Compact and lightweight, the 360-degree remotely controlled rotating head PIXI Pano360, from Manfrotto, is designed for smartphone, CSC, DSLR’s and GoPro cameras.
The PIXI Pano360 is a new and innovative solution to take creative images and videos in a simple and immediate way. Easy to carry around, intuitive and easy to set up and use, the remotely controlled rotating head is designed to work with both smartphones and traditional cameras, up to 2Kg.
With real 360° head movement, the PIXI Pano360 uses a photographic stitching algorithm to produce one seamless panoramic. The dedicated and intuitive app gives you full control over speed rotation and precise angle control meaning you can get the exact image or video you want to capture. The time lapse and hyper lapse are quick and intuitive to set up, and you can also create super wide angle panoramas just by setting the width.
The PIXI Pano360 is equipped with ¼” inch thread screw on top, to securely hold your device, and ¼” thread attachment on the bottom, for tripods and is made of high quality metal, with small plastic details. For smartphone users it is simple to use: attach your phone using the included smartphone holder, set up the picture and let the head complete its 360° turn.
Manfrotto claims that the PIXI Pano360 makes it extremely quick and easy to shoot time lapse video and panoramas, without the need of wasting time in post-production phase thanks to the complete app that guide the users in all the phases of the shooting.
The rotating head charges via a USB cable and it has a Bluetooth wireless connection for remote control. Users can opt for an included remote control and a dedicated iOS App. Precision panoramas and moving Time Lapse videos can be shot through the App, thanks to an intuitive and simple workflow that guides users throughout all shooting options.
The new accessory can be used with the Manfrotto line of tripods under the same name, PIXI, which are portable and ideal for small cameras and smartphones. For DSLRs and other cameras a sturdier tripod might be a safer choice. The PIXI Pano360 is priced at £124.95 (+/- $160).
