 
118 Hey - the tutorial posted on your website is a nice addition. I realize it's geared towards specific cameras and software but gives me an idea of what to expect if I want to do full panoramas.  - Robert B. Sedona AZ 
117 I have just received my Nodal Ninja, it's a fantastic bit of kit and will definitely be recommending it to my friends and colleagues. Happy New Year!!! Best regards, - Phil T. UK (Nikon D80 and AF Nikkor 28-80mm 3.3-5.6G) 
116 Bill, I've read good things about you and customer service on the various message boards and you over did yourself......the NN3 works perfectly! I was about to order a (deleted) when I saw a recent review of the NN3 and I am so happy I got it instead. The construction is great and feels like it will last a lifetime. Thanks for a great product and for a quick response. - Mike O. USA (Nikon D70 w/10.5mm) 
115 Got it! Had a bit of wobble and you were quick to address my concerns. I did as you suggested (in the FAQ page) and works perfectly now. We're planning a trip to Europe soon and this will be great because it fits in my pack nicely. Wishing you the best of success in the New Year. Many Thanks! - Georg. R. Maine (Nikon D70s/10.5mm) 
114 Bill thanks so much....I may indeed hold the record for most panos taken with the SPH-1i (over 1000 homes in the last year @ a minimum of 6 panos per home = at least 6000 panos in the last year - no wonder I am getting carpal tunnel!!!) Have a great holiday! - Justin A. Cupertino CA. 
113 Just arrived!! It'Fantastic...strong light and functional...i haven't words!! Awesome!! Thanks a lot!! - Denis C. Italy 
112 Have been using the Nodal Ninja for over a month now. It cas completely replaced my (deleted) + leveling base. It produces consistently excellent results with the minimum of effort. WELL DONE...regards - Peter O. Ireland (EOS 5D + 15mm Fisheye) 
111 I'm impressed. Great tool. Well build and will last a lifetime. - Alphons N. Netherlands (Canon 5D, 30D 16-35L 24-105L) 
110 Just want to say how very impressed I am with the improvements. Now I can set up and level the head in record time. The results are consistent. I no longer need the extra level. Stays dead on throughout the entire rotation. No more guesswork, adjusting and readjusting. Perhaps these differences are subtle to some, but they are major to me. Great workl!!! You took a nice product to perfection. My hat's off to you. I would be interested in new products you might come out with down the road.  - Perry J. USA 
109 Got it today, thank you for a speedy and friendly service. Looking forward now to using the kit. Regards, - Anthony S. UK 
108 Hello, just received my Nodal Ninja and I have to say WOW! I'm very happy with your product. - Xavier A. USA (Nikon D200 w/ 10.5mm Nikkor) 
107 Let me say that I am impressed with your service and support and on the various forums I greatly appreciate the respect with which both you and Nick treat your customers as well as your competitors. This makes you a class act in my view and you deserve our business and support! Thanks, Charlie V. USA 
106 I got the NN3 today and I am amazed at the quality of the piece! I was expecting some plastic and some wobble but man, I bet I could use it as a bludgeoning device if I had to! The detent mechanism clicking into place enhance the weaponry quality of it. I can tell a lot of thought went into designing it. Good stuff! ... amazing value for the money. Thanks again! - Ben H. USA 
105 I received my Ninja head (with the rest of the parts) today, 30 of November. I really want to thank your helpfulness of NN3. I put the parts together and mounted it on my camera. It looked really nice. And the best part is that one can actually without take it from the camera just put in the bag. Any ways, big thanks, and best regards from North part of Sweden - Bertil O. Sweden 
104 Just received NN3 and it is as advertised. It's a solid, quality product that works! - Mark V USA (Nikon D200 D70) 
103 The NN3 has proven to be easy to set up in the field, has excellent stability plus repeatability. Adjusting the rotator indent tension was straight forward. Regards. - Murray C. New Zealand 
102 Dear Bill The parcel arrived at school from the States on Friday exactly as promised. I assembled the head without difficulty, made the adjustments for my camera and did a trial shoot on “One Tree Hill” an extinct volcanic cone fortified by Maori around 1,000 years ago. The equipment worked very well, in fact the most easily stitched image I have ever made.....Thank you for a great piece of equipment at a very reasonable price. Thanks also for the prompt delivery. Best wishes - Ken A. Auckland, New Zealand 
101 Just returned from a photo shoot in Zanzibar (East Africa) - found the NN3 a pleasure to work with , far more user-friendly than the previous (deleted) - well done. Regards  Kevin J. South Africa 
