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.

Looks okay to me. At its core all of these timelapse devices are just rotating slightly, taking a photo, and rotating again so I don't see how they could have a problem. Problems you might be seeing might be from the assembly of the photos and not the unit itself.

It could be the device though if it's triggering an exposure at the wrong time. Think I'd prefer to wait and see what you guys make of them and then consider getting one.

well if you wait it may never get funded that's the whole idea of kick starter

In shooting time lapse footage, does it matter how smooth the movement is? I can understand if it were video...

If the panning intervals are not exactly the same, the time lapse won't be smooth.

Yep I understand how kick start works but not willing to buy something that I have doubts over. If it doesn't succeed, it doesn't succeed.

Yes the smoothness is key to a timelapse. People spend hours removing one flicker in an image just for that one frame so movement that is not smooth is a big problem

fitshaced if everyone had that attitude then no projects would ever get funded you have to take a gamble in life. (it will be harder for radian as the astro has just been funded so well ) but i understand your doubts each to there own

has already passed their goal by quite a big margin and looks to be more useful IMO.

What is more useful about it?

But the world doesn't work like that. It's up to these startups to take the risk. It's up to me to be more cautious with my money. I hope it's a success and works better than I think it will. And I would probably have bought one already of these doubts weren't there.

But, my money gets spent my way. If I was obliged to buy one just because I want a new time lapse device then these kick start companies would have zero risk.

If be buying the radian as it looks to be more functional. I can't see how to set a long exposure on the other one.

Your right didnt see that no night time lapses over 30 seconds then.

the astro only has

Duration of timelapse
Degrees of movement
time between moves
ability to set left or right
it does not have any functions to control the duration on the camera its just for triggereing

The radian being controled by the smart phone allows them to add new features and imrovements via the app.

The fact that I don't need a smartphone to use it for one.

If I am not mistaken the Astro group is in the process of developing an interface for connection to an external iOS or Android device. Then one will have the benefits of manual or enhanced configurations.

Well you can think of it this way: since the Radian's campaign is slightly shorter than the Astro's, if it fails, everyone can then jump ship to the Astro campaign.

And not all campaigns, even when funded, become available again. Some things may never see the light of day after this (which means you'd better hope it doesn't break, hah)

They said something about bulb ramping in the video and description... wonder how thatll work out, it seems a little odd to me how bulb ramping would work if you just start it and disconnect, but maybe thats just me? I am a little new to time lapse but have been doing plenty of research in the last few months as I delve more into photography...

I probably will wait for an update on the project then decided to buy, with my end goal to use it on a dynamic perception stage zero in the future.
