      What is going on? Any satisfactory solution with the battery issues so far?
      Backers' minds would like to know!

      How's the development going? Been a while since an update...

      Thanks Kokobin.

      This London gigapixel project was a tremendously large project that went a couple of months over schedule. Unfortunately it has meant that Sphericam has not been able to receive as much attention from me in the past days as I would have liked. However, it is progressing. Parts are being ordered and assembly is going to be happening soon.

      Congrats on the Largest Photograph In The World record project.
      Saw you and your team featured on the BBC technology show Click yesterday.

      I will give an in-depth update soon: lenses, hardware, software. We have been very hard at work and are aiming to deliver an even better product than what we've shown.

      stay tuned!

      Congrats, Jeremy. You have done it!!!
      Thanks to all who made it possible.

      The camera stalk is not telescopic :) it is a fixed length. And then you can use an extension cable if you wish.

      Here is a "timelapse" - 4FPS speeded up to 25FPS.…

    14. Creator kokobin on December 24, 2012

      Is the length of the camera stalk adjustable or fixed?
      A link to a time-lapse video made with the Sphericam?

      HI Kokobin,

      Thanks for the support!

      I will talk to you about getting some kind of case sorted out for you. If you're concerned about that, I think we can sort something out. I also don't want you to break your precious camera :-)

      I am glad to be the one to put Sphericam over the top
      I wonder what a carry case would cost if not included in the price.
      It is an awful lot of investment to carry around without a dedicated case for protection or even while using.
