clickPAN-USB is tiny, light, and forms the heart of an automatic camera shoot & pan system.

clickPAN-USB triggers the shutter of cameras with USB shutter release and operates a servo motor together. Originally designed for autoKAP where a camera is allowed to rotate and take pictures whilst flying below a kite, it can be used with kites, balloons, and any application where a camera is "hung" in a location where the operator cannot access the controls. 

The unit can be used with a 5 second and 10 second delay between shutter / pan sequences. The servo moves about 30 degrees each time, although this can be adjusted if your servo has had a "trimmer" added as part of the 360degree modification.

In the image shown the USB cable to the camera is on the right. On the left are 2x 3pin connections, one for the battery (3 to 5.5volts) and one for the pan servo.

clickPAN provides the electronic heart of these systems, you need to add the mechanical "rig" to hold the servo and camera. If you would rather buy a kit of parts look at www.brooxes.com or www.kapshop.com.

To operate with Canon cameras the camera must have a minor enhancement called SDM or CHDK added to the camera via the SD card, which enables operation of this device as well as many other creative possibilities for remote photographers. There are more details on this here.
