Are technocranes capable of doing slow smooth movements to do time-lapse shots?

How slow ? with a stabilised head slow moves are possible - never had to do one so I am not sure what the slowest would be.

I don't think thats possible with the Techno. I maybe wrong, but at speeds like that (less than 3 inches a minute with a techno 50) I think it would be the wrong tool for the job.

That sounds like an expensive time-lapse shot.

Your best bet would be a repeatable Techno. Lookup Pacific Motion or Technodolly.
