Hey guys, Just wanted to say “Thank you” for your efforts in overnighting (first thing) the correct rail. I ended up having to use one of my other 360 heads because I didn’t have time to test with my Nodal Ninja before the shoot. But I have tested it since then, and I must say I am impressed! Thanks for a great product and great support! Cheers - John

Meets expectations/Design/Functionality - 5 stars. I bought this after spending a couple of weeks trawling the internet for the best pano head I could afford, and all the time I kept coming back to the NN3. Very well made (I appreciate good engineering) and certainly strong enough for my camera, a Canon 5Dmiii. Really only 2 criticisms I have are firstly, a note or link in the box to set up/tutorial videos, as this was my first nodel point head would be useful, as I had to look up how to set it up for my camera/lens combination, and that took a while. Second is that if the arms were 1" longer, the range of cameras that would fit would be much greater, as the next size up for heavier, bulkier camera/lens setups is twice the price, putting it well out of my reach, so I have to put up with not taking the zenith point for a true 360pano. There is I note a T plate extension I can purchase, but I need to work out if the added dimension would be enough, so the above point is me being picky. Apart from that, I would recommend to anyone. - Duncan
Meets expectations/Design/Functionality - 5 stars.Does the job with an OMD em5+tripod+samyang 7.5mm. 6 pictures and I get a HD 360 image. Great tool... - Charles
Chuck S. Portland OR.
Hey Bill while you have heaps of products you've been very helpful in assisting me to make the right choice. I received the NN6 last week and even though you told there was no documentation on it you really don't need it. You do have some videos that helped but anyone familiar with basic panoramic heads will be able to mount and go. - Chuck S. Portland OR.
Bill, I have used several of your products in these pieces, especially nodal heads. Would be happy to provide a testimonial.
Rob, My shipment just arrived... as an engineer I love the design, fit/finish, robustness and packaging of the products. As a photographer I’ve made over 600 panoramas using Nodal Ninja. Look forward to making pole panoramas, John
RJ Rockwell
5 stars - By RJ Rockwell - Was on time and met my specifications.
4 stars - Beautifully Machined - Verified Purchase - This is a very nicely made product with excellent support from the manufacturer that performs its intended function perfectly as long as your camera is not too big. A Panasonic GH2 with Olympus 75mm lens fits with a little room to spare. My only complaint is the documentation. It comes with several bags of extra parts and only a printed brochure - no assembly instructions or operating instructions. After some searching I was able to locate these on their web site, but the instructions are not very detailed. Eventually it all makes sense, but don't expect to start using it right out of the box. If you want to use this with Arca-Swiss Q/R plates, you will have to purchase a lever - operated clamp from some other manufacturer as the clamp they sell is operated by a thumb screw that interferes with the operation of the device. In fairness they warned me it was not recommended and offered to let me return it if it didn't work.

Bill H.
Absolutely amazing piece of equipment (5 Stars) Just like everything I've purchased from Nodal Ninja and Fanotec. This is an amazing tool. It allows me to get some truly unique angles, and being a stable platform I can shoot long into the evening when other elevated options have to pack it in as soon as the exposure times get longer. Thanks Bill and Nick for your attention to detail and uncompromising quality! I'm always visiting the site to see what you've come up with next. (Can't wait to get my hands on that Pole 3 Extension!!) - Posted by Bill H.

Bill Bailey is a gentleman, a trustful business man that will go to great lengths to meet his clients needs and fulfill their all their requests. It's always a pleasure to deal with Bill Bailey and so far he has always met and exceeded my expectations. It is rare nowadays to find someone that you can talk to, make a verbal agreement and expect the person to fulfill it, Bill is such a person, if he tells you he is going to do something, he will, no matter what. Bill Bailey's company Nodal Ninja is second to none in the panoramic photography field regarding customer service, pre and post sales. I recommend Bill Bailey to everyone without any reservations. - Carlos Chegado, Photographer, Panedia.com

Photography Specialist in VR and 360 degrees panoramic imaging. I know Bill and his company for years. What strikes most is the service attitude Bill has. Always looking for solutions to make the VR and the panoramic industry better. Inventing new and better devices to produce a technical perfect panorama, high quality utensils and all for a fair price.

Over the past 12 years, we've tried a lot of rotators and various panoramic lens and equipment from nearly every known manufacturer on the planet. I've never been truly "satisfied" with any of them up until I met Bill from Nodal Ninja.

Gregory Panayotou, 360° VR Photographer & Multimedia WeB Developper, Greg Direct2Brain.net
Bill is the most professional, most friendly and most helpful person I've ever worked with, in the world of 360° photography. All the discussions I had with him led me to more accurately and more efficiencies in my professional work. I particularly liked his humility, his sense of service, advice and helpfulness (something quite rare in the world of 360° photography to be noticed). And beyond this, its equipment range Nodal Ninja, provides a level of strength and quality that is unmatched by its competitors, both in terms of price and in terms of quality. - Gregory Panayotou, 360° VR Photographer & Multimedia WeB Developper, Greg Direct2Brain.net
Trausti Hraunfjord, Panoramic Services
It is my pleasure to recommend Bill as a business relationship, and as a human being. The Nodal Ninja products represent a top quality range of panorama related items that far exceed one's expectations, and on the service front, it will be hard - if not impossible - to find any other company that is equally dedicated to service their customers as well as the people over at Nodal Ninja do. Professional service, professional quality and very affordable prices. My satisfaction with their products and services is such, that I have a link to their website through my panorama software website, and also in the interface of the main two panorama related software packages my company provides (Flashificator and Pano Cocoon). "Customer satisfaction" is something one will truly understand after using Nodal Ninja products and "Customer Service" is an unknown term until you have experienced their services. - Trausti Hraunfjord, Panoramic Services
Erik Vlietinck, Freelance tech journalist/reviewer, information creator, online publisher
I recommend Bill and his company wholeheartedly. When I wrote a review 4 years back on Nodal Ninja's then top-product, Bill helped me from start to finish. And as I am not a professional panorama photographer, I needed his help on more than one occasion. Nevertheless, Bill answered all my silly questions as if they were the most important thing he had to do (and I'm sure he had plenty of other work waiting for him). In contrast, one of Bill's major competitors was too arrogant to even consider working with me on a review. As for the Nodal Ninja products; I can vouch for their quality of build, sturdiness and accuracy. I also don't know of any other company that communicates so intensely and continuously with its customers and then puts their views in reality if it's technically feasible. - Erik Vlietinck, Freelance tech journalist/reviewer, information creator, online publisher
Vincèn PUJOL, Independent Computer Software and Photography Professional
Working with Bill is definitively an unique experience. I distribute since few years his products and it's day to day win/win relationship. Bill and his company are dedicated at tech support and assistance before and after sales, and fully committed on selling and developping products at best possible for customers. He takes great care to listen all customers/resellers feedback and personally handle them when needed. Bill is also someone very valuable for business advices and I own him a great reward for that for my own business. - Vincèn PUJOL, Independent Computer Software and Photography Professional
Tim Vollmer, Owner, Tim Vollmer Photography
It is my pleasure to recommend Bill, The Nodal Ninja products represent a top quality. These Panorama heads are perfect in fact. Nodal Ninja have certainly put a lot of thought into this.

