I’ve been using my PPM for 3 weeks now, I must say I enjoy using the device, but there is one thing that bug me all the time…
IMO, the tripod mount is not designed properly (as compared to photographic equipment and others). The depth of the screw thread is too little/short, this make it impossible to properly/securely mount the PPM onto standard tripod mounting plate. The PPM will not make full contact with the plate mount even if the mount screw has gone all the way in.
To add on, the tripod mount (or screw hole) is not flush to the base of the mounting square. This make it really difficult to secure the PPM onto standard tripod.
Perhaps the next iteration of the PPM will address this.
Other issues observed:
- The projection is not aligned to the horizontal plane of the PPM. It’s somewhat tilted on my unit, 1 or 2 degree.
- The included tripod is usable, but the ball head is just bad… It’s too small, too short, too shaky. The ball head doesn’t allow the PPM to go vertical all the way (PPM will hit the legs of the tripod). I have to change the ball head to a taller, bigger one.
- The included mesh bag is too big IMO.
