Full motion wireless system
By combining Motion X2 and S1A1 mounted on a Shark slider S1, we managed to get a full motion wireless control system. It allows camera movements on two axis: 90deg. tilt and 360deg. pan. The system provides steady and automatic movements for time-lapses and shooting while panning as well as panoramas. Its main components are the wireless shutter controller, the electronic motor section, the wireless motorized controller and the Motion X2.
A completely programmable system
Just like S1A1, S1A3 is completely programmable being able to register up to 9 different tracks with pre-recorded movements. The tracks are easily accessible from the data packet and can be reused as needed. With repeated moves at different lengths of time, a wide range of visual effects can also be achieved easily. In addition, the S1A3 offers 'Manual Mode' which is perfect for run-and-gun style without losing precision. Its user friendly interface allows you to grab shots on-the-fly with no pre-programmed motion control.
Time lapse and stop motion
iFootage Single Axis' strength is the time-lapse shoot and 360deg. panoramas. It controls the time-lapse by the number of stills as well as length of time. It has an Ease In/Out function and a Preview setting which helps users understand the video effect before shooting therefore increasing their success rate. Stop motion is also made easy with the S1A3. All you have to do is set up the number of frames and the time and then simply advance through each position to achieve a flawless end product. Our system perfectly integrates with Autopano, allowing you to create beautiful 360deg. panoramic images. Also the system allows you to do simple parallax adjustments for various cameras.
Just like you would use the system for time-lapses, you could just as much use it to create beautiful 360deg. panoramic images or videos with the ability to shoot in any angle. Autopano software is the perfect companion for a videographer that shoots panoramas.
The build quality of S1A3 is noticeable improved. It performs flawlessly in extreme environments withstanding even the harshest of conditions. Solid aluminum and quality craftsmanship are trademarks of iFootage products and this system benefited fully from this. It is solid and sturdy, supporting a maximum load of 8kg. It has a working time of approximately 12 hours in a continuous video shoot or about 16 hours in time-lapse mode.
