Panogear : noicelevel

by Bjarne Nybo » Thu May 01, 2014 2:28 pm

My new panogear makes quit a lot of noice by pan.
Especially by panning quickly and at the functions where I want to pan vertical by the upper revolving module which makes noise when running.

Do you recommend that I en one or another way use Spray Duster (air with oil)?

If ”yes” is it recommendatory to amount the cover?
On beforehand thank you very much with my best photoregards Bjarne

I have two Merlin (marketed by Kolor as Panogear) mounts

The motors and gears on a Panogear/Merlin mount are quite noisy.

Did you expect them to be silent?

I would not recommend that you attempt to lubricate them in any way.

I expect them to be a lidt bit silent - but not 100 %
Thanks: Bjarne

I definitely agree!! Wouldn´t make sense anyway: the gear is plastic as i remember.

It could be less noisier by running much slower . . . but i guess that´s not what
you would like really . . . :cool:

In the slowest mode you can´t hear it at all - but you also can hardly see it moving at all . . .
takes hours for one 360 turn =D :cool:

You can try to glue damping mats onto the inside of the body´s plastic parts - battery compartment and vertical arm -
but i doubt it would really help much.

Oh, the gear is plastic, so I agree.
Thanks. Now I will go to take some picturers - a lot of.
