ShooTools AutoPan – The First Universal Panning Tool That Works with Any Slider in the Market

by planetMitch1 Comment

Sliders are everywhere and a key component to moving your camera. But sometimes making smooth repeatable movements and panning at the same time is required but nearly impossible to do by hand (unless you practice a lot). 

In steps ShooTools with their new AutoPan device – which works with ANY slider on the market. Yep, ANY slider.

Plus it is programmable and even has a smartphone app to assist.

While I ran out of time at NAB to see this in action, I did have a chance to sit down with Andrea at lunch one of the days and could see his passion for this device. And I think once you see it you will too. Very clever and very useful.

Plus, there is a special pre-release sale! Scroll down to see the graphic.
