Post Looking for a lightweight head for Pans and Tilts
Friends,

Will you kindly safe a little time by pointing me the right direction? I am researching possibilities to get a lightweight head for photographing timelapses with a smooth pan and tilt feature without the need to carry a laptop, if there is any such product.

I am asking because I will be going to high altitude.

Thank you for your input.

Thank you. Do you have a personal experience with the head? If yes, please describe in detail its functionality, especially in terms of pan and tilt ability for time-lapse sequences spanning over a period of 7-8 hours with smooth start and end.

If you know about somebody who would be interested in helping with the assembly of custom made head for a digital film project let me know.

Made a slider for a friend who had bought a Merlin . It is quite well made but think you will need a Dynamic perceptions MX2 to control it . It Can do pan and tilts straight out of the box but you don't have much control . Their are threads on this forum with more information spend some time and have a look . You will be lucky to get somebody to make a head for take it takes quite a while believe me and if you were to pay somebody it would cost much more than a Merlin and MX2. Have a go your self and then you get the spec you want. Theirs plenty of information on this forum
