Great solution for those needing a leveling device. This exclusive design combines the NN3 MKII with the built-in EZ-Leveler-II incorporating 3 detent options- 6, 8 or 30 stops (60, 45, 10 degrees). Users can also now adjust and fine tune their leveling through the use of 3 easy to turn adjustment knobs. Unlike leveling using ball head or tripod legs, leveling remains stationary after each adjustment.

All pano heads come with full 5 year Warranty protection against manufacturer defects.
Note: The 16-35mm Nikkor lens is not compatible with both the NN3 and NN4 series pano heads.
The Canon EF 8-15mm is very long for a fisheye and may require use of T-30-III T-adapter which gives a bit of added adjustment length.
