  • 24 MM preset

    Hi
    I use N,-46.6x10,0x10,46.6x10,Z and things are ok, but sometimes Mecha zigzags while completing the panorama, I have to stop and start again, and sometimes I have to reboot it to have it work properly.
    I have tested it with the zigzag, it produce a good panorama, adding a 33rd photo, but I don't know if this is the case all the time.
    I would like to have a preset that will remove confusion or at least a fine tune to the mentioned script please.

    I usually shoot in brackets, using IMG 1, and E 1 sec to let the camera take the 3 shots, with 1 sec before every bracket to help camera settle after each move.

    My camera is Nikon Z5, with a 24-50 lens used as 24 mm

        Sure, is need to use SL, SP, or SR according with the starting and ending position of DAC

        SL, is if start and end is Level
        SP, is if start and end is Parked
        SR, is if start and end is Raised

          I usually manually set starting to leveled using the arrow buttons, so I thought I dont need the SL, the zigzag issue happend after the last update (I skipped some updates so can't tell which caused it) .
          will add SL and check.

          thanx

              To execute a panorama from level position, two conditions have to be meet

              1) the DAC position should be level when execute the script
              2) the script should start with SL

              if you start from parked, you need specify SP instead

              the SL, SP, and SR are used to tell to DAC in which position it is,
              because MECHA doesn't know in which position is after mounting or powering up.

              2. Mecha it easy.
              3. Mecha team up.

                I rebooted and it worked, but is there a way to avoid this, as according to Murphy's law, it happens when you least expect it :(

                  Sorry, I don't understand what's wrong.
                  1. Mecha it possible.
                  2. Mecha it easy.
                  3. Mecha team up.

                    Let's solve this issue.

                    Please answer to my questions, in no time will be no issue at all :)

                    What is position of the DAC just after you place MECHA on filed for pano?

                    1) Leveled
                    2) Parked
                    or
                    3) Raised

                    we can also use mecha(at)nodalnija.com to sort this out,
                    then I'll post here the complete solution for other may be reading along.
                    1. Mecha it possible.
                    2. Mecha it easy.
                    3. Mecha team up.
