Promote Control can be paired with third-party panoramic motorized heads to create HDR, focused stacked, 360° HDR and even focus stacked HDR panoramas. For example, many users successfully work with a combination of the Promote Control and the Gigapan EPIC Pro motorized head.

"The two units work amazingly well together. You can actually tether the EPIC Pro to the Promote and then the Promote to the DSLR camera. This allows you set up some automations, that would ordinarily be very tricky to do, like an HDRI gigapixel, a focused stacked gigapixel, or even a focused stacked HDRI gigapixel.”

For more details on how the two devices work together see the tutorials below and read our blog post.

Promote Control can easily be integrated with dollies and motion control heads to create motion time-lapses and hyperlapses

Note: To connect the Promote Control to your dolly/pano head, you will need a cable from your device's manufacturer compatible with Canon Rebel cameras.

What Our Customers Are Saying…

Promote Control is a cool tool. I can get greater efficiency by shooting a wider exposure range with fewer exposures. That saves disk space and processing time on the computer, and wear and tear on the camera. Promote Control also lets me shoot brackets that my camera otherwise can't, giving me greater control over my final output.

Overall, I could not recommend this product enough. If you are remotely serious (get it... get it? :) ) about HDR photography, then you owe it to yourself to at least consider the Promote Control.

The Promote Control is the Rolls Royce of remote controls and highly interesting for HDR aficionados.
