  1. Hi All

    I want to buy a new SLR Digital Camera that can do Panoramic photos.

    I though about Nikon, Minolta, Epson.

    Where I can learn what are my options ? in Nikon site for example I couldn't
    find any materials on Panorama Photography.

    Thanks in Advance

    You won't find any that do it in-camera - however, doing it afterwards
    by stitching several shots is easy enough There are various software
    packages that can do it for you (some of the D-SLRs may have such a
    program included) or you can do it manually in a graphics program that
    allows layers (eg Photoshop or Elements)

    http://www.panoguide.com/ should give you more info that you have time
    to read.

    Pentax Optio 450 & 550 have panoramic assist and come with software that
    stitches the photos together.

    When you snap the first pic the image is shifted over to the last 20% of the
    frame and made transparent so you can line up the next shot quite
    accurately. The software does the rest on your computer witha 360 viewing
    programme.

    I have owned 4 dig cameras so far and the Pentax 550 is the nicest in most
    respects so far. I purchased aKyocera S5 and sold it after 3 months, I
    couldn't stand the slow speed and the poor low light quality. My Cheap
    Fujifilm units are still the fastest shutter release speeds though.

    Hello: There is photo-editing software from Ulead,www.ulead.com,called Cool
    360. You can create a 360 degree Panoramic print. I believe there is a 15
    day free trial. Have not tried it but thought to pass this on.Anthony
