The Atome was designed with SIMPLICITY and USABILTY as main priorities.
As with our Absolute range the Atome rotator is practically zero set-up.

  1. Built-in precision click-stops, shoot faster, more accurate
    means fewer stitching issues, fewer rejected panoramas.
  2. Stainless steel detent base, extremely strong and built to last.
  3. Precision lens rings are designed to allow 100% lens functionality.
  4. Full sealed bearings mean super smooth rotation.
  5. Custom quick release designed for speed and ease of use.

A thin yet extremely strong aluminium lens ring retains full lens functionality. Our lens rings do not block focus distance scales or any other crucial lens data.

Designed to stay permanently attached yet small enough to get out of the way.


Not only is our custom quick release clasp incredibly fast and easy to use but it's smart design brings the benefits of a wider lens ring in a much thinner lens ring.

The quick release clasp not only releases the lens ring from the holder but acts to strengthen the ring set-up by spreading the load across the lens ring holder. This design makes it impossible for the lens ring to fail.

This smart design allows the Atome to be used with even the heaviest DSLRs including the Nikon D4 and Canon 1Dx. You can see the 360Precision Atome in action on Harniman's Blog

  1. Sigma 8mm f3.5
  2. Canon 8-15mm
  3. Sigma 4.5mm
  4. Sigma 10mm
  5. Nikkor 10.5mm

  7. Samyang 7.5mm

Setting up your Atome rotator takes just a few seconds. Slide on the lens ring, set the position, tighten and you're ready to start shooting.

Once your lens ring is in position you're now ready to use your Atome. Slide the lens ring into the Atome Y, slide over the quick release lock and let the precision indexing position do its job.
