F550 proof of concept - panoramas
OK, other than leaning a bit (corrected here) I've now managed a click & spin panorama.
This is not something I expect to use often, but times will reveal themselves once one has the tools. Certainly on the far left one can see some distortion; this is not fully wide but nearly so, therefore no surprise. Exposure looks good and my cursory look shows not massive disconnects in the stitching. I've stitched no more than five panos in my time (using PS Elements), so it wasn't a huge sales point on the F550 - just another interesting feature for the great price break I saw on a day of weakness.. :^)
