The Public Lab Store Starter kits for DIY environmental science

Titan 2 Rig


This kit builds a Titan 2 Rig which holds two small cameras pointed in the same direction for vegetation analysis (with normal and infrared cameras) or other applications for dual cameras. The raised lips at the back of the camera platforms allow both cameras (not included) to be easily attached and immediately aligned for capturing the same scene. The tilting tray allows oblique photography as well as vertical mapping photos. All camera controls and the LCD are always accessible. Twelve brackets allow quick attachment and removal of protective legs and bumpers (included). A single-camera tray is also included for converting the rig to function as a Redstone Rig for flying a lightweight rig with one camera. The Titan 2 Rig is easily attached to either a Picavet or Pendulum suspension, and requires one or the other for optimal operation. See the Titan 2 Rig Guide for more information.


To trigger the shutters of two CHDK-enabled PowerShots simultaneously, a simple timer can be mounted on the Titan 2 Rig.

Weight (with 4 tubing legs): 208 grams

Community Science Forum: Frac Sand

Our quarterly print publication has a new name, and a wider scope. It's now called the Community Science Forum. This issue is focused on frac sand, and in particular on the work being done in western Wisconsin by community groups concerned about air and water quality impacts of mining operations there.

Usually $5, we're offering the new issue at an experimental price of $2 plus shipping.
