Sony A7s on a Nikon 70-200 F2.8 lens
Ok this time i made a Pan-Zoom-Focus thingy so it can pan and zoom and maintain focus all at the same time, and someone said to me it couldn't be done.
Done a test 600 shots at F2.8 of the fence zooming from 70mm to 200mm panning along the fence while staying in focus.
Now what am i going to use it for ?????

How is the panning implemented? Did you attach gears to the base of the ball head?

Will I used a Cognisys Rotary Table for the panning and 2 of their stepper motors to control the zoom and focus.

Jonathan in the first photo the front gear and motor control the focus and the other gear closest to the camera control the zoom and the whole camera and lens sits on the Cognisys turn table motor.
All motors are controlled by the Cognisys StackShot3
