Working with clickPanPro I’m able to get the rig moving as fast as I can whilst alowing time for it to settle between pan shifts. I’m getting a mix of nadir and horizon cover with tilt steps in between. I removed a ‘more tilt’ device and found I got precise 0-90 travel on the tilt servo:
This is an example of the full sweep from horizon to nadir and back agian. Unfortunately I’m still gettingAF fails on the Eos M when its swung towards the bright sky so there are pan passes which are mighty dull:
working this way the nadir shots can be a nice surprise when they align well with ground features: the classic KAP ‘texture and pattern’ shots:
When the camera behaves I can use the horizon cover for panoramic montages :
This is from 3 frames taken at 60mAGL with the 22mm pancake lens on the EosM. The overlap is about 40%. I have expanded the height to deepen the perspective.
