Writing with Light

iPhone Friday – Panorama Mania Courtesy of iOS6

OK I had something completely different planned for today but that’s going to have to wait. I updated my iPhone yesterday to iOS6 and of all the great new features the first one that I had to try out was the panorama option on the camera. When I first heard about it I honestly didn’t think it was going to work as well as it does. The pano “box” on the screen makes sure that the iPhone is level and once you press the shutter you just have to pan along smoothly to get your shot.

I worked today so unfortunately I didn’t have anything exciting to shoot but hopefully these 2 images will give you an idea of the potential of this new feature.

  1. I just read about that new feature, and am looking forward to testing it out. That’s quite the reading list by the way. 🙂

  4. These are awesome, Edith! I updated mine last night, but I have yet to play with the new features. Thanks for posting these, now I gotta try it myself.

  5. I’d heard about this feature. I wouldn’t have guessed the first shot was a Pano. Second one is real moody and looks great.

    • Thanks Andy. Yes the first one is a pano but it was a short shelf so I did’t use the whole length as I did in the second image.

  9. Nice shots here, Edith. I was holding off on the update until I knew more about it but you’ve now inspired me to get it done. 😉

    Nothing like an upgrade with new toys to experiment with.
    Have a great weekend, friend.

  14. I find it quite exciting to study books on a shelf… especially if they belong to someone I find interesting.
