The iPhone 5 and Its Panoramic Camera

Panoramic photography is a photography technique using specialized equipment or software that captures images with elongated fields of view. In other words, panoramic photography is more or less wide format photography. Photos taken using panoramic photography generally have aspect ratios of around 2:1 or higher. As an example, wider panoramic photos may have an aspect ratio of 4:1 or even 10:1, which may cover a field of view ranging around 360 degrees.

Nowadays, panoramic photography is making a move from traditional digital panoramic cameras to smartphones. In fact, the iPhone 5 leads this significant move in adapting panoramic photography for a newer photo-savvy audience. The new iOS 6 update adapted the ‘Panorama’ feature into the native Camera app within the OS. This feature is a new photo-taking mode made for users to indulge in panoramic photography.

The iPhone 5, on a hardware level, is capable of capturing panoramic images up to 28 megapixels in size—this may deter most consumers from even purchasing a proper panoramic camera in the first place! In fact, the feature itself has great reviews across the board, proving that it’s one of the many iPhone 5 features well welcomed by the consumer base.

What does the iPhone 5’s panoramic camera mode do? First and foremost, the new feature can be installed onto your iPhone 5 via updating to iOS 6. After updating, the feature should be available within the native Camera app. To get started, tap the options menu within the app and select Panorama, listed at the bottom of the following drop-down menu.

Panorama mode opens with a long and seemingly blank strip nestled in the center of your iPhone’s screen with an additional arrow pointing to the right. Press the camera’s corresponding button again, moving the iPhone in accordance to the arrow on the screen. While you’re doing that, you should center the phone as much as you can, so the photo won’t look too off. Once you click the camera button again, the panoramic image will be recorded and saved into your ‘Camera Roll.’

Is the iPhone 5’s panoramic camera really effective for taking panoramic images? Many people who have spent a lot of time with the feature attest to the camera’s effectiveness. For most, however, it will take some practice to align and capture images without them coming out too wobbly.

The iPhone 5’s handy panoramic camera feature is definitely a hit for an incredible amount of users. Not only is the feature simple to use, but it’s also an inexpensive way to get started taking panoramic images without any additional equipment.
