Automate; Camera Mount Roboticizes Ubiquitous Panoramic Transversals for DSLR Cameras

Don French has invented a DSLR camera mount that offers ubiquitous capture management that can be programed to do time lapse movies, time lapse panoramas, event triggers and adds a PDA/cellphone interface as well so you can trigger it from a few feet away.

The various functions of AutoMate can be mixed and matched in unique ways. For example, the intervalometer can execute a program to take a series of photographs while moving the camera. You can tell the robot to take multiple photographs at every node of a panorama. You can even program the self timer to run complex programs if you so desire. Since everything is programmable by the user with a simple, easy-to-use interface, there are no limitations on what you can do.

View some of its features here. It may be worth noting that Automate is a complete package there are also more robust motorized mounts as can be seen here and should you require professional discussion about this topic then perhaps go to this Forum.
