• Panoramas are created from multiple frames. The
camera may in some cases record a greater or lesser
angle than selected or be unable to stitch the frames
together perfectly. The last part of the panorama
may not be recorded if shooting ends before the
panorama is complete.
• Shooting may be interrupted if the camera is panned
too quickly or too slowly. Panning the camera in a
direction other than that shown cancels shooting.
• The desired results may not be achieved with mov-
ing subjects, subjects close to the camera, unvarying
subjects such as the sky or a field of grass, subjects
that are in constant motion, such as waves and wa-
terfalls, or subjects that undergo marked changes in
brightness. Panoramas may be blurred if the subject
is poorly lit.
Choose z for seamless 360° panoramas that can be
played back in a loop (P 61).
The t SAVE DATA SET-UP > SAVE ORG IMAGE
option in the setup menu can be used to record a
v panorama in addition to a seamless z panora-
ma (P 100).
Depending on the subject and shooting conditions,
the camera may produce distorted results or a v
panorama. The top and bottom of the area visible in
the shooting display are cropped out and white strips
may appear at the top and bottom of the display.
For Best Results
For best results, move the camera in a small circle at
a steady speed, keeping the camera horizontal and
being careful only to pan in the direction shown by
the guides. If the desired results are not achieved, try
panning at a different speed.
