Thanks for your nice comments. I've never
changed my camera batteries in the middle of a
GigaPan. On my version of the GigaPan robot (the
beta version), you can pause the robot by pressing
the "X" button and resume by pressing
the "OK" button. I'd try to pause in
some insignificant part of the panorama (sky,
water, etc) so that if the alignment isn't
quite perfect when you reattach the camera, the
stitcher software may have an easier time matching

amazing picture. how do you change batteries, and
restart during a really large gigapan without
loosing the pictures position ? i have canon
sx210is' and to change the batteries i have to
dismount the camera from the gigapan.
nathanl - Thanks for your comments and interest in
Amazingly detailed a large gigapan. Like it alot!
In the beginning of the TV show, "MONK",
there is a short video taken from the same spot
that I took this gigapan.
A gigapan showing the print of this gigapan is at:
I'll try a gigapan of the print in the next
few days. Another unexpected feature of the SX
110: I was able to take a 754 picture gigapan
without running down the batteries. I used Sanyo
HR6 2000 mAh rechargeable batteries. The panorama
wasn't very interesting, so it's not a
public file. The point was to see how easy it
would be to pause, change batteries, and restart
during a really large gigapan. Apparently, I can
get close to 1000 pictures without changing
You should take a GigaPan of the print to let us
see how good it looks. Also, FYI I bought a SX110
based on this GigaPan as well as some of
Zoltan's work. An amazing camera for the price
We made a 16" x 69" print of the left
end of the panorama - the part with the bridge and
downtown SF - with an Epson 4880 printer, mounted
it on 1/4" foam board and made a frame for
it. It's my first attempt at a large print
from a gigapan. It worked quite well.
You might want to take a look at the new Canon SX
200 IS - 12x optical zoom and some other nice
features, but a little more expensive. It looks
like it will fit on the gigapan robot.
I have been considering buying a second GigaPan
camera to use other than my Leica, one that has a
bit more zoom. This excellent panorama of yours
has focused my search towards the 110.
