I must say i was pleased about the PanoMachine when i got in contact with Msr. DeLostec two Years ago. The price for the machine was about 650.-â‚¬ - which in my mind was an acceptable price for a just horizontal-driven an programmable head.
I hesitaded to order it anyway - and when i contacted Msr. DeLostec again he told me that the head now has to be ordered in Germany via MK.
I contacted MK and learned that the price was nearly doubled . . .
Well - in my mind THAT price is a bit high for a just horizontal driven device and i wondered how it could be doubled. MK told me they had done a lot of work to get more precision, a stronger gear and so on . .
ItÂ´s not so much less priced than the much smaller sized (Nadir shot) Seitz . . .
Well . . i mean: IF one needs a driven head - then it would have to be programmable and driven in both axes . . would it?
IÂ´m absolutely convinced itÂ´s a very good device! No question about that!
