Clients and Collaborators

Photographers of all levels in entertainment, travel, sports, science and more are using the Gigapan EPIC series to capture the moment, document, share and interact in a revolutionary way.


The world-renowned band embedded this gigapan on their website to give fans an inside look at their recording studio.

Bonnaroo Music Festival

The Bonnaroo Music Festival captured Gigapans of the crowds at their 2010 summer concerts and embedded the images on the Bonnaroo website for fans to find themselves, and link the gigapans on their Facebook pages.

Nano Gigapan

The Nano Gigapan projects gives users a microscopic look at insects, barnacles, algae and flower seeds using a GigaPan unit attached to a scanning electron microscope (SEM) for 1000X magnification.

Mount Everest

Astronaut Scott Parazynski and Keith Cowing climbed Mount Everest as part of education and public outreach for their non-profit organization, the Challenger Center for Space Science Education.

MLB Gigapan Tagoramic at the World Series

MLB used the EPIC Pro to capture amazing gigapans of every game of the 2010 World Series. Using GigaPan Tagoramic, fans could find themselves, find their friends and tag on Facebook!

Hewlett Packard

As shown in the photo above, HP created kiosks to demonstrate gigapans on their new TouchSmart computers, which allow you to zoom in and out of the phenomenal detail with the touch of your finger. The HP TouchSmart PC is a touch-enabled, all-in-one PC that makes viewing a gigapan a compelling, hands-on experience.


Anne Rowland Fine Art Photography

Anne Rowland’s most recent photography exhibit at the Hemphill Fine Arts gallery utilizes the Gigapan to produce landscape images with immense detail. Her intentional misuse of the Gigapans allows for optical “mistakes” which interrupt the predictability of her images. Evidence of movement, distortions of space, and inconsistencies in continuity, focus and depth all enhance the overall effect of the end product.


Golf Digest

Golf Digest photographer Darren Carrol has been using the EPIC Pro to capture shots on the PGA Tour, including this shot of the 18th hole at the British Open. Zoom in to see tournament champion Louis Oosthuizen lining up his putt.

PBS NOVA Galapagos Islands

NOVA used Gigapans of the Galapagos Islands as part of their PBS show, "Darwin's Darkest Hour." which discussed how the islands inspired Darwin's thinking about evolution.

Stephen King fans hid in a Gigapan of London's North Bank, holding the words from the conclusion of his long-awaited new novel, "Under the Dome." Viewers can zoom in to  reassemble the scrambled sentences and find out what happens!


Portland Timbers
