The combination of the GigaPanEPIC Prorobotic camera mount and Promote Control DSLR remote control provide unsurpassed flexibility in camera positioning and exposure control simplifying the creation of stunning HDR (High Dynamic Range) and focus stacked gigapixel panoramas.

The EPIC Pro and Promote Control automatically capture high-resolution images, giving photographers the ability to:

•Easily take up to 45 photos at an individual location during the capture process for HDR
•Control the camera to take up to 120 different focal planes at each location for focus stacking, creating an amazing image that is tack sharp from front to back (Canon only)
•Shoot up to 9.0EV steps between bracketed exposures
• Capture exposures anywhere from 1/8000 of a second up to several hours
•Automatically switch to Bulb mode bracketing for images longer than 30 seconds (*5DMIII, 6D and 60D require manual switch to Bulb mode)
