Review – GigaPan EPIC Pro: by Greg Downing

GigaPan LogoIn a recent post I introduced you to the new GigaPan EPIC Pro robotic camera mount used to create GigaPixel panoramas with your DSLR. Greg Downing from xRez Studio created a great video review of the EPIC Pro and was kind enough to share it with the CurrentPhotographer.com community. Be sure to check out Greg’s original post for more details about the EPIC Pro and to see the really cool panorama he created during the demo.

UPDATE: In the first review many people including Greg and his team, were disturbed by the lack of stablity of the gigapan. This updated video shows how things can be tightened up to improve the performance. This may break your warranty, so you should probably contact GigaPan before making the adjustment.

  1. Mine arrived – and will be sent right back. The build quality of the actual camera mount (lever, pin, etc.) is garbage. Mine fell apart in the box during shipping! I see you replaced it.  So I’ll give them the option – give me the better mount or take it back.
