Well, I have discovered a major problem with shooting gigapans with the handset control on this mount. It seems that when the field of view is too small, and the range of the photo is too large (which is the situation when shooting gigapans), the handset looses it's marbles and begins functioning er...

well you just need to adjust the Nodal point, as you have a few close errors. It would be interesting if you can it to shoot multiple exposures per position (HDR) thanks for sharing and keep us posted, please Henrik Not a problem. I am going to test the HDR functionality out tomorrow. I'll use the ...

By the way, here is the link to my first Gigapan attempt with this head. The location is nothing special, but gave me a good place to setup the rig to be undisturbed. I had 2 major issues that I felt ruined the panorama 1. The L Bracket that is included with the mount does not allow my camera to mov...

I would like to do something like that, so there aren't any cords to worry about getting tangled up in. For the time being though, I'm just going to pick up a simple 12v power pack like the Celestron Power Tank, it seems pretty nifty and would be able to power the head all night, and possibly my cam...

The battery compartment is inside the head, it holds x10 AA batteries. At this point, power is my main concern with the head, as I don't believe 10 AA batteries will be capable of powering the head for a full length gigapan. I will most likely be getting and external juice-pack to power the head on ...

Will Do.:) One thing I should update is the material, I thought at first it was all plastic but there is actually quite a bit of metal on it. I'm not sure what type, but it feels like it might be either pot metal or aluminum, though I'm no expert. Also, for anyone that is wondering, the tripod IS RE...

Ok Guys, I just received my All-View today and have begun fiddling. My first impression is that it is a big mount, but feels very sturdy with my 60D, battery grip, and Tamron 18-270 lens. It is made out of a hard plastic that feels very durable. The head moves smoothly and balances the camera nicely...

Thank you for your input! I have placed the order for the All-View and expect delivery sometime next week. As soon I have it I will begin posting close-up photos and video overviewing the features that are apparent to me. I will then begin delving into setting it up to use papywizard and reviewing i...

Oops, should have done a little more reseach, the panogear setup comes with an L bracket. Tick that one off!

Hi Everyone, I'm brand new to the site and to robotic panoramic photography. I've been trying to decide which mount I should use, and have decided on the new Celestron AllView for a couple reasons. 1. It includes the L bracket needed for portrait and landscape panoramas. 2. It supports more weight t...
