I used rotations sensor for the rotation axis. The shutter uses a touch sensor that get "brushed" as the crank arm rotates past it and there is also a light sensor hanging off the back to check the go/no go led's on the camera. The touch sensor is tripped before the shutter button is pushed - this allows me to stop it before pushing shutter button second time. If red led is detected by light sensor, the shutter motor reverses until the touch sensor is tripped, then waits until red led goes off before trying again. Hope that clarifies.

Thanks, your explanations are really helpfull. The use of a light sensor is a great idea. I'll try to build mine as two separe piece, a rotative table and a camera holder in order to take both 360 views of places as you did, and 360 views of objects (using only the rotative table) as Steve does in his reviews.

Do you use a compatible software to create your 360 or do I have to buy the $400 VR authoring studio ?

Default i use panoramafactory

I use panoramafactory to make my 360 VR's.

http://www.panoramafactory.com

It only does the 360's with viewer in centre - I haven't found anything reasonably priced to do 360's of objects.

I wandered in here. A few remarks:
Cant see any of the pictures/panoramas people are talking about. Dont see anything to click on. Tried both IE and Firefox.

A nice free program is AutoStitch. It does what the name implies. My first panorama was hand-held with just a bit of overlap: http://www.pixeltornado.com/digital_photography.html autostitch is here:
http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/autostitch/autostitch.html . Because it is a demo, it only works in jpg.

It took a long time to find 3d rotation software (the oposite of panorama sftwr), but I finally found a great flash based one here: http://www.yofla.com/flash/3d-rotate/
You dont need a flash program to use it.

Wow, this is a really old thread.

My panos were on a server at the UofMinnesota that I no longer use so they won't show up. I suspect the same thing happened to other folks images as well.