I have yet to hear a single complaint. - Terry Montague, Partner at Regal 360 L.L.C.

Museum Photographer
5 Stars - Top Notch - M1L w/RD16-II review: This thing is solid. if you're using a DSLR to create panos then you need a tripod head that won't budge unless you want it to. With the Nodal Ninja you're paying for that quality engineering. The Swiss Arca system is simple and effective and you will find an assortment of accessories for your needs.I am using the Nodal Ninja for creating 360 panoramas to be used in virtual tours. Put it on a sturdy heavy tripod and you will get the precision required to minimize stitching errors and correction time. Don't forget to order an adapter that fits your specific camera.It comes in a nice quality case, doesn't fit perfectly inside but it looks & feels good! - Museum Photographer

M1-L: The best panoramic head that you can currently buy. I have been using this professionally for the last few years and there is nothing on the market that even comes close to ease of use. the click stops on the rotator are so great when shooting in low light or at night. You never need to frame the shot through the viewfinder, just rotate to the next click stop. - Tom B. USA

I have to say, I worked with my new Nodal Ninja 4 a LOT over the past weekend shooting a number of test photos (~300) of real estate interiors, and I'm impressed. Your equipment is really very well made. I do some higher-end real estate work commercially, both locally and in Manhattan, and also am working on spearheading a VR 360 tour with the Olympic Regional development Authority here in Lake Placid. It's a new addition to my work, but I'm excited about it. - Scott M. NY
Central Texas USA
Caveats. You really do need a steady tripod. The NN is solidly constructed, but it is still a series of cantilevers with a significant weight (the camera) at the end. Particularly for nightime long exposures, I find myself shortening the tripod legs and sitting on a stool behind the tripod. A stone bag or other tripod steading device helps as well. - Central Texas USA

5.0 out of 5 stars - It works for me. - I'm not sure why it took me so long to discover this excellent tool. I think it was because I was put off by very high priced versions of the same basic tool. With an a6000 size camera or Sigma Quattro, the default detents work well and after only a little bit of playing around I got it. I've put together excellent panoramic stitches without much effort. This tool makes that process so so so so much easier. It could be a bit thinner, a bit lighter, but for all factors considered, this thing just works. I think it would hold a small SLR also. update, works just fine with a D7200 and up to a 60mm macro lens (pretty heavy). - Dennis L.

I predominantly shoot 360˚ panoramas promoting expedition travel so I need rugged precision equipment that I can rely on when I'm shooting in remote locations of the world. I've used Nodal Ninja products for over 15 years and I can always count on the products and the company to keep me shooting in all situations. - Tony Redhead

Hi Bill, I received the Knob today for my rail and thank you very much! I lost the original one out on the Falcon’s football field, so I suppose that one is gone forever. Since they played a game in the Georgia Dome this weekend, I guess it has been cleated into the ground by now. Now I know to stick an O-Ring on the end of the thing so maybe I hope to never need another Knob Job from you ever again! Many thanks for the knob and what you do for us. With best wishes for your continued success, Very truly yours, - George S. Pearl, QPP / Atlanta Panorama / ALPS Labs

My NN4 irregular arrived yesterday. just three days after I ordered it. I am amazed at the keen eyesight your quality control folks must have because I have scrutinized the product very carefully and can detect no flaws that would cause me to call it a reject. It is certainly a testimony to the high standards of your company. I was also impressed by the fact that it is the first time I have ordered an item from any size company and had it arrive with a handwritten thank you from the CEO on the invoice. - Steve McIlree
Neil Jones / Wanganui, New Zealand
When a company gets customer service right the feeling is awesome. My problem, I needed a parts kit, a small item only a few dollars but online ordering prevented with courier costs. So I stopped my online shopping cart. A few days later an email saying about completing my order came through. I replied to this cordially and happily saying no problem and I understand courier cost US to NZ makes it a bonkers idea. Mere moments later a reply from Rob at Nodal Ninja letting me know that he agreed with the bonkers courier cost and will send me the repair kit and postage free of charge. I was already happy with the company and product but attention to small detail service like this is nothing less than outstanding. What they have done is guaranteed that all of my future and recommended purchases will be to Fanotec Nodal Ninja. Too many people are quick to shout and complain. Too few will shout to congratulate and applaud. Epic job. Thank you - Neil Jones / Wanganui, New Zealand
Dear Rob, This small message to tell you that the packet is well arrive in Cambodia, i have try our product since 3 evening and I should say that after more than 30 years photography, I don’t see a product so well finish as you’re at this day!

