      We have a new pano head coming to market this week and thought it only fair
      to also announce this in PanotoolsNG as well.

      Fanotec is proud to announce an entirely new line of products called the
      "ULTIMATE LINE".
      This new line of products is dedicated to the demanding photographers in
      seek of the highest quality products. Using CNC machining these products are
      built to much higher tolerances resulting in much greater precision and
      accuracy. Machined and anodized from premium T6061 aluminum result in much
      enhanced durability and lifetime. The R1 and R10 pano heads will lead the
      pack with newer products on the horizon.

      A single row pano head designed for use with circular and full frame fisheye
      lenses such as the popular Sigma 8mm and Nikkor 10.5mm with more to
      follow. It is the same as the R1 with the exception of the tilting feature.
      Each R10 head has a set of 3 built in static tilt options (0 degree and +/-
      certain degrees). Currently 4 sub-models with +/- 2.5, +/- 5, +/- 7.5 or +/-

      be use on the same lens without adjusting any settings.
      The R10 comes with your choice of one ring clamp. Initially, only ring
      clamps for sigma 8mm (Canon and Nikon Mount) and Nikon 10.5mm are available.
      * Arca Swiss Compatible quick release design.
      * 3 precise tilting options (0, +/- desired deg) for use under different
      applications.
      * Modular design. Change to other tilt options by changing the vertical
      rail.

      Lens Ring Clamp for fisheye lens
      Lens ring clamps for fisheye lens have become popular due to their
      compactness and ease of use. However improper use of lens ring clamp may
      cause stress and hence damage to a lens. After all, these lenses are not
      designed to be used in this manner! Fanotec lens ring clamps are built with
      special attention to the safety of lens.


      Features and Highlights

      * Plastic insert is placed between the outer metal ring and the lens. It
      is contoured to fit the lens and hence increase area of contact.
      * Large clamping area to reduce stress on the lens barrel, reducing the
      risk of damaging the lens.
      * Mounted close to the camera to reduce stress on the lens due to weight
      of camera body
      * Rolling the camera/lens in any position including the popular 0, 60
      and 90 degree positions
      * Index marks for every 90 degrees in the front and every 30 degrees at
      the back for easy alignment of roll of lens.
      * permanently mounted to lens, making reproducible mounting possible,
      and much quicker to setup.
      * Compact and light weight
      * Arca Swiss Compatible quick release design, can be mounted directly to
      other Arca Swiss compatible system without using R1 or R10.
      * great for use on a monopod or high pole
      * Easy to install
      * Optional advanced rail stop to remember NPP setting
      * 30 day money back guarantee
      * 2 year warranty
