The foot plate adds an anchor to the Fanotec Rotator D4/5 and the new Pole Rotators when they are attached to the base of pole. It can also be installed on Fanotec’s RD8/12/16 by means of an adapter which serves as a bumper to protect the rotators.Photographers will no longer need to guess the angle of rotation for each shot. Precise rotation intervals are possible by using a click-stop rotator. This will help expedite the pano taking process. The spikes are removable and can be stored on the plate when not in use. The base of the foot plate has rubber pads. This allows the foot plate to be used on smooth surfaces or places where spikes are prohibited. Photographers can simply step on the foot plate to prevent it from moving.
