NOT Panoramic use of Gigapan

Unfortunately I am not YET a Gigapan user. So my question may be silly:
Is it possible to use Gigapan instead of a regular digital camera (with its well-known limited resolution) to produce highest resolution pictures if I have enough time as in stills eg.? I don’t mean panos, but regular pics? How do I define the spatial limitations and the number of pictures to be taken in a shot?
Thnx a lot

You can do any size and dimension image.

The limiting resolution is determined by the angle of any single image, and the overall view is determined by how many of those individual images are stitched together.

Look at micro gigapans to see one extreme limit of this. Microscopic images combined to get amazing definition.

Using a macro lens or a long lens to take a “normal” subject in many small pieces would accomplish what you’re after.

You can create still life compositions, including those that need multiple focal planes, or exposure bracketing.
Here are links to a few of my own “creations”. Best of luck.

Richard, those are great. What’d you use for focal stacking.
