Nodal Ninja 5 w/ RD-16 Rotator
- Product Details
Nodal Ninja is a specially designed panoramic tripod head crafted to meet specific needs of the panoramic photographer. If you are looking to seamlessly stitch panoramas free of parallax while simplifying your workflow then you've come to the right place. This award-winning lightweight panoramic tripod heads are precision built to do just that. And being universal they will work with just about any camera and lens.
Once a camera is properly mounted on a pano head the photographer is able to take multiple images, horizontally and/or vertically, without any subsequent parallax error. Parallax, simply put, is the apparent shifting of objects in the foreground to the background. There is a point inside every lens called the No Parallax Point (NPP). The proper technical term is "entrance pupil" but many refer the NPP as the nodal point, hence Nodal Ninja. Eliminating parallax is key when needing to "seamlessly" stitch adjoining images together to form a single composite.
