MECHA Automated 360° Panoramic Tripod Head | Less than 2 MINUTES Box to Shoot
antilimited Been shooting many thousands of 360°s with your kit for well over a decade now. And over those years I've lost track of the amount of folk who ask - when I explain I shoot 360°s with a camera and fisheye lens - if the camera moves on its own. Mecha will FINALLY allow me to answer "well yes, it does!" :-D Thanks and keep up the great work!
mb Sounds like such a cool device! Although I love the NN3 setup I use now, the Mecha, once I dial in a couple of the presets, will make setup & shooting so much smoother, faster. I might take a few more panos that I would have bypassed before just because I was too lazy to go through the setup. Have I mentioned, SO cool?! - mb
