Installing R10 Tilt Head and Bubble Level on Rotator Mini


Installing R10 Tilt Head and Bubble Level on Rotator Mini
Place the level on RM with bubble facing up. Place R10 tilt head on the level. Align for the mounting sockets. Install 2 M5 flat head screws to fix R10 head to RM. While the level is still movable, turn it to the rear right of R10 for best clearance of view and least footprint. Keep it at 2-3mm (1/8") clearance from R10 to prevent damage of bubble by accidental bumping of bubble into R10.

First of all, make sure the R10 head has an upward tilt. If not, reinstall it.
Install the lens ring on the lens according to its installation guide at the back. Mount the lens on the camera. Mount lens ring on QR clamp of R10. Tighten the clamp slightly.

Mounting Lens Ring Clamp on the Tilt Head at the NPP
Slide the lens ring plate (LRP) to the NPP setting. There are 3 lines marked on the QR clamp. Use the center line for distance reading. Other lines are 1.5mm apart from the center line. Use them to assist reading to an accuracy of 0.5 mm. Use the side opposite to the QR handle for best accuracy. NPP setting of Sigma 8mm F3.5 for Canon is 0.85. Check that the LRP has "LRP40" labeled at the base.
NPP setting of Sigma 8mm F3.5 for Nikon is 1.4. Check that the LRP has "LRP45X" labeled at the base.


Installing the Preset Integrated Stop Plate on Lens Ring

A preset integrated stop plate snaps to the LRP to form an internal part of it. It has predetermined NPP setting(s) specific for the lens, tilt head model and image shooting pattern. It makes the whole setup foolproof. Just mount the lens ring, slide until it falls into the stop. COMING SOON FREE OF CHARGE FOR GTP!

Installing the Preset Integrated Stop Plate on Lens Ring
