THE SMALL JUST GOT SMALLER
If you are thinking of becoming a Google Business Photo Photographer, aka Google Trusted Photographer, we have 'the' perfect solution for you. Introducing the Google Ultimate R20 Static Tilt Head & Rotator Mini V2 Package. This is a single row panoramic head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye lenses. Built exclusively for the Google Trusted Photographer this head is smaller, lighter, precise and much less expensive than similar heads on the market. Precision so exact, users are capable of repeatable results. Our products are built with the highest quality materials, ensuring you the highest quality imagery. Of the models authorized for use in the Google Business Photos program, only one - the R10, is the recommended.
