Description

Capture stunning 360° panoramic shots from your favorite device with ease. Small and lightweight, simply mount a DSLR, smartphone, or GoPro action camera. Twist to operate, and you're ready to go. No batteries required. Why it's great: It's a portable turntable that provides an ideal solution for creating time lapse videos or panoramic stills with GoPro/action camera, smartphones and cameras up to 4.4 lbs (2kg). It includes a smartphone holder and GoPro head mount. The top features a 1/4"-20 camera screw and a 3/8” to 1/4"-20 socket at the bottom for a tripod attachment - although and it can also be used directly on a tabletop or other level surface. Based on a simple, non-electric timer mechanism, the MTP2000 is capable of panning 360° counterclockwise in 120 minutes. For clockwise panning, hang the MTP2000 upside down - although this is only recommended for GoPro/action camera, smartphones or cameras weighing less than 1 lb. The minimal interface allows the tripod head to be set and used quickly, as well as allowing for a second tripod head to be mounted on top to double the speed of the cycle - a complete revolution in 60 minutes.

abunda_amazon_reviews This works great with a GoPro or point and shoots (first shot is GoPro Hero2). Won't work well with any camera over 2 lbs (1 kg). Although the description says the max camera load is 4.4 lb, its far from it. The construction is flimsy and the spring is weak. As you can see in the last shot of My. Fuji, if you put even a crop-sensor DSLR with a medium lens you'll get uneven movement. With a larger lens on my Nikon D7000, weighing in at 2.8 lbs, the rotation would occasionally stop all together. I fixed that by lightly tilting the tripod head, making the direction of the rotation slope downward and then correcting the video angle in post. If you don't have an alternate solution to creating panoramic timelapses, this is a huge bang for the buck, as it will dramatically enhance your production value. At $20 it's a good toy to practice with before you step up to professional tools.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 28, 2017;;3.0 out of 5 stars;;Good bang for the buck for GoPro and Point and Shoot users.

After 30 minutes, the camera is pointing down the beach to the left with no sunset in the shot. Using the 120 version, the camera only travels 90 degrees in 30 minutes. You can start with the sunset in the far left side, shoot 30 minutes, and it ends in the far right side so you get the entire sunset in frame. And since I'm in the northern hemisphere, the sun rays point to the south or towards the left. Your last few seconds has the sun in the right side of the frame with the rays pointing towards the left and middle of your screen. In other scenes you have the advantage of doubling the speed so you can end up with a 360 in the same time as the 60min version. But you cant do anything in post if your subject goes in and out of frame too fast.

If you want those features, you can purchase a more advanced product . Though I have not yet run this product for the full 120 minutes, test uses for 45-60 minutes have given me some smooth, consistent shots to use.
