I am new to this,
I want to buy Gigapan Product to take high quality pictures of streets from top of the building or from mountain. Faces of the people or even car plate’s numbers must be shown very clearly.

Can you please advise me what type of equipments and software I have to buy?

Please not that I mean by equipments everything including cameras and accessories

You will need a Gigapan Epic Pro
a good tripod (i use manfrotto)
a good head (i use manfrotto)
a good camera (i use D300s)
a good lens (i use Nikkor 70/200 2.8f VR)
a good TC (i use Nikkor 2X III)
a lot of time to learn (this take me arround 3 months to use perfect all the equipment)

I recomend pelican case to translate the gigapan head or the National Geographic’s backpack.
