    Nex7 sweep panoramic options

    Does the Nex 7 have the same option that some of Sony's point and shoot cameras have allow the camera to shoot a horizontal panoramic photograph with the camera in the vertical orientation? In these cameras the image is not as long and skinny as when a horizontal pano image is taken with the camera in the horizontal position.

    You might want to take this question to the DYXUM.COM forum. I cannot remember the last NEX 7 shooter on this one.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    The NEX-7 does provide this function; I doubt that any current/future Sony camera will not offer it.

    Panorama size:Max. degrees of sweep angle(focal length 16mm/18mm)
    Wide: horizontal 12416 x 1856 (23M), vertical 5536 x 2160 (12M), Standard: horizontal 8192 x 1856 (15M), vertical 3872 x 2160 (8.4M)


    Of course, there is a lot of processing going on and you do lose resolution.

    Thanks for the help.

    OK, whenever I tried to ask that question to a Sony customer service representative either I couldn't explain what I wanted to do, or they have not been fully trained in some of the camera's operations. The only place near where I live to try this out (and they only have the Nex 5 right now) is a Best Buy. Many times the display cameras have power, but without memory cards they don't actually let one play with them in any meaningful way. Thanks, again.
