When will Epic Pro be compatible with Sony’s A7r

I’d like to know as well. I bought the Gigapan Epic Pro when I used Canon. I just assumed that all the cables that came with it would work on Sony. Unfortunately as best as I can tell it doesn’t work with my (new) A7R.

Can anyone say for sure that the EpicPro won’t work with the Sony A7? I thought I had the right cable (a special cable that does work with other other hardware.) I can’t get a response from the Gigapan, so it looks like my fall back will be my Canon 7D.

Thoughts anyone?

with a bit of basic electronics knowledge and the info here:

it should be possible to buy a cheap wired release on ebay (for the multiconnector) and make a pigtail to convert one of the existing EPIC Pro cables to Sony.

I have an RX100 with the same connector and am planning to create a cable for it and the EPIC 100. As I’ll be dissecting a cable release for that project, I’ve ordered the extra parts to try it out on the EPIC Pro as a pigtail attached to a Canon cable. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

I have both the EPIC 100 and EPIC Pro solutions working. EPIC 100 is the more complicated because the voltage must be isolated. EPIC Pro has been tested with A7 as well.

I also want a cord for a7r2,
I get by at the moment using a wired remote and press the button when the pro stops moving before it moves to the next image place.

If the a7r2 uses the sony multiconnector (like micro usb but more pins), and if you’re comfortable with a bit of soldering and using a multimeter I can probably help you build the cable that you need. Contact me here: https://www.facebook.com/ImagesoftheUpstatecom/

Here are instructions for building a Sony Multiconnector cable (RX-100Mk2,3,4/A7, etc.) for the EPIC Pro.

These instructions assume some very basic knowledge of wiring and use of a multimeter to identify wires in a connector. USE OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND THE RESULTING CABLE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

One small hitch with the directions that I posted above. Standard commercial mini-USB cables do not use pin 4, so they do not have a lead for pin 4 in the cable. You will either have to cannibalize one of your EPIC Pro cables, or source a fully-wired Mini USB connector.
