after one and a half years starting from practically zero in programming·
my project done.
panorama head that mounts on a conventional tripod to take series of images by turning and tilting a digital camera.
These images can then be stitched to a full 360x180 degrees panorama globe image.
- Propeller Protoboard
- Three Pushbuttons
- Two motors with encoders
- Dogm Display
- Infrared LED to release the camara shutter
Panorama Head and Inner Guts showing the motors and the protoboard.
My first panorama in eqirectangular projection.
My second panorama in Stereographic projection.
... and I'm only just beginning... :-)
The panoramas are very useful for me as backgrounds and reflection maps for 3D animation, for Panoramic VR Images and Print Publications.
post a full documentation of the project as soon as I have all the drivers cleaned up, after some finishing touches to the panocam and as soon as the wheather gets worse. ;-)
Once more thanks so many times to all the kind people providing help and knowledge on this forum and in the object exchange, especially:
- Jeff Martin for the quadrature encoder
- Tom Doyle for the infrared objects
- DeSilva for writing the dogm driver
And thanks to parallax - this chip really makes dreams come true.
