There’s a new motorized pan and tilt head being touted on Kickstarter which promises versatile performance for capturing panoramas, motion control, time-lapse, 360 production photography, and videography.
The next generation CapsulePro Pan and Tilt Head will offer plug-and-play installation and multi-axis motion control features to make it easy to set up and get motion shots in both single-axis and multi-axis modes.
The MIOPS CapsulePro looks like it’s the next-generation version of the MIOPS Capsule360. The CapsulePro with hundreds of different camera platforms, including all the major models from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, and many others.
The CapsulePro is good for capturing single-axis motion shots like time lapses and panoramas, and with the optional turntable, can work as a handy platform for 360 product shots when the camera is locked down on a separate tripod.
Then there’s the multi-axis L Bracket module which works in concert with the CapsulePro to provide additional pan and tilt features.
Toss in the optional MIOPS Slider, and the MIOPS FLEX time-lapse control module and the result is a multi-axis system that provides complete motion control for a variety of applications.
Through the use of iOS and Android mobile apps, shooters can configure and control the CapsulePro PT Head with a few clicks.
The apps sync all three of the modules, when incorporated, to provide pan, tilt, and slide for precision motion videography and motion time-lapse features.
To date, the MIOPS Capsule Pro has gone through design, prototyping, app development, and testing phases. Now knee-deep in the crowdfunding phase on Kickstarter, the CapsulePro has already surpassed its fundraising goal with room to spare, albeit assuring that mass production will begin on schedule in October of 2022, with a planned delivery of components beginning in December.
Users can back the MIOPS Capsule Pro at an early bird price of $299, which provides the Capsule Pro and camera connection cable. The Pan+Tilt Pack for $699, brings along a second Capsule Pro module, camera connection cable, and the Pan Tilt L bracket.
The turntable looks very similar to the Capsule360 Turntable, which has a retail price of $69 and comes in either black or white colors. The MIOPS Slider+ is available via special order for $399.
There’s also no word if the Capsule360 and L Bracket for Capsule360 will sync up with the new devices, but based on its ability to link up to the Slider+ and Flex, it would seem to make sense that they speak the same language.
