TL-BOX Pan/Tilt Head


TL-BOX is the new motorized two-axis head (horizontal and vertical) with a very compact design from Starworks, it may be placed in the bag with camera equipments and does not require any other accessories for its operation, only a tripod. Digital integrated electronics specially designed for creating time-lapse and panoramic shots in a continuous sequence and S-M-S. As a result of its digital timers and variable speed motors it is possible to take exposures from a minimum movements time of 2 minute to a maximum movements time of 24 hours, with pauses of 180 seconds between exposures.  This allows the capture of panoramic elements moving both slowly and quickly resulting in time-lapse videos never seen before.  Wide lcd display and 5 switches for a easy software control. With the new Goto function is possible to determine the beginning and end of the sequence and then decide on the duration and number of shots to perform. Another useful function is the Mosaic panel, you set the number of rows, columns and the horizontal and vertical offsets in degrees, the head then perform the sequence automaticallyThe new TL-BOX is equipped with a ON / OFF output (in S-M-S mode) that allows you to turn on / off an external motor which could be a homebuilt or other slider (maximum current up to 1 amp). Furthermore the TL-BOX have the Sync input for synchronization with the Starworks Sky Trail Pro slider.  Look at the video VIDEO 1 and VIDEO 2
