The Radian: For a Camera Pro?
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. http://app.alpinelaboratories.com/#home
Can 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?

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.
Every photograph is an abstraction from reality.
Most people are more interested in the picture than the image.
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?
