I shot this in three shots today and stitched using the Panorama Maker 3.5 that comes with the FZs. It was hand held no tripod. I thought it turned out pretty well except for the exposure of one area of the sky is a little off. I shot it at the lower image quality as I was trying it to see if it made any difference in the image quality. I still don't know. The first shot is a reduced version of the pano. To see a full size shot click on the thumbnail and then click on the image you get to enlarge it. I thought the image quality was pretty good.

Very picturesque. I generally also shoot in the highest compression mode. I cannot see a visible difference to the "super fine" mode. The quality difference only becomes obvious if you do a lot of post processing from my experience.

Very nice panorama Ted. I've never used the higher compression rate. I'm always scared that one in a million shot will come along. Probably no chance of that but it's always in my mind. What do you think the advantages are when using it?......Don

Very nice! Color is great. The sky reflecting in the little pond is nice.

I cannot see the difference between the Super fine and the Standard (high compression) setting, even when closely cropped and enlarged. This has been true with any of the cameras I owned, including the FZ20 and FZ30, as well as my current beloved Konica Minolta Maxxum 5D with the Tamron 28-300 lens (an image stabilized, ultra-zoom DSLR with superb image quality for about $750 total). Maybe I am missing something, but I am not able to the JPEG artifacts which are supposed to be there at the higher compression rate. Therefore I am shooting at 6MP Standard quality. Main reason is space savings. Images are about 1.2MP each. Since I am shooting hundreds of pictures per month, the space is a factor for me, but it might not be for you. I can still get superb 13x19 prints out of the "Standard" Quality pictures.

Thanks everyone for looking and the nice comments.
It was just the camera, no wide angle. It was a stitch of 3 shots.
