I chipped in $125.

Hope it comes to fruition, I'm open-arms for something than the Little Bramper and rigged setups from intervelometers, servos and duck tape.

LOL, same thing. I'm in the same boat as you, dropping money for it too.

just a note on kickstarter: if the project doesn't clear the goal set, the project is not funded and your credit card will not be charged. This one needs $150k more to go in 28 days.

I like the idea... I don't like the iOS integration. I do assume it will work on other platforms later on, but even though I have an iPhone now I may not next year. That makes this product impossible to use...

Edit I wonder what torque... what weight it can support. If doing a vertical tilt, can it steadily hold and move a full frame DSLR with a heavy lens?

The Radian has both Android and iOS apps, and has been tested doing vertical with a 5D3 and 24-70.

just backed the pan and tilt combo after i saw the video with the Dynamic perception rig

would be so much easier to carry around than a merlin head

I got in on the $125 pledge last night, my first kickstarter pledge, hope they make their goal.

Even if they don't make their goal, the other similar product linked here:

has already passed their goal by quite a big margin and looks to be more useful IMO. Personally I'm waiting for reviews to come out before dropping the dough.

But competition is always good, so good luck to them.

I'm friends with the founder of this product, Kris is a cool guy, his friends did the yosemite HD video (external link) and he did the majority of this (external link) himself. Kris says that his team should be releasing a more detailed demo of the iphone app after this weekend, I like the infinite customization of the Radian, yeah the Astro has on board controls, but I'm not to sold on the whole camera mount power button combo on the Astro. Sure I'm Biased :D, but the Radian is designed to work with other timelaspe equipment and you can link 2 together! Alright I'll shut up :D

Why the Radion over the eMotimo?

I like that the eMotimo can be programmed without another device, and it will trigger the dynamaic perception dolly for sms.

The merlin head can be programed with the MX2 a well as the Emotimo. (im sure they will work something out with this as they seem to be using DP rigs )

But the main reason i would go this is for travel purposes it doesn't weigh much and is quite small and easy to pack not many parts that can break off no exposed wires, needs nothing extra apart from 1 wire and a phone which i always have anyway. OK the Emotimo is pretty small and light as well even so

Also the price $125+ bucks compared to $729+ (for international version)

Does anyone else think that, from the videos, the panning from the footage of the time lapses aren't that smooth? That would be a total deal breaker.

I think I will spring for the Astro. Not very elaborate, but runs on 2 AA batteries and does not require an external device to program.
