Ordinary cameras seldom capture the full impact of breathtaking landscapes, city scenes and tall buildings. Even if you’ve got a wide angle lens, it’s hard to squeeze everything into the frame and do the scene justice.
To pack more into the picture, photographers traditionally use the trick of shooting several frames, shifting the camera’s position to capture different parts of the scene. These shots are combined to create one extra-large image. However it’s a fiddly manual process that demands skill and patience to stitch frames together without obvious joins.
Now there’s a fun, easy way to create seamless, ultra-wide pictures with a huge field of view.
Sweep Panorama takes the hard work out of creating fabulous panoramic shots. And best of all, you don’t need a PC or special software: everything’s done for you inside the camera.
Exclusive to Sony, Sweep Panorama is featured on the Cyber-shot DSC-W350, DSC-W370, DSC-W380, DSC-WX1, DSC-TX5, DSC-TX7, DSC-TX1, DSC-H55, DSC-HX5V and DSC-HX1. They’re the world’s first compact cameras that automatically capture and combine a high-speed burst of full-resolution images.
Just press the shutter button and sweep the camera from left to right across your scene. It also works vertically, letting yousweep the camera up and down to capture tall buildings in a single, dramatic image. The ultra-fast EXMOR CMOS sensor inside the camera shoots a rapid burst of frames at a speed that many sophisticated SLR cameras can’t match. Frames are then stitched together automatically inside the camera: the whole process takes just three seconds.
Standard Wide mode captures dramatic panoramic shots with detail-packed 4912 x 1080 pixel resolution (40:9 ratio). If you want an even bigger field of view, choose Ultra-wide mode and capture amazing 60:9 images with 7152 x 1080 pixels. You can also hold the camera vertically (in portrait position) and shoot extra-tall panoramas in standard (16:9) or ultra-wide (32:9) modes.
