Here's another idea: what if, in a similar setup as my posted video, I will put the 360 rotation on the camera axis (in this case, rotation on horizontal axis) - with the camera mounted in portrait mode - in other words, the lens is rotating facing nadir, then horizontal, then zenith, then horiz. th...

The nadir footprint for this as is would be very small... Well - one row panos don´t have a Nadir . . . :cool: will you be putting both the x and y motors on it.... You know.. If you can get it to program using the Merlin Touch Controller, then you will be onto something very usable.. You can´t p...

I seem to be stuck to not lower than 1/1600th to get sharp images that can be used for stitching.... Right - and that´s rarely practicable if you don´t want to use wide open apertures and/or very high ISOs. best, Klaus Mmm, so I guess I have to do some more tests. I think the scenarios where a re...

Hi all, A little update on the DIY motorized pano head project with servos mentioned on second page (seems already ages ago in this thread). So far I set up the servo for panning, I went for a digital servo (5645MG) which provide enough torque to move a dSLR with fisheye very easily, modified for 36...

Hi all, not trying to be the smarter guy here, but really, how hard can it be for simple needs (spherical panoramas) to just put two continuos 360 servos/step motors on a Ninja mount and have the camera taking pictures at fast intervals... You just activate the horizontal servo and start the interv...

;) Coming from the RC Helicopters world, we are quite used to work with servos and mounts, and if we can get a spherical pano up there in the air I thought it shouldn't be too hard to figure out a way to adapt to a much better and solid ground. ;) Have a look at this example: http://vimeo.com/305187...
