Selling never used PanoGear - in Australia - optional with Nokia N810

6 months ago I bought a PanoGear set, but as it did not fit my very specific usage I never used the PanoGear. It is in NEW condition complete as received from France. Autopano was so kind and offered a full refund but return postage was to expensive. ( Talking about the sensational Autopano support ...

Panorama 12 years later

It started on film in 1999 , photographed with a Pentax 6x7 and a 35mm fisheye lens. When I took this photo I wanted to capture a 360 panorama out of the main mast of the ship Batavia , moored in Sydney at the Australian National Maritime Museum. But the converging lines made the then intended manua...

I 'm sure now that you are right about that MAC BT , tried it with another newer Powerbook Pro which was even worse, just 8 meters and it failed. Good to know that 30 - 40 meters Bluetooth communication with the NOKIA N810 is achievable. Coming days I will test it , Monday in that Botanical garden. ...

Hi Andrew, IT WORKS !!! What a relief. I could go to a distance of about 12-14 meters , any further and would have fallen down in a deep gully ;-) But I would love to go further away up to 30 meters, will try that in the other section of our garden later. Interestingly that my Macbook Pro stopped co...

Hi Andrew,
Tried that and it says
Code: Select all
~sh: cd.config/papywizard2:  not found

Also tried via sudo gainroot , same message.
Can I open a main directory via cd to see the file name perhaps ?

Hi Andrew, did a search on Maemo.org and found that it is possible that even after a re-flash some bits and pieces of file remain stored. An other user had a similar ghost issue with a web browser. That could explain why I am not able to change the mMerlin settings and perhaps an error is redundantl...

Hi Andrew
That is the strange thing , I did not get that question again , waited and waited....
I could enter it initially at first setup. And did so.
Can I trigger that request ?

I'm now at work in town and could not bring the Merlin with me , so have to try that tonight.

Hi Andrew, I did that before but perhaps not after all the resets etc. Because I could read the BT address for the Merlin had remained unchanged. Which looking back was quite weird given the total reset and even reinstall etc. Anyway followed your instructions to the letter , first of all I had no c...

Hi Andrew. Yes I downloaded from that link you show me here as well. And I indeed enabled Bluetooth after every reflash and clean machine. In the output log I can read an error message but perhaps that is something Frederique has to look into ? It must be in the Nokia I suppose , soft or hardware. T...

Hi Andrew & Claude , Just an update about some action I took to solve it (not) : I did a full reset of the N810 via the control panel, then a full clean of the N810. Then deleted Papywizard. Again a full clean. Then reinstalled Papywizard. Then activated only the Merlin in BT. Then started PW. Again...

Hi Andrew , no question ever can be silly ;-) Yes the radio is on I actually statred to doubt it , but yes it is :-) I can connect perfectly with my Mac so transmit files and with my old Nokia phone to connect to the net. I disabled both of those and left the Merlin BT enabled.... just to be sure. T...

Hi both of you . II use the BT dongle that came with the Merlin as provided by KOLOR but I do not think it is the BT causing a problem as I did a little test: I disabled the Merlin BT connection in the Nokia and in PW it did not show up in the configuration anymore as it did before. Then I enabled t...

Then re-flashed the operating system with latest software. Then cleared all user data again , just to be sure. all of a sudden i had 135 Mb plus...

Papywizard on Nokia N810 does not open.

Hi , I finally got a Nokia N810 , after some study re-flashed the operating system with the latest version. (No other third party installations on the tablet as I use it for PW only. ) Then went for the install of Papywizard. Followed the instructions in the Kolor manual. Part of which is this : $ s...

Dear friends , I did not want to upset any of you German geniuses, my apologises if I gave that impression. It is a , if I may say so , just clinical observation that for some reason German engineering excels that of many others and if economics are no hindrance as in your case it is just proof abou...

Is there anyone already attempting to translate ( is that the right expression ? ) Papywizard to the iPhone platform. Or is that completely impossible ? I think...

What Oliver did is nothing short of amazing. The intricate quality of his work shows off! But also highlights the problem many gifted ( German ? ;-) engineers have : 'over engineering' to a point where it becomes just to expensive. Think of the beautiful Rolleiflex cameras , the best of their times ...

It looks quite straightforward. My setup will be different most likely with better quality motors. Would be handy to start with some available gear and build from there.
I keep the forum posted about progress. Maybe we can start a panogear DIY club ;-)

Looks like the best choice, now off to modify that Merlin to a more camera friendly setup. Since you are so involved , do you , by any chance , know if the motor controller board in it and the motors are available as a .... spare part or so ? I can strip all the electronics and motors out of the Mer...
