Re: Freedom360 rig for sale....

Klaus your 100% right about this one. It's almost like a 3D printer for the house. Nice thought, you can build one for about 400 euro (if you are smart and can use a screwdriver and a hacksaw). Buy for the ordinary household? Not interresting really, allthough fun........VR Video in a pro-market, do...

Hans, i've got neither the time nor the inclination to read about photon rain (but you can give the synopsis here if you like and if I like that and it helps me I'll read it) . Nokia talks about oversampling in their press releases and I have no doubt they do so. Well you can have a 41 Mpixel pictur...

Hmzzzz, Nice screaming game lads and lasses :) but taking a DSLR freeclimbing is asking for trouble of the irreverable variety in which gravity really sucks, and the Nokia 808 is on hell of a camera phone....it uses the 41 Mpixels not to play ball with a D800.

In short, Klaus is right.....a car can be done, I've seen some less convincing tries since you have to work incredibily precies to get that done (or put the car on a turntable or use the 3D animated car, IBL lighting and a background to match (most car advertisements these days never see a real car ...

Well, one thing is to remember....a motor in reverse is called a dynamo....now, some motordrivers don't like that at all, the currents and voltages are all over the place and since not all motor drivers are protected (by diodes I guess), this can mean idios muchachos.

Clickstops usually are in the horizontal move. Andrew meant the vertical move (pitch). I know....but the Panosaurus has no klickstops on any of the axis....so that does not intercept my argument.

DOF is a matter of choice and possibility......and I like a shallow DOF sometimes but shooting long lenses comes with a shallow DOF in all cases especially using a FF camera.

Hmzzz, Adrew, that why I bought a Panosaurus, no klickstops.....I've used it with a 80-200 Nikon and an OM-D.....it works....but it's not confortable and it takes a lot of attention, in one word exhausting. That's why I went the motorized Panohead route. And now I'm waiting on the next addition to m...

The only nice zooms are the 80-400 at 2200 euro (and heck then you have the budget to make a great lens) or the 70-200 also a bit esotherically priced and no amateur stuff. If Des wants to be cheap she should not even contemplate a zoom (I wouldn't) not in that range. The problem is supertele's tend...

And if you embed data in a flash you can get them out fast using software like Trillix Flash Decompiler.....so if you thought your sound, images and other stuff are safe in a flash app.....think again.

Well the top of the Rockefeller isn't a football pitch.....so most of the photo's should be more or less alligned. Now in this particular case less is certainly not more.

Couldn't agree more (even professional use is possible). I would love such a lens for shooting Giga's with my OM-D Klaus....I only use the middle section of the lens...and that is tack sharp and nicely contrasted. And manual focus is no problem in such cases since you have to focus manually anyway.....

Young man, you need to create control points between the adjoining photos, and then optimize. An if that does not work first time, do it again, and again and again......made a pano with a motorized mount with shifting light and fog, haze, dust, spray (from anti-dust sprayers used about 200 meters u...

Not yet, since my version of the mount is still in development....needs a 3D printed controler and for that I first have to build a 3D printer (challange!) but you can see the original version on the web....if you do some searching you can even find it on the Kolor forum......
