Topic: Gigapan Brand / The Mens Overboots fashion

Footwear have worked a long exciting historical past. Even in the past people noticed a requirement to shield either their toes or their better quality footwear, obviously there has to be Mens Overboots. Footwear certainly have handled almost everyone, specifically in the 2oth century. Who doesn’t keep in mind the colorful rubber shoes used by children it appears to be every single exactly where. Footwear regardless of whether for job or design provide their function.

The whole the outdoors of your boot is to protect or protect from fluid attack or surfaces that can do harm to the ft . or foot. If you are a man that works in a career that spills, is drenched or can have your feet around unpleasant information, consequently, men’s above shoes are necessary. Most Mens Overboots USA are made of rubberized substances. Men’s around boot styles are not only for operate but additionally make an appearance inside the liesure along with the trend markets.

Of some stylish high rubberized boot styles, the people fishermen dress in,. That may be when considering men’s over footwear the photo which may pop into your head. That model of that men’s above boot goes around anything from ft . to nearly the midsection and may provide an accompanying couple of suspenders to ensure they are hoisted. These same men’s above shoes, descriptively marked hip waders is visible in such professions as sewer upkeep or perhaps a cranberry bog user.

The Best Mens Overboots strategy carries a style counter aspect. The sneaker protect protects the gown boots from the fashion conscious gentleman. Men’s around shoes can discover beginnings in Uk tradition. A guys above boot’s main function is usually to, as the name shows, review the mans footwear or boot to protect it from mud, precipitation and soil dog dung, effectively almost everything you do not desire to sully your excellent shoes or boots.

Men’s around boot styles can be a item of the strategy has its beginnings in antiquity. Boots, the building blocks in the men’s above boot idea, can be obtained from pretty much every documented civilization. The Original Agora Museum of Athens has a pair of shoes, whilst not men’s more than boots, that are old to become some where by within the community of of 900-800 BC.

Contemporary boot styles, particularly men’s over shoes are actually made of much more comfortable materials including natural leather or rubber. The original shoes with the museum in contrast to the current men’s over publication even so were made from terra cotta. The current functioning guy ought to be happy that contemporary boots, especially men’s around shoes will not be made of stone or clay any longer.

While many boots men put on are men’s above shoes, some of them without a doubt usually are not less than useful. When males aren’t donning above boot styles, they may be naturally showing off various other form of boot. Should you be a boot fan, your decision aside from mens above shoes or function shoes for the day may well be a nifty set of bespoken cowboy boot. Footwear have made a lot more adaptations and morphs other than the men’s above boot.

Today’s boot food list now delivers moon boot styles, combat footwear, rain footwear along with men’s over shoes. What a spark of brilliance to the author of the initial boot. Boot styles started as animal skin to terra cotta in ancient times to men’s more than rainfall and shoes shoes manufactured from silicone in our time.

Topic: Gigapan Brand / Is it worth trying???

I have one of these, which works with the RX100 II : http://cart.payments.ebay.com/sc/add?ssPageName…

and I have previously built an EPIC 100 trigger cable for Panasonic cameras. Since I have the schematic from the Panasonic project and some extra parts, I’ve ordered another of the cable releases and will see if I can successfully make a Sony cable for EPIC 100.

No promises, but I’ll give it my best shot.

Topic: Gigapan Brand / Who is GigaPan

From various posts and comments I have read over the last few months I am very concerned about GigaPan’s future. Thousands of of us who subscribe/submit to GigaPan must find it very disconcerting to realise that the captain seems to have abandoned the ship. Where do we go from here? 360 cities – no because of the limitations. Can we maybe with our collective abilities host a new site? Food for thought. Who is GigaPan now? We need a response.

Topic: Gigapan Brand / Is it worth trying???

Hi Olivier,

Yes, you need what is in pictures 3 & 4 of the accessories page to address the parallax issues (picture 5 is to buy them together). The way I believe it works is when you remove the quick release on the standard Pro, there are two sockets exposed. The item in picture 3 then screws into those. Item in picture 4 is then your new quick release plate that can slide across the new base. Probably better than the original as I have some free play in that.

Obviously you can’t get them from Gigapan, but B&H are still listing them as available – “EPIC Pro Camera Mount Vice/Clamp”, and “Epic Pro Vice/Clamp Foot”.

“Really Right Stuff” also have an option – “GigaPan Clamp Bar + MPR-CL II” but expensive and out of stock.

Interested in your thoughts on triggering the camera as it would also be nice to mount my HX300 as well.

Cheers,

Mark

Topic: Gigapan Brand / Is it worth trying???

Sorry so long, but as it looks like Gigapan is offering us no help now, we need to share ideas.

Eddie’s comment on the software is correct. My Epic Pro ordered from a photo supplier still with one in stock turned up this Monday, but of course I can’t register for the license key for Stitch. Secondhand where the buyer has already registered and obtained the key may help, but other posts indicate changing your computer hardware renders the key useless and you only have two maximum – also assuming the original owner obtained both.

In terms of triggering a Sony camera without the right cable, the Sony VMC-UAM2 would only get you part way. Pure cable-wise you would need at least a USB type A Male to Type Mini B 5-pin male cable to complete the connection to the Pro (similar to http://www.dicksmith.com.au/computer-accessorie…). However, who knows if that is going to make the correct connections (and is safe). I’m sure there are ways but I’m certainly wary as I wouldn’t want to destroy the unit now we have no support from Gigapan. And I don’t want to pull cables apart for the same reason.

