Travel - TMB panorama

I loved my new Sony NEX-5N camera for its panorama capabilities on the TMB.  I had to learn to use it, though, as the camera was new for the trip and I hadn’t had a lot of time to experiment before we left.  To operate the feature, you choose it from a menu, then hold the shutter release down while panning to the right.

Any angling, though, will shut off the feature right then and there and the camera reports an error to you.  I found that I was prone to angling as I panned because the mountains go up!  So I learned to plan the sweep of the camera, starting high enough to capture the peaks that come into view as the pan progresses.  Whew.
