Those of you who are close to me know that I have a love for time-lapse photography. I have been looking for a cost-effective panning and motion control solution.
I happened to stumble across the Astro – a project on Kickstarter where two young men are going about designing a simple intervalometer and motion controller for time-lapse photography.
If you’re interested in time-lapse photography, I recommend that you check this page out.
Astro promises to be most intuitive, compact and simple intervalometer and motion control for time-lapse photography. It will add panning movement to your camera, and it will allow you to set up time-lapse programs by defining the duration, the range of movement; which goes from 0 to 360°, and the interval in degrees or seconds in which you want the photos to be taken. It actually fits in your pocket! It’s so small you can take it anywhere, and it’s still powerful enough to work with professional equipment.
Astro is compatible with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Pentax, Minolta and basically any camera with a remote input. A cable will be included to plug Astro into your camera and allow communication.
I’ve made my pledge and am looking forward to receiving it!