100 Hi Bill, FYI I wanted to let you know I attended a meeting in Seattle that was having a demo on Realviz & (deleted) and afterwards I carried in your Nodal Ninga and Quite a few of the people were impressed and even the presenter from San Francisco was very interested, So you probably will get a few orders from the Seattle Area. Living 150 miles from anywhere in Selah WA, It is a treat to find an actual hands on demo and anybody who even has an Idea of how to go about this process I am working on a business plan for Small start up that centers around all the elements using panoramas and It Was nice to let them know a Real Person Responded to my Inquiry from a supplier. - Thanks Gary D. Selah Washington
99 Just received my NN3 in the mail today. What a work of art! The build quality is stupendous. I have owned several units. One as suggested by Apple when they first introduced QTVR, very expensive units from (deleted) and (deleted). Yours is the only unit I found to stay horizontal through the entire 360 degrees. You are to be commended on such a fine piece of photographic hardware. I am thrilled that I ran across it while browsing thru Photo.net. Extremely easy to carry and setup. What else could anyone want. And the price? WOW! Thanks again for such a fine product. I am sure I will enjoy making panos more than ever. (Since I don't have to lug around another bag) - Thanks again, Erol U. USA 
98 Nick, I love this design. I do a lot of travel so size and weight are important considerations for me. For the money your product fits the bill perfectly. Personally I don't using click stops because I shot at so many different focal length so having a ring with 0 clicks is best for my Tamron 18-200 lens. Thank you.  - Rodriguez R. Spain (Canon 20D 18-200 Tamron) 
97 Hey Bill, Just wanted to thank you for your support... and I haven't even received the items yet! LOL... I did just order my Nikon D80 today. I know for sure I'll be using the Panoweaver software, it's not the 4.0 to start out with, but actually the 3.01 software. I look forward to receiving NN3 here shortly. Again, Thanks for taking the time to work with me on this... I'm sure to be contacting the forum for long term advise... - Rod P. Payton Colorado 
96 I really appreciate it! I think your product is by far the best on the market when it comes to price/value/usability. I am really glad that your business is going well and I'm grateful that you take care of old customers like me! You can bet that anyone who asks me about panoramic heads is directed your way. I actually get quite a few inquiries about my panoramas and how I made them and Nodal Ninja and PTGUi are the two products I always recommend! Again, thanks so much! - Greg T. Fort Worth Texas (Nikon D200 10.5mm Nikkor) 
95 So far, the new NN3 is working like a charm...Do you know that the gentle vibration transmitted by the detents of NN3 on each click are helpful to keep the sensor of digital camera clean of dust particles by getting them off the sensor? - Dorin G. Romania 
94 Bill: Thanks for the offer to refund the NN3 purchase. The NN3 is actually a great device, it's very compact and great for travelling. The (deleted) is too big and heavy for travelling. I agree that templates are not possible but I am still very happy with the NN3, it does what you claim, so I will keep it, thanks. By the way should anyone ask the Canon 5D and Canon 15mm Fisheye set-up is as follows. Lower rail - Front edge of the base of the rail at 48mm Upper Rail - screw-line center at 79.5mm - John S. Canada 
93 You've definitely gained a customer Bill and I got to say that you've got the best customer service I have ever experienced, I will definitely buy from you again without a doubt, the quality of NN3 is absolutely incredible and so is the customer service. Best regards  - Arnaud V. UK 
92 Wasn't sure what all the hubbub was about until I decided to buy and try a Nodal Ninja. Nick has developed an excellent product at a very fair price. I do a lot of Real Estate VR work ad like to get in and out quickly. I'll now be selling my (deleted) - no comparison! Thanks Nick and Bill. - Vic. Z. Iowa USA 
91 Received the Nodal Ninja today. First impressions...Really light, Really compact,Very very well made and did I mention really really really light. - Peter O. Ireland 
90 Nice piece of kit. Elegant design, well manufactured, and reasonable price -- a rare combination. Thanks very much.  - John R. UK (Canon EOS 20D with EF 24-105L & EFS 10-22) 
89 I just received my new NN3 after it was inspected and released by German custom. The kit is great! Already the first shots turned into panos that I simply was not able to do before...Kind regards - Gerd K. Germany (Canon EOS 300+18-55) 
88 I got the NN3 this morning as a part of my of my deal with Bill Bailey. Man, I am impressed! It weighs like a feather and surprisingly stable for such light weight. I produced first pano in ten minutes after opening the package :-) NN3 will definitely take place in my bag. - Andrey I. Russia 
