Compact, single-axis robotic head suitable for:
- Single-row panoramas
- 3D/Stereo panorama & image capture
- Remote camera positioning and control
Suitable for nirrorless and up to medium-sized dSLR cameras.
It is built tough and designed to last.
With over 20 customizable parameters, you can configure shooting profiles exactly the way you want them.
Without it, you'd have to make manual adjustments every time you changed parameters such as speed, aperture, ISO, etc.
The Panocatcher robotic panorama heads are compatible with most modern mirrorless and dSLR cameras that have a wired shutter release.
If in doubt, please contact us before ordering to make sure your camera is supported.
The Mignon can receive feedback from your camera through the camera’s flash pc-sync port and automatically adjust several parameters.
If your camera does not have a flash PC sync port, you’ll have to add one through a hot shoe adapter. They cost between $5 and $20 and are widely available through local or online retailers like Amazon or Ebay.
One such inexpensive adapter that has worked well for users with cameras from various manufacturers is the Viltrox FC-5P. However, depending on your camera, you may need to buy one specifically made for it.
You do not need to buy a cable, one will be provided with your robotic head.
A sturdy tripod is required with a standard 3/8-16 or 1/4-20 screw.
The PanoCatcher control app requires a smartphone or tablet that runs Android 4.4 or newer with a Bluetooth connection.