Dear Nodal Ninja people ... I thought I would drop you a line after 6 months on Nodal Ninja 5 ownership. My observations will be doubtless apply to the newer models. I procrastinated for at least 9 months before buying a Nodal Ninja head. What a fool I was. The quality is superb from the first moment you open the padded case it comes in. You notice the quality when using this superb head ... its precision really is a pleasure. After calibration (on a lazy Sunday afternoon), the time you save in setting up your shot is immediately apparent. This time alone is worth the price, even above the quality feel and operation of the head. Anyone wanting to do well at Panorama photography will NOT be disappointed. When you stitch the picture, you see the quality again ... The image stitches about 5 times as fast because individual images are so precisely aligned. Also, there are a few good you tube videos to help you align your body with all your lenses ...My sincere thanks to your company for making and selling this excellent product. - Mick Deutsch, Australia
When you don't any problems with your package is always great feedback. -

5/5: Product came as specified. Very satisfied. -
5/5: Excellent seller. They have the best customer support in the VR industry, bar none. I *highly* recommend them without any reservations whatsoever. -
5/5: Incredible seller, prompt delivery and great quality service. -
5/5: Nodal Ninja has been great to work with. However Amazon seems to a different story in attempting to return this item due to the need to purchase the bigger model. Again, working with the seller has been great but getting Amazon it issue the needed paper work to return the original order seems have developed into a no response issue. I will not be dealing with Amazon purchases in the future. -
5/5: Llegأƒآ³ a Chile sin problemas a travأƒآ©s de un courier. Todo muy bien! -

5/5: Item was as represented. Very satisfied. -
5/5: Good service -
3/5: I did not appreciate the fact you gave a me a charger with no cord to charge the battery also I did not like the fact that you did not include a strap for the camera and one of the batteries were broken.

Seller Response: we clearly stated this in item listing. You did get all items as described in listing. Sellers generally do not mention all the items a listing doesn't include - only the items it does include. Also buyer failed to contact us with concern or we have have gladly made generous restitution for misunderstanding.

5/5: Fast delivery. More than adequate packaging. Item delivered in exact condition as described. -
1/5: "Item Was Actually Not In Stock Even Though It Was Still Listed, Before they notified me about this I had already ordered the ink cartridges for it which I was not able to get a complete refund. I am highly disappointed with this seller. "

Seller Response: two orders came in for 1 item at same time - highly unusual but certainly not worthy of a 1 rating. We understand your frustration and apologize for the inconvenience. Inks are always returnable if unopened.

5/5: "Great Service! Thanks!" -
5/5: "Everything went just fine with my purchase." -
5/5: "Good deal; thank you." -
5/5: "Super; thank you." -
1/5: "I accidentally ordered two, but despite repeated attempts to contact the supplier both before the items shipped, and after they arrived, I could not get any response from the seller."

Seller Response: We respond to ALL concerns promptly. There are "no" emails from buyer through our website or Amazon.com store. He may have called after hours or left unclear message on phone. Rating of "1" is unfair and certainly unreasonable. We ALWAYS return calls. Even though it was buyer mistake we refunded total shipping cost.

4/5: Exellent

Seller Response: Why the "4" rating? If you ever have question or concern please never hesitate to contact us.

5/5: "satisfied for much" -

5/5: "quick delivery and quick response on contact." -
5/5: "Arrived very fast. Thanks for great service." -
5/5: "A definite 5 stars, and a BIG Thank You, Bill Bailey. When I inquired about the shipment date, Bill did not hesitate to upgrade the shipment option from "regular" to "express"... so that I could receive my Nodal Ninja on time for my trip. THANK YOU!" -
5/5: "Package arrived earlier than expected." -
5/5: This product is as described and is doing the job I needed it for at about half the price of some of it's competitor. I have have used it with a Canon 5d mkII and 24 - 905mm lens. but will be using a lighter lens most of the time. Thanks"d fast shipping, thank you!
5/5: "Service was fast and accurate. I called to ask about a T - plate adapter which wasn't included in the kit but I may have needed. I intended to pay for the part, yet when I called the seller, he went ahead and sent it out express mail at no charge. He obviously wanted to provide good customer service and he did. The product is great and I have no complaints.
5/5: "Product works well and as expected. Prompt delivery." -
4/5: The only difficulty was getting the merchandise delivered. USPS simply dropped off a slip indicating that item needed to be picked up at the P.O., although I was at home at the time. Perhaps USPS is not he best way to ship merchandise.

Seller Response: We do offer UPS and FedEx and by default we do ask for delivery confirmation so if not home they can only leave a pick up slip. Also the slip they leave many times allows you to sign giving instruction to the carrier to redeliver and leave at your door. We're sorry the experience you encounter, even though out of our control, made you feel our product/service was only worth a rating of 4.

5/5: "fast, great service." -
5/5: "The best customer service I have delt with." -
5/5: "Let me tell you, it does not come any faster. Trust me, these guys are a perfect "90"." -
5/5: "This is a great item, it does what it has to do perfectly well. I had a technical question and the answer came back within hours! Great product, great service." -

Just like everything I've purchased from Nodal Ninja and Fanotec. This is an amazing tool. It allows me to get some truly unique angles, and being a stable platform I can shoot long into the evening when other elevated options have to pack it in as soon as the exposure times get longer.

I have purchased items from Nodal Ninja in the USA and Red Door and 3D Tactical VR in the UK and have found all three excelent to deal with.... I have met Andrew and he really does know his stuff. However I have links to all 3 on my web site....The only problem with dealing direct with Nodal Ninja in the USA is the duty payable on items entering the UK and the £8 the Post Office charge to colect the duty, which is a great shame as USA prices are much keener than UK prices and I would have bought a Nadir Adapter for $34.95, but am recluctant to buy one at £51.54. - Hugh A.

It works as advertised. I attach the EZ Leveler II to my sturdy Manfroto tripod. To the EZ I attach the M1L. Using the M1l's bubble level I make adjustments to my tripod's ball head. Then I fine tune the level with the EZ until the bubble is centered. That's all there is to it. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend - RVDigitalBoy from Alachua, Florida

I'm convinced this is a critical tool. I've been doing panoramic photography for a short time, and I've been reluctant to plunk down a small chunk of money for a device like this, instead reverting to alternative ideas to make pans, i.e. fisheye lens adapters and lens rings. After my last road trip, and a few photographic epiphanies along that way, I decided to take the plunge and pick up this item. It's turned into a great investment. Using this device along with a simple point-and-shoot camera has taught me a ton more about shooting angles, no-parallax points, and just photography in general. It's also helped me understand better my camera's operational abilities and limitations. Do yourself a favor. If you are an aspiring panographer or just a typical spherical photography hack like me, plunk down the $[$]for this item, and also pick up a sturdy, headless tripod along for the ride. They'll both be worth the investment. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend - M. lopez CA

