Embedded computer

The GigaPan EPIC Pro has an embedded computer with LCD screen of four lines. It is very practical as it doesn't require a laptop to be used. Once set, the embedded computer will control the entire shooting sequence from the first picture to the last, by rotating and tilting the head and automatically triggering the camera.

Reliable

Gigapixel photography requires the use of powerful lenses. Any vibration can increase the risk of making your shots blurry. You should take care of two things: on the one hand, the mount needs to be sufficiently stable, and on the other hand the camera and lens have to be well positioned according to its center of gravity. The EPIC Pro is composed of a single non-detachable unit offering a good compromise between size / stability / weight to make gigapixel shots.

Multiple possibilities

GigaPan EPIC Pro not only enables you to shoot a great quantity of images in the goal of creating gigapixel panoramas, it also lets you automate the shooting for a 360° virtual tour (attention: the tilt range is -65°/+90° to avoid that the lens bumps into the head), or to automate bracketed shotsin order to create HDR images.


American Photo Editor's Choice

"Once only a fiction in the movies, the concept of a digital image with practically infinite detail has become a reality, courtesy of GigaPan motorized camera mounts. Derived from NASA imaging technology, these systems precisely automate the process of shooting dozens or even hundreds of separate frames that, when stitched together in software, create gigapixel-size (1000-megapixel-plus) images."

Popular Photography Award

"We like a big picture, and with the GigaPan you can make really big pictures. Essentially a smart, robotic version of a panoramic tripod head, it shoots and stitches giant multishot images. The original version, made famous by that super-high-resolution photo of President Obama’s inauguration, could hold only a compact, but this one handles a DSLR and lens combo weighing up to 10 pounds."

Kolor advices you

Once the shooting with the GigaPan EPIC Pro is finished, the images have to be stitched together. Then, if you want to publish your panorama on the Internet, you need to make it interactive and save it in a format compatible with a viewing on the Internet:

Stitching of the images

GigaPan Stitch software is shipped with the camera mount, but we advice you to use Autopano Pro or Autopano Giga software, that both include a dedicated GigaPan import module that guarantees the right positionning of the images and the stitching quality.

Interactivity

To make your panorama interactive and to be able to publish it online, we advice you to use Panotour Pro software. Designed for the creation of 360-degree virtual tours, this application also handles gigapixel panoramas. You can even link together gigapixel panoramas with embedded 360-degree virtual tours, add sound, videos, animations and many other features.

Make the most of your gigapixel shootings with these two software applications.
