That's kind of how servo's work - you tell them the angle to go to, and they try and get there as fast as they can.You'll have to write some code that'll moves it in steps.So instead of a single "Turn to 90 degrees" command, issue a set ofTurn to 1 degreewait a tiny bitTurn to 2 degreeswait a tiny bitTurn to 3 degrees...A "Tiny Bit" varies depending on how fast you want to move the servo.
Less than one degree? That's pretty fine. From 12:00 to 12:01 on my watch is 6 degrees.I'm not sure on the detailed internals of servos, but you could roll-your-own servo control and calculate your own PWM pulses, I guess.That's assuming you're using something more clever than a little £5 hobby-servo. Some of those rattle by more than what you're looking for
Interesting. Are you moving your camera one step, then stopping for a noticeable while, then another step, etc? Or is it a smooth-but-slow pan? I'm just curious if the momentum of the kit would keep it smooth enough, even at 1 degree steps.Have you tried it? I only ask, as the risk of prematurely 'optimising' the thing to milli-degree angles might not be necessary.
