Pan-Tilt-Head / Slider (Dolly)
I use an eMotimo TB3 black pan-tilt-head in combination with DynamicPerception's Stage One slider/dolly.
The things I needed are not yet available in stores in Switzerland, so it took me quite a while to find out, what exactly I had to order from eMotimo, DynamicPerception and other shops.
My special thanks go out to Gunther Wegner (gwegner.de / lrtimelapse.com). His online reviews and informations about sliders / dollies helped me a lot in making my decisions. And then there is another big "thank you!" to the staff of eMotimo and DynamicPerception. Their pre-order-support was very helpful and both the shipments to Switzerland took less than a week! Wow!
The video on the right hand side shows you the complete setup of the eMotimo TB3 and the DynamicPerception Stage One Dolly/Slider. You will see all the components I had to assemble in order to have my own motorized 3-way pan-tilt-head on a dolly for DSLR timelapse.
