Topic: Gigapan Mechanism / 1 World Trade Center Epic Pro

I had a very nice chat with Mike shortly after he posted the message above.

I thought it was exceptionally kind of him to take the time to address my concerns “live” rather than in a forum post or email. We spoke for 30 or 40 minutes, and I came away convinced that Gigapan as a company is back on the right track. They realize that their current user base is critical to their success moving forward, and seem committed to re-engage with them (us).

And by the way, the EPIC Pro used in the 1WTC shoot was stock – no special mods other than attachment points for safety cables.

Dear Eric et al.
I can report that Wine 1.7.2 runs the uploader just fine!
Tested under OpenSUSE 13.1 with stock version of wine.

Hi there Mosely, Michael Franz with Gigapan here. I understand that you have a few questions regarding the shoot from the top of 1WTC.

Personal phone call coming your way.

Seems like one half of the problem is now solved – Google Earth now loads. But on my computer, “Switch to simplified Google Maps view” mode still does not work.

Topic: General Gigapanning / d800 nodal points.

Some limited info here, but only for the extremes. http://wiki.panotools.org/Entrance_Pupil_Database

I used a this rig to measure the points for my Fuji S9500. Set the zoom then slide the wooden strip backwards & forwards to determine the ‘no parallax’ point then mark that point & the zoom value on the wood.

Set the next zoom value & repeat. Was surprised to find that the point lay behind the camera body @ full zoom!

Topic: General Gigapanning / d800 nodal points.

Does anyone have nodal point presets for a Nikon d800 with a 70-200 zoom. I can set each focal length separately, but knowing what others have already found to be correct would be a helpful start Thanks in advance

Same boat here. It’s been 1 week with no respond from GigaPan. Are they all busy with flight MH370’s searching?

Topic: General Gigapanning / Camera mounting problems

Does your 70-200 not have a tripod foot on it, or the option to add one? That’s what’s typically used as the mounting point because it’s usually placed near the center of gravity of lens+camera.

If it’s a 70-200 F4, try this link:

Topic: General Gigapanning / Camera mounting problems

Got the new Gigapan Pro today and within two min I had to take to it with a saw.. Who designed this machine? I have a Canon 5D mark iii with battery grip. The baseplate silver screw was two big and hit the grip. That was the first of many problems..
I am using a 70-200mm L with a 2xconverter… the unit will not hold it’s position because the weight is not even over the pivot point because that is where it has to be.. I have cut the massive base plate screw in half and now the camera fits but when the camera is in the correct position, the weight is out of balance and the unit moves… any suggestions..?

Topic: Digital Cameras on Gigapan / Epic Pro & 1DX

I have just purchased the Epic Pro for my 1DX and have encountered the following issues and wondered if others have come across the same things

1 – The 1DX is identified as a compatible camera with the Epic Pro but it does not drop down far enough on the cradle to centralise the lens with the rotation point.

2 – HDR I can get my 50D to do HDR but the 1DX does not do it. the pro says it is taking the picture but nothing happens in either auto or manual focus.

I must admit I am finding the pro not very good with the 1DX and also the customer support being rather pathetic as I have raised a support ticket over a week ago and nothing back from Gigapan re the 1DX compatibility. getting close to sending it back as not working / fit for purpose.

Really want it to work but getting very frustrated.

Topic: Stitch / Can't Register; No Stitch?

I recently bought an Epic 100, but the serial number is not recognized when I try to register it. I did buy the hardware from Amazon, so could that be the issue? It still comes with the pamphlet prompting me to register to receive a copy of Stitch, and so far Customer Service hasn’t responded to my questions. Has this happened to anyone else?

Topic: Embedding / Embedding Sample Code -- fullscreen, snapshots, large views

A few more updates checked into the github repository: https://github.com/barneyzang/gigapan-embedlarge

- fixed problem where maps were only loading into the top left corner
- more cleanup / optimizations
- Note that it’s now possible to force use of the SeaDragon viewer via a parameter in the url: “&viewer=sd”

For example: http://saracino.com/gigapan-embedlarge/gigapan….
(note that the forum software appears to be munging the ampersand in the url. It should be:
/gigapan.large.php?id=146069&viewer=sd
Here’s another link: http://tinyurl.com/m6olgq9

Sample links earlier in the thread have been updated.

Topic: General Gigapanning / Geolocation Problem

This week I upgraded from Vista 32bit to Windows 8 64bit, and it still doesn´t work in either default nor “Switch to simplified Google Maps view” modes. No Google Earth tabs or other windows running, yet I can see google maps if I open in a separate window. I installed the latest google earth plug-in, no help. Yet Google maps integrates faultlessly in my two GPS programs, on the same computers. I still geolocate, because I usually take photos of my handheld GPS unit, but it is usually easier to use the gigapan-google map interface.

Topic: General Gigapanning / Geolocation Problem

Geolocation is working fine for me. Win7-64bit, Chrome browser. I’d suggest making sure you don’t have any other tabs/windows open that are running Google Maps/Earth, as that’s caused me problems in the past.

You do have the Google Earth browser plug-in (http://www.google.com/earth/explore/products/pl…) running, don’t you?

Topic: General Gigapanning / Geolocation Problem

I use Chrome, and it doesnt work ´for me either. It wasn’t always like that, but in the last few months that problem has existed, ever since they upgraded other parts of the website. Seems the geolocation option got lost somehow in the process.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Getting more gigapans geocoded

I’m new to the whole gigapanning thing but I’m having trouble geolocating anything. Is there something wrong with the site or is it just me? I’ve tried 3 different machines and 3 different browsers. A loading wheel just keeps spinning by the “changes saved” text.
