Get 180º and 360º views of your world

Easy Panorama Mode combines multiple shots into a seamless 180º or 360º panoramic image. Begin by focusing on your starting point. Once the camera detects your directional pan, the shooting starts and images begin stitching together in-camera. Use the handy in-monitor guidelines to keep the view aligned and track your progress. Amazing!
