GigaPan EPIC 100 Overview

The EPIC 100 Robotic Camera Mount from GigaPan is a unique robotic camera mount that empowers most large point & shoot and small digital SLR cameras with the ability to capture gigapixel images. It is easy to use and remarkably efficient. Simply set the corners of the panorama you want to capture using the LCD interface.

The built-in software works out how many photos your camera will need to take, hundreds or even thousands. Then the EPIC 100 begins snapping the photos, automatically organizing them in overlapping rows and columns.

The following equipment is needed for using the EPIC 100:

  • Tripod (capable of supporting the EPIC 100 and your camera)
  • 6 x AA NiMH batteries (rechargeable ones are preferred)
  • Digital camera
  • Memory card (4GB is recommended)
If you're taking a panorama with fixed focus and fast shutter, you can capture over 20 pictures per minute. Indoor or night-time shots require longer shutter times and can take longer. Using the 2-second camera delay allows the GigaPan Imager and tripod to settle before each picture.
The GigaPan Imager can be used in snow, rain and wind. Keep the Imager and camera as dry as possible, and be sure to secure your tripod so it will not tip over if bumped or pushed by wind.
An easily adjustable metal plate accommodates larger cameras.
The EPIC 100 provides elevation of the camera plate from the imager body 1.3" (33.5 mm) to allow a greater range for camera pitch (tilt or elevation).
Gearing for the pitch is 15:1 which allows greater holding torque and fine precision movements.
The EPIC 100 supports 360° panoramic and 60-90° tilt ranges-of-motion.
A Start/Delay function enables a timer delay before each panorama capture begins. The timer can be set to 1, 15, 30, 60, 120, or 300 seconds. Not only does this provide time for the equipment to stop its vibrations, it gives you the option to include yourself in the panorama.
The EPIC 100 has a multiple shutter which allows the GigaPan unit to take up to 9 captures at each image location.
The EPIC 100 supports shutter actuation through the remote shutter port that is available on most DSLR cameras. A separate cable (not included) is required depending on camera make/model.
The Pause and Scroll functions give you the ability to recapture a specific photo or photos in the sequence.
The EPIC 100 moves your camera with precise incremental movements of 0.36°.
The device is robust and durable.
A stainless steel mounting arm minimizes flex and vibrations.
It is easy to navigate the EPIC 100's menu with a highly visible LCD screen.
The built-in bubble level lets you quickly position the EPIC 100 for a perfect horizon.
Scale and marking features enable repeatable adjustment.
The anti-slip camera pad keeps your equipment from slipping out of position.
It features a sleek design with strong cast-aluminum chassis.
The Epic has a battery tray that is easy to remove and refill.
The controllable backlit screen can be set to "On" or "Auto" for low-light conditions, or "Off" for daylight conditions, minimizing battery drain.

What is the longest a lens could be and be able to properly match up the nodal point to the front optic?
Asked by: Brad
The Epic 100 is for point & shoot cameras and is not able to support the weight of an interchangeable lens camera. You would need the Epic Pro version and will support up to lbs. So a camera and lens combo that is less than 10lbs. will work.

Hey guys, I'm wondering if Canon 5D Mark III would fit on this? Also, can one do 360 panorama, or is it only for 180 panorama and stitching. Thanks
Asked by: Reza
No, the GigaPan EPIC 100 Robotic Camera Mount is not designed for use with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera. For use with the 5D Mark III, you would need the larger GigaPan EPIC PRO Robotic Camera Mount, B&H # GIEPICPRO. Yes, it is possible to create 360 panoramic images with the GigaPan products.

Is it compatible with the Sony A7 cameras?
Asked by: Alexandre

Answered by: Kyle J.

If this one is compatible with A7RII, what are the SONY FE lens can be used? can any of these lens: 16-35mm GM f2.8, 24-70mm f2.8 GM, 70-200mm f2.8 GM
Asked by: Khoivu
I have used the Olympus E-M5 with Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8 on the Epic 100, just within the weight limit.The weight limit is stated for the Gigapan products. Check the weight of the camera body and the lens you want to use. Those Sony GM pro lenses are too heavy for the Epic 100, you need the Epic Pro.
