NT Head (Pan & Tilt)


The NT head is a 2-axis Pan Tilt head and works with very precise worm gears. The head consists of 2 modular single axes, which can be connected together via the supplied connecting rails. Each single axis offers flexible mounting possibilities via various 1/4″ and 3/8″ threads and milled-in Arca-Swiss profiles. The head is ideal for time-lapse and video recordings, as well as for creating gigapixel panoramas and 360-degree images.
