A new area of photography is the use of dedicated mounts to automate the
collection of digital images to create extremely high resolution images that can
be zoomed similar to applications like google-earth. Our products can be
used to increase the number of cameras these mounts support or remove the need
for unreliable mechanical-servo shutter releases.
has an output to drive a standard servo motor. By using our products you can
remove the need for the servo motor and control the camera directly. You can
also load a
larger camera in the mount (that wouldn't normally fit with the servo assembly).
Our RC control of a digital camera
page contains a table of all cameras that our products support that could be
used to replace the servo motor.
comes with a 2.5mm jack output which drives cameras with a similar 2.5mm jack
socket as remote trigger release. This limits the number of cameras that can be
used with this mount.
product extends the cameras that can be controlled to those with a IR input (see
the full list on the gentLED-TRIGGER
The gentLED-TRIGGER comes with a built-in battery and a 2.5mm jack. The lead that comes with the
Merlin/Orion plugs straight into gentLED-TRIGGER
for a solution with no other parts required.
has a relay contact available on the rotating part of the head which can be used
A simple custom lead needs to be made to fit the gentLED-TRIGGER
and that increases the number of cameras that can be controlled by adding those
with IR as well as the cable-release models already supported.
Roundshot also has a trigger output and 5volt power supply available on the
non-rotating part of the head. This would open up the control options further
however the danger of cable tangling as the head rotates makes this a less
attractive option. If you are interested in using this option please contact us.
