Product Description

Our top-of-the-line Nodal Ninja Ultimate M1-L Modular System is the designers dream come true. It is based on Arca Swiss compatible system, the industry standard for high end photographic support system. The upper rotator incorporates 7.5 degree positive stops and the lower rotator is the advanced RD16-II (see features below). The M1-L is compatible with all DSLR's and most medium format cameras supporting lenses up to 200mm. Precision CNC machined from premium T6061 aluminum and anodized, the M1-L is built with high degree of precision, accuracy, durability to ensure a lifetime of use. The first model in this modular system is the M1 which has 7.5 degree precise positive stops at the upper rotator, supporting lenses from ultra wide angles to 200mm telephotos. It allows templates to be used to speed up stitching and reduce stitching errors.

The package comes with standard 170mm upper rail - if shooting with longer lenses you might want consider opting for the longer 210mm rail (during check out).

Advanced Rotator RD-16-II

Part in a series of Fanotec's new top of the line CNC machined advanced rotators. These rotators combine high precision, ease of use, compactness, light weight and durability. The inner ball bearing construction also provides for very fluid rotation. You can now change click stops on-the-fly. Ideal in time sensitive situations in which shooting must be completed quickly, such as in shooting high resolution multi-image mosaics or shooting the same scene at different focal lengths. The RD16-II has 16 different selectable click options suitable for wide angle, standard and long focal length shooting to approx. 200mm.

Features you'll find in this new class of rotators:

  • Blue marker ring which can be rotated to mark points on lower rotator (2nd generation feature).
  • Movable index ring - rotate the index ring to any predetermined positiion (2nd generation feature).
  • Made from imported premium quality aluminum alloy.
  • Precision CNC machined components.
  • Lubricated steel ball bearings for smooth rotation.
  • Laser engraved markings.
  • Detent interval (click stop) option can be changed on the fly.
  • More than 10 kg (22lbs) loading supported.
  • Detent interval can be changed in seconds on the fly.
  • Knob for locking rotation.
  • Retainer wire so you don't lose the knobs.
  • Ideal for making HDR panos and/or mosaics.
  • Great in windy locations.
  • Small nadir footprint.
  • Small nadir footprint diameter of 62mm.
  • The unique placement of knobs means that they will never appear in the spherical panos.
  • Fine 2.5 degree rotation markings for making high resolution mosaics.
  • Compact and light weight - only 347 grams.

  1. High quality realibilty

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Jun 2013

    I've been using the M1 at work almost daily for six months. I love that I can feel so confident about my ability to nail the Nodal point in the setup every time. And also I love the detents in the RD16 and the vertical rotator. If I want to go back and get another shot at a previous position, it's no problem, as the detents tell me exactly where that shot was taken! The gear is reliable and very accurate! The two words don't usually go hand in hand with hardware :). Thank you Bill!


  2. Ultimate M1-L w/RD16-II

    Posted by Wolfgang Fuchs, Germany on 20th Feb 2013

    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.
