Part in a series of Nodal Ninja's new top of the line CNC machined advanced rotators. These rotators combines 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 RD5 has 4 different selectable click options suitable for wide angle and standard focal length shooting (approx. 50mm). Features you'll find in this new class of rotators.
> Nodal Ninja Rotator Handle: In order to reduce stress on the lens and camera body during rotation, we are making a handle for the advanced rotators. Although it is designed for R1/10 with Rotator D5, it will work for Rotator D4/8/12/16. This handle screws directly into one of the unused holes in the advanced rotators.
Made from imported premium quality aluminum alloy.
