StackShot 3X and Pan Tilt Setup
One Controller - Many Applications

Why purchase a Giga-pixel scanner, an automated turntable, and a panoramic head for time lapse separately when you can purchase a StackShot 3X system and use the same components to achieve all of this. StackShot 3X is a modular system with incredible flexibility. It is the next generation StackShot controller featuring 2 additional stepper motor controllers to allow complete 3 axis motion control. It is equipped with a touch screen user interface with haptic feedback making number entry quick and easy. You will also find USB and Wi-Fi on the StackShot 3X to allow control with your computer.
