Hi guys,

I am searching for a motorized pan/tilt head for my DSLR.

I found this one, but maybe you guys know some cheaper heads?

The wireless part is not a must :)

Also preferably in a EU shop.

Thanks in advance !

Greetings
BelgianEvo

Thanks allot !!

I allready contacted them ;) Do you know where they are located in the NL, because i can't find any adress on the website.

Oh and i saw the Merlin 2-axis head on the site. Do you think that is a good choice?

It will need a MX2 controller and adapter to make it word with that controller.
And it will also need an external powerpack.

But i think that i'll have a complete setup for aprox 600euro's.

Or do you have any other (better) suggestion?

No, I don't know if have a bricks and mortar place, but they should be able to tell you. I've asked them a few questions as well and they should certainly be able to help you if you tell them what you;re looking for as precisely as possible.

The Senna is just a wireless controller and a Merlin head. If you don't need the wireless, just get a Merlin from Elysia, and post something in the "marketplace" category of this forum asking for a used MX-2, sooner or later someone will sell you one. You could ask for a used Merlin on here as well. Might save you some euros.

I allready got a reply from them.

Unfortunatly some parts for the merken aren't produced anymore.

So I chose some other hardware and i'm getting a price-offer later this day.

I would go for the StageR with the nee controller.

Don`t buy the Merlin. Spend the extra on the Emotimo TB3. Much superior and much more reliable. I have both so I think I`m in a position to judge.
