Canon's app-controlled Pan Table lets you create pro-level effects for $100

We don't typically pay much attention to camera accessories, but this one's definitely piqued our interest. The Pan Table, available later this quarter from Canon, pairs with the company's Android and iOS Camera Access Plus apps to enable some pretty cool panning effects. After mounting your camcorder, you can move the platform 200 degrees to the left and right as you shoot video. It can also tilt up and down by 20 degrees, but you'll need to make those adjustments manually. Unfortunately, Canon is unable to share pictures of the device at this time, but once the Pan Table does materialize, it will operate for up to nine hours on a pair of AA batteries, or you can power it indefinitely using the bundled AC adapter. It ships in March for $100.
