Panogear - General description
MOTORIZED PANORAMIC HEAD
The Motorized Panoramic Head has the necessary motorization to put the camera in motion and control picture taking.
A 3/8" threaded base is included on the head that can easily be attached to the grand majority of commercial tripods.
The base's top compartment holds the batteries.
The motorized head can be powered in three different ways: eight AA batteries, two LSM-160 batteries, or with an external 12V power supply.
On the medial section of the base, you will find (in order):
- An RJ-11 jack labeled “HC”: which connects the original controller.
- An RJ-11 jack labeled “AUX”: which connects the Bluetooth transmitter/ receiver and the touch control panel.
- The “on/off” switch: for the head and the connected periphery materials.
On the external top compartment of the motorized head, you will find (in order):
- A jack labeled “Snap”: which connects the camera's trigger cable.
- A jack labeled “IN”: which connects a 12V DC power supply for the head.
- A jack labeled “OUT”: which connects a 12V DC power supply to an external device connected to the head.
A straight bracket or an L-bracket can be connected to the fastening crown to attach the camera.
STRAIGHT BRACKET AND L-BRACKET
Robust and easy-to-use, the straight bracket can be used directly on the attachment zone or can be connected to the provided.
Equipped with a millimeter ruler to aid with attachment and placement.
The L-Bracket included in your pack is essential when using a long focal length.
The L-Bracket permits you to use your camera in landscape mode on the motorized head.
In your pack you will find a set of necessary ion battery components to supply power to the head.
These ion batteries can be used in place of those previously mentioned allowing you to have greater autonomy.
The power kit includes two 7.4V batteries, a battery connector, and two universal chargers.
