In this page you’ll see how easy it is to take panorama shot with your iOS 6 native camera app without installing additional (third-party) app. Previously, I rather to use app named “DMD Panorama”. But since iOS 6, I think I’ve already found another easier alternative. One improvement in iOS 6 is the introduction of panorama mode in Camera app. It lets you take a panoramic photo without downloading any third-party apps. The feature is currently limited to iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 users, and if you haven’t used it yet here’s what you will want to do. In this post, we’ll walk you through this new feature.
The “How To” Steps
Open Camera (from the lock screen is the fastest way)
Tap the “Options” button and select “Panorama” to switch the Panorama mode.
Tap the camera button to start taking a picture, then slowly turn your device from left to right while keeping the arrow centered on the horizontal line. As you move along, you should notice the panorama box moves along its track.
Finish by reaching the end of the panoramic guide line or by tapping the camera button again.
Few Tips To Capture Best Panoramic Photos
Hold steady and aim to center along the provided line
Move slowly horizontally to allow for lighting adjustments as image pans
Tap an area of neutral lighting for the initial exposure, avoid exposure lock in dramatically varied lighting situations
If you do end up with artifacts and/or regions of black pixels, use Crop directly on iPhone to clean them up instantly.
Once Panorama is active, moving slowly and holding steady to “paint” your panoramic photo gives the best results. If you move too quickly the camera won’t have time to adjust properly to lighting changes, and artifacts can appear on the final image either in the form of black pixels for areas that are missed or out of the guide line, or in the form of chunky transitions.
