Gigapan Experiments

This afternoon I started work on a future episode of All About the Gear on which I’ll review the Gigapan EPIC Pro. Here’s my second attempt at a Gigapan image of the Golden Gate Bridge. Expand to full screen, zoom into it and pan. Check it out. (Sorry it’s Flash, but that’s how the Gigapan viewer works.)

32 images in a 4×8 grid. Shot with a Nikon D800E at ISO 100. 70-200mm f/2.8. 1/400 second, f/8, 200mm. Stitched in the Gigapan Stitch app. The limitation to the resolution here isn’t the 36MP camera, the lens or the application. It’s due to atmospheric aberration. A problem with long-distance shots at 6pm on a warm September day.

  1. Cool, Doug. You got me to install the latest Flash so now I can actually see so many of the images and videos that have been blanked out black. Gary and I zoomed in and started naming the various buildings. Zoomed way in the buildings get to a very cool impressionistic style. Could be some fun crops in there. Thanks for sharing this, Doug!
