iPhoneography Week! – First iPhone Panorama Experiment

Happy Friday everyone I hope all of you who are receiving your shiny new iPhones will enjoy them! In celebration of the iPhone’s release I’ve been posting iPhone 4S photographs edited with Snapseed all week long. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series, but today I’ve got something a bit special for you.

Yesterday I took the iPhone out with the newly updated iOS 6 software and experimented with the newly added Panorama shooting mode. Today I have a few early shots for you! (Make sure you click on the images to view them larger).

First iPhone Panorama Experiment

On Wednesday Apple updated the iPhone with a new version of it’s iOS software. While the largest talked about features were their new maps solution and improvements to Siri I think my favorite new feature is the Panorama option in the camera.

I’ll have a more detailed write up on how I feel Panorama works early next week, but for right now I just wanted to share a couple of early photos from my first test. I can tell you that in early testing Panorama is pretty cool, it’s amazing how fast it stitches these photos together, and for the most part they are stitched accurately. The only major flaw that I can see is dealing with changing exposures, like in the sunset photograph above where the sky’s exposure isn’t rendered properly across the photo.

All these photographs were edited on my iPad with Snapseed. One of the issues with these large resolution files (as much as 5200 pixels wide) is that trying to edit them on the 3.5 inch screen of the iPhone isn’t exactly easy on the eyes. The larger screen of the iPad helps out a lot, but it’s still cramped and Snapseed doesn’t seem to support pinch to zoom.

I hope you’ve liked these photos, and as I mentioned, I’ll have a full write up on Panorama for the iPhone early next week so stay tuned!
