Nice pano Slood. Here's another angle from last summer....taken just after a bone-chilling dip!

Joker, In camera rx100 looks nice.  I should learn how to do that.  rx100, stitched at home.

Just checked back here and noticed your comment. It isn't tough to  learn! Just  switch to pano mode  and follow the instructions on the screen (or in the viewfinder if  you've got one of those).  At least that's how  it works on the M2... The rest of the learning  curve  is a matter of seeing the result and adjusting your approach. I've found three typical  glitches, all of which are easy to fix by re-shooting if you notice them by reviewing the pan right after you've  shot it:
1) exposure - the  whole  pano  will be set to whatever you've started at,  so if you  pan from a darker area to lighter,  the lighter will be overexposed with blown highlights unless you set some exposure  compensation to anticipate this (easy enough  to keep trying until  you get the right  amount of +/- exposure unless you were  trying  to  catch some  sort of  passing  action  as part of the pano)
2) panning too fast (the camera gives pretty  good feedback on  this so it's easy  to notice and adjust on your next take)
3) going off-level during the  pan, which can create either or  both of wildly  curved horizons and/or blank spots on edges of the image

It's impressive how  much  computing  power is jammed into  a little camera these days. This is not a simple bit of processing to stitch these handheld shots together this smoothly!

One drawback  to in-camera is that  the  output is jpg. I generally  prefer RAW to  be able  to make my own  tonal adjustments,  but for many  scenes the RX100 conversion  to  jpg is  just fine.

Here's one of the panoramic selfies that I've  shot with my iPhone. Always good for some amusement on  Facebook,  which has a  nice "player" for iPhone panos... And as with the  Rx100,  it's amazing how much computational  power is jammed into  this little device.

Thanks for tips, Joker.  Goofing around a bit w/in camera stitching on my 1st gen rx100, but still prefer results I get from home software stitching.

In phone stitching is fun and sometimes get stuff that I like, even when viewed on a real monitor. ip5s.

Thanks Jim!

A bonus couple of unique panoramas.


Shot from the same location.   Yellow aster butte.   But the day shot was on a Galaxy s8 and the night shot was with my Sony A7.   Both processed in lightroom and photoshop.

That is a sweet shot awilsondc, did you camp there?

When I got my Sony A7rII I started with the 55mm 1.8 prime to maximize the quality and resolution. I still often carry just that on hikes. I zoom with my feet and shoot panos when I want a wider view. Shooting panos the benefit is very high resolution files suitable for large prints when they work out, the negative is that shooting multiple images increases the chance of mistakes - one messed up shot can ruin a whole pano. Computer/processing time also increases exponentially with these extremely large files, esp. since I often use adjustment layers in Photoshop. Since I've retired I have the time and inclination for it, but YMMV.

Here are a few from the Artist's Point area last weekend.

Mt. Baker, 4 shots, 106 MP final file
