Sony have introduced a new camera which has a panoramic mode with a difference. A panoramic mode is available on most point-and-shoot cameras but they still involve taking separate images which are then later stitched together in software. With the new Sony HX-1, you can take panoramic photos that are stitched together within the camera – but there’s a difference. You take the panorama by sweeping the camera across the vista you want to capture! Really cool (if you have a steady hand or tripod handy)! Sony calls it Sweep Panorama Technology.
