has casio abandoned the coupling shot mode? it doesn't appear to be in any of the newer models. i never use it for its intended purpose, but it still is loads of fun using it.

so by the transitive property, coupling shot rules

A lot of people seemed to like the coupling shot and are disappointed that it was removed. My only thought on why they removed it was support time. It is something a beginner plays with and it probably took a lot of support time to explain why people weren't always getting good coupling shots. Other than that it doesn't make much sense removing it.

It isn't something I would use much. It is rare that someone isn't around to take a group shot for you. And the shots you posted could be done just as easily in Photoshop with some feathering. And with a lot more control of the stitch point.

But the cameras are cluttered with so many best shot modes that one more wouldn't make a difference. I see no reason to remove something that might sell some cameras unless they were getting too many support calls and decided the economic balance favored dropping the feature.

I have been emailing Casio on and off for about a year and was told that it was a marketing decision.
