I recently did a project for my friend Nicole Young to allow her to do some panning during a time-lapse sequence. This video is an overview of my approach to this problem. In the future, I plan to post some detailed, technical articles on my computer related blog, Skylark Software. These articles will be more about the electronics and software than the photography aspect, so I decided to post them there.
There has been some interest expressed by people wanting to know where to get one. If you are interested in me making one for you, e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll put you on a list. If there is sufficient interest, I may possibly produce a batch of them for sale in the neighborhood of $200-$300 each. Anything made for sale will be significantly more polished than this rough cut proof-of-concept version.
Now, go see the results Nicole got on a recent trip to Moab.
Extension methods are cool