Hi Bill...I love your products and your service has always been excellent...Last year after the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami I thought it would be a real good idea to document the devastation with 360s so people could get a sense of the overwhelming scale. Also to document the progress at the same places a year later. I tried to figure out if there was a way I could do it myself but it was beyond I could pull off. Last month I bumped into the 360s by Akila Ninomiya with support from several 360-related companies but particularly by Nodal Ninja. I was glad to see that someone was able to do it. Those panos are so painful to look at but so important. Good on you for stepping up and helping! - Blaine E. Japan
Nick G. Canada
Hi Bill, First of all, congratulations on a great product – I’ve been doing a lot of research into 360 photography recently and the Nodal Ninja always comes out top of the pile when it comes to reviews! Thanks - Nick G. Canada

Using the Nodal Ninja for spherical panoramic photography will be a great asset to fortify our usual crime scene photographs. This will allow us to use a dynamic presentation to better potray the scene of any crime. - David A. Illinois

The NN Fanotec carbon fibre pano pole and tripod clamps were delivered promptly, were well packed and exceeded expectations of engineering and finish. In use the kit combines with my Gitzo cf tripod seamlessly and the combination works extremely well. Recommended without reservation! - John L. Bath

The item was dispatched on time as promised. It was easy to contact for any queries to be answered. Today, I have attached the GPS device to my Nikon D200 camera and taken a test picture. I have been able to Geotagg the image and the location is very close, within a reasonable tolerance. The only thought that I have had is I need to establish a suitable Workflow when considering working on 100s of images. Thank you - Peter A. UK

A very well engineered, ingenious product. It's sold 'flat-pack', so 5 stars for being complete down to the last washer! Obviously, it has to be sold this way, as you have to customise it to the dimensions of your own camera. The inclusion of a millimetre steel rule and the link to very user-friendly step-by-step instructions on the website makes everything straightforward. My only caveat is that I felt it it was slightly expensive (maybe we're still paying off the R&D costs?). However, when you compare it with the competition (Manfrotto, professional kit at professional prices), it's undoubtedly the best deal available for anyone who just wants to get into panoramic photography for the pleasure of it, but wants to get it right. - Bob G. Ely
Landon M. USA
What I like: Sturdy construction should last a long time, Rotator works really well and allows for click-stop rotation points from 3.5 degrees up to 120 degrees for lots of lens/field of view/coverage options. Not too heavy so will likely take it to most locations. - Landon M. USA
Richard P. Storrington
I bought the Ninja 3 Mk11 as a replacement for a Manfrotto 303, which was too heavy to carry for long distances. I am delighted with the Ninja 3 - it has all the functionality and accuracy that I require, it weighs very little and can be easily stowed in any camera bag. With the addition of an optional T bar it can be used with compacts etc that do not have a mounting screw on the lens optical centre. Highly recommended. - Richard P. Storrington
Sam R. USA - Panoguide Forum
i've dragged several different nodal ninjas all around the world for a few years now, they are incredibly durable and i have never had any sort of prob w any of my NN gear with which i have shot hundreds of panos with over the last 5 years or so, and i am not always the most gentle person w my gear... [deleted] was an ok head in its day when there were few other options, but these days it is a boat anchor, unnecessarily heavy and bulky, overpriced and outdated, and w nothing like the (best in industry) support provided by bill & the other folks at nodal ninja. - Sam R. USA - Panoguide Forum

Hi Bill, We got home from a successful 32 day road trip on US 89 last week. I really liked working with the Nodal Ninja 5. I could set it up quickly and it was very precise. I just did a post on our blog with a few of my shots and of a link to your site. - Jim - James Cowlin Photographs

Hello: The NN 3 is a fantastic tool to work with ... we fix this VR head on our motoriezed MK PanoMachine v. 3.0 => so it´s possible to make a full 360° panorama in only 3 seconds !!! The bracket is very light - that´s what I like very much… - Marc K. Germany

Mauro is one of the reasons people will return to Nodal Ninja. I have experienced one of the best customer service managers I have met during 40 years in business. Service minded, polite, intimately familiar with your products and their practical use, and very goal oriented. Mauro is one of the reasons why I continue to use Nodal Ninja - and plan to upgrade my line of Fanotec products during the next few months. With regards, Leif N. Denmark

hey bill - wow, thanks so much, RD16 is great, i was actually gonna borrow a friends for this shoot, ive got about 4 friends in NY who have picked up NN's lately, or are just about to, everyone is interested in shooting panos all of a sudden. You could give classes (ahem, [name deleted], cough) on marketing and social networking yourself, nick makes a great product, and the far ranging and proactive support you have provided is what puts NN in a class by yourselves, and is unparalleled with about any other product i can think of, too bad you dont have a brother working for nikon not that they would listen to him anyway… - Sam R.

Among the Best Solutions Product: Kolor Autopano Giga 3.5 (S1110) Posted By: Robert S - This product did an excellent job with a difficult 61 frame by 7 bracketed images indoor spherical panorama that had mostly dimly lit artwork but two large stained glass windows. The product matched up the 427 images flawlessly in a reasonable amount of time. Using 12GB of memory and 8 Xeon cores, it still takes over an hour but this is faster than competing products. No product that I have tested seems to handle the severe contrast of the bright and colorful stained glass juxtaposed to dimly lit features. I receive compliments on the work from non - professionals, but I may need to generate manual masks in Photoshop to get that last 2% of performance I am seeking. Overall, an excellent product, one I hope the developers continue to improve.
Posted By: Dariusz - This is one of those products that saves you time and makes your life easier. It is well built. I highly recommended it.

Hi Bill, Just said I'd let you know that last Sunday I was awarded the Irish Professional Photographers Association Photographer of the Year for 2010. This is something I could not have achieved without the use of your fantastic Nodal Ninja panorama head. THANKS - Peter O. Ireland
Jeff N - USA
Nodal Ninja Team, Thank you very much for taking care of me in such a timely manner. So far, I am very impressed with the quality of the NN products. It was more money than I was hoping to spend (even though I do recognize that it's not all THAT expensive), but I suffer no buyer's remorse. I feel like I've gotten more than my money's worth. On top of that, and as I've already said, I'm thrilled with the customer service. I feel like you've gone above and beyond and I thank you. - Jeff N - USA

It's not so much about getting it as it is you guys going the extra mile to try to make it right for me. It may be that it won't work at all (I hope that's not the case), but I'm not going to hold that against you. I think the "wings of support" are excellent and will keep me coming back. I also appreciate the return/exchange policy. You haven't developed a product and just rested, you keep developing new stuff. (I'm especially excited to pick up that little Nadir Jig you have coming soon.) End of gushing... starting to sound too much like a fan boy and not just a fan. - patella - Nodal Ninja forum

Hi Bill, I would like to send a note thanking you and the team at Nodal Ninja for the support and quality of products that you guys have been hard working on. It is during a recent conversation with my customers that made them truly understand that quality products alone is not enough and they are very very happy with the support that they have gotten from us. There was a few calls from 2 particular customers here in Singapore that stood out. I would like to convey their message to you should they not have emailed you directly yet...

