Hercules Basic Package
Hercules Basic Package: This Basic package offered by Rollocam is the most economical way to get you started with the Hercules. Included in this package is the drive unit, a straight wheel bracket, a small wheel set (base wheel and bracket wheels), thumb screws, universal screw, wrench key, and a soft carrying pouch. Note: Purchasing additional accessories separately is highly recommended (i.e. cheese plate, cell phone clamp).
This basic package allows the user to program the Hercules to move in a straight line to create that subtle dolly shot, time lapse, or stop motion video.
The drive unit can be set to operate in either direction (left or right) and in three different modes.
Continuous move - roll in both directions at 5 different speeds
Time lapse - indexes (move, pause, move) at 5 index distances and 5 time settings
Stop motion - use a magnet to command to move one step at a time
(For more information download instructional manual under support page)
The drive wheel can be swapped out between a small drive wheel and a large drive wheel to increase the speed range if needed. All drive units are equipped with an integrated magnet sensor that will trigger direction change automatically when used with the magnets (included) and the slider track (purchase separately).
In the stop motion setting, the Hercules will advance a preset distance every time a magnet is in close proximity to the sensor. In this mode, the user commands the Hercules to index whenever he chooses.
Programmable settings: (when using small wheel set)
Continuous speed = .1, .2, .3, .4, .5 inch/sec. (2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5 mm/sec.)
Index increment (time lapse) = .01, .025, .05, .125, .25 in (.3, .6, 1.3, 3, 6.3mm)
Cycle time (time lapse) = 1, 5, 10, 30, 60 sec.
For large wheel set, the speed and index increment is approximately double.
