Think of it as an autonomous sentry if you will; sort of. Meet the PanoCatcher, a new device that hooks up to your tripod and holds your camera in place to capture panoramic images, 360 photos, and much more. It even lets you shoot timelapse sequences with a slight panning effect.
Best of all, it seems to be doing all this for a pretty affordable price point.
The PanoCatcher hooks up to your tripod, selfie stick or monopod and then connects to your camera using a camera shutter release cable to help control exactly what’s going on by using a 3/8ths or 1/4 20 attachment. It’s capable of moving at a full 180 degrees per second and is made of anodized aluminum.
It can be controlled from up to 300 feet away using the remote that it comes with. For 299 Euros, you can have one for yourself; but the products are being made in very small batches at the moment.