Trausti, Panoguide forum
BECAUSE of the very positive comments about NN and having seen the HUMAN approach towards the customers, I have no reason to even consider buying a manual head from anywhere else. When those who buy a product are treated well EVEN when there may be some problems in the transaction or production or shipping dates expire etc, it shows that it's a company worth doing business with. I will be placing an order in the coming days, knowing that the service will be exceptionally good and friendly. Everywhere I have come across comments relating to NN, these have been positive. Both in private discussions and on public forums. There are "some people/businesses" who could absolutely benefit from studying and adapting the customer-care NN so blatantly has on public display. Will I find out when buying NN, that I get more than what I pay for, in contrast to other companies that claim their customers only get what they pay for? Time will tell. But it sure is good to see so many positive and happy customers leaving their comments. - Trausti, Panoguide forum

When I got home and I started to read the article. Your name just popped out. You were so helpful when I made the purchase. So thanks again! - Paul K. USA

Hi I have been a nodal ninja user for close to two years now and absolutely love it. I have been using a Nodal Ninja for 2 years now and i absolutely swear by it. My tutor allowed me to borrow his many years ago and I instantly fell in love with it. I still can't get over how cheap and easy to use it is. Also the customer service it brilliant being in the UK i actually purchased mine through red door VR but before i did i got in contact with this site asking them questions about the Ninja and I always received a swift response that was more than sufficient for answering all my questions. - Fern T.

Robert B. UK - Nodal Ninja Forum
Dear Nodal Ninja, I just thought that I would drop a quick message here to let you know of the great service I received from one of your resellers, Red Door VR. Last year I purchased a Nodal Ninja 5 Lite from them with the idea of upgrading it when the upgrade was released. When you announced your upgrade program here I contacted them asking what I would need to do. They promptly informed me that as soon as they had received the stock from yourselves they would announce their own upgrade program. Just before Christmas I was informed of the process, signed up and at the beginning of January they told me which bits to send where. I dispatched my parcel to them and the next working day, when they received it, they were good enough to drop me an email to let me know that it made it to them safely. After the upgrade they again emailed me giving me a tracking number if needed. It wasn't as it turned up safely the next day. After my experiences with Red Door VR, I would be more than happy to recommend them to others. - Robert B. UK - Nodal Ninja Forum

The Nodal Ninja performs better than the [deleted] and nearly identical to the $900 [deleted]. However, the Nodal Ninja is about 1/4 the size and weight, and breaks down small enough to fit into your pocket. I highly recommend the Nodal Ninja 3. For the price you can't find a better panoramic tripod head. No quality heads are lighter or more compact. You can't go wrong with this product.

Phil. - TheJuice - Nodal Ninja Forum
I bought my Nodal Ninja about three years ago. I have the first model, which have always been working great up to this day. I now own a 40D and it still does the job ! I am not a pro, but I like to be able to make the best possible panoramic photos, and in order to do that I really needed a device such as the nodal ninja… Inexpensive compared to others, and very easy to use. It is invaluable and I couldn't have made my panoramas without it. The new models are more expensive but as I've read, they offer a great deal of improvements. So that'd be great if I could win one of these top of the art goodies :-D Keep up the good work, Phil. - TheJuice - Nodal Ninja Forum

Thank you very much for a great product and an informative forum. I attended Jook Leung's first-ever 360 Degree Panoramic Workshop at the Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine in April.

Hi Bill, I want to thank you for your wonderful product. I'm a professional photographer and I use your head when I travel. I have other products that I use for my professional work. One product that I have was very expensive. $1045 is what it cost me plus shipping. I won't mention its flaws or name manufacturers but one day I decided to use your head with my Canon 15fe lens. I've since purchased other panorama heads because I need to do template stitching on most of my assignments. However I keep your head in my camera bag whenever I go out. Its the best backup a professional can have. Its also the best head to travel with. I also want to thank you for your superb customer service. I've dealt with many companies in the past. Your service tops them all. Great job and keep producing great products for the VR community. - Paul L. USA (Canon 5d and 15mmFE)

Micheal K. (dpreview forum)
Hi I purchased a Nodal Ninja recently and I wanted to post my results. The first thing you notice when you open the box is how well made it is. It is solid aluminum and there is no bend in it at all. It comes in two pieces with all of the accessories you might ever need for it (extra pads, extra plates, hex driver, etc) I was able to put it together and mount it on my Manfrotto 925b and mount my Pentax K10D on it in about 2 minutes without ever looking at the manual. I then took a quick glance to see about determining entrance points, and was taking pictures on my porch within 5 minutes. Very simple to use and very solid feeling..... I know there are other ones out there for a lot more money, but I can honestly say I can't imagine what might be better about them. The Ninja is built to last forever, and the customer support cannot be beat. Highly recommended. - Micheal K. (dpreview forum)
Graham L. United Kingdom
Bill, Wow.... I wasn't expecting that.... Thank you very much for the gesture, I sincerely appreciate it. I've been looking over forums etc for a while, researching panoramic heads, and I realised that you had a class outfit, but I have to say I really am taken aback, not to mention thoroughly impressed, by just how much you genuinely want your customers to be happy with their Nodal Ninja experience. Bravo! You have just relegated B&H and 17th Street Photo to positions 2 and 3 on my mental list of photography good guys! Once again, many thanks, - Graham L. United Kingdom

It was a quiet night on Mawson Station. Many people stayed up until the early hours of the morning watching a very spectacular aurora display over the station. Max temp:-4.0Min temp:-13.2 Max wind gust: SSE 57knots. This is a beautiful place for photography. I use a Nikon D200 with Nikon 17-55mm and 10.5mm lenses, this being mounted on my Nodal Ninja atop a Manfrotto Tripod 3001BN with the Manfrotto 3265 Vertcial Hand Grip. Because of NN's all metal construction it performs quite well in under such extreme conditions. Also being easy to setup and take down (one knob) makes it a valuable addition to my gear. A great product! Best Regards from the bottom of the world. - Megan D. Mawson Station Antarctica

