CAMERA MOTION & TRACKING

Our MOTION TRACKING UNITS are built around lightweight aluminium  alloy rail and 1.5 to 6 meter lengths are available.  They are suitable for both full weight or DSLR cameras and will work in any orientation - vertical, horizontal or underslung.

TWO TYPES OF DRIVE MOTOR ARE AVAILABLE
1.  Direct DC Drive for smooth real time tracks with

  • with optional joystick for analog control
  • remote radio control of the unit
  • remote operation of the camera utility over a wireless link

2.  Stepper Motor Drive for

  • timelapse
  • controlled movement
  • jerk free start
  • accurate repeatable camera moves

For more complex moves and precisely accurate repeatable tracks, this system can be laptop controllable via dedicated software through a USB link.  Profiles designed on the laptop can be stored in the motor controller and up to 8 or optionally 16 separate profiles can be stored in this way.
Multiple stepper motors can be controlled simultaneously although each would need its own controller.

The computer control offers accurate adjustment of

  • jerk free start characteristics
  • rate of acceleration
  • target speed
  • directional number of repeats
  • graphical representation of the profile
  • selectable units - degrees, millimeters and steps

WE CAN GO UNDERWATER TOO USING A SPECIALLY DESIGNED RADIO CONTROLLED UNIT WHICH CAN TRACK VERTICALLY AND HORIZONTALLY AND ROTATE THROUGH 360 deg
     WE’LL BE SHOWING SOME RESULTS HERE SOON SO KEEP LOOKING

There has been a lot of interest in
our lightweight tracking system.

A large crowd gathered to watch a
demonstration of its extreme
versitility!

Easy removal of the stepper motor drive from the track rail means it can also be used as a stand alone unit for rotary timelapse (pan or tilt)
