We recently installed a 12x SDI camera for live streaming our worship services. We are using an HC-JOY-G3 to control the cameras. I am sure our operation skills will improve with practice, but have found it difficult to control with precision or fluidity.
Some of this could be addressed by allowing for simultaneous movements in pan, tilt and zoom. I believe this was mentioned in another post on this site, so I would echo the value of this feature.
However, more important will be greater fidelity in the PTZ controls. Here are a few observations/suggestions:
Thank you for your feedback, it does echo some of the faults we have been hearing about with the joystick. It was designed to be an affordable option over having every bell and whistle available. We do have a new joystick in the works that should address some of these issues, if not all of them. But you are correct, the HC JOY G3 does leave a bit to be desired for doing live movements, if was designed more with the cost in mind and doing what was needed to set up camera shots.
Is there PTZ speed control settings that can slow down motion when using control in Vimeo Studio 6....its zippy now even on the slow settings. Thanks
The Pan, Tilt, and Zoom speeds are set through the control interface that is being used to control the cameras. This is because the Pan, Tilt, and Zoom commands include the speed value within the command. So there are not global speed settings you can adjust on the camera itself. The speed would need to be set in the studio 6 software. If changing the speed in that software does not seem to be taking effect, I would make sure that the camera has the latest firmware. You can download the latest firmware from our Firmware finder.
As an alternative to the control in the Studio 6 software, you could try using our free camera control app instead.
