An automatic DSLR rig for capturing 2D/3D panorama and 360 photosphere (rotates around no-parallax point). It is also designed for capturing dense outward lightfield on a sphere of radius around 20cm (no-parallax point on a sphere) — to hopefully create stereoscopic full-parallax rendering for VR.

The design is inspired by Phil Warner’s panobot https://www.flickr.com/photos/philwarner/sets/72157603776902016/
I tried to make it as compact as possible with one battery source. It has a screen showing menu and options for configuring shots (HDR, rows, cols, angles, etc). The firmware can be updated over Wifi.

This rig is made specifically to rotate around the no-parallax point of Nikon D7200. The original fusion 360 is attached for modification and educational purposes.
The schematic and board designs (Eagle) are also provided.
