Any camera can take panoramic photos, but you need a program to stich it together, I use a program called autostich. Just do a search for it and it is free to use.

Some camera helps you to stitch photos during the process of taking photos.
But S5500 does not provide such panorama function in its camera. So you have to take several overlap photos and stitch them with a computer program.
Remember to set the same exposure for all photos to be stitch. It is better to set to manual mode for all photo exposure and also the white balance mode.
It will be good to make sure that the view we are taking do not have too much highlight or shadow. Early morning & late afternoon are probably the best time.

The only cameras that I noticed had panaramic assistance in the camera were a few of the olympus cameras (c-765 and c-770). But like joel said you can get great software to help you do that. Good luck! I have the s5100 which is the american version of the s5500 and I love it! Very accurate colors and the 10x zoom is so much fun!
