Gi­ga­Pan EPIC Pro

NPhoto - - Test Team -

If you thought the D800’s 36-megapixel res­o­lu­tion was high, the EPIC Pro makes it look pos­i­tively pal­try: this is all about cre­at­ing huge panora­mas that run into the gi­gapix­els.

For­tu­nately you won’t have to mess about with di­als and slid­ers to take the hun­dreds of pho­tos needed to com­pile such an im­mense im­age, as the EPIC Pro is an au­to­mated elec­tronic plat­form and in­cludes the nec­es­sary re­mote shut­ter re­lease ca­bles. All you need to do to shoot your panorama is set up where you want the pan to start and fin­ish, and pro­gram your lens’ field of view.

The process is sur­pris­ingly quick and you get com­ple­men­tary stitch­ing soft­ware thrown in too, but a pow­er­ful com­puter is a must. Once your shots have been stitched to­gether, sit back, zoom in and savour the de­tail.

The most ex­pen­sive piece of kit on test, the EPIC Pro takes care of pretty much ev­ery­thing for you
