iOS 6 Brings Panoramic Camera to iPhone 4S

NewImage
The ability to take panoramic photos was touted as a new feature of the iPhone 5, but ability has been added to the iPhone 4S as well. The iPhone automatically adjusts for camera shake using the iPhone's gyroscope and creates up to a 240 degree panoramic image with up to 28 megapixels.

iDownloadBlog has put together this video to show how the Panorama feature works.

WOW! a feature that Microsoft brought to the iPhone over a year ago and it does 360° vertical and horizontal instead of only 270°
way to go, Apple! /s

The panoramic feature is very well implemented if anyone has bothered to try it instead of just jumping on Apple saying its old.

Go to the 4S Panoramic photo thread and take a look at the results.

Why? Most people who shoot pianos do so in portrait mode so there are more vertical pixels in the piano.


I personally love to shoot pianos.

What's the trick?


Have your friend in the initial frame. Start panning slowly. Signal them (or yell or whatever, it's taking a picture, audio isn't being recorded or anything...) once they're not on camera. Have them run around behind you strike another pose just ahead of the camera. Repeat as many times as you can for maximum fun. I've managed to get the same person in frame three times. Might be even more fun if you have entire groups of people appear multiple times... Actually, I just got a great idea for a family activity tonight...

I wish I could shoot Panarama in landscape mode


Why? Hold the camera in portrait, the picture scans to landscape. It's great for a quick 16 MP landscape shot.
