I am. I have a powerpod and use V5.12 trackercam software to control
it. Works as advertised.

Mine's a pint of Stella BTW ;-)
Regards, Jeff.


Not many in the UK with this kit, one thing I have found though is it wont
allow me to change the FOV for the cam, have you found the same? Other than
that am pleased with the product and the software, they informed me they
plan to introduce mpeg streaming in a later version, sounds good. Pint of
Stella coming up ;o)

I can only change FOV with the zoom control but obviously that's not
ideal as the picture loses sharpness. I'm very pleased with the
powerpod, it throws my old VHS-C camcorder around with ease.

I have found that sometimes, especially if I have the powerpod
connected to a USB extension (fully shielded active type), the pod
sometimes makes spurious movements, usually a slow track left or
right. I will probably invest in a proper extension kit which should
cure that.



I don't get that, I run mine through one of these :-

Which then goes to a belkin usb2 powered hub, from the hub I run off 2 short
usb leads, one to the pod and one to the camera. I am informed by someone in
the know that you can get a really good extended usb cable by making them up
out of cat5 and rj45 to usb converters. I'm told (and this guy is a
networking and cabling specialist) that you can go about 50 metres by doing
this. Do a search for cat5 usb and it turns up a lot of hits.
