The Axis360 Motor and Controller from Cinetics lets you create dynamic video and time lapse photography sequences with fluid and precise motorised slides, pans, and tilts. It features the powerful Axis360 digital stepper motor, which proves smooth or incremental movements, and a Controller unit for running the motor. A travel bag is included for storing the Axis360 and Controller.

The Axis360's motor drive has a 1/4"-20 threaded screw for attaching your camera or a mounting bracket. A 1/4"-20 mounting thread on the bottom of the unit is provided for mounting the motor to a tripod, slider, or other support system. The motor can be configured to pan a camera, tilt when used with a tripod and the optional Balance Kit, and slide when used with the Axis360 Pro slider's pulley system. The motor supports up to 11 pounds, making it compatible with most DLSR, mirrorless, and digital cinema cameras.

The Controller is the brains behind the Axis360, using CineMoco software to control smooth movement and synchronised time lapse photos. The Controller works with most video cameras and can sync moves and time lapse photos on most Canon and Nikon DLSR cameras using optional cables. A built-in rechargeable battery provides six hours of continuous operation on a single charge or up to 24 hours in power save mode. In video mode, the Controller unit provides speeds up to 110° per second.

For time lapse photography, it enables incremental movements as small as 0.03°. For multi-axis moves, additional motors and controllers are needed. Controllers can be controlled individually or daisy chained together with a standard 3.5mm stereo cable for synchronised control.

Note: An optional shutter release cable is required to fire your camera during time lapse photography. It is important to select the right cable based on the port type on your camera.
