    Notes: This is the first GigaPan I have taken with a 300mm prime lens. The 70-300mm zoom lens was not producing clear images, so I bought an old Nikkor 300mm f/4.5 AI-s on ebay. It weighs 2.6 pounds, but the Epic 100 handles it fine with some modifications. The lens vignettes at all but the smallest aperture (as does the 70-300mm), and makes images with dull colors, so Lightroom was used to devignette those frames with sky or water, and for all frames I changed exposure ( 0.33 stop), vibrance ( 20), and saturation ( 20). The NEF images were taken at f/16, 1/60 second, ISO 200, Vivid, and focused a hair this side of infinity. Equivalent focal length is 450 mm.
