Seems they did....
The panorama stitch feature automatically:
Displays an overlay on the side of the LCD indicating where one picture ended and the next should align
In just 3 shots, captures up to 180Âº of coverage in ultra-wide angle ? an industry exclusive
Stitches together 2 or 3 pictures (3.1 MP min. each) in real time
Locks the exposure and white balance on the first picture, and sets the flash to ?off? to maintain consistency across the sequence of pictures
Yes the panos from it look great.
BUT they have not put an exposure lock function in so there is no easy way to take two of the 180 panoramas and stitch them together into a 360... They will not match. It would be easy to add and the lack of it makes you wonder if they are really paying attention to users.
