Choose a unique point and move the lens so that the point is at the top of the lens. Then move the lens gogapan that the unique point is at the bottom of the lens. Then the EPIC Pro knows the vertical angles and calculates the horizontal angle of view using the aspect ratio.

Move Camera — Moves the camera and lens from left to right and up and down using the directional keys. It is important to allow enough time for the camera to process the current photograph and move the data to flash memory. This is the most likely reason the camera would miss a photograph.

The external trigger setting is designed to work with a Canon E3 style remote shutter that is inserted in the EPIC Pro remote trigger port. Mult Shutter — Allows you to take multiple pictures at each position during the capture of your panorama.

You can take up to 20 pictures at each position. Pic Order — Allows for different patterns of capturing the individual photographs such as column-right, column-left, row — down, row — up.

Battery Status – Tells you what the voltage level of the batteries is. A voltage of 7. A voltage of around 7 volts means your batteries will not be able to operate the EPIC Pro for much longer.

You can set the value to Time per pic, 0. This allows you to fine tune the amount of time needed to achieve good focus separately from gogapan much time your camera needs to sustainably write images to the Flash memory without filing up the cameras buffer memory.

EPIC Pro Introduction

It is recommended that you use the ‘Slow’ setting when using large lenses to reduce the settling time after accelerating and de-accelerating a large lens.

Motors Rigid – The ‘On’ setting will help hold large lenses in position when you are not in a ‘Move’ mode, or actively capturing a panorama. This is especially important for large and longer focal length lenses. Backlight Mode This setting allows you to choose when the back light is in use. Aspect Ratio The options are 1: The default setting is 4: Increasing this value may help give the stitch software more common area to find control points.

Quick Menu Setup – Allows you to change which four items will be accessible from the quick menu. The quick menu is accessed by pressing and holding the left X button for one to two seconds.

Previous — Repeat the previous panorama. Your panorama will be lost unless you use the ‘Save Previous’ option before turning the power off.

Test Shutter – Allows you to optionally test your settings such as single shutter, multiple shutters, exposure bracketing, and or mirror flip-up before starting the capture of a panorama. To set, Select ‘Test Shutter’ from the menu. It is important to allow enough time for the camera to process the current photograph and copy the data from the cameras buffer memory to the flash memory.


This is the most likely reason that the camera would miss a photograph.

Some cameras will light an LED while the photograph is being transferred. Mult Picture – This was previously called ‘Mult Shutter’ in firmware version This setting allows you to set the number of photographs that will be triggered per position. If you have ‘Brackets’ enabled, ‘Mult Picture’ will repeat the bracket sequence per the number of photographs you selected when setting ‘Mult Picture’.

Brackets – Exposure bracketing of 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9 photographs for HDR images by working with the camera AEB automatic exposure bracketing firmware. Use the mxnual Step’ setting to set the separation of exposure values to 0.

You can set the exposure value separation to 0. One exposure value separation is equivalent to doubling or halving the shutter speed when you keep the aperture and ISO constant. The first assertion of the signal will flip manuzl the mirror. If you are using a 50mm or mm prime lens you might disable manyal Lockup’.

Lockup-time – Is used in conjunction with ‘Mirror Lockup’ and your camera’s mirror lockup settings. You may set a lockup-time of 0.

Shutter Teach – This setting is an alternative manula of defining exposure bracketing timing or ggigapan pictures where you “teach” the EPIC Pro how you would like the camera’s shutter button to be pressed. The Pro will then remember how many times you want the shutter to be pressed as well as the extra timing between shutters. End the sequence with the OK button. You may use a timer of zero seconds to 99 days or an external trigger to change when each panorama in the sequence is taken.

When you choose the timer, the value includes the time to capture the panorama. Shutter Length – The amount of time that the focus and shutter signals are asserted Exposure bulb0. You are able to incrementally increase ggiapan amount of time that the focus signal is asserted when using autofocus.

You are able to quickly find a gigzpan between allowing for enough time for your camera’s autofocus subsystem to achieve good focus and not requiring too much time to capture the entire gigapan.

You can also use the bulb so that the remote shutter controls the exposure time when mamual autofocus or doing exposure bracketing to capture HDR images. It is recommended that you use the gigqpan setting when using large lenses to reduce the settling time after accelerating and de- accelerating a large lens. Motors Rigid The ‘On’ setting will help hold large lenses in position when you are not in a ‘Move’ mode, or actively capturing a panorama.

Bracket Delay – Time delay added to allow your camera to not overflow its memory buffer while capturing exposure brackets for HDR images. Backlight Mode – This setting allows you to choose when the backlight is in use.

Aspect Ratio – The ratio of the width to height of the camera system. The default setting is 3 units wide by 2 units high which is the default setting for standard DSLR cameras. You can set ‘Aspect Ratio’ to the following values of width to height 1: Last Pic Hold – Continues to assert the shutter signal after the last photograph in the panorama so that a camera does not power down.