87 HI BILL, MARK R. HERE IN BRIGHTON , ENGLAND...AND MY NODAL NINJA HAS ARRIVED !!!! ITS GREAT, ONCE AGAIN THANKS ..., A GREAT DESIGN , YOURS MARK R. UK 
86 Hi, I've attached a couple of pictures of the 400D and a 10D using a Nikor 10.5 with the T adapter. I was wrong, it does work on the 400D with this lens. Best Regards, - Robert H. USA 
85 Hi Bill, picked my NN3 up Tues morning just gone and was not disappointed in any way at all. It so far looks like everything I could possible want in a panoramic head, lightweight, sturdy and 'cool' looking..I can see this line of work becoming truly addictive with limitless possibilities maybe. Thanks again for what looks like a great product - I'm sure I'll have great fun using it! best regards - Joe B. UK 
84 NN3 is an obvious improvement on an already outstanding bit of engineering. It's light, sturdy, and functional. From the moment it came out of the box, I appreciated the new design and attention to detail. All of the arms move very precisely and hold fast when adjusted. The switchable detent discs and supplied thread adapter are welcome upgrades. It's clearly evident that a lot of thought and likely implementation of customer feedback went into the new design. Beyond the functional changes, it looks good. It seems to have a more refined, almost automotive or architectural style. Thanks again, - Dean F. USA 
83 Perfect and fast delivery. Box received in good order (was marked 'extremely urgent' - always good to feel important :-) The rig is of excellent quality....I immediately installed the 15-degrees index ring. 15-30-45-60 is an excellent range and can be read on the degrees scale (easier than 12-24-36-48. The 20mm extender-T is an essential accessory - it delivers both extra height (necessary for 77mm filter diameter lenses like the 17-40L) and extra depth. Without it it wouldn't be possible to use a 20D or 5D with the 17-40. Thanks for the good service and good luck with the business. - Henk, Netherlands 
82 From what I've seen on the market so far, you have the best product for cost. Simple yet durable, fully functional yet inexpensive... and the portability is the big bonus! Especially for me since I'm a backpacker and usually shoot in VERY remote locations. I don't know why everyone else is asking so much for these convoluted, bulky types of setups... YOU have the RIGHT idea! Realistically, a head like this should not cost more than the camera it's holding. Thank you for selling a product that lets us up and coming "starving artist" types play on a par with all the big shooters. - Jason L. USA (Nikon D70S w/ Tokina AF 19-35mm) 
81 Just a quick note of thanks - the NN3 arrived yesterday all safe and sound. I have to say that the appearance and quality strikes me as being second to none - a bit like your service and support, really! Cheers - Simon N., UK 
80 I was on the summit of Kendall Mtn, 13,066 ft, above Silverton, CO, for sunrise. ~25 deg and enough wind to take down my tripod with ~10# pack hanging from the center. I was ~20 ft away trying to get out of the wind. Luckily NN3 took ALL of the abuse and the $1000 camera and lens were undamaged. Not bad, would you say!!! I was so cold I just packed up everything and ran down the mountain. Thanks  - Roger E. Buena Vista, CO
79 Hey Bill,I just got it today (09/12)! Man, this head is really cool stuff, congratulations! I'll set it up for my camera tomorrow... I guess that shooting panos will be even more fun now. :) The look and feeling of it are even better than I imagined, very well developed and built and absolutely streamlined. Beautiful! I very much appreciate your support, it's awesome! I'd read some very good comments about it on some forum, panoguide I guess, but now I had the chance to go through it myself and I'm very happy about it. Thanks a lot once more, Eduardo H. Canada 
78 Just got the NN3 and put it together and am now going over the manual. thanks so much for delivering a really well-made product at a great price. Little touches like the 1/4" tripod bush adapter in the base are truly appreciated. best wishes, - Les H. USA 
77 Hi, Bill: I shot 6+2 with the Sigma and PTMac/Emblend cleaned it up nicely. For the first time ever, I can shoot a good zenith!! What a huge difference in my work. Not to mention cutting the weight of my rig in half. I also got a carbon fibre tripod made by Amvona (China knockoff of a Gitzo) from eBay. I'm really happy to have a rig that comes in at just a skosh over 4 kg. I've got the 10.5, I guess now is the time to learn to use it...cheers! - Gary O Charlotte, NC 
76 My NN3 arrived this afternoon. I appreciate how promptly I received it and I am extremely impressed with its build quality. - George L. USA (Nikon D70) 
75 Hello Bill, thank you very much for producing and sending the NN3. A lot of work must have flown into this excellent product. It is really great. I just received it yesterday and like it alot. It is way better than another panoramic head I used before - more sturdy, smaller, more professional. Take care - Chris G. NY, NY 
