Post Motorised Panoramic Head
Hi,

Does anyone have experience of using this pano-head for time-lapses.

MK PanoMachine

The website says it is suitable for time-lapses but it doesn't give any speed settings.

Not sure about this product but the gigapan looks like it will be a promising motorized/robotic head. That is extremely price competitive.

http://www.gigapansystems.com/
I took a quick look at the manual which suggested it would take 9 pictures per location might make an interesting panning head...

example of gigapan being used as a time-lapse system
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~globalconn/time_lapse_gigapan.html

Also came across this-
"Q: Is there a Gigapan camera mount for larger/professional grade digital cameras (such as SLRs)?
A:

Currently there is not a Gigapan camera mount for larger/professional grade digital cameras. We may be creating one in the near future, that, in addition to supporting larger cameras will have a time-lapse feature as part of the mount. "
http://www.gigapan.org/faq/?window_height=797&window_width=1261

But this model does work with smaller dSLRs and might effectively work as a motorized head.

Hi All:

The MK PanoMachine´s minimum speed is 10 minutes / 360° but without any stop.
Normally the device rotates to the next position, stops and releases the camera - in custom mode you can set a delay between two shots, so you can make a time-lapse over hours or days...

The max. resolution is 0,1° = 3600 shots in 1 rotation.
Bulit-in intervalometer is good to make 5000 shots.
And you can make e.g. a 360° panoramas all 5 miuntes or each hour...

So it´s well made for time-lapse :!:

Have fun

FYI, the new gigapan head supports timelapse I think it is about $800. I saw one at the maker faire in san francisco a few weeks ago and it looks pretty sweet. very robust.

Hello:

Now it´s possible to use the MK PanoMachine 6.0 together with MK ScanMachine 2.0 = linear scan plus rotation in one workflow.

Have fun

Is anyone using the gigapansystem mount for time lapse? Has something better come along in the past year?

I think new Gigapan EPIC Pro is able to hold fullsize DSLR. Question is, if the controller may work together with linear dolly like Dynamic Perception some way. I think EPIC controller is not designed for timelapse, just for stitching single shots into panorama...
I would like to have 2in1 device or even better 3in1.

1) panoramatic head for single raw or half sferic VR shots automation (I use Novoflex panorama head right now, quite time consuming when you shot from many)
2) timelapse robotic head for step-shot-step operation (like Merlin)
3) video slider for shooting video - with ramp-drive-ramp smooth slides (this is quite tricky with DP Stage Zero) now

Thanks for advice

Tomas
