It is built tough and designed to last.
Compatible with all devices and operating systems:
Android, iPhone, Windows, Linux, etc.
You simply select your camera type, lens focal length and desired image overlap and all shooting parameters are automatically calculated and optimized.
Without it, you'd have to make manual adjustments every time you changed parameters such as speed, aperture, ISO, etc.
The Pivot is compatible with modern mirrorless and dSLR cameras that have a wired shutter release.
You'll need a cable to connect your camera to the Pivot. These are inexpensive and widely available at local or online retailers. Simply search for:
2.5mm coiled shutter cable for your_camera
For example: 2.5mm coiled shutter cable for Sony a6300
One end of the cable is a 2.5mm jack that connects to the Pivot and the other fits your camera's wired shutter port.
The Pivot uses a web app for wireless configuration and control over a WiFi connection. You do NOT have to install any apps on your smartphone, tablet or other device.
This makes the Pivot universally compatible. All you need is a device with WiFi and a web browser. It works with:
Android, iPhone, Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.
And your configuration parameters are saved on the controller and are accessible next time even if you use a different device.
This is a recommended but optional item.
The Pivot 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 are inexpensive and widely available through local or online retailers.
You'll also need to buy a cable, search for:
2.5mm coiled pc sync flash cable
The Pivot requires a DC power supply with the following specifications:
Current: 3.5A-4A minimum sustained discharge
Connector: 5.5mm x 2.1mm male
Most laptop power adapters meet the above requirements or you can use the optional battery pack.
An optional 21V battery pack & charger can be ordered during checkout.
If you need a battery pack, order it when you buy your Pivot. Due to shipping restrictions we can not ship individual battery packs later.
A sturdy tripod is required with a standard 3/8-16 screw.
Supports tripods with a column diameter up to 5cm. To use it with wider tripods, leveling bases, etc you can purchase an optional 4cm riser.
