working on a pan tilt head
#1
I have started working on a new pan tilt head for myself.


Planning on using geared steppers, with GX2 timing belts to hook them up to each axis. I have previously used worm gears, but I have found these to have issues with accuracy.

Control will be accomplished with the miniEngine v2.

Going to be using the head with a 5D mk2 but want to make it flexible for other systems.


Canon T2i (550D) shown in first image and RED cinema camera in the second image. Whole device is pretty compact, have tried to keep everything possible within the frame. Both axes have penetrating holes to allow for cable routing.

Head is coming along well, not had much time to work on it as I am trying to do my thesis at the same time. All of the internal motors and gearing are done.


Seems like it is going to be really solid, hopefully I should be able to do a little more work on it soon.