Nick, you have a designed a product that suits my needs perfectly! I travel allot and always on the go, being single is tough :-). I don't do panoramas for a living but probably take more panoramas that many pros. It's a fun and a very exciting aspect of photography. The fact I can hike out into the desert or climb some hills and easily tuck this is bag is what sold me. The build quality, detents, and handy little case (snug fit) only adds it it's lure. Bill is tops! Give him a raise, opps, maybe not or you would have to raise the price :-). All kidding aside I hope you add this testimonial to your page as your panorama head is an excellent value for it's price. - Mike H. Flagstaff Arizona (Nikon D70s with 17 - 55mm)

“First Panorama with Nodal Ninja 3” I have to give two thumbs up to Nodal Ninja 3 at this time. I got the full kit which included the T-Adapter so I could do landscape panoramas in addition to a full spherical. It seemed like I figured out the Entrance Pupil for my Tamron 17-50 so I went out to San Diego Bay to try it out. What a piece of cake! I set my D70 to Aperture mode and set my focus to Manual after setting the Hyper focal distance. All I needed to do at that point was push the shutter, rotate 30 degrees and repeat. I didn't need to look through the viewfinder or anything else. It took about 15 seconds to shoot and I was done. - rklingman Discussion Forums @ Nikonians

“Review of the Nodal Ninja" Early thoughts on the Nodal Ninja I've recently acquired. The slings and arrows of life have kept me too busy to do anything with my Nodal Ninja until now; I've finally "calibrated" one of my lenses. Well thought out, well engineered, and very well made, and reasonably priced. Designed to be used with the camera vertical....Based on the pictures done while finding the "nodal" point of my 18-70mm at 18mm, (78mm set back on the Nodal Ninja) I think it will do just fine. - Bron Discussion Forums @ Nikonians

Hi Bill, That's brilliant. Much appreciate it. I've just put the NN together and I think it's brilliant. I had a (deleted) before which cost about $450 over here and it was crap. Absolutely terrible workmanship and so many design flaws. So happy new year and keep up the good work - Masten G. England (Nikon D50 and Sigma 8mm)
Dylan S. Brisbane, Australia (Canon 400D, 17 - 85mm IS USM)
Bill, Thank you for sending the 15/18 detent disc.... I have been doing cylindrical panos for 5+ years so I really like how I can now do the full sphere without the 5+ need for a super wide angle or fisheye lens. Your product is certainly the best I have seen and used for size, weight and price. Most appreciated, - Dylan S. Brisbane, Australia (Canon 400D, 17 - 85mm IS USM)

Brandon C. Ireland (Nikon D80 with Sigma 8mm)
Thanks to Rosauro's tutorial, it gave me some ideas I hadn't thought of....it was very well done and must have taken time to produce. It helps to have stuff like this out there for us newbies.. - Brandon C. Ireland (Nikon D80 with Sigma 8mm)
Mic W. Berlin Germany
Please add this to your testimonial site....your product is superior, I haven't had to use your support but have heard it's superior as well. I use Nodal Ninja on almost a daily basis for work and play. I had to take a recent flight and the guy at the security gate asked me to explain what it was. Guess when they saw it folded up that I might be concealing something dangerous. Product and support are the two main ingredients to success and of course price. It's good to know I have a company behind me if something breaks or goes wrong. - Mic W. Berlin Germany

I broke my Nodal Ninja oh no! Bill was super quick and more than fair in offering replacement part. You didn't leave me hanging. Thank you - S.S. Fairbanks Alaska
Dana F. Austria
OKAY, you have rave reviews but let's see if you post this one. I'm not happy with with your Nodal Ninja, why? Because it doesn't fit medium format cameras. The design and build quality are undeniably but it just doesn't support the big guns. I'm not going to return it though as I may step down to a DSLR one day. So with that said I do believe that once I step into the world of DSLR I feel this will be a welcomed addition to my gear. Regards - Dana F. Austria
Randy M. Miami Florida (Canon Rebel)
I just bought a used Nodal Ninja on eBay. I was disappointed to hear you don't offer a warranty but with the model being over 2 years old I understand. This Nodal Ninja was sent through the grinder but it all still works perfectly. I do single row pano's and had to send you an e-mail telling you and your readers (assuming you want to post this on your website) that the product is smartly designed. I'm a bit of cheap guy and would buy used before buying new but may after a few months consider the new model for it's click stop feature. Good luck and keep on keeping on. - Randy M. Miami Florida (Canon Rebel)
Darly H. Chico, CA (Nikon D50 18mm Kit Lens)
Bill, the link you put on your site lead to my first job!! Now the pressure is on to produce some primo work. I got the hardware down but need to learn the software end. I appreciate your recommendations and assistance, you go above and beyond. - Darly H. Chico, CA (Nikon D50 18mm Kit Lens)

I have to give you my two cents worth. Nodal Ninja model 3 has been and continue to perform well. It fits into my camera bag nicely and the setup is quick and painless. Thanks guys! - Mark W. South Africa (Canon 20D w/ Sigma 8mm)

Hey - the tutorial posted on your website is a nice addition. I realize it's geared towards specific cameras and software but gives me an idea of what to expect if I want to do full panoramas. - Robert B. Sedona AZ
Georg. R. Maine (Nikon D70s/10.5mm)
Got it! Had a bit of wobble and you were quick to address my concerns. I did as you suggested (in the FAQ page) and works perfectly now. We're planning a trip to Europe soon and this will be great because it fits in my pack nicely. Wishing you the best of success in the New Year. Many Thanks! - Georg. R. Maine (Nikon D70s/10.5mm)

Perry J. USA
Just want to say how very impressed I am with the improvements. Now I can set up and level the head in record time. The results are consistent. I no longer need the extra level. Stays dead on throughout the entire rotation. No more guesswork, adjusting and readjusting. Perhaps these differences are subtle to some, but they are major to me. Great workl!!! You took a nice product to perfection. My hat's off to you. I would be interested in new products you might come out with down the road. - Perry J. USA

