The Radian: For a Camera Pro?
4 months ago

Hi all,

I'm not overly into cameras. My brother is a professional photographer and videographer with lots of expensive equipment, but I don't believe he has this thing I just found: The Radian.
an anyone comment on whether this item has a professional-photographer's equivalent? Would a professional photographer prefer to have something higher end than this? Is this just for camera enthusiasts? Or is this a useful little tool for just about anyone?

This link might be more useful:

It looks like a decent piece of kit IF you want to do that sort of work. Personally I wouldn't add something like this to my arsenal -- too specialised.

If you're after a Christmas present for the photographer who has everything you could also consider a Phantom 2 Vision.

Their site says "panning and tilting".  I saw panning, and I saw tilting, but I didn't see panning AND tilting.

Seems to me I've seen some other stuff like this over the years?  Also, haven't amateur astronomers been using things like this with their telescopes for a long time?
