    Default Radian and Astro - Panning time lapse devices on Kickstarter

    Is anybody backing either of these projects? They are both very very similar in concept and execution and I'm in a dilemma as to which to back.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either. Functions are almost the same. I'll pick the Astro cause it looks nicer..

    Radian need to operate with an smart phone devices, able to do tilt and pan when using two of Radian.

    only left $150 pledge and above,


    Astro seem very easy to use, can operate with out smart phone devices but have not tested the payload when using on tilt position.

    only left $180 pledge and above,

    I may consider Astro tilt and pan package.

    That was what attracted me to Astro as well, the ability to use it without a smart phone but Radian is cheaper.

    Radian can run using internal battery or USB powered.
    Astro uses 2x AA batteries.

    If shooting in cold conditions, I suppose Radian will be better as you could always attached heat packs to the external powerbank to maximize battery longevity.

    Wait a min, this is a necro'ed thread.
