Offering motion to timelapse photography provides a dynamic element that is visually interesting. There are several methods of accomplishing this. Incorporating some motion in production with keyframes and panning, or working with a device to physically move the camera slowly and gradually during the time lapse sequence.
If you are looking for a real solution we cast about for a decent product. Cafago e-shop carries the Andoer MA2 Electric Panoramic Tripod head which looked interesting. Built-in 1800mAh battery which can last up to 4 hours and through the wireless receiver, the ball head can control camera shutter and take photos.
The Andoer MA2 Electric Panoramic Ball Head Motorized Tripod is solidly constructed and well made. The rotational platform looked to be fairly solid, good enough to support a small to mid-sized camera.
