I was using the easy driver for one axis, having bought it by accident. It was mixed with two BigED's on another two axises (axii?), but there were so many trial-and-error things to work out I swapped it out for a third BED in the end…"
"Weirdly it functions without any settings-I put in 1 degree per step just to have some feedback on screen,and left the others at zero. An accidental discovery, as I just started experimenting before I remembered about the axis settings.
"Hi John, I have run some tests with Canon auto lenses, which do have servo motors. I have done some actual usable shooting with a STM pancake 35mm lens, which is a stepper motor lens.
Both are slightly hit and miss, mainly because ARC doesn't…"
"Hi Doug, sorry about the focus. The test I did was with Canon 600d with a standard Canon kit lens, at college. At home I have a custom motorised focus, like yours but not as nicely made, for my manual lenses and that suits fine.
I will try the belt…"
I went! I could only stay an hour, and the talk was already on when I arrived and still going when I had to go...
I was in the green jacket- Martin said 'gosh hello' when I arrived ( I haven't been for a while) There was a…"
Would give the Canon lens flicker problem, yes. It depends on the application whether that's an issue- I'm setting something up for a college, where we are using Canon 600D's with Canon kit lenses for the most part, so we are…"
"Have also just realised that, where you are using auto-lenses, you can add 'digital focus' as an axis in the Arc window, even with no track attached. You just need to add a new axis and select digital focus in the first drop down menu."
"Have started using the new DFmoco 1.1.2 sketch, at last, with no ill effect on my track and look forward to testing out the benefits.
(a sketch is a piece of code Dragonframe have written for third party boards like the Arduino. The Arduino is an…"
