I'm bumping this, hoping for a reply. I never got even one before. I never figured out the problem, still can't use my Merlin. Is there anyone who can help?
I understand your feelings very well . . These issues confused me one day that much hat i had Josef started to design the TC-handheld for Merlin.
Now i use a TC for about more than two years and it NEVER failed.
The TC works so well that i use it for the Panoneed-head too - in a special version of course. ItÂ´s finally about to roll out btw.
- Josef has packings made already.
He added some very cool goodies like start by radio-control and a feedback from the camera to the controller when the camera finshed an exposure so that the head can move to the next position. Good for bracketed sequences . . using a fixed wait-time it would have to wait for the longest exposure of a burst on at all positions - even though the shortest exposure of the burst takes much less time.
