3 Useful Panoramic Cameras

Panoramic cameras come in handy when you need to take wide angle shots. Many digital cameras are now coming with panoramic capabilities. With most panoramic cameras, you simply turn the dial on your digital camera to panoramic mode and move your camera in the direction of your image. It is almost like taking a video, but you end up with a panoramic photo in the end. Here are three useful panoramic cameras:

1. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX1

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 is a 9.1 megapixel digital camera with 20 times optical zoom. For panoramic shots, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 has a feature called Sweep Panorama. The Sweep Panorama feature allows you to move your camera around as the camera combines the shots to form a 4,912x1,080 or 7,152x1,080 pixel image.

2. Fujifilm FinePix S1500

Many people don't pay much attention to Fujifilm when they are purchasing a new digital camera, but Fujifilm actually produces high quality digital cameras. The FujiFilm FinePix S1500 is a 10 megapixel digital camera with 12 times optical zoom. One of the features of the FujiFilm FinePix S1500 is the Panorama mode. With the Panorama mode on the FujiFilm FinePix S1500, you can capture three consecutive shots and the camera will blend them together to form a single image.

3. Olympus Mju Tough 6000

The Olympus Mju Tough 6000 is a rugged 10 megapixel digital camera. Like the Fujifilm FinePix S1500, the Olympus Mju Tough 6000 has a Panorama feature on its Mode dial that allows you to capture consecutive photos that will be blended together to form a single photo. One of the best features of the Olympus Mju Tough 6000 is its 28mm wide lens, which is perfect for panoramic shots.
