  • Smooth rotation for time lapse (not triggering camera)

    Hi
    Is there a script to move horizontally like for 120 degrees in 60 minutes, or lets say n degrees in n minutes, without triggering camera as I will rely on camera own time-lapse feature?

    First note is that you don't need to have MECHA connected to camera at all to rotate the camera.

    settings

    IMG 0 , MF, W:0, A:0, B:0, E:0 128 uStep

    script

    SL,0x24000
    gives me about 1 deg/minute

    SL,0x14000
    about 2 deg/minute

    You need to try some values to see which one suits better.
    1. Mecha it possible.
    2. Mecha it easy.
    3. Mecha team up.

      Shoot-Move-Shoot is more reliable than Constant Motion. What about using the basic feature, set angle to 0.1 degree, it will gives 1000 stops. rewind and repeat?

        Thanx, how to determin the number for degrees please? 14000 is not half of 24000.
        And how to do it the othe way Nick? I set the numbers as in photo, should I use same script?

          change 90 degree to say 0.1 and then x1200, change wait to rewind and setup repeat etc. check the manual.

            I gave previously some rough estimates

            I ran C1-E1 with 0x24000 for 1 hour and was a bit too fast, reached 60° to soon.
            the computed correct value will be then 0x25714 for 1 deg/minute

            is expected for 2 deg/min to be half of it mean 0x12857 for 2 deg/minute.

            For script you just need to replace the script from other preset with

            SL,0x25714

            which means it will take a row of 25714 positions for 360°, so every one is at 0.014 deg apart from the previous one
            but also set
            IMG 0 , MF, W:0, A:0, B:0, E:0 128 uStep

            IMG 0 will mean no shoots taken, and the rest means no delays to be set.



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