I wanted to introduce myself and offer my assistance to this forum.
We've been making changes to the our lineup of panoheads and I wanted to briefly mention them...
Our Precision panohead, the QuickPan Professional
has been very popular. In fact, it's our most popular new panohead ever. This head offers template-level precision at very affordable pricing. You can obtain more information on the QuickPan Pro at the two links below. We now include the optional bubble level as standard equipment and also provide a lifetime warranty. If anything should go wrong, we will fix it free of charge. This is one rock-solid ultra-precise unit (just look at the arms compared to others). No sag, no sway, no nonsense. There are two images (at the very bottom) of the QuickPan Professional.http://www.kaidan.com/Detail.bok?no=160http://www.vrmag.org/vartist/VR_industry/KAIDAN_S_QUICK_PAN_PROFESSIONAL_TUTORIAL.html
The latest product that we've just announced is our KiWi Europa Rotator
(first picture below). This replaces our QuickPan rotator. Improving on the QuickPan rotator the KiWi Europa includes a compass (for orienting shots to true north), improved friction drag, an adjustable Placeholder to easily and quickly locate the camera bracket (also found on the QuickPan Pro), a wide range of ClickDiscs (12 included), a spare index plunger and a lifetime warranty. The KiWi Europa will work with all Kaidan camera brackets. We are shipping the KiWi Europa Rotator now - our web page will be updated shortly.
Kaidan is also proud to offer any member of this forum a 10% discount on any Kaidan product. Just mention Autopano Pro and your username on this forum.
The QuickPan Professional "Autopano" price is $719.95 and includes the bubble level option.
The KiWi Europa Rotator "Autopano" price is $116.95.
