I have the original camera slider that came with a brain shield mounted on an arduino. Looking to upgrade to v2. Can I assume that I don’t need to replace the arduino/brain shield combo with a Devia board?

Thanks!!

I did it. It works but but the rotation of the camera is distorted because the dimension of the plate and the drive pulley are different in the new version … I think that this problem can be corrected by a simple modification of the code. For now, JJRobots still has not confirmed the release of a modified code for the old system (Leonardo + brain).

Thanks Berlib for the update, that is good to know.

You’re welcome… The problem is that I’m not able myself to make this modification of the code… I am disappointed by the lack of reaction from JJRobots … who had accustomed us to quick responses in the past! 🙁

I was holding out for the same option myself, i.e. retain the original control board and much of the original gearing and turntable, but definitely replace the two round rails with a 20×40 extrusion and design a carriage and new ends to mate the old with the new. The round bars flex too much and because they are round, they can rotate just enough in the ends that I have never had a video that didn’t have waviness or jitter. They are like those rope bridges over canyons like you see in Indiana Jones movies. 🙂
