Default Wheels but not Tires

I picked up this handy little gadget today. It mounts on your tripod and once the bubble is level you mount the camera on the wheel. Then shoot and rotate camera. Each click or shot is 30. I will be sure to test this out at our local nudist camp. Meanwhile, here is a wheel - not a tire.

Definitely qualifies, Bynx! Nice shot. Is that device good for panorama sequences? That would seem to be what it is designed for.

Thats exactly what it is for. The bubble ensures your camera is level. And when mounted on that wheel, the clicks make it easy to get all the shots exactly lined up the same. Clever little device selling for $25 CDN. If you go to that web address printed on the side of the gyzmo there is compete instructions on how to use it.

I am curious if the 30 segments overlap. I guess that would depend on the lens in use. Stitching programs require some overlap to properly line things up.
