HI
I
am considering two servo motors for camera movment, I want to make
sure they turn at least 180 degrees.
These are the ones -

Is there any way to find out if they move by 180 degrees? Is there any other good servos that you guys have used that move atleast 180 degrees?

Thanks a ton

most servo motrs easily offer 240 degrees of range so i belive you should have no problem.

I've used Hitec HS422 in my project. It's turns more than 180 deg. (~200 deg.)

Just a question, approx. how much torque do you need? The one in the first link is a heavy duty servo (price too high 49$) I think you won't require that much torque for simply scanning a camera. Hitech HS422 cost u abt 12$ (www.towerhobbies.com) and will give the same torque as the one in the second link.
