Re: Doing it wrong!
- If you do get your auto head sorted please let me know
I am interested in buying a robotic head, so that I can just put the
set up in a vehicle or boat cabin and set it running with an auto
shutter so that once set up i can just shut the door and leave it a
short while and then download it
My idea is that the ideal set up for me would be one that can either
be magnetised to the roof of the car or sprung loaded monopod (like
the old style shower curtains) that would wedge between the floor and
the vehicle roof hence saving editing out a tripod
At the moment I cannot find a small robotic head that I think would
do the work, I would be interested in helping the development of the
machining if anyone can sort out the electronics
Or does anyone know where I can buy one ?
