  • Flash with Dual Axis MECHA C1-E1 w/NN3 MK3

    Hello, I am wanting to use flash with my pano. Let's say I want to take 6 shots around. I have my Sony A7r# set to five auto brackets. Now I have to reach to the camera to manually switch the Memory for a single flash shot. Because there is play in the gearbox of the MECHA rig it moves the shot and creates alignment issues. Is there a workaround to lock in the Mecha? Do I need a manual pano rig to do this and if so what rig should I use to get the job done. I am shooting large exteriors for this work. By the way, my automation rig is amazing. Thank you

    regarding MECHA, please look here (Q3)

    Regarding camera, assuming it has wi-fi, you can check the Sony's PlayMemories app if it allows to change the setting without touching camera

    1. Mecha it possible.
    2. Mecha it easy.

      I'll look into that further. As far as I know, aperture shutter and ISO are about it nut I will look again. Thanks for the reply.

        I think it is easier you make a pano without flash and repeat one with flash. PTGUI allows you to stitch without linking the images.
        Alternatively, you stitch them into 2 equirectangular images and align them in ptgui again. Using templates should be quite fast.
        We listen. We try harder.
