This page contains all the gigapan images I took at Shambala 2010. Taking gigapans is a tricky business and they don't always come out right, but I have included all of the images - even the ones that didn't really work - because I want as many people as possible to find themselves and their friends.
Click on the images to see them at gigapan.org. There's more to see and do below.
All images are ©Shambala.

There are even more images from Shambala 2010. My 'assistant' Dan Oliver (a.k.a. Gandhi, an accomplished photographer in his own right) used my Epic 100 to take his first gigapans. Click on the image below to see his results.
When you are at gigapan.org, look out for the small images or 'snapshots' underneath the main image.
These are created by people who have noticed an interesting detail. If you click on one, you will automatically fly in to see the detail. Snapshots with little 'gas bags' on them (like the third snapshot, above) have comments which you can read or add your own thoughts to.
If you want to create your own snapshots and leave comments you have to create a login. This is simple and painless. You don't have to give any personal details. All you need is a valid email address. You won't get any spam either - gigapan.org is hosted by a prestigious university in the USA.
In the top right corner of every page at gigapan.org there is a login link:

Pages at gigapan.org are crammed with all sorts of things you can click on. Two that are worth pointing out are the 'Launch Full Screen Viewer' link (which does what you might expect) and the 'View in Google Earth' link. The latter isn't always present, but when it is you can find it on the right-hand side under the main image.
If you have Google Earth installed then you can click on this link and fly into the image from space! Google Earth also shows you the gigapan as if you are inside the image - especially cool if the image is a 360-degree one.