74 The Nodal Ninja arrived this afternoon, Bill. I hooked it up to my Konica Minolta 7d with an 85mm lens and it worked beautifully. Thanks so much for the extra effort in getting it to me. I hope to add to your testimonials page in a couple of weeks. Should anyone from Mexico ask for the Nodal Ninja, you can tell them that the only additional charge was $310 pesos (about US $30) at customs. Thanks again. I am very pleased. - Dennis H. Mexico City, Mexico 
73 Hi guys, First of all wanted to say congratulations for this wonderful product, you have demonstrated clearly that a top notch product can be produced and sold a t a reasonable price. Great job!!! - Gus R. USA (Nikon D70 - 18-70 kit lens) 
72 Somehow, the USPS got the package to me already. You've made some very nice improvements here - the NN3 looks great. Lighter but seemingly stiffer locks, chunkier detent stops, 3/8 mount, longer smoother arm action. Nice work. Best of luck. - Ryan T. USA 
71 I have the Nodal Ninja SPH-2L and have been very happy with the purchase. First rate support for a first rate product. No need to spend hundreds more when the Nodal Ninja will do all you need! Awesome product! - Richatd C. USA 
70 Bill, ...I really appreciate the personalized service that you provide. I'm always one to support a small business venture. That's particularly true when the product is good and fills a genuine need, like yours.... This feels almost like the corner family hardware store where I grew up. It was all about the service. They might not have everything right now, but they could get it. And, they wouldn't sell it to you if they didn't think it was exactly what you needed. Thanks again, - Dean F. USA 
69 The line of Ninja Pano heads has steadily improved over a very short period . The Ninja 2 was fully workable and made excellent panos. The ninja three which is still new to me. has hugely improved engineering, and is both nice to look at, but more important is excellent to use. This young company is in a constant state of product development, and I look forward to seeing their next offerings. I think what people will be impressed by most is the standard of customer service. Regards - Terry A. Saddleworth UK 
68 HI Bill,..This is a damn fine device. I absolutely love it!... thanks again and I'd be more than happy to lend you a satisifed customer quote! - David L. Big Bend Oregon 
67 My Canon 350D has the RRS L-Bracket that works in landscape camera orientation without dismantling the NN3. I'd recommend the L-Bracket (N3T30) big time! Overall I'm very impressed with the workmanship, concept and quality of the NN3. Don't know how you can sell it so inexpensively! - John V. PanoGuide.com forum 
66 NN3 is perfect for me. Its lightweight and supports my D200 perfectly. Bill has been super quick and goes out his way to answer my questions. There is no other product that comes close to the value for dollar spent. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. - Charles H. USA (Nikon D200) 
65 RE: Nodal Ninja version#3 Excellent value for the money - no doubt the best in the market for this price range. I own Kaidan and sorry I didnt learn of Nodal Ninja before I bought it. All the same features at hundreds less. I say YES to buying Ninja Ninja if you plan on doing any type of panoramas. - David L. USA 
64 Mine arrived yesterday - Thanks Nick. The new rotator does seem to be a bit of an improvement on the old one, but I am staying with the 15 degree indent plate as it allows me to go with either a 4 or 6 around without having to change anything. Definitely appears to be lighter with the use of the plastic knobs - but they appear to be very sturdy....All in all I am very happy, this product seems to get better with every release and at the price it is definitely a bargain! Thanks - martin, PanoGuide.com forum 
63 Got the NN3's this morn, Very happy, swapped the detent plate to the 45 degree one (which I will be using most for 4 shot)....its solid build quality and very sturdy, Very light(compared to others ive used) and its a bargain compared to others.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - rudders, panoguide forum 
62 My new NN3 arrived yesterday.... I have been quite impressed with it so far, using a 20D+Sigma 8mm combination. No problems setting it up and it looks very smart and neat....my first test pano came out well with good alignment of up and down shots.  - John H. UK panogude forum 
61 Hi Bill, First of all I would just like to thankyou for producing such a great product. I received the Nodal Ninja 3 a couple of weeks ago and I am extremely happly with it. The customer support that you provide is also top notch. It looks like things are kind of crazy with the orders, but this is good no? Regards - Adam C. USA 
60 My New Backpacking/Day Hiking Kit:,Bogen/Manfrotto 3444 CarbonOne - 3lb 12oz,Nodal Ninja 3 - 17oz,Canon XT + Sigma 18-200 - 2lb 3oz, Total: 7 lb, a 2lb 11oz savings from my old Bogen pano head which has already gone on 4 backpacking trips this year, plus several long day hikes. - Hermit, Colorado 
