Amazing robotic head! I'm still experimenting with the best way to transport it, mount my Really Right Stuff rails and clamps to it, and documenting the no parallax points of all my lenses on it. But here are a few photos and a video of it in action!
I'm using it on a Really Right Stuff TVC-34L tripod with a TA-3-LC-HK leveling base/clamp. It's a dream to level in very tiny degrees with one hand near the top of the Panoneed, another on the twist knob below the tripod, and keeping an eye on the electronic level of the controller--even when it's well overhead. I'm short enough to actually walk under the tripod when it's fully extended (68.25" or 173.4cm). There is very little vibration even with a 400mm lens on this tripod. I'm using it with a Promote Control. The rubber bands hold the Promote Control and also a little plastic shroud that I use over the power button when I transport it. I directly mounted a RRS MPR-192 rail to the motor shaft because the screws are placed 20mm apart but my RRS clamps are 30mm. I need to get a little adapter machined.
Here's a short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfritLXHjFo&feature=youtu.be
Congratulations - and welcome to the club!
I think itÂ´s a great device and a great combination with the PromoteControl! And also with MagicLantern btw.!
I like the straight-ahead design of both: the head and the controller - no gimmicks, just very, very clever features
like the sensor to avoid vibrations, the second-curtain synch., the electronic bubble (i like it though i donÂ´t use it
the swift and intuitive handlig of the controller and the overall-reliability and strongness.
best, and - have fun, Klaus
P.S.: nice idea to mount the rail straight to the motor-shaft! Simple and effective = clever!
