My second take with the new Gigapan Epic 100 toy. Turned out quite nice if I do say so.
I do go into the deep end of the pool. 437 images and 2Gigapixel. Not what a beginner usually gets away with.
Also the unit held on pretty well. Even when I fitted the camera with it's 70-300 lens. It did not really like it, but it did it's duty very well.
This time I got lucky with the weather. A rainy day that changed into a sunny and clear afternoon. Only by the end of this shoot conditions changed and the occasional clouds made me wait a few extra minutes.
Two extra learning points for me.
Close the aperture even further. The bright light allows for that. And it would havegiven a better depth of field.
f10 was enough to get vignetting (fall off)away.
Don't try to get wife and daughter into the picture. In one place blending chopped of a leg. In the other it made may daughter completely disappear.
Anyway, it was great fun. Looking forward to the next project.