59 Mine arrived yesterday - Thanks Nick. The new rotator does seem to be a bit of an improvement on the old one, but I am staying with the 15 degree indent plate as it allows me to go with either a 4 or 6 around without having to change anything. Definately appears to be lighter with the use of the plastic knobs - but they appear to be very sturdy....All in all I am very happy, this product seems to get better with every realease and at the price it is definately a bargain! - Thanks Martin S. UK 
58 Got the NN3's this morn, Very happy, swapped the detent plate to the 45 degree one (which I will be using most for 4 shots)... Very light(compared to others ive used) and its a bargain compared to others.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - Forum Posting 
57 My new NN3 arrived yesterday.... I have been quite impressed with it so far, using a 20D+Sigma 8mm combination. No problems setting it up and it looks very smart and neat. For anybody wondering about clearances in the straight up position, here is a shot that might be of interest.....There's about 10mm clearance above the central knob as the camera is swung into position....my first test pano came out well with good alignment of up and down shots. Time taken to unpack from the carrying case and assemble the head and camera on the tripod is about 90 seconds. - John H. UK 
56 Hi Bill, Just wanted to let you know that the NN 3 is awesome. Thanks Jeremy M. USA 
55 What a cool gizmo!! Glad I selected Nodal Ninja #3. It fits nice in my bag and is very small. I am shooting landscape panos 180 degrees and like shooting in landscape mode. Good product I highly recommend. - Yours Jerrie G. Honolulu HI (Olympus E-330) 
54 I've been using the NN1 for the past couple of years and have been very happy with it. NN3 is so much better, nice going, Im glad I got it, thank you. - Roger C. Canada (Canon Rebel w/ 8mm Sigma) 
53 Thanks for the fast delivery. I shot numerous panoramas with the NN3 this weekend and I like it! Thanks - Jim C. USA (Nikon D200 w 18-200VR Nikkor)  NOTE: This lens is not recommended due to weight and length 
52 If your product is anything like your customer service response I would feel privileged to actively spread the word about your company. Thank you. - Michael F. USA 
51 Gee - those guys at (deleted) weren't very nice to deal with plus they wanted $600 dollars more for their tripod head than you. I decided to give your NN 3 a try - works for me! I bought bought a new Sigma lens with the left over. Thanks Randy T. Perth WA 
50 the nodal ninja is a serious bargain.  - John C. USA 
49 Hi Bill, Your service is just too good to be true. It's a real pleasure working with someone that knows customer service forward and backward. First just so you know, it is possible to swing the arm straight up to shoot a zenith with this camera and lens. It takes 8 shots to make a full 360 by 180 in portrait mode - 6 shots around, every 60 degrees and 1 up and down shot....My first shoot today went quite well and the stitching is working very well. It looks quite probable that I'll be extending my eval for quite some time - just a joke there - I'm pretty sure at this point that you've got a new happy customer. - Robert H. Chicago, Illinois (Canon w/10.5 Nikkor) 
48 Bill I will take the extra set as a back-up. I travel a lot and might loose some of these little parts...thanks again for the fine machine design. - Tom P. USA 
47 This is pretty nice. I see a lot of thought went into the design. It has a professional look to it as well and I'm not embarrassed to use it in public. Okay I might be a little vain but this isn't like some of those Rube Goldberg tripod heads out there. And thanks for the rebate off Panoweaver. Good Luck Guys! - Chuck M. Denver, Colorado (D200 w/ 10.5) 
46 Just in and used it straight away. Nodal Ninja 3 is easy to setup and use/ Personally I don't need the case because I keep it in a pocket in my camera bag. Excellent product and i'm keeping it! Sincerely - Luis D. Dallas Texas 
45 Hi, Nick did his homework on the new NN3 ;-) I'm very impressed with the quality. Making a light pano head even lighter and stronger works for me because I travel a lot and put this in my carryon luggage. The reversible detent plate is great too. I see I can reverse the one it came with but actually prefer having the 30 click stops. Works with the 8 and 10.5. I highly recommend this product to anyone needing a quality pano head without spending tons of cash. thanks again and kudos - Jerry A. New York NY 
44 Thanks for looking this up. I am getting to know the NN3, and it is a pleasure to work with (after my homemade job). I hope to start putting together some images made from 2 rows of images (I was unable to do this before), and would like to send some for your gallery when I get them finished. Sincerely, - Steve C. Riverside, CA. 
