Using panorama camera in IOS 6
iPHONE 5 owners may have seen a TV ad demonstrating the phone’s new panorama photo feature, with a long line of children in fancy dress against a white background. But if you’ve updated your iPhone 4S to iOS 6, you have the capability as well. iPod Touch (fifth gen) owners are also good to go.
Go to your iPhone camera and hit Options and Panorama. An arrow indicates where to turn to take your photo. Tap the arrow if you want to go in the opposite direction. For a wide panorama hold the phone in portrait mode and for a long, skinny shot, hold it in landscape mode. Click your camera icon to start your panorama and click it again when you want to stop.
Slow and steady gets the best quality images. Aim to keep the arrow on the middle of the line as it travels across the screen. Think about exposure first, particularly if your subject has dark and light tones. Choose which area needs to be properly exposed and lock the exposure by holding that point on the screen before you shoot your image.
Have someone stand in the edge of your panorama and when you pan past them, have them run behind you and back in line ready to be in the shot as you continue to pan. It’s a bit gimmicky but your subject can be in two places at once.
