eMotimo Spectrum ST4-201 - Tune and Feel
The Spectrum ST4 excels in smooth programed and live shots. The first time you use it, you will find that it's faster, smoother, and quieter than our previous products and anything else on the market (anywhere near it’s class).
This video is an overview of how to select a video preset for live shooting.
It’s easy to set up programmed moves and let the Spectrum drive, but in certain cases, it can be necessary to manually drive your camera around. We’ve given you the flexibility to do so.
Here are some examples:
1) Complex motion in which 2- or 3-point moves are approximation and don’t frame a shot well
2) Run and gun shooting in which you have seconds instead of minutes to capture a shot.
3) With zoom and macro lenses (typically) you can’t capture a live scene manually without introducing camera shake
In each of these cases, selecting the right shooting mode or motor preset, will get you going faster with the right “feel”. When live shooting, the right feel or motion response will give you the correct balance of speed and damping for a scene. There is no “correct” selection. We recommend you try them all out and see what feels right for you. With the latest firmware, we’ve enabled users to create and save their own presets.
