Precise Camera Panning
With Stepper Motors
The original design used a camera that could be triggered to take a photo electronically. Although this works well it limits the number of cameras that can be used. The shutter trigger mechanism has been redesigned to allow use with nearly any camera. The shutter button can be automatically pushed by a tiny electromechanical device called a servo.
