Programmable Tripod Head. The Benro Polaris Astro Edition 3-Axis Smart Tripod Head is a programmable electric tripod head with an integrated camera interface controller.

Bluetooth Connectivity. You can use the integrated Bluetooth functionality to remotely control the Polaris Astro Edition, and to preview, review, and download files via the aforementioned app.
Power and Memory. The Polaris Astro Edition has a roughly 24-hour battery life, and you can charge it while you’re using it. There’s a microSD card slot to ensure that you don’t lose any of your captured images, and to help with quick editing. The Polaris can quickly render and display path-lapses, panoramas, and the like on your smartphone.
