Sony DSC-RX100: Panorama pictures in camera – how to and examples (M3)


Hi there! The Sony RX100 makes it really easy to take
panoramic pictures so rather than coming home from a vacation with the picture of the Danish
parliament like this you can actually get a whole wide scene like I’m showing you here. If that is to your liking then the RX100 makes
it really easy to get the job done. It’s really simple as I said: all you have
to do is to select the mode that looks like a little square box that has been stepped
upon. Could we get you to turn the dial? Yes and once more? There it is! It looks like a little box as you see here. In terms of setting it up there are 2 parameters:
one is the size. I think that has to do with how many pictures
it uses to make the panorama. The other one is the direction. I will get back to direction. You can select that smarter than in the menu
system we all love to hate. In terms of execution you just press the shutter
and then you move the camera as instructed on the screen. It is really simple. I think it is as simple as it is on a smartphone
and as you can see here – when you have turned all the way around then it processes the image
and boom there is the image. That’s all there is to it. As I said earlier in the video: you can select
the direction in which the panorama shot. You can simply turn the ring on the front
of the camera and that changes the direction. Very, very simple. Out of the camera comes a picture like this,
nicely stitched together. Sometimes you can see there’s a little bit
of chopping up and I think also you should avoid having people moving objects in in your
frame because they become chopped up. But otherwise this is all there is to it. Notice that what comes out of the camera is
JPGs, so if you’re shooting into the sun or other things that makes it necessary for you
to do post processing of the picture, then you know the limitations to JPGs. RAW is the only way to go. If you really want to have high quality pictures
there’s no alternative to actually take the good old fashioned way of doing it and taking
the individual pictures and then stitch them together in post. That’s it from me! Thank you for watching! As always: Happy shooting! Take care, bye-bye.

    It was back in the year 2000 that I tried shooting panorama picture (first & last time) with my Canon G1, then printed it out on inkjet roll paper (over 3' long) after pp.

    Later on, I just shot 180° with a Nikon 10.5mm DX lens on my DSLR and now 360° with a 360VR camera. Just getting lazy! 🙂
