Caption process

How long does it take to shoot a Gigapixel panorama with the SmartAerial PANO ?

The global process depend mainly from two parameters, which are computed and stored from each template.
– The DJI camera performance for JPG or Raw processing,
– The focal of your lens which impacts the number of image per row
For example, with an Zenmuse X5, when your drone and camera are centered with the required camera parameter, you can capture over 10 pictures per minute. So the total caption of a 180° panorama is 4 min 30 sec.

Software
