After researching and developing superior mechanical panoramic hardware for a decade, Fanotec is now pushing the envelope by incorporating robotic components to the design. A range of products developed from the ground up together with the robotic developments will replace some of the legacy products.
Nodal Ninja 6 (NN6) is the successor to Nodal Ninja 4 and Nodal Ninja 5, and is the first model that is compatible with the coming motorized rotator, capable of transforming into a 2-axis fully automatic pan/ tilt head with diverse functions.
It is also the first low cost ALL CNC machined panoramic head in the product line. We carefully examined the Ultimate line and listened to end user feedback to optimize these newer designs. By reducing the number of quick release components, overall cost is much reduced. The NN6's will have quality standards very similar to the Ultimate line incorporating hard anodized coating.
- Supporting up to 200mm equivalent focal length (camera in portrait orientation) with detent lock (higher focal lengths possible with free rotation).
Features of the NEW Advanced Rotator D10
Many people have requested a rotator that has the size of advanced Rotator D5 but with more detent options. Advanced Rotator D10 is the answer. It achieves the best balance of size and versatility.
- 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 with camera in portrait orientation.
- 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.
Weight: 2.02lbs (920g)
Lower rail: 200mm
Upper and vertical rail: 190mm
Note: Unfortunately there is no quick reference guide as of yet for the NN6 but very soon. The NN6 is built from the ground up with robotic add-ons in sight. It's a very intuitive design and works without issue for most. This product has been well tested in the field which is bringing in positive reviews by early users. However as with any new product we cannot test against all possible cameras and equipment configurations. As early feedback comes we are making little tweaks here and there to better the performance. If you see any need for improvements we would love to hear from you.
