The NN3 has evolved over its 12 year culmination of production from the NN1 in 2005 to the NN3 MK3 in 2017.
The latest generation "MK3" is created using state of the art computer-controlled cutting (CNC) machines resulting is greater precision, uniformity and cross compatibility. Small, sleek, and sexy. The NN3 MK3 is lightweight and compact. Arca-Swiss compatible and like the MKII suitable for compact cameras, Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, and even smaller DSLR's with lens up to 50mm. Very similar in design function to it's big brother the NN6.
NN3 MK3 utilizes Rotator Mini or Rotator D10 as the lower rotator, which are used in other Nodal Ninja panoramic heads. It also shares many parts and accessories with NN6, making the whole system much more versatile and cost effective when shifting or upgrading to other models. Like NN6, the MK3 is compatible with the automated rotators (Mecha
), capable of transforming into a 2-axis fully automatic pan/ tilt head with diverse functions.
Special surface treatment in upper rotator to increase the friction for much larger loading than NN3 MKII.
: 3.3lb (1.5kg) with Rotator Mini and 7.7lb (3.5kg) with Rotator D10.
