The GigaPan Epic is a robotic mount that helps photographers create detailed panoramas.  David Bergman used his Canon G10 and the GigaPan Imager to take a panoramic photo of Obama’s inaugural address.  The GigaPan Epic and Stitcher software is available for $379.  And the GigaPan Epic 100 will be available for $49.  The Epic is very easy to use.  First you connect a digital camera to the Epic.  After that a small roboto mount automates the picture taking process.  And then hundreds of thousands of images are connect together using the Stitcher software.

“Today we are offering the general public breakthrough high-resolution imaging technology that is the result of years of research by scientists at NASA and Carnegie Mellon University,” stated Henry Hillman Jr., Founder, President and CEO of GigaPan Systems. “The potential applications for the Epic are limitless. The GigaPan.org site already features more than 10,000 panoramas, and our beta users have taken fantastic panoramas not only of President Obama’s Inauguration, but of Yankee Stadium, Chicago skylines, Hawaiian landscapes and thousands of extraordinary images.”

Many of the panoramic photos available on http://www.explorechicago.org were taken with the use of GigaPan.  The pictures include the Chicago skyline, Millenium Park, and the CME Group Financial Trading Floor.
