Panoramic photos can truly capture the beauty of the world's breathtaking landscapes, but not every camera can do them very well on their own (or at all). This custom camera rig sits on top of a normal tripod and allows a normal point and shoot camera to create amazing panoramas automatically.
In the video above, from the Make YouTube channel, Jason Poel Smith explains the process of building such a mount. You'll need an Arduino and few servos to construct it, but when it's finished, you'll be able to take high-quality panoramic pictures with almost any point and shoot camera. After you take your photos, you can stitch them together in Photoshop or a free photo stitching program like Hugin. Check out the link below for a complete how-to guide.
