Thanks for your co-operation Klausesser. Merci pour ton aide
Do you have an idea about the price of the RODEON?Connais tu le prix tu RODEON?
I do not guess we need a very high technology about engines for this applcation.Je ne pense pas que nous ayions besoins de moteurs de grande technnologie.
Such as VR Motor heads I only know Spheron (Made in Germany) and Round Shot made in CH. Do you know more?Comme tête motorisées je ne connais que SPHERON et Round shot, en connais tu plus?
Have you seen this topic, do you need a translation. http://www.autopano.net/forum/t3126-super-modular-vr-tracker-projectAs tu vu ce fil. As tu besoin d'une traduction.
Yes - i saw the topic, but my French is too poor to understand. I know the Spheron - worked with it sometimes. ItÂ´s a fine camera - but only for spherical panos, because of a limited resolution. And with about 25000.-â‚¬ a bit expensive . . i rent such gear on demand.
The roundshot isnÂ´t really interesting in my mind - limited in use as a one-row. The Seitz-VR-Head in my eyes is too expensive being a one-row motorized gear - vertical movement is not motorized and thuse not programmable.
Then there is the Pix-Orb - very elaborated and sturdy. And very expensive too, around 6000.-â‚¬ when iÂ´m right.
Al in all the Rodeon seems to be the very best solution when you can spend much money and use it often professionally.
Fot occasional use or for hobby, the Merlin is unbeatable in my mind!
P.S.: one shortcome of the Merlin is itÂ´s large base. You canÂ´t tilt the camera more than 45 degree down without seeing it using a 20mm on a Canon 20D.
On the other hand thatÂ´s only a problem with spherical panos - which you wouldnÂ´t need a motorized head really for. And the base mabe to make bit smaller by doing some metal-work.
