The ORACLE Control System is the core of our elektraDRIVE line of products. Almost two years in development, we set out to make the ultimate multi-function controller for our line of electronic products. The ORACLE Control System is interchangeable between multiple products, like our REVOLUTION Pan / Tilt System, elektraDRIVE motor pods for the CineSlider & Pocket Dolly, and other products to be released in the future.

ORACLE Firmware Change Log

3.02SL

Update that disabled the joystick while in camera mode to prevent any unwanted movement


3.01SL


-Updated timer display.  Reads hours, minutes, seconds now.

-Added “cruise control” feature to toggle holding of joystick speed.

-Improved SmartLapse® record speed and playback accuracy.

-Stop Motion now allows you to take as many pictures as you need before moving on to the next point.

-Simple mode now allows you to make a move while in the set up menu

-Added MENU to finish live recording.

-Added splash screen to say saved after done with a recording.

-Corrected an occasional glitch that could cause SmartLapse® playback to lurch at the beginning.

-Added timer to Intervalometer Only.

-Incorporated Shoot-Move-Shoot & Continuous Intervalometer into Advanced mode

-Added "saved" splash screen after recording to confirm the recording was saved.

-Overall better flow/more intuitive menu design that allows scrolling through menus by moving the joystick left/right.


2.06.8SL

Made selecting smart and live record through the menu system work the same as pressing the button direct. 

FIXED. A  variable was not getting updated correctly. Playbacks would have wrong pulse format depending if slider or head operation mode. 

Enabled Simple Mode  in menu and change default power from 40 to 60.

In time lapse while in head operation, turned on braking between pulses.


2.06.7SL

Added a delay timer to the beginning of smart lapse and advanced play.

Changed the timing of scrolling and worked some on time scale routine to normalize scrolling.


2.06.6SL

Fixed a bug in the timing when a remainder sometimes added time to the shoot move shoot pulses and to the single pulse modes instead of adding to the off time on the changed pulse setup of 2.06.5SL.



2.06.5SL

Changed smart lapse head mode to brake during off time instead of running low energy to reduce mismatch on play back.

Synced smart move pulses to be more consistent each pass.

Shortened pulses in head & slider modes to give finer control.

Made delay of off time in smart lapse vary with the maximum power setting to allow faster records of the same amount of record points.


2.06.4SL

Fixed a variable setup that kept tilt/axis2  from moving  in advanced motion control when continuous mode for camera was selected.

2.06.2SL

New menu layout

Battery meter for ORACLE battery

Assignable joystick controls

Built-in intervalometer with stand alone, continuous motion, shoot-move-shoot, & stop motion modes (requires Camera Control Module accessory).

 Intervalometer capable of 0.25 sec exposure time for fast shutter (if camera can support the frame rate)

 2nd axis control while in "Slider" Mode. Control slide and one axis of Revolution Head or Turntable with one ORACLE controller.


Technical Specs
  • The new SmartLapse™ mode on the ORACLE allows for easy WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) type timelapse setups. A path is recorded, the duration the timelapse should take is set, then your timelapse will run following the path recorded, over the duration set. With SmartLapse™ you are no longer limited to single direction / axis timelapse movements!

  • All ORACLE Controllers are now shipping with the SmartLapse™ software installed (as of firmware v2.03SL) . If the firmware version on your controller is not v3.02 SL, you can have your ORACLE Controller upgraded by ordering the upgrade below. 


  • ORACLE SmartLapse Upgrade Order


    There will be no charge to install the upgrade on ORACLE Controllers other than shipping.

Great device January 10, 2014
Reviewer: Lauren Cohn from Winter Garden, FL United States  
This is a great device, but with the latest firmware, the "smart lapse" is not very well documented nor are some of the other features. Maybe Phillip Bloom can do an update video series, as the functions, even on the Kessler website are obscure. The price is also a bit steep, but I can live with that for quality gear.
