What's in your bag?

For the sake of the noobies that are just taking up GigaPanning, I thought it might be worthwhile for some of us that have been doing this for a while to “open our bags” and share their contents.

What do you carry beyond the imager, camera, batteries and tripod to make your Gigapan outings successful? It would also be useful to chime in with brands/types of tripods, batteries, etc.

Greetings: Since you asked. I have a fine art photo studio and am represented by three galleries in SC, two ithe Charleston Tourist Mecca area.I also do 15-20 show sayer including the Charleston Spoleto festival.

My primary body is a Canon 5 D MK II. ll of my lenses are L series going from a 17 – 40 to the 500 f4 lS.

I was intrigued by the concept and bought the Epic last week to test the concept. I used it with my Canon Elph to capture the first image. After my first awkward capture I am thrilled with the potential and look forward to getting the pro to support my usual gear. Although I believe the Epic will be best for international travel.

Please feel free to check out my first gigapan stitch on gigapan. Search for nickerjo. Also please feel free to visit my studio site,

All the best,

j. Nickerson

2. Small flashlight
3. Extra bubble level. Sometimes it’s easier to level the tripod before mounting the GP.
4. Homemade lens hood, a very efficient one

I’ve made several supports for the GP:
