Kolor Panogear motorized head
This project, inspired by the community, is under construction since a few years now. It is concretized today with the creation of the first complete and professional solution which allows to achieve automatic shooting sessions of tens, hundreds, thousands pictures simply and easily, in order to create high resolution panoramic pictures up to several gigapixels. Important note: Please check if your camera is compatible in the specification section.
Stable and robust
Thanks to its sharp one-piece design and powerful engine, Panogear is able to support up to 4 kg of load (9.7 lbs). Its threaded base of 3/8" ensures maximum stability in all situations. For most difficult conditions, setting the time period of stabilization will prevent any possible vibration. Your panoramic views will benefit from an incomparable sharpness.
Control Panogear remotely with the help of the Panoshoot module. Practical, the remote control prevents you from disturbing your shootings whenever you want to change a setting. It also offers you new perspectives, such as to make shootings on a telescopic mast.

Install your DSLR on the Panogear, connect them together using the incuded trigger cable and start your shooting within couple of minutes. With the simple and intuitive interface of Panoshoot, you are able to start with a few clicks.
Behind the apparent simplicity of Panogear hides an innovation that ensures the stitching quality of your panoramic images. Accurate to the quarter degree, Panogear can also automatically save the files describing your shots (XML file).
Based on an astronomical mount, the Panogear is precise and allows to shoot gigapixel panoramas thanks to a 0,25 degrees reading precision.
The Panogear is compatible with almost all DSLRs. Please check if your camera is compatible in the specification section. Canon 5D MKIII is not compatible in terms of body size, you won’t be able to set the nodal point.
