Infrared Panorama Photography With the GigaPan Epic

The GigaPan Epic is designed to only handle smaller compact digital cameras. But a bit of ingenuity allowed me to use my Canon 350D, which was converted for infrared photography, with the Epic to produce IR panoramas.

As I’ve covered in another article, a bit of DIY work will allow you to use dSLRs on the base model GigaPan Epic motorized panorama platform.

Here are my first results using my converted for infrared Canon 350D. They were stitched using the free GigaPan Stitcher software.
