      Comments about GigaPan EPIC Robotic Camera Mount:

      Read the quick start guide, and you will have no problems. My first panorama was perfect, and has opened a new area of photography for me. I have used the various software stitching programs to make panoramas, but I found them too labor intensive and fussy to regularly make panoramas. EPIC removed those obstacles, and now panoramas grace our photo books. I'm so pleased with this that I may upgrade to the DSLR version. Note that I use this with the Leica D-LUX 5, which while not listed as a compatible cameras, works just fine.

        Works as advertized. Requires a little time to set up the defaults, but once this is done no problems.

        Comments about GigaPan EPIC Robotic Camera Mount:

        I have had one for a couple of years now and kick myself for not packing it on more trips. The ability of this little robot to pan and capture makes the final panorama assembly seamless.
        The level of photographic detail available is limited only by your cameras best efforts - being able to zoom in on a panorama and see the finest details is amazing!!
        I wish the camera options were a little wider. They have now come up with new Gigapan models to hold larger and DSR cameras. I was able to use an extension to fit a "non compatible" camera to the mount.
        The unit is not real compact or light - but it is built for the task and very solid build (mine has a metal case - now plastic so I cannot vouch for that.
        The stitching software is fast and easy.
        Be sure to check out the gigapan site to see thousands of panoramas. Also there is an icon on Google earth that allows you to view pans that have been uploaded scatted around the globe (really cool).
