Nice ! is the 3500mAh enough ? I don't rightly know, depends on the power drain from the Merlin and the Bluetooth etc, maybe someone can enlighten us? Maybe Paul can comment as he's using 3200Mah batts. But it sure is a lot more than most batts and I think it about the maximum that you can get out ...

I have found some hardwood at the DIY shop, same size as the Merlin rail :-) A cabinetmaker around the corner did the edges and made one part 3mm less thick. Now I can make several arms and drill holes where I want. Total costs Eu 15,- :-) With the less thick part the 5D is in NP too. (with the ori...

Well the large knob removal process was easy enough, what I did in the end was attach and secure the bolt to the camera, lock the swivel lock thing and tried to remove the screw without heat, the screw came out without too much trouble. the knob was now screwless!!! I applied heat to the metal middl...

"STOP ANY NEW ORDERS TO TRONISOFT" I hope that this is not a permanent situation!!!!

I have successfully received my BT and RS232 to TTL in Mid December 08, both are fully functioning.

Gordon, The 55-200mm seems to have the same diameter barrel as the 18-55mm kit zoom so with D40 should fit fine at NPP on the Merlin. Ther is a detailed description elsewhere on the forum about how to remove the large knob - I guess you've found that? If you find you need a longer rail - these are ...

mediavets, Thanks for the advice. I'm going to set up the D40 1st, the lens I have decided to use is the ED 55-200mm. NNP is not an issue at the moment as most of the internal GigaPixel images I take I use the the GigaPan for those. I will certainly attempt to invoke the merlin unit also for interna...

The components for the Tronisoft Bluetooth to Serial Adapter took about 6 days to arrive and the cable another week so maybe 2.5 weeks in all, this was over the xmas period, the Merlin unit took about 3 days to arrive from ebay and included free postage from this seller http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Acuter-...

Merlin head, now configured with Tronisoft Bluetooth to Serial Adapter

My recently purchased Merlin head is now up and working with the Tronisoft Bluetooth to Serial Adapter, it appears to be doing what it's supposed to be doing... setting up the Bluetooth adapter was easy and the only difficulty I encountered was getting the cable tie tight enough enough on the board!...

Gordon,

How long did it take for you to get your kit from Tronisoft from date of ordering to delivery?

About 5 days including the weekend if I recall correctly.

I have an Itouch here and that works fine with the PangeaVR player, it does not seem to like the GigaPan.org site due to flash not being properly implemented to work with it!!! I haven't tried it with other sites yet.

klausesser, you make me want to take out some vinyl and ditch the ipod :) Do I hear Audiophile, whispering in the background ;)

Does Photomatrix do batch processing of all 35 x3 images and tonemaping, or do you have to import each x3 set of images and tonemap individually?
