Default Panoramic picture

Ive got a Canon A40 and Id like to take a 360 panoramic picture and convert it into a movie format. When I try to do this with the software the camera brings, it tell me that I need something of Quicktime. Where can I get it? Is there another way to do this?
(Sorry for my English)

You can download the QuickTime viewer free from Apple (http://www.apple.com/quicktime/)

There are other viewers, but the major alternative is a Java applet. The best known applet is PTViewer - freeware.

I prefer PTViewer because it allows more control than QT - unless you have a Mac. Also, other folks are likely to run into the same problem you had - not having QT installed and not knowing where to get it. Java applets need nothing installed for them to run.

PTV is not the easiest software to figure out, much like Panorama Tools (also by Helmut Dersch), but both are worth the effort.

If you are interested in panoramas, take a look at Panoguide (http://www.panoguide.com). It is getting a bit out of date, but still seems to be the best source of information panoramic.
