A very quick look at the eMotimo Spectrum st4 with the newest firmware that allows for fast pano / gigapixel shooting.

Spectrum st4 – Pano/Giga in action from eMotimo on Vimeo.

With the latest R005 firmware release from eMotimo, the spectrum st4 just added fast pano/gigapixel shooting to it’s resume. Here’s the spectrum st4 knocking out a 24 frame shot (3 rows by 8 columns) with perfect 25% overlap on a 42MP Sony A7R2. From start frame to end shutter close, the sequence took 16.2 seconds. The end result of this 24 frame shot on a is the most boring 475 Megapixel beast of our walls. We can do better, but wanted to share a quick BTSs of the speed. We know you can do better. Upgrade your firmware and get out and shoot!
