iOS 6 Brings Panoramic Camera to iPhone 4S







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.

Pretty sure you're being sarcastic, but does anybody if there's an app out there that will do all encompassing panoramas? That actually sounds pretty cool.

He may well have been being sarcastic, but there is an iOS app from Microsoft that does do that. Photosynth can take full 360-degree and all around up and down panorama, and I think it does a pretty good job.
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photo...430065256?mt=8

The one advantage I see from the built-in panorama mode is that it does the image stitching while you're moving the camera and it's ready to be viewed almost instantly - other panorama apps make you wait a bit as the image gets compiled.

The "360 Panorama" app in the App store has been available for a couple of years and does this. I've used it quite a bit and love it. The stitching doesn't look quite as smooth as the new native panorama app, but the 360 deg feature is cool. You can take a 360 degree photo and later open it up and pan around as if you were standing there again.

Bah - not on new iPad? Hmph!

The MS app is pretty good, but it doesn't feel all that smooth, and if I recall correctly (haven't used it often as it's a bit slow) it doesn't just give you a standard, albeit massive, picture on your picture roll.

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

I played with this today. In portrait mode it does Horizontal panoramas. But in Landscape it does vertical panoramas (a tall building for example). You can also get different effects wether you turn the camera in a stationary position or walk with the camera in a straight line. The quality is very good and the rendering is very quick. I have all the panorama apps which there are many. But most have quality issues. I have liked Auto stitch the best so for. You can make some very high quality pics with that app. But nothing is as quick and easy as this new native app. I'm going to a pumpkin patch tomorrow and will play with it some more.

I do laugh at comments like this.

If apple don't so anything people say. "Oh Android has had this for ages out of the box the iPhone is cr*p. "
If apple release an update people say "Oh this has been around for ages"

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

I like Photosynth, but it is nothing like Panorama. Like Autostitch and 360, it stitches frames together. It does a great job, guiding the snaps and stitching them on the fly, but the product is a collage, not a normal picture. Panorama makes a single 8-28 MP seamless image.

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.

I've one upped Apple's picture from the keynote and managed to get the same friend to appear three times in three different poses in a single panoramic shot. Has anyone managed four times yet? (It's some nice 2 am kind of fun thing to do...)
