The system is amazingly flexible, designed to assemble into many configurations quickly and easily. Each block contains its own servo motor, gearing and micro-electronics; all housed in a quality machined anodized aluminum body. Modules can be configured to work as: pan axis, tilt axis, dolly, underslung hot head, product movers, lens controls, and more. Use them individually or connect them together and use many at once.
You control it all with a handheld computer running the camBLOCK software, utilizing a familiar timeline/keyframe interface. You can synchronously control 1 to 16 camBLOCKS simultaneously to create simple to complex motion control.
The camBLOCK System represents a remarkable value, making motion control more affordable than ever before.
Once you have set up your shot, you can play it back at any speed (up to the maximum motor speed). Run it faster if you think the move is too slow, or run it extremely slow for timelapse. There is no slow limit, you can turn a 30 second real time move into an all day timelapse. You can even composite real time and timelapse shots to be composited together.
Synchronized timelapse allows you to shoot multiple timelapse shots simultaneously, multiplying your productivity. When shooting timelapse you typically shoot one frame at a time, waiting several seconds between shots. With syncronized timelapse you set up several shots, and the camBLOCK system will shoot them simultaneously, utilizing the previously wasted time between shots.
