And For My Next Trick....... (aka Why I was hacking the GX80 in the first place)

Recommended Posts

Also, would you like to develop a phone app for that? I have couple of nice ideas how it should work, I can draw some sort of draft.



The idea behind this is simple - you have a big ass slider at your finger tips, and you can set focus pull marks just by pressing those buttons, which will limit the focusing distance. This will make pulling focus a pleasant enjoyable experience! The draft is very basic, but you should get the idea. It also would be cool to add some gesture support, like - 1 finger scroll = normal speed. 2 fingers = more precise and slow. So a person would be able to switch those on the fly to his liking.

You are awesome man! So will it work on the device like this?




they are both Bluetooth though. There are tons of similar controllers for 2-5$ everywhere. That would make my gimbal workflow so much better, incredible!

upd: so you already confirmed that it will work on the previous page. Do we need to modify those devices somehow? How do you make them work with a camera via wifi?

Patience, patience ;)

All will be revealed when its finished.

The hardware module part of my system  does the WiFi part and I can interface to that with USB, wireless (as in the controller from the video) and Bluetooth.

As I said in the other thread, I'm collecting a few different controllers (in about an hour actually) and at least one of them will be suitable for what you want. Bear in mind as I said at the start of this thread that the reason that the cinelike d happened was as a byproduct of me researching to make a hardware controller. And specifically one for a gimbal so its all in hand :)

hmm..  any news on this one?


There are two polls running on here for features and controller choice.

So its very close now. 

A bit delayed because there will be some different hardware that its going to run on so I need to re-write stuff but its weeks rather than months.

Lanparte Remote for Sony and Panasonic:


Same thing, but different tech.

Lamparte will be better for camera battery life because it uses remote lanc port, with no wifi required.

BTM_Pix design will be more configurable/customizable and no need the receiver on camera side.

I hope Btm is still working on that. 

How easy would be to create a new color profile to match other cameras (or luts) with this controller? 

If i get close to have Canon colors or a Fuji Eterna on my gx85, I'd never sell it!
