Default 360 degree real views

I am interested in purchasing a digitalcamera for the size but I am most interested in the photo stitch feature. I want a camera that will allow me to do 360 views for my site. Which camera comes with the software to stitch the photos and is there an example posted on the net where I can see how it looks? I have been looking at the Pentax Optio S and the Canon Powershot 230. I also want something that is compact and these two fit the bill. The thing is I need to be sure that it can do what I want before I buy and no one really knows in the stores.

In case you are not sure I want to be able to take a multitude of shots have them merged and then pos it to my site so people can view a room seamlessly. Like on msn auto when you view the interior or exterior of a car.

Pretty much any camera can be used to make 360 panos, however it will be easier with a wider lens and manual settings. Built in "pano" features are pretty much bogus. Though it is getting out of date, Panoguide (http://www.panoguide.com/) is still a good starting point for information panoramic.

IMHO, the best 360 tours can be found at Big Ben's site - http://www.path.unimelb.edu.au/~bern...ual/index.html
