Could you ask your friend to send the debug output, right after the end of the first shooting sequence (after the head starts again, before the end of the Time Value)? About EOSbracket.exe, try to enter EOS Utility.exe, instead (due to the space in name, you may need to escape with \, or to add " " ...

Look at the timings, and you will see that there are some drifts at all levels (hardware and software). So, in fine, I'm not surprised...

Also try to turn off the GUI (switch to the second screen, with only positions as text)...

Thanks for the log. Well, the problems are multiples: the move sequence takes more or less time, saving datas also takes more or less time... So, total time varies a lot. You can try to disable the data writing, but for the move, there is nothing we can do. For timelapse, where precise timing is nee...

Does the head moves between shots? The timer is not real time at all. I mean, there is just a wait() call after each shot, and it can't be very accuratte. But the values you are getting are very strange... There must be something else. Could you turn the debug to 'trace' level, and post the log file...

Nice work! About the pull-up signal, I remember that there is something like that on Merlin/Orion too. During my very early tests, when I was hacking the protocole, I saw that this line was triggered by the controller when it wanted to send something. Fortunally, it is not mandatory at all. If it ha...

Interesting project! Do you have a link? I also plan to scan all my films using such DSLR ;) I think all can be done within the Arduino. There are plenty of examples to drive motors and LCD, read keys, communicate with PC through serial or USB... Unless you really need a complex GUI, I would not use...

I'm not sure Papywizard is the right choice.

First, you will need to write a new plugin to drive your electronic (what controller do you plan to use?).

Second, Papywizard 'speaks' angles, not mm...

There are better softwares to fit your needs.

Do you mean 2 more motors (yaw, pitch, mot1 and mot2)? Or 2 stepper motors, for yaw and pitch?

Mmm, but it will be nearly impossible to rotate yaw axis arround the NPP... And the footprint is very large.

Too bad, as it looks great!

We will have to make reverse enigneering on this module too, to find new commands ;) Hi Frederic, I think will not be necessary. We consider you part of the team. You will have access to the full extended Panogear documentation interface set that we found. Just contact me. I will be back at office ...

NPP d'une GoPro

Hello,

Quelqu'un a-t-il une idée de la position exacte du NPP sur une caméra GoPro (le long de l'axe optique) ?

Est-ce au niveau de la lentille, ou plutôt sur l'arrière du boîtier ?

Merci d'avance.

Nice!

I'm more and more convinced that html5/javascript is a good way to develop many modern applications...

And with the SDK, it will be possible to add new features (like Papywizard xml import/export, drivers for other panoheads...).

GND = ground = OV = common line for signals.

sleeve = ring closest to the cable on a jack connector (see http://www.dynamicperception.com/content/using-remote-inputs-and-outputs)

Ok, I checked that the GND is on the sleeve on both sides (FTDI cable and Merlin Adapter Kit for the MX2). So it should works fine.
