Fanotec has over 19 years of experience in building products specifically designed for panoramic and high-resolution photographers.
We know firsthand what users need. Our first pano head, produced in 2004, is still being used today.
Fanotec advanced with state-of-the-art CAD and CNC machinery resulting in higher precision products, including advanced rotators allowing more pano head configurations, and ring clamp style pano heads.
Also added to the product line, turntables for those doing object movies, accessories and add-ons to many products, modular pano heads, modular carbon fiber poles, Fanotec's Nodal Ninja M2 Giga with its patented design allowing for super high resolution gigapixel
photography, to name just a few of them.
In early 2019 the MECHA was born. Consumer technology meeting customer needs with a very affordable price tag under $300.
First in the lineup is the auto-rotator (E1) with the single axis controller (C1). Precision built with quality motors, components and circuitry. It’s capable of controlling camera functions autonomously with the push of 1 of 3 buttons which actuate onboard customizable preset sequences. Users can also control the MECHA via Wi-Fi through a mobile device web browser, no app required.
Firmware updates are also accomplished wirelessly through the Internet.
Other uses include the ability to shoot stereoscopic 3d panoramas, turntable object VR, image bracketing for HDR, time-lapse photos, video applications, and more.
Next are auto-rotators of varying sizes and weight load capacities along with additional features to include a dedicated dual-axis controller with an OLED display.
The rotators are modular and can be used with different controllers supporting up to 4 axis (to allow use on slider rails and cables).
Users will be able to create spherical multi-row panoramas as well as extreme high-resolution, gigapixel imagery with a price point
Fanotec leads the industry in providing panoramic hardware solutions.
