Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 and R10 Settings for Google Photographers

It’s tough to find the right settings for the Nodal Ninja R1 and R10 heads for Google Trusted Photographers. To help them out, here’s a big search-engine friendly post with the Nodal Ninja info. Panoramic rotator heads for virtual tours require some specific settings, so if you’re not using a Nodal Ninja R1 or R10 head at 7.5 degree tilt and a Sigma 8mm 3.5, then this info might not apply to you. I will update it as more equipment is reviewed.
