The Gigapan Epic is Specifically designed to capture gigapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. panoramas with compact digital cameras.
The Gigapan Epic's features include the following:


    -    360 degree panoramic range-of-motion and 60/90 degree tilt range-of-motion
    -    Pause and Scroll Function gives you the ability to recapture a specific photo or photos in the sequence.
    -    Repeatable panoramas - you can repeat the last panorama sequence, same photos, same order.
    -    Adjustable exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image.s - time between exposures is adjustable.
    -    Precision incremental movement/resolution of 0.36 degrees
    -    Stainless steel mounting arm minimizes flex and vibration
    -    Simple user-interface, consisting of: on/off/ok button, cancel button and four directional buttons.
    -    Easy to navigate menu with highly visible LCD screen
    -    Bubble level onboard, for quick set-up
    -    Easy camera mount
    -    Simple camera adjustment for optimal positioning of the focal/nodal point in the fore/aft, up/down and left/right directions, allowing the use of different cameras.
    -    Scale and marking features enable repeatable adjustment
    -    Anti-slip camera pad
    -    Power supply requirements: (6) AA Batteries (Alkaline, Rechargeable NiMH, Lithium, etc...)
