Default a580 panorama mode

Just thought I'd share my thoughts on this. So far I've found it a fun mode but it seems to heavily crop the top/bottom of the image and a few times it hasn't stiched right. If it was an important shot I think I'd take separate shots and stich on the PC but for less important stuff it can be a useful time saver. Here's one I did last week from Westminster bridge over the Thames with the London Eye on the right. This has has a bit of HDR treatment to bring out the shadow detail and the highlight detail on the Eye itself which was gleaming in the bright sun:

Small (1/8 size) and medium (1/4 size). The full size version is 8192 pixels wide.
