  • First, press the shutter button halfway so that you can lock the focus and exposure. Then, press the shutter button fully down and pan or tilt the camera.

  • If a section with greatly varied shapes or scenery is concentrated along a screen edge, the image composition may fail. In such case, adjust the frame composition so that the section is in the center of the image, then shoot again.

To shoot a 360 degree panoramic image
This camera is equipped with a panorama shooting function, capable of shooting a near-full 360 degree panoramic image.
Shoot a panoramic image by selecting MENU set [Panorama Image Size] to [360°]. Recorded panoramic images can be scrolled accurately when played on the camera.
  • Select a shooting direction with /. You cannot shoot a panoramic image in a vertical direction with [Panorama Image Size] set to [360°].

  • The image actually recorded may not cover 360 degrees, depending on the subject or the way it is shot.

  • If you cannot pan the camera across the entire subject within the given time, a gray area occurs in the composite image. If this happens, move the camera faster to record a full panorama image.

  • Since several images are stitched together, the stitched part will not be recorded smoothly.

  • When the whole angle of panoramic shooting and the AE/AF locked angle are very different in brightness, color and focus, the shooting will not be successful. If this happens, change AE/AF locked angle and shoot again.

  • You cannot create panorama images in the following situations:

  • You pan the camera too quickly or too slowly.

  • There is too much camera shake.
