Cap­ture per­fect panora­mas with this pro­gram­mable mo­torised head

NPhoto - - Test Team -

This in­no­va­tive head is de­signed to shoot panora­mas by au­to­mat­i­cally ro­tat­ing the cam­era and fir­ing the shut­ter at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals. It works by sim­ply fit­ting in be­tween the base of your cam­era and your tri­pod head. This makes it easy to level, an im­por­tant fac­tor when cap­tur­ing suc­cess­ful panoramic images. The Ra­dian can be pro­grammed di­rectly from an iOS or An­droid de­vice, but rather than us­ing Wi-Fi to con­nect, it uses a cable that slots di­rectly into the side of the Ra­dian and into the audio port of your mo­bile de­vice. The app is in­cred­i­bly easy to use and nav­i­gate, with three set­tings that en­able you to change the an­gle of ro­ta­tion, the time of cap­ture and the fre­quency of the shots. Once you’ve made your selections the pro­gram is then up­loaded and stored so the cable can be re­moved. As mo­torised heads go the Ra­dian is very cheap, and easy and fun to use. There’s also an op­tional L-bracket that en­ables you to shoot in por­trait ori­en­ta­tion for cap­tur­ing even larger vis­tas.
