On Panoramic Photos

Link

Taking Panoramic photos requires some effort, taking the photos and stitching them after.

Since I use my mobile phone's camera all the time, a better way would be have the phone stitch them for me.

Panoman (for Nokia phones) does it nicely, with guides to take multiple photos and automatically stitch them for you.

I've done a test in Feb when on vacation (180 degrees view of Menton, France) using Panoman. I am still kicking myself for not taking more panoramic photos during the trip as I have only remembered I had the software on the phone during the last 2 days of the trip.

Nokia is in the midst of buying Panoman. Hopefully this software will become standard on Nokia phones very soon.
