GigaPan is introducing several new EPIC robotic, panorama mounts today. If you aren’t familiar with GigaPan products, these mounts allow you to make massive multi-gigapixel images with your camera by capturing literally hundreds of images that are stitched together in post-processing software. Popular images shot with the GigaPan system include the Obama Inauguration and the 2009 World Series.
The GigaPan EPIC and EPIC 100 are slated for use with point and shoot cameras and smaller DSLRs. Both models are currently available at gigapansystems.com for $349 and $449, respectively.
The GigaPan EPIC Pro is designed to work with DSLRs are larger lenses with up to a 10 lbs combined weight. The EPIC Pro should be available in April 2010 for $895 from gigapansystems.com.
All GigaPan EPIC models come with GigaPan Stitch, which “automatically combines and blends hundreds of photos into one seamless gigapixel panorama, then uploads it to GigaPan.com, where users can zoom into the detail, discover, explore and share.”
