The photo on the left above is but a small slice of the total <a href="http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/48492/" target="_blank">Dubai Panorama</a>, and although parts of the actual panorama appear to be either out-of-focus or distorted - perhaps from the stitching process - in most sections you can zoom in to amazing detail. A photo of the<a href="http://gigapansystems.com/gigapan-epic-pro-product-page.html" target="_blank"> GigaPan Epic Pro </a>is on the right above, and while the $895 list price likely eliminates it from the casual photographer's kit, there can be no doubt that it can produce stunning results in the right hands!</p>