Ken A. Auckland, New Zealand
Dear Bill The parcel arrived at school from the States on Friday exactly as promised. I assembled the head without difficulty, made the adjustments for my camera and did a trial shoot on “One Tree Hill” an extinct volcanic cone fortified by Maori around 1,000 years ago. The equipment worked very well, in fact the most easily stitched image I have ever made.....Thank you for a great piece of equipment at a very reasonable price. Thanks also for the prompt delivery. Best wishes - Ken A. Auckland, New Zealand
Thanks Gary D. Selah Washington
Hi Bill, FYI I wanted to let you know I attended a meeting in Seattle that was having a demo on Realviz & (deleted) and afterwards I carried in your Nodal Ninga and Quite a few of the people were impressed and even the presenter from San Francisco was very interested, So you probably will get a few orders from the Seattle Area. Living 150 miles from anywhere in Selah WA, It is a treat to find an actual hands on demo and anybody who even has an Idea of how to go about this process I am working on a business plan for Small start up that centers around all the elements using panoramas and It Was nice to let them know a Real Person Responded to my Inquiry from a supplier. - Thanks Gary D. Selah Washington
Rodriguez R. Spain (Canon 20D 18 - 200 Tamron)
Nick, I love this design. I do a lot of travel so size and weight are important considerations for me. For the money your product fits the bill perfectly. Personally I don't using click stops because I shot at so many different focal length so having a ring with 0 clicks is best for my Tamron 18-200 lens. Thank you. - Rodriguez R. Spain (Canon 20D 18 - 200 Tamron)
Greg T. Fort Worth Texas (Nikon D200 10.5mm Nikkor)
I really appreciate it! I think your product is by far the best on the market when it comes to price/value/usability. I am really glad that your business is going well and I'm grateful that you take care of old customers like me! You can bet that anyone who asks me about panoramic heads is directed your way. I actually get quite a few inquiries about my panoramas and how I made them and Nodal Ninja and PTGUi are the two products I always recommend! Again, thanks so much! - Greg T. Fort Worth Texas (Nikon D200 10.5mm Nikkor)
Vic. Z. Iowa USA
Wasn't sure what all the hubbub was about until I decided to buy and try a Nodal Ninja. Nick has developed an excellent product at a very fair price.

Henk, Netherlands
Perfect and fast delivery. Box received in good order (was marked 'extremely urgent' - always good to feel important :-) The rig is of excellent quality....I immediately installed the 15-degrees index ring. 15-30-45-60 is an excellent range and can be read on the degrees scale (easier than 12-24-36-48. The 20mm extender-T is an essential accessory - it delivers both extra height (necessary for 77mm filter diameter lenses like the 17-40L) and extra depth. Without it it wouldn't be possible to use a 20D or 5D with the 17-40. Thanks for the good service and good luck with the business. - Henk, Netherlands
Jason L. USA (Nikon D70S w/ Tokina AF 19 - 35mm)
From what I've seen on the market so far, you have the best product for cost. Simple yet durable, fully functional yet inexpensive... and the portability is the big bonus! Especially for me since I'm a backpacker and usually shoot in VERY remote locations. I don't know why everyone else is asking so much for these convoluted, bulky types of setups... YOU have the RIGHT idea! Realistically, a head like this should not cost more than the camera it's holding. Thank you for selling a product that lets us up and coming "starving artist" types play on a par with all the big shooters. - Jason L. USA (Nikon D70S w/ Tokina AF 19 - 35mm)
Eduardo H. Canada
Hey Bill,I just got it today (09/12)! Man, this head is really cool stuff, congratulations! I'll set it up for my camera tomorrow... I guess that shooting panos will be even more fun now. :) The look and feeling of it are even better than I imagined, very well developed and built and absolutely streamlined. Beautiful! I very much appreciate your support, it's awesome! I'd read some very good comments about it on some forum, panoguide I guess, but now I had the chance to go through it myself and I'm very happy about it. Thanks a lot once more, Eduardo H. Canada 
Gary O Charlotte, NC
Hi, Bill: I shot 6+2 with the Sigma and PTMac/Emblend cleaned it up nicely. For the first time ever, I can shoot a good zenith!! What a huge difference in my work. Not to mention cutting the weight of my rig in half. I also got a carbon fibre tripod made by Amvona (China knockoff of a Gitzo) from eBay. I'm really happy to have a rig that comes in at just a skosh over 4 kg. I've got the 10.5, I guess now is the time to learn to use it...cheers! - Gary O Charlotte, NC
Dennis H. Mexico City, Mexico
The Nodal Ninja arrived this afternoon, Bill. I hooked it up to my Konica Minolta 7d with an 85mm lens and it worked beautifully. Thanks so much for the extra effort in getting it to me. I hope to add to your testimonials page in a couple of weeks. Should anyone from Mexico ask for the Nodal Ninja, you can tell them that the only additional charge was $310 pesos (about US $30) at customs. Thanks again. I am very pleased. - Dennis H.

Bill, ...I really appreciate the personalized service that you provide. I'm always one to support a small business venture. That's particularly true when the product is good and fills a genuine need, like yours.... This feels almost like the corner family hardware store where I grew up. It was all about the service. They might not have everything right now, but they could get it. And, they wouldn't sell it to you if they didn't think it was exactly what you needed. Thanks again, - Dean F. USA

RE: Nodal Ninja version#3 Excellent value for the money - no doubt the best in the market for this price range. I own Kaidan and sorry I didnt learn of Nodal Ninja before I bought it.

martin, PanoGuide.com forum
Mine arrived yesterday - Thanks Nick. The new rotator does seem to be a bit of an improvement on the old one, but I am staying with the 15 degree indent plate as it allows me to go with either a 4 or 6 around without having to change anything. Definitely appears to be lighter with the use of the plastic knobs - but they appear to be very sturdy....All in all I am very happy, this product seems to get better with every release and at the price it is definitely a bargain! Thanks - martin, PanoGuide.com forum

Hi Bill, First of all I would just like to thankyou for producing such a great product. I received the Nodal Ninja 3 a couple of weeks ago and I am extremely happly with it.

