I have decided to make a panning head for a DSLR. Since this is for timelapse, I need speeds ranging from 1rpm to 1/1000 rpm.
Since I am in India, it means I can only buy stuff from aliexpress or ebay global sellers.
I have a few questions.
- I see stepper motors with 1.8 degree step angle coupled with 14:1 gearboxes. Does it mean that the end shaft will turn 1.8/14 degrees with each step?
Example : This motor
I will need to the shaft to some kind of plate with a 3/4" screw to mount a tripod head. What do you recommend
For driving the motor, I want some kind of 5-7V driver. The reason is I can use a USB powerbank or 2*LiIon cells. What do you recommend.
Can you point me to the required audrino board and software so I can change rotational speed in the field. I would need some kind of display.
I want very basic setup.
For example a divider value
1 = Full speed = 1rpm
5 = 1/5 rpm
1000 = 1/1000 RPM
So very basic motion control. Nothing fancy.
If any of you have seen a guide to making such a setup(step by step with pictures) please let me know.
Since I can buy only from aliexpress or ebay international, unique fancy parts are out of question.