43 Hi, I received my Nodal Ninja today and it looks great - Thanks Raymond N. Hudson, NH 
42 I keep on using NN-SPH1a with my Powershot G5 for holiday travels. Thanks...it is great equipment. - Peter B, Netherlands 
41 I just received the new NN3 and I must say that I'm very impressed with the re-design! Regards - Greg P. New Market, Maryland (Nikon D50 w/ 10.5mm DX) 
40 want to thank you for a quality product. Keep going! Sincerely, - Benedict K. USA (Canon 350D) 
39 Hi - just got my new NN3 in - WOW!! Did a couple quickie panos in my living room and like the click stops. Easy to use and setup. I'm using a D200 with 10.5mm lens. It was well worth the wait. Having used the SPH-1 for for the last year and half this is a BIG upgrade. It looks great too! I'm only sorry the click stop plates are on backorder as I wanted to try them out with different lenses. Well done Nick - anyone else thinking about a pano head - give this a try - it's highly recommended - excellent support team too. thanks again - Charles B. California (Nikon D70s w/ 10.5mm Nikkor) 
38 Hello Bill, This is Tsun. I purchased your Nodal Ninja about 6 weeks ago and I had planned on using it to record the Himalayan Mountains. Well, I'm back! Took quite a few sequences for stitching. So far all look pretty good. Problem was the enormous dynamic range I experienced at over three mile elevation! Anyway, I really put the Nodal Ninja to a baptism by fire! I have suggestions on improving it and on HOW to use it. I disagree with the user manual in many many areas! But I still think that this is the best pano head. It's even better than my (deleted) unit which cost me about five time MORE! I've also bought parts from Bogen/Manfrotto and the combine price even exceeds that of my (deleted) and it was a total kluge! One very good feature of the Nodal Ninja, besides its rigidity is that it can be easily 'field-stripped' and cleaned. In some parts of our journey, it was rather dusty so before I put the head back in my bag, I cleaned it out so the dust won't be brought into my bag and polluted my D70, Fuji S2 and the several lenses I had in it. All of my panos were done with my D70 and with the 'kit' lens set at 18mm. I used it both in the landscape and the portrait orientation. To carry as little weight as possible, I brought along my newly acquired (just for this trip) Manfrotto 714B tripod. I mated it with a Manfrotto 3299 quick release adapter to which I had the quick release plate attached to the Nodal Ninja. Works wonderfully! Regards,  - Tsun T. Closter, NJ 
37 The Ninja Nodal works great with the new Olympus E-300 (Evolt)....it is actually very versatile because I can switch the direction of the mounting plates to suit my camera body. - Chip J. San Diego, CA 
36 Thanks for the followup Bill. Set up the NN and calibrated it for my Nikon D100 without mishap. A real rarity for me! My very first shots were almost perfect -- just had to reposition the camera on the upper arm to place the nodal point a little closer to that arm's pivot point. After that: 100%! Great product and reasonably priced for the quality!  - Charlie B. Vernon, CT 
35 Since we have purchased the Ninja, our results have been %110 better than using the tripod and leveling it and using software out there. Not only has the Ninja saved time but, it has also saved stitching errors. Thank you for your support and help.  - Luke A. Lethbridge, Alberta Canada 
34 As I have come to expect, your customer service is above and beyond expectations. And thanks for your honesty above and beyond the call of necessity. My wife and I own an animation art business as our "side business" and try to maintain a similar standard of business ethics/conduct. A pleasure doing business with a gentleman! Thanks Bob - Little Silver, NJ 
33 I'm using a Nikon D70 mounted vertically with a Sigma 8mm lens to shoot HDR panoramas. I'm shooting four positions at 90 degree increments. The Nodal Ninja has been a good solution for me so far. It's economical, lightweight and easy to assemble quickly. Thanks!  - Evan J. Toronto, Ontario Canada 
32 I'd just like to say that the Nodal Ninja SPH-1 has been a great tool in this first month of use! The finish is excellent, the construction sturdy, and the price unbeatable. My Panasonic DMC-LC5 works well with it, however I wish the off-axial adapter had slightly greater adjustment. The Nodal Ninja allows me to get close enough to the nodal point of my camera without too much parallax occurring. As a newcomer to panoramic photography, the Nodal Ninja has been a great investment. I was also very impressed by the next-day shipping of my order! Sincerely, Geoff F Santa Cruz, CA
31 I am using a Sigma SD10 -- without the external power pack/battery holder -- and the head works with that body and my 50mm/2.8 EX Macro lens, as well as the 18-50 and 55-200 kit lenses. The Nodal Ninja is easily capable of supporting this camera and a reasonable lens, and with the offset adapter can be used to hold the camera horizontally or vertically. Multi-row panoramas (why I bought the head) will be no problem.....I think your product rocks! Sincerely, John C. Bellevue, Washington 
