"Can I make gigapixel panorama (basic, not profesyonel) this equipment?"

No. Gigapano are shot with a telephoto lens (200mm or more). Unless you have a cranked head where you can change the angle degree per degree and are very patient, there will be too much errors.

"and if I want profesyonel gigapixel panorama, Which equipment I must buy?"

There is the panogear, compatible with the dedicated gigapano software from Kolor: http://www.kolor.com/panogear-motorized-panoramic-head.html

or Gigapan: http://gigapan.com/

The panogear is built from an astronomical head (Merlin), where gigapan is custom made.

The advantage of the panogear is that you can still shoot standard (non giga) panoramas, thus reselling your ninja 3 head. With the gigapan, you can only shoot gigapano, no "standard" 360x180 panoramas.

I hope it helps.

He yasarcan,

I think 135mm is more then enough to shoor giga pixel.
You need an other pano head though. I think NN 5 or m1 with the right rotator.

There are some robots, they use a lot.
Gigapan is one.
But other good ones are Roundshot-vr and Clauss

Cheers,
Tuur *thumbsup*

Telephoto lens (200mm or more) is not necessary. For example, this pano http://3dpanorama.ru/underground/giga-web/ is 1.25Gpix
And I used NN3 + RD16 + 5DMk2 + 50/1.4 *smile*
