The new RODEON piXposer replaces the RODEON VR Head HD and elevates itself into new heights of technical precision.
Do you create reproductions and photographs with ease in the three-digit gigapixel range?
The RODEON piXposer is the flagship of the RODEON piX Series, and worldwide "State of the Art" in the field of gigapixel photography. This fully automatic pan-tilt head sets itself apart from other models by its enormous rigidity and payload because of the "Double-U" construction. This feature, paired with the high precision and strength of the gears, as well as the magnetic brake at it's base plate, are the best combination for extreme high resolutions in the range of gigapixel imaging for use with long focal length telephoto lenses and heavy photographic equipment. Designed and manufactured for meeting highest requirements regarding stability, strength, and precision in photography and movies. Use your premium photo or film equipment together with the RODEON piXposer! This combination allows you to create technically perfect panoramic images and video pans in a quick and clean workflow, even under difficult conditions. Controlling software included.
With the heavy-duty gears, the RODEON piXposer can be positioned precisely without shaking, and then a 360° x 180° panorama of the highest detail is captured. It paves the way for shooting HDR images or high-resolution reproductions up to three-digit gigapixel resolution range. It's new WLAN 802.11b/g/n feature - our world first - allows for wireless and operating system independent control, the requirement for a high degree of professionalism.

True to the motto "Never change a winning team" - of course, you can use your best professional photographic equipment - the RODEON piXposer is compatible with almost all DSLR and medium format cameras.
A Special Head For Special Requirements
Gigapixel photography techniques differs from common panoramic techniques especially since the equipment that has to be moved is heavier, that is, the rotary difference between two captured frames is much smaller and the requirements on stability between one image capture to the next is critical because of the smaller field of view. For these special requirements, the RODEON piXposer has been designed and has risen to international "State of the Art" standards.
Typically, for wide-angle and panoramic images, standard camera exposure settings are used. However, the use of HDR (high dynamic range) techniques have become popular where complete exposure bracketing is done at every camera position. The great stability of the RODEON piXposer during the whole exposure bracketing offers the best means for utilizing HDR techniques, even at highest zoom levels.
Projection flashbulbs can be mounted on the RODEON piXposer frame as well that follow the pan-tilt-movement synchronously with the camera.
Because of that, the RODEON piXposer is a real and much cheaper (!) alternative to large-scale scanners, which has already been proven by some of our costumers with spectacular projects.
All systems include the RODEONmodular browser-based controlling software via WLAN (802.11b/g/n) or LAN (RJ-45).
The RODEONpreview 2.x PRO (Windows only) is available as an optional software. With this full-featured software, aside from controlling the head, more functions are available providing support, planning and the realization of your project.
