Hi... I admire your efforts I really do... But your metal needs to be much more ridged.. Its far too bouncy at the moment..

Since GigaPan have gone bust, you might have a market if you do it right..

It is not my project Destiny (I already own a Gigapan). I just posted it for interest´s sake. A man called Yani Dubin is the inventor, I believe. He certainly could fill a market need if he ever mass produces this, but at the moment he seems just to be experimenting: http://parallellagram.org/cat/Robotic%20Camera%20Platform and at this stage it appears some deep knowledge of Linux programming is required: http://parallellagram.org/controlling-a-camera-in-linux-part-2
