Use the following workflow to create a high dynamic range panorama image series with a Promote Control and a motorized panoramic head:
1.Set up your camera on the motorized panoramic head.
2.Your panoramic head should come with a release cord compatible with a Canon EOS Rebel camera, such as XTi, T1i etc. Connect this panoramic head release cord to the panohead release port and then to the Promote Control remote sensor port. See Interfaces section for more details on the sensor port.
3.Set up your camera and Promote Control as described in High Dynamic Range Mode section.
4.Press "Start" on Promote Control to test the high dynamic range image sequence. Note how long the image sequence takes to complete.
5.Set up your motorized head as described in the head manual.
6.Use your motorized head settings to specify a delay between shots equal to the time it takes Promote Control to complete the sequence. Add 2-3 seconds extra for safety.
7.If your motorized head allows choosing an exposure time, set it to anything longer than 0.1 seconds. A value of 1 second is perfectly suitable.
8.Start your motorized head as described in its user manual.
You may want to attach your Promote Control to your motorized head for convenience while the images are being taken. A Promote Control Tripod Case (P/N PCTRL1-TR-CASE) may be used for this purpose.
