A device like the Merlin should be very good to shoot a time-lapse-sequence with a panning camera.
I tried to do that yesterday - but didnÂ´t succeed to find the correct settings.
LetÂ´s say a 180deg-turn shooting 1 picture per second - the pan should last 5 minutes. That would mean 300 pictures which is 12 seconds of video.
In the software thatÂ´s coupled to a certain focal-length. Is there a way to avoid that?
Ok - one could use the very slow motion-option of the MerlinÂ´s hand-controller and using an interval-release. But i guess the Merlin/Papywizard basically should already be able to do by using the normal speed and stopping 300 times for a shot - am i wrong? But it has to be independant from the focal-length.
the function:"amount of shots" doesnÂ´t do - it increases the angle and is limited to "100". What is it anyway for?

With a hi-res pano involving a lot of images you may find that you can significantly reduce the no. of shots and the elapsed time of the shoot by dropping a row without a huge effect on the Total FOV.
