The GigaPan EPIC Pro can be used for Time-Lapse photography with our latest version of the firmware, released January 2011. To set the imager for Time-Lapse just go into Options under the main menu and select Time-Lapse then Timer. Adjust the timer for the desired duration between GigaPan’s and the EPIC Pro will reshoot the panorama each time at that set interval until turned off or the panorama has been cancelled. The time-lapse feature will not place a time lapse within the rows/columns of the panorama.

Is there a hollow battery or something so you can run the epic pro from ac power?
It would be nice if it just had a standard 12v jack on the side that could take say 10-15v input so you could easily plug it in with a standard 12v power adapter or plug it to a battery system.
Another important feature for timelapse would be to be able to set the gigapan to autostart after power loss… this way if your power went off for some reason or if you had it on a battery or solar installation you could have the system power cycle at night and keep working the next day.

Tim, I don’t own an Epic Pro, but last week I tested one in a camera store. It had an power jack on the front. I don’t recall it’s exact location, but I believe it was on the underside of the lip of the silvered area that holds the LCD display, just above and to the left of the “Epic Pro” logo.

As you can imagine, the Epic isn’t a hugely popular item in the store (I was the first ever to ask about them) and the battery was pretty much dead. We plugged in the AC adapter and away we went; no problem.

Oh yeah look at that, hadn’t noticed it. Thanks for pointing that out! Suppose I should read the manual ;)
