Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / gigapan pro with sony A-7

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.

Topic: Upload / 360pano

How do I upload a 360 degree pano? The ration is 2:1 and works on other sites and when I add to panotour pro to host on my website. However, when I upload to gigapan it keeps the photo flat and does not wrap the image into a full sphere like the TIME magazine pano on the home page.

I would first check settings to make sure MIRROR LOCK UP is OFF. Alternatively, try using SHUTTER TEACH to set up the unit.

I have the same problem. All the links on the terrible convoluted website are for “learning how to upload” or to buy Gigapan products. The link posted above is for Gigapan Stitch and it looks like you need to own the hardware to register it. Does Gigapan no longer offer free services?

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / Nikon D5300 double shot

Hi guys
I own a Epic Pro and use it with my Nikon D5300.
The problem i have is, that the system shot two pictures at the same position. If i use the Live view there will be only one Picture.
Is there any issues with the settings or any other problem?

Thanks for help and i am sorry for my english

Greetings from Germany

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / gigapan pro with sony A-7

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.

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/

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.

No need to hack anything. you can plug in your battery charger cable directly to the pro. Look under the the display on the right hand side of the panel, right above the Epic Pro decal.

The link on the gigapan website takes you to the generic Omega Brandess website which doesnt have it available. Thanks, James

Topic: Upload / Power cable for continuous gigapanning

Hi, is there a cable you can use to power the Epic Pro continuously without having to change the battery? Would find that very useful. Would hacking the using power cable to fit the battery hole work? Thanks, James PS would have put the question in the hardware section but it seemed to have a technical issue.

It is literally impossible for me to find the Uploader software link… I remember it always being hard to find, but now it is nowhere to be found. Not a single link for contacting support works either. Extremely annoying

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / gigapan pro with sony A-7

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 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.

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.

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

Did any of these ideas work? I’m resigned to using my Canon 7D instead of my new Sony A7II for my Epic Pro

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / gigapan pro with sony A-7

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?

Topic: Products / What's up with the Gigapan store?

I’ve found that the gigapansystems emails don’t always get answered. And of course any links on this website are no longer supported.

I would suggest you may want to contact OmegaBrandess to see if they also managed to pick up the Capture Studio software when they purchased the hardware side of the business.

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

Hi Bo,

Neither of my chargers flash green. My oldest battery was left unused for a long time and I thought it might be past it. I found however that after 3 recharges it managed to hold a decent charge again. I’ve also found that it appears to be best not to leave the battery in the unit.

Unfortunately the amount of spam in the forums means it is hard to find info.