30 Hello Bill, Thanks for letting me know the Nodal Ninja has shipped. You seem very much focused on customer service, easy to use website, keeping the customer informed, something I appreciate and try to acknowledge wherever possible. Thank you. In addition, it is nice to connect a human being with a company. I am looking forward to using the Nodal Ninja with my Nikon D70. Regards, Jene C. Apple Valley, MN 
29 And here is my first panorama with the NInja. My back yard. It worked perfectly. - Tony F. San Leandro, CA 
28 Hi Bill, The Nodal Ninja was received Thursday, I think. I made a pano with it Saturday and it was easy to set up and determine the node. I had hand-held my Nikon D70+10.5mm before which makes it tricky to create panos in PTMac, which I am learning to use. It's simple(r) with a pano-head and tripod. HA I like the NN's sturdy construction, ease of use, simplicity, and price. Your service and communications with me were very helpful. I'm going to enjoy using this device. - John F. New Albany, OH 
27 I received the Nodal Ninja some week ago and after some week of test I'm very please of this product. The construction of the bracket is very impressive. The graduate rules on the different arm of the bracket are very well engraved. The rotation around the vertical axis are quite smooth. Finally, the bracket is very stable with a Coolpix 5000. I do not try other high grade panoramic head, like the (deleted) or the (deleted). These products are surely well made ... but 499$ for a (deleted) spherical head ... no thanks ! - Ed - newsgroup posting 
26 I'm an amateur photographer and just started using digital photo equipment. I bought a Coolpix 8700 and after playing with the panoramic software they include in there package I decided to learn a bit more. Releasing how important this nodal point thing a friend of mine suggested a getting a adapter for my tripod so as to eliminate the parallax errors I was having. Didn't take much to realize the Nodal Ninja was right for me, inexpensive and does the job perfectly. Love the little carrying case too. My next investment might be some panoramic software but in the mean time at least I can create fun panoramic's around the house and yard. - Mark B. Sarasota Florida 
25 I don't understand why some companies charge so much for the pano adapters - all they're made of is metal - some plastic. Finally a company comes along offering a decent quality product at a decent price. I haven't bought a Nodal Ninja because I already own the expensive (deleted) (my configuration approx. $550). I would surely recommend anyone needing a pano head to consider saving a few bucks and consider the Nodal Ninja. Anyone want to buy a used (deleted)? - Luke B. Portland Oregon 
24 Don't leave your Nodal Ninja on the dash of your car on a hot sunny day, thing gets HOT! Glad it's made of metal or it would have melted. Nice durable unit, I'm very happy with it. - Doug H. Tempe Arizona 
23 I bought the Nodal Ninja for my D70, works great for my Real Estate stuff! Many thanks. - Sherri B. Hollywood California 
22 I currently use the SPH-1, and am very satisfied with it.  - Dr. Stephen R. Washington, DC 
21 You wanted feedback so here you go: I'm using a Dimage Z20 - I'm happy - and it's works great! Good Luck - Jim A. Farmington Hills, Michigan 
20 The first thing I have to say: you guys at Nodal Ninja are that you are doing a very good job and representing yourselves on the many many forum posts that I have read recently while researching this whole panoramic head market. I have full confidence that I will be treated fairly and with respect judging upon what I have seen communicated by posts representing Nodal Ninja. Thanks for you quick response, I respect companies with responsive customer service. - Scott D. Homer Alaska 
19 I just received my Nodal Ninja. I'm very pleased with the fit and finish, as well as the engineering. - Bob R. Bron Indiana 
18 Bill It arrived today. In fact I have it on my tripod and ready to try out. I appreciate all your help and speedy replies. I am most impressed with your level of service. Your unit is much better than my home made device, although mine did work. But the asthetics count as now I can at least look like I know what I am doing. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts and patients. I can say I will be a very happy users. Thank You, James F. USA 
17 I'm using NN with an Olympus E-500 with a 14-54 lens. (deleted) wasn't up to the task, but NN does just fine. I purchased the standard version (SPH-2S) and have a full range of movement except for straight up. For me, that's not a problem. I removed the set screw that does click stops as I prefer no stops. Once I did this I could rotate the mechanism counter clockwise and the tightening knob didn't loosen! - Thomas N. New York 
16 Thanks Bill, I just got through stitching together the first few panoramas I took yesterday using the nodal Ninja and I must say they worked out very well. The Ninja does that job at a very reasonable price and should pay for itself in no time. Irv M. Canada 
15 Order has been delivered. Fantastic Tool!!!!!!! Tested it, flawless quick stitch!!! - Dan F. Jackson, MS 
