iOptron iPano AllView overview

  • 1Description

Designed for time-lapse wide-field and starscape astrophotography or 360° panoramic imaging, iOptron's iPANO AllView Pro Camera Mount can be used with most DSLR cameras to capture stunning photos or video with virtually no vibration, backlash or play. Utilizing dual stepper motors that run at 0.0001°/step with pan/tilt precision to within 0.01°, it can be controlled from an iPhone or iPad running the IPan Commander app using the built-in WiFi or from a computer using the integrated RS232 port. The fully customizable system comes with an array of pre-configured panorama and time-lapse programs for inspiration for capturing the Moon and planets as they track across the sky, time-lapse images of traffic patterns, or breathtaking panoramics.

The iPANO comes with seven electronic trigger leases for popular brands such as Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Sony with other options available separately. A basic 1/4"-20 quick-release plate attaches the camera, and the camera cradle adjusts to accommodate most camera and lens sizes and configurations for proper balance and weight distribution to ensure smooth and easy motion. The iPANO is offered here as just a mount head, so a tripod is required for proper operation. For convenience the head is outfitted with a 3/8"-16 tripod mount and a 1/4"-20 adapter for smaller support systems.

    iOptron iPano AllView reviews

    iPANO AllView Pro Camera Mount (Mount Only) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well but a lot of gotchas The device works well but there are some flaws: 1. If the distance to the NPP on your camera is large you cannot point 90 upward because the knob on the camera dovetail will collide with the bubble level on the base. You can remove the level and get more clearance but at least on a Canon EOS 80D with a 16-35/4 @16 you really cannot extend it the necessary distance. BE VERY CAREFUL THE MOUNT DOES NOT STOP IF IT ENCOUNTERS AND OBSTACLE 2. The manual describes how to change the wifi settings. It doesn't work because after you authenticate the device serves a 404 error. 3. Using bracketing for HDR does not work. The camera does not change exposure. I do not see how it could ever work because the mount would have to communicate with the camera firmware but I don't see how that is possible when the mount only is connected via a shutter release cable. I have found the best way to do HDR is: a) Set your camera in burst mode b) Set up the exposure bracketing on the camera as desired c) set bracketing to 1 on mount which effectively ignores it. d) set the shutter assert time to be long enough for your camera to fire a burst that captures the entire exposure bracket e) set the exposure time on the mount high enough so that is doesn't move the mount before your burst is complete. This results in the correct number of images bracketed as expected even though the mount thinks it is only taking one shot. 4. The remote commander software is Windows and ios only. There is no OS X or linux versions. 5. The autodetect for serial connections fails. This is easily overcome by setting it manually. 6. The bundled software is imo not ready for prime time. It kept crashing and I never received any response from support. I gave up on it after a few attempts. I recommend Microsoft ICE for building your panos. I would recommend the product but you should check your camera/lens combo first to make sure you are going to have clearance. The calibration of the FOV for you lens is easy. Forget about using HDR via the mount. The wifi basically sucks. It requires you to use the mounts LAN and is limited by the range of the mounts transmitter. What they really need is a mechanism to either use the built in wifi or connect the mount to an existing network the way Canon does. The wifi has no password protection and although the manual claims you can change it you can't. The serial connection works well once you manually set the port. The bundled compositor software is useless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For my use its fantastic Looking for high quality way of providing high quality 360 zoomable panoramic images is a challenge. The images provided by 360fly, Samsung gear 360 and other smaller units are very limited on still image output and in lower lighting conditions are abysmal. Thus a digital mirrorless or DSLR is the only way to get what we needed. Quick and easy setup with the iPano. If you need to mount the camera vertically you can with the added bracket but find it cumbersome to transport if in that configuration as it does not pack within the case. Device operates very well even in ambient temperatures of 120F. Wifi signal is terrific, able to operate remotely beyond 30ft using the iPano Commander app ($5.00 in app store). Down side is there is no android app that I could find. Using the iPano Commander app is a must when doing repetitive panoramas in many locations. Once you have the circular pano settings created all you need to do is move the camera rig to the new location and start the action again. Without the app you need to manually set it up each time using the panel keys on the rig. Primarily our work is industrial with low lighting. Currently using this mount with Sony A7RII and Zeiss Batis 18mm for great image quality without the need for too many images to complete a 360 pano. 18mm on full frame requires about 24 images and creates a final image size of about 28,000 x 13,000 in jpg format.