If that simple connection doesn’t work if you did want to play around, one of the simplest non-destructive (cable wise) ways would be to look at using what I think is one of the Canon cables supplied with the Pro that is simply a 2.5mm jack. From what I can see the specs for Canon have the tip as the shutter actuator, the middle as the AF actuator and the base as ground. If we can find a similar pin-out description for the Sony sourced multi-connector it would be better to pull apart a replaceable Sony sourced connector to match and just wire the Sony connector into a socket for the jack?

One other thing to watch out for with the DSC-HX400V. I have a DSC-HX300 which appears largely the same (but without GPS or WiFi). The tripod mount is not in line with the lens, but rather about 20mm over to the handgrip side. As the Pro doesn’t offer any left or right adjustment with the standard mounting hardware, you won’t be able to pivot around the no-parallax point so you may get some errors on close up pans.

Maybe someone else can give some assistance in providing some dimensions on the Epic 100. That has a mounting plate with some left-right adjustment. A while back I asked Gigapan if the HX300 would fit as the lens diameter appeared too large and could possibly foul the trigger unit – no help as they missed the point of the question. However realising the offset of the mounting point it may still be possible. Can anyone supply dimensions on the distance between the trigger unit and the mounting arm (including allowance for the vertical adjustment mechanism), and where the tripod screw can be shifted across the unit within that space on the Epic 100?

With that detail it should be possible to work out if the DSC-HX400V / HX300 can fit. And of course then you don’t have to worry about a cable as in the Pro. Size wise the 100 is probably a much better match (the Pro is a big, heavy beast and not fun to lug around). The 100 you could take on holiday with you.

Also while the HX300 is a great fun camera, with it’s tiny sensor the image quality really doesn’t come up to scratch compared to my 24MP Nikon DX (APSC) based camera especially anywhere other than bright sunlight. This kind of offsets the benefit of that 1200mm equivalent lens. If you do use it, remember to factor in plenty of time for the image stabilisation to settle after moving between shots. On my camera it takes up to 5 seconds to re-centralise. If you don’t take that into account, you won’t be photographing the correct scene. Also remember to change the aspect ratio for the pictures on the Gigapan. The Sony is using a 4:3 ratio instead of 3:2.

I’m planing to buy a Sony DSC-HX400v with the same USB terminal port as RX10. I’ve noticed that the epic pro has a USB port for the triger cable. Could it be possible to connect Epic pro and the camera with a USB adaptator ?

camera will mount but connection/ triggering is the issue. There is no pro100. there is epic 100 and epic pro. i don’t think pro will trigger by wire as i think your cam only has HDMI and USB. epic 100 may trigger with the button pusher plunger. your other problem would be the stitch software as it is a download only deal and you won’t be able to get the license from gigapan. i would look at a used unit with assurance that the seller will give you the software and serial number. no need to buy new as you’ll get zero warranty.

Topic: Gigapan Brand / Is it worth trying???

I understand that GigaPan is apparently out of business. And yet the units worked. I just ordered an Sony RX10 and went looking for a pan unit to drive it and The GigaPan was everything I wanted…

And I am willing to buy it…

I need to know if it is even possible to mount, never mind trigger the Sony Rx10.

While I can still seem to buy the pro 100, all the pieces and parts and so forth are drying up.

How would I mount and trigger my RX10 if I were to buy one of these things?

Any help much appreciated.

Topic: Products / Do you have an Epic PRO? (Need charger info)

Hi Graham,

Hopefully somebody else can add some details on the connector as I don’t have any testing equipment on me, but the details printed on the charger are:
NIMH/NICD Battery Charger
Input: 100-240VAC,50/60Hz
Output: 9.6VDC/1.2A”

Not sure if the fact the LED changes from red to green indicates if the charger cuts off when full or not, and I’m too new to mine to have picked up if it cools down indicating so. Will try and test shortly.

Hope they do pick up shortly as I picked a good time to buy mine – can’t register to get the software now!

Regards,

Mark

Topic: Products / Do you have an Epic PRO? (Need charger info)

I’ve mislaid the charger for my Epic PRO – could anyone who has one please let me know the specs so I can find a replacement, please? (voltage, max current, center tip polarity)

I know it’s a 7.2V battery but I’m guessing the charger/psu needs to be 8 or 9V?

I’m assuming a regular power supply will work or does it have to be a proper charger that detects the voltage and cuts off when full, like LIPO chargers do? (I’m not sure of the requirements for NiCad cells.)

Just in case this site dies (looks like they’re not paying the hosting fees any more) would you mind mailing me at gtoal@gtoal.com please?

Much appreciated, thanks!

There are some other options as well, like Micrcosoft ICE and AutoPano Giga, they both work with gigapan images. MS ICE is free, but uses a basic cut and paste type of stitching, while APG costs more but does a good job with blending, anti-ghosting and varied projections. APG consumes a lot of computer resources; Gigapan Stitch software´s great advantage was you could stitch huge mumbers of images on a standard laptop.

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / PowerShot G5 and EPIC

You may want to hang on to it.

As smaller cameras get more capable, you might be glad you have it. I have my original EPIC, an EPIC 100 and an EPIC Pro. I’ve kept the EPIC and EPIC 100 for that reason, and also because they don’t use proprietary rechargeables, which I think will soon prove to be the Achilles heel of the Pro.

I plan to dissect the first of my Pro packs that dies, remove the cells and wire in a jack to use an external tray with 6 rechargeable D-batteries.

BUT, I may also go back to the EPIC/EPIC 100. As an example of what the current small cameras can do, I shot this with a manual pano mount and a Sony RX-100 II:
