For I while I considered this a nice combination which would allow me to to a round of shots automaticly plus allowing me to do the nadir. But then I realised that an investments of over a 1000 euro was not gonna bring me that much benifit compared to shooting manually.
What I wonder is how you justified for yourself investing 4000 ad for this device, i mean you could have bought a very nice camera plus lenses. Does this machine save you so much time, energy? Are you planning to make gigapans?
HansKeesom wrote:Hi Klaus,
I have no problem investing lots of euro's but of each investment it has to be clear what it is gonna bring. Spending thousands of euros to automate something that isnt much work manually (indoor panorama).... I don't get it , but feel free to explain. And with explain i mean something else then calling people amateur or professional :-)

And i guess you - and your wife and daddy - donÂ´t feel a need to laugh publicly about other peopleÂ´s products without knowing it in detail . . right? :cool:

I forgot to tell you were bought that option too.. Just in case we put it in a position where we need it... It works well.. from one end of the house to the other...

Now with this list in mind, in which direction do I look for such a device? and is there alternatives to this?
Again: you really take advantages from a programmable head only for doing hires. For doing spheres using a fisheye iÂ´d take a manual head.

And it is MUCH cheaper. EOR (end of rant).
Update, forgot to say the if you are looking for a 2-camera setup then it would probably look something like this - http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p616/AAGruntpuddock/WoodyStereom.jpg