Robert H. Chicago, Illinois (Canon w/10.5 Nikkor)
Hi Bill, Your service is just too good to be true. It's a real pleasure working with someone that knows customer service forward and backward. First just so you know, it is possible to swing the arm straight up to shoot a zenith with this camera and lens. It takes 8 shots to make a full 360 by 180 in portrait mode - 6 shots around, every 60 degrees and 1 up and down shot....My first shoot today went quite well and the stitching is working very well. It looks quite probable that I'll be extending my eval for quite some time - just a joke there - I'm pretty sure at this point that you've got a new happy customer. - Robert H. Chicago, Illinois (Canon w/10.5 Nikkor)

Bill I will take the extra set as a back-up. I travel a lot and might loose some of these little parts...thanks again for the fine machine design. - Tom P. USA
Chuck M. Denver, Colorado (D200 w/ 10.5)
This is pretty nice. I see a lot of thought went into the design. It has a professional look to it as well and I'm not embarrassed to use it in public. Okay I might be a little vain but this isn't like some of those Rube Goldberg tripod heads out there. And thanks for the rebate off Panoweaver. Good Luck Guys! - Chuck M.

Charlie B. Vernon, CT
Thanks for the followup Bill. Set up the NN and calibrated it for my Nikon D100 without mishap. A real rarity for me! My very first shots were almost perfect -- just had to reposition the camera on the upper arm to place the nodal point a little closer to that arm's pivot point. After that: 100%! Great product and reasonably priced for the quality! - Charlie B. Vernon, CT
Luke A. Lethbridge, Alberta Canada
Since we have purchased the Ninja, our results have been %110 better than using the tripod and leveling it and using software out there. Not only has the Ninja saved time but, it has also saved stitching errors. Thank you for your support and help. - Luke A. Lethbridge, Alberta Canada

Thanks Bob - Little Silver, NJ
Evan J. Toronto, Ontario Canada
I'm using a Nikon D70 mounted vertically with a Sigma 8mm lens to shoot HDR panoramas. I'm shooting four positions at 90 degree increments. The Nodal Ninja has been a good solution for me so far. It's economical, lightweight and easy to assemble quickly. Thanks! - Evan J. Toronto, Ontario Canada
John C. Bellevue, Washington
I am using a Sigma SD10 -- without the external power pack/battery holder -- and the head works with that body and my 50mm/2.8 EX Macro lens, as well as the 18-50 and 55-200 kit lenses. The Nodal Ninja is easily capable of supporting this camera and a reasonable lens, and with the offset adapter can be used to hold the camera horizontally or vertically. Multi - row panoramas (why I bought the head) will be no problem.....I think your product rocks! Sincerely, John C. Bellevue, Washington
Tony F. San Leandro, CA
And here is my first panorama with the NInja. My back yard. It worked perfectly. - Tony F. San Leandro, CA
John F. New Albany, OH
Hi Bill, The Nodal Ninja was received Thursday, I think. I made a pano with it Saturday and it was easy to set up and determine the node. I had hand-held my Nikon D70+10.5mm before which makes it tricky to create panos in PTMac, which I am learning to use. It's simple(r) with a pano-head and tripod. HA I like the NN's sturdy construction, ease of use, simplicity, and price. Your service and communications with me were very helpful. I'm going to enjoy using this device. - John F. New Albany, OH
newsgroup posting
I received the Nodal Ninja some week ago and after some week of test I'm very please of this product. The construction of the bracket is very impressive. The graduate rules on the different arm of the bracket are very well engraved. The rotation around the vertical axis are quite smooth. Finally, the bracket is very stable with a Coolpix 5000. I do not try other high grade panoramic head, like the (deleted) or the (deleted). These products are surely well made ... but 499$ for a (deleted) spherical head ... no thanks ! - Ed - newsgroup posting
Mark B. Sarasota Florida
I'm an amateur photographer and just started using digital photo equipment. I bought a Coolpix 8700 and after playing with the panoramic software they include in there package I decided to learn a bit more. Releasing how important this nodal point thing a friend of mine suggested a getting a adapter for my tripod so as to eliminate the parallax errors I was having. Didn't take much to realize the Nodal Ninja was right for me, inexpensive and does the job perfectly. Love the little carrying case too. My next investment might be some panoramic software but in the mean time at least I can create fun panoramic's around the house and yard. - Mark B. Sarasota Florida

The first thing I have to say: you guys at Nodal Ninja are that you are doing a very good job and representing yourselves on the many many forum posts that I have read recently while researching this whole panoramic head market.

Bill It arrived today. In fact I have it on my tripod and ready to try out. I appreciate all your help and speedy replies. I am most impressed with your level of service. Your unit is much better than my home made device, although mine did work. But the aesthetics count as now I can at least look like I know what I am doing. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts and patients. I can say I will be a very happy users. Thank You, James F. USA 
Thomas N. New York
I'm using NN with an Olympus E-500 with a 14-54 lens. (deleted) wasn't up to the task, but NN does just fine. I purchased the standard version (SPH-2S) and have a full range of movement except for straight up. For me, that's not a problem. I removed the set screw that does click stops as I prefer no stops. Once I did this I could rotate the mechanism counter clockwise and the tightening knob didn't loosen! - Thomas N. New York

Bill, In today's world of phone menus and digital answers it is a great pleasure to speak to someone who knows what they are talking about and willing to take the time to make a call.

Hi Bill, the unit came yesterday and works great! I want to thank you again for your kindness and great services. To bad that there aren't more co.'s and people like you around. I use this for bird watching as a substitute for the Wimberley Sidekick (SK-100). I know your tripod bracket was primarily designed for shooting panoramics but thought others would like to know it works well for us bird watchers as a substitute for Wimberley Sidekick bracket. Great product - Thank you again - Adolph K. Kansas City, Missouri

Hello Bill, MY TESTIMONIAL TO YOU! & Picture of my unit. After countless hours of research, I have definitely done my homework well. The Nodal Ninja is by far the best INVESTMENT I have made for my photography equipment. I have already done several VR shoots with it and DEFINITELY your product is AMAZING!

Dear Bill - I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for the outstanding customer service you demonstrated last week. The CP4500 adapter plate was left out of my SPH2-L order, and I shot you a quick e-mail last week to that effect. I think that you must have read the e-mail within minutes of my sending it, and had the plate in the FedEx overnight shipping within minutes of that - I received it the next day!!!! Unbelievable. In this day and age, it is truly refreshing to encounter a company individual who actually cares about customer service. Thank you!!! You have made a believer out of me. Thanks in advance ..... - Mark V. USA
