Nodal Ninja 3 MKII

NPhoto - - Test Team -

You can mount your cam­era on the Nodal Ninja 3 in por­trait or land­scape ori­en­ta­tion Even if you shell out big bucks for the Manfrotto MH057A5-LONG pan head combo, you’ll still be limited to sin­gle-axis panora­mas. The fun of shoot­ing panora­mas re­ally be­gins with 360x180-de­gree spher­i­cal pans, which is where the Nodal Ninja comes in.

Thanks to the Ninja 3’s ro­tat­ing ver­ti­cal arm you can tilt your Nikon up and down as well as side to side. Use a fish­eye or wide-an­gle lens and you can cap­ture a com­plete vir­tual en­vi­ron­ment from the sky right down to your feet in as lit­tle as six shots.

Ev­ery piece of es­sen­tial hard­ware is in­cluded in the Starter Pack­age (just add soft­ware), and at 475g it’s ex­tremely por­ta­ble. The only draw­back is you’ll need to use a DX-for­mat or smaller Nikon as it won’t sup­port a full-frame cam­era, but other­wise this is a great-value gizmo.
