Features

LizardQ is a professional camera system for quickly and automatically creating panoramic or full spherical (360°×180°) images with high resolution and high dynamic range (HDR). A professional digital camera with a precision-aligned lens provides high-quality raw images. Our high-performance software automatically creates the full spherical HDR image from the raw data.

Image resolution

100, 200, 500 Megapixel

Delivers full spherical images at 100 to 500 Megapixel resolution, depending on the camera/lens combination you use. For each panoramic image, multiple full frame images are captured and merged into the final spherical image. This is an automatic process.

Capture time around one minute

No more forced waiting

Work fast at a typical capture time around one minute for indoor scenery (varies with lighting, times given for Canon 5D Mark III and fisheye lens). In full daylight, capture time can be as short as 15 seconds.

Workflow

Simple Workflow

The workflow is a simple 3 step process: Capture with a single press of a button. Then copy the raw files from the memory card to the computer. And finally let the LizardQ Stitcher autmatically process the raw files into the final panoramic image.

HDR

High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging makes sure almost no scene is too bright or too dark. Exposure bracke­ting yields a dynamic range of up to 30 f-stops. Select a HDR capture mode to optimize for best contrast range or shortest capture time.

DSLR image quality

Professional image quality

LizardQ relies on proven professional camera technology. You simply know what you can expect from a Canon EOS full frame camera, which delivers the camera RAW images into our stitching process.

Automatic operation

Automatic operation

No need to get exposure times right. The built-in auto exposure guaran­tees fully automatic operation at the push of a single button. Switch to manual mode for full control over contrast range and lens aperture.

iPod und key fob

Remote control

Change capture settings remotely with your iPhone, iPod touch or other WiFi enabled internet device. Start, stop and pause captures, preview images and watch progress while staying out of sight.
With WiFi turned off, you can still do basic remote operation using the tiny key fob.

Night shot with stars

Take images at night

Long exposure times of up to 30 seconds enable HDR image capture at night with very little ambient light.

Tilted tripod

Effortless setup

No need to tediously level the tripod. Your panoramic images will be leveled automatically, reliably and accurately, courtesy of the built-in tilt sensors. Saves time on scene, saves headaches back in the office.

Geotagging feature

Geotagging

Know where your images have been taken. A GPS satellite receiver delivers accurate location data. Generated panoramic images are geotagged auto­matically (requires a GPS-enabled Canon camera, i.e. EOS 6D).