14 I finally had a chance to test the replacement bracket and it is really great! Seems a bit more solid especially when mounting the camera direct to the bracket. The detent is perfect and has made things so much easier.just count the clicks! - Bob D Felton, CA 
13 Bill, In today's world of phone menus and digital answers it is a great pleasure to speak to someone who knows what they are talking about and willing to take the time to make a call. I already have one friend very interested in your product. You said that you were a fairly new company, I wish you the best success but don't forget this personal touch when you get to the top. Happy New Year, - Leslie K Glastonbury, CT 
12 Hi Bill, I purchased the SPH-2L earlier in the week and received it yesterday. Although I haven't yet had a chance to use it, I am very impressed so far with the quality and compactness of the design - much smaller than my (deleted) but just as sturdy, maybe more so. I especially like the ability to break it down and stow it in the travel case - great for travel and hiking! Regards - Greg P. New Market, Maryland 
11 Hi Bill, the unit came yesterday and works great! I want to thank you again for your kindness and great services. To bad that there aren't more co.'s and people like you around. I use this for bird watching as a substitute for the Wimberley Sidekick (SK-100). I know your tripod bracket was primarily designed for shooting panoramics but thought others would like to know it works well for us bird watchers as a substitute for Wimberley Sidekick bracket. Great product - Thank you again - Adolph K. Kansas City, Missouri 
10 Bill, the customizability of the Nodal Ninja is very impressive: 1) Being able to change the click stops to various strengths (strong, off completely, or my preferred method, as light suggestions that can be ignored with longer lenses or used as every other stop reminders). 2) Resistance of both arm rotations. I definitely can tilt the base to take overhead shots and have enough resistance to keep the camera in place! This is a big deal to me! 3) I've found it easy with the parts provided to set the camera up in landscape mode on the main base for quicker, single row panoramas. I don't anticipate using this often, but it's great to know it's possible (still getting used to shooting predominantly in the portrait orientation). Thank you Rich M. Dartmouth, New Hampshire 
9 I recently purchased your product for my D50 and I must say I'm impressed with the compact design.  - Brien C. Tennessee 
8 Hi Bill, We have just received the nodal ninja, and so far we love it! I'm shooting a lot of panos it's turning out ok for a first timer, it's very easy to set up and very slick as well. thanks Bill.  - Pierre and Faith, Canada 
7 Thanks a lot for making a good quality head for a fraction of what everyone else charges! Until I came across your stuff, I was ready to settle with building my own simplified pano head. - Andrew M. Boulder Colorado 
6 Bill, Wow! If it doesn't put you out, that would be really great. I see that rumors of your superb customer service are not exaggerated in the least! Thanks, Ryan T. Orinda CA. 
5 Hello Bill, MY TESTIMONIAL TO YOU! & Picture of my unit. After countless hours of research, I have definitely done my homework well. The Nodal Ninja is by far the best INVESTMENT I have made for my photography equipment. I have already done several VR shoots with it and DEFINITELY your product is AMAZING! I am one satisfied customer! The quality is absolutely HIGH END MATERIAL. I recommend this product to anyone that is in search of a panorama TRIPOD HEAD! LOOK NO MORE this is it! Thank you for such a great product! - S.K. Calgary, AB, Canada 
4 I got the Nodal Ninja in today and tried it out. It is exactly what I needed. Thanks for providing a great product. - Dan R. USA 
3 Dear Bill - I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for the outstanding customer service you demonstrated last week. The CP4500 adapter plate was left out of my SPH2-L order, and I shot you a quick e-mail last week to that effect. I think that you must have read the e-mail within minutes of my sending it, and had the plate in the FedEx overnight shipping within minutes of that - I received it the next day!!!! Unbelievable. In this day and age, it is truly refreshing to encounter a company individual who actually cares about customer service. Thank you!!! You have made a believer out of me. Thanks in advance ..... - Mark V. USA 
2 Mr. Bailey, Thank you very much for the quick response. I have already spread the word about the design/ value of the NN to a few photo friends, and I will be sure to add high regards for your excellent customer service. Others on the internet have spoken very highly of their interactions with NN, and I'll certainly be doing the same. I wish my dealings with other internet vendors were so positive! Thanks, Douglas M. USA 
1 Hi Bill, Thank you so much. Received everything today [closed on Saturday] and I'm so impressed by your great service! I definitely recommend you guys to everyone I know! - John C. New York
