Nodal Ninja is relocating to Hong Kong

Nodal Ninja RS-1 is the best of both worlds

Starting October 28, 2019, Nodal Ninja will close its US operations and relocate its headquarters to Hong Kong, under the control of Nick Fan of Fanotec International.  U.S. sales will now be handled by B&H Photo.

Nodal Ninja is the renowned maker of panoramic heads that have been relied upon by virtual tour professionals for many years.  Unfortunately, the market for DSLR / mirrorless panoramas has been shrinking, in no small part due to the popularity of all-in-one 360 cameras.  Here is the official announcement.

  • I bought a Nodal Ninja 6 last year for my old canon rebel t3i DSLR. Even with that old camera, the quality of 360 photos I can capture with with it far exceeds the quality of any of my consumer 360 cameras I currently own (I own a few). That said, it is a time consuming and technical process reserved for the professional or enthusiast. I can see why the market for the nodal head is shrinking with the improvement in 360 camera technology and the convenience of just a button click. Eventually even all the professionals will shift over to the new technology and the nodal head will probably be a curiosity for future generations to laugh about saying ‘My grandad had one of those!’

  • Came here to say that I need an upgrade, and can’t find official Nodal Ninja products inside China – oh, the irony!

    Hope they start trading there soon, may have to jump across the border to get what I need.
