Outstanding timelapse tool
From Morten Berg of Oslo, Norway on 6/22/2014.
During the past years, I have tried a lot of time lapse equipment. Emotimo TB3 is by far the easiest and user friendly tool I've ever purchased. Planning a pan or tilt with other motion controls I have used in the past were rather complicated and time consuming- with the TB3, it just takes a few minutes. Another advantage with the TB3 is the low weight, which makes it easy to carry if you are hiking. Highly recommended!

this is an awesome product which will expand my time lapse and photography skills allowing more options and freedom best buy ever
Step 1) Remove from box. Step 2) Awesome time lapses
From B Shaw of Washington, District of Columbia on 5/11/2014.
Phenomenally easy to start. Really. Just follow the fold-out instructions. For knuckle-heads like me, the people at eMotimo were gracious enough to include pictures. Last week, I took my first time lapse within minutes of opening the box.. It was of my gracious, beautiful wife on the couch ... looking angrily at me for photographing her again ... so I can't publish it because I like to sleep inside our house. Anyway, it really was easy to shoot the first time lapse and everyone since. Equally easy is setting up and shooting panoramas. I'm surprised this hasn't been emphasized more and I'm surprised that more pano photographers haven't started to clamor for this. Of all the things that surprised me that first day trying the eMotimo TB3, perhaps I'm most surprised by the fact that my wife had the same expression in so many of those frames. Most husbands know the expression that I'm describing. It's the expression that says, "You're in trouble. I love you, but your in trouble. Again." So, this past week has been good. I got this truly awesome eMotimo TB3 and I didn't have to sleep outside. 2 for 2. That's a good week in my books.r/B Shaw

Excited to add the eMotimo to my creative toolset - very simple to use and I love how it is supported through continuous firmware updates!
The Best Tool for Timelapse
From Nate Wetterauer of Seattle, Washington on 5/7/2014.
This is the tool your timelapses have been looking for. Easy to set up and the menu is straight forward. You can also easily add another axis and connect a slider. I am no longer hindered by my equipment but only by my creativity.
I love the TB3 eMotimo
From Richocam of Sydney, Australia on 4/30/2014.
I love the TB3. Within minutes of opening the box we were shooting! Programming is easy and logical.Apart from great time lapses we keep thinking of other shots in video mode because of the TB3's repeatability.
New favorite toy.
From Daniel Sather of Chicago, Illinois on 4/24/2014.
This is so unbelievably cool. I highly recommend it for both real time video work and timelapses. I'm quite happy with mine.
From Obaid Musabbeh of Dubai on 4/17/2014.
I just got this product recently and have not used it heavily, but after the first few experiments I would say that I am very amazed of this product which changed my direction in timelapse photography and taken it to a whole new level. Easy to use, fun and attract a lot of attention when in public :). A must have for any timelapse photographer who wants to introduce motion to their timelapse.
From Hugo Bordes of Los Angeles, California on 4/16/2014.
The TB3 is a very cool piece of gear. I've owned for about 2 months and I can't seem to go on a shoot without it anymore. It's sturdy, reliable and super easy to use. I've just started using it in video mode as well and the ramping is so smooth that I don't even use the fluid head of my tripod anymore. If I could make it better I'd get rid of the remote and have an iPhone app connect with it in bluetooth or wifi: less stuff to carry. I also noticed that there's a lot of empty space inside the body/box; maybe the whole thing could be flatter and take less room. I'm also not a big fan of the robotic sounds that the device makes when the head rotates during set up.Besides those minor things I think it's pretty awesome device that gets the job done at a great price.Thanks guys!
12/2/2013 -- Hello. In case I replace the Dynamic Perception motor for yours would I still need the DP MX controller? When using one of . . .
Response From eMotimo: Great Questions. Here is how it works. When using our motors (steppers) the DP MX controllers are not part of the system. You program the slide just like the pan and tilt setting start and endpoints. Yes, with this programming, three axis motion is not only possible but really easy to set up. The TB3 has a built in intervalometer to time the movement - use it so that you can time your shooting with the motion (in most cases we want your camera still for the entire exposure).
11/13/2013 -- Will the TB3 work with Dynamic Perception stepper motors? Is there an adapter available.
Response From eMotimo: The TB3 will not work with Dynamic Perceptions motors. The TB3 uses 4-wire, geared stepper motors for their repeatable accuracy. Dynamic Perceptions uses 2-wire, DC motors. There is no adapter to make DC motors compatible with the TB3.
7/8/2013 -- Does the TB3 black wireless version needs a battery for the controller?
Response From eMotimo: The TB3 does not have an internal battery. We have a couple of battery options in our Accessories section of our store. Additionally, you can find information on the powering your TB3 out here - http://www.emotimo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=96 All TB3's comes with an AC Adapter that works in the US. International customers can buy an AC adapter from our store that will work for their plug and voltage type.
7/3/2013 -- Can the TB3 control bulb ramping? I use this currently for time lapse with a Promote controller- would the TB3 handle this . . .
Response From eMotimo: The TB3 doesn't have a bulb ramping mode yet. We are currently working on using the I/O port to listen to DSLR's that have PC ports (most pro canons, and others with Flash PC port adapters). If using Promote, or other intervolometers, you would trigger your cam from the Promote and split the PC signal so that TB3 understands when to move. In the future we may integrate a basic bulb ramping workflow.
6/29/2013 -- what voltage does the AC power the TB3 at? If I want to power the TB3 from mains power in australia - 240V I might need a . . .
Response From eMotimo: The TB3 uses 12volts DC into the side of box. The TB3 ships with an AC adapter that works in the US> You can order up an international AC adapter from us with the right plugs. Look for these under our accessories.
