My name is Michael and im from Belgium
(aka the land of waffles,chocolates and beer)
Im new to this forum (and the moving time lapse scene).
In the past i have made several time lapse videos, but never
with a rig or slider.
Although there's nothing wrong with static
shots, i think you all agree that movement makes
a big impact on the final outcome of the shot.
As many off you i started searching for a reasonable priced
solution and a future proof design. The Arduino seemed to be
a perfect candidate. Because my programming skills are not
adequate for making a truly original design i found openmoco
to be a perfect lifesafer.
Ive read all the articles and forum posts on here, and i get the
big picture. Yet i would like to ask you guys for some help making the right choices.
So far i own a Arduino Duemilanove
and ive orderd a DollyShield from dynamicperception.
2 big questions remain,
- what are my options for choosing a dc motor
that is compatible with the dollyshield?
- were could i find one(Europe,Belgium?)
- Can the Dollyshield provide pan and tilt movement (head) ontop of
the movement from the slider?
I really appreciate the help!
Looking forward to meeting you all on the forums
