Introducing the NEW NN3 MK3
The NN3 has evolved over its 13-year culmination of production from the NN1 in 2005 to the NN3 MK3 in 2017. The latest generation "MK3" is created using state of the art computer-controlled cutting (CNC) machines resulting in much greater precision, uniformity, and cross compatibility. Small sleek and sexy. The NN3 MK3 is lightweight and compact. Arca-Swiss compatible and suitable for compact cameras, Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, and even smaller DSLR's with lenses up to about 50mm.  Very similar in design function to it's big brother the NN6.
 
NN3 MK3 utilizes either the Lower Rotator Mini (F1235V) or the Lower Rotator RD10 (F1140). It also shares many parts and accessories with NN6, making the whole system much more versatile and cost effective when shifting or upgrading to other models. Like NN6, the MK3 is compatible with the coming motorized rotators, capable of transforming into a 2-axis fully automatic pan/ tilt head with diverse functions.

Special surface treatment in upper rotator to increase the friction for much larger loading than NN3 MKII.

Maximum load: 3.3lb (1.5kg) with Rotator Mini and 7.7lb (3.5kg) with Rotator D10.

The NN3 MK3 is available in 4 complete package configurations:

The Nodal Ninja 3 MK3 can also be purchased without a lower rotator - click here to see all configurations. If you would like to shoot the nadir (down shot or footprint) purchase NN3 with nadir adapter (NA). The NA allows you to easily swing the vertical assembly allowing camera to point straight down to the ground.


Lower rotator options:

Rotator Mini (F1235)- smallest and lightest rotator, single click options. If pre-installed with 12 degree ring this will give you the feel of 30 stops during 360 degrees of rotation. You can swap out the detent ring with use of hex key. This is preferred if you shoot primarily using one lens. 
Available rings (detent click stops):

  • 120° (3 stops)
  • 90° (4 stops)
  • 72° (5 stops)
  • 60° (6 stops)
  • 45° (8 stops)
  • 36° (10 stops)
  • 30° (12 stops)
  • 25.7° (14 stops)
  • 18° (20 stops)
  • 15° (24 stops)
  • 12° (30 stops)
  • 10° (36 stops)

Advanced Rotator D-10 (F1140) - This is our newest rotator. No interchanging of rings - to change click stop options merely move detent plunger knob from hole to the next. This is very handy when shooting with different lenses such as fisheye to 50mm. Features: Compact, lightweight with 10 detent options ranging from 90 to 5 degrees that can be changed on the fly. Suitable for fisheye, wide angle and telephoto lenses up to 200mm equivalent focal length.
10 different degree stop increments (with equivalent number of stops around) include:

  • 5 (72 stops)*
  • 7.5 (48 stops)*
  • 10 (36 stops)
  • 15 (24 stops)
  • 18 (20 stops)*
  • 30 (12 stops)*
  • 36 (10 stops)
  • 45 (8 stops)*
  • 60 (6 stops)
  • 90 (4 stops)
  • *Requires dual detent plungers.
