Your fancy panorama head is now obsolete

And it only costs about 3 times what a good pan head costs

Thanks Doug,

just what I needed: another pano gadget :-)

I'm amazed by the low cost ($379) considering what they claim it does.
On the other side, it is a shame that only appears to work with P&S cameras

Yeah put a 20MP camera on there, then let it rip away and then make a great pano with how big a file size?

How about letting it snap it's pans, then redo with the EV set up and down 2 or 3. Then you could have a perfectly registered HDR panorama. Or do it with several exposures and focus points, then use Photoshop CS4's new focus blend and you could have an HDR panorama with selectable depth-of-field.

Having it work on DSLRs might actually be an incumbrance. My little $200 Fuji camera takes 12MB raw files that would be perfect for this.
