Hi!

A world first from Germany is the PanoHero, a small panoramic head for the GoPro Hero 3 White - Silver - Black, Hero 3+ Silver & Black, Hero 4 Silver & Black. Create a sphere with 6 images in a minute.
Ingeniously simple made by MK Panorama Systeme.

Thanks, I could not see it in the online shop.

Do you imply that the price should reflect the method of manufacture and that you consider it to be too expensive?

Yep. For 300$ you can buy a 3d printer. 1kg Filamente can be bought for less than 10$... You can See the 3d print is using thick layers.... So yes massive overpriced ...

Do you know of a less expensive alternative?

Hello!

A price is as always relative. It depends on the value of the product.

The PanoHero is produced by a professional 3D print provider.
Not in a simple 3D printing process using a home printer.
This in small quantities!

Delivered in a bundle with a good software, PanoramaStudio 2 Pro (sales price EUR 69,90 incl. 19% German VAT).

This leads to a sale price.

We have delivered the first PanoHeros and get good feedbacks so far.

The PanoHero makes fun and that was our reason for the development.
Created many prototypes and tested, now we are satisfied.

Best regards from Hamburg / Germany

Marc,

I don't understand how the Panohero is used/operated.

Do you take two rows of three shots?

How is the rotation on the vertical axis achieved?

How is the rotation on the horizontal axis achieved?

Hi!

Gladly I´ll answer your 3 questions as follows:

Do you take two rows of three shots?

=> Yes - exactly 2 rows of 3 shots => total 6 shots!

How is the rotation on the vertical axis achieved?

=> Vertical mechanism with 2 positions (upper & lower row).

How is the rotation on the horizontal axis achieved?

=> 3 plug-in positions!

A simple solution for perfect panoramas with your GoPro ;)

Have fun

Hi!

I just discover this thread; very nice design!

I made myself a manual 3D printed panobot for Hero3, a few days ago; I'll post it on the french part of this forum.

Thanks!

BTW, do you know the exact position of the NPP? It looks like your rotations cross behind the lens... Am I right?

Hi!

I am only responsible for the sale.
Martin has done a lot of testing to find the correct NPP.
It works perfectly ...

Have fun
