GigaPan EPIC Pro
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
