Its very easy to shot these panoramas hand held

Not usually, no.
But when I use a tripod, the image is 100% perfect, no stitching erros at all.
Hand-held, there might be some itsy-bitsy misalignments, like with cable wires and other really fine detail. But you don't notice them unless you're viewing the image at 100%.

I agree the sweep piano on the Sony cameras is a great feature.
Readers should be aware that the sweep Panorama feature does reduce the resolution of the resulting panorama compared to a manual pano stitched with PC software.

I have used it several times and am pleasantly impressed by how well it accomplishes the task.

The usual precautions still apply in doing panoramas with Sony Isweep. E.g. Moving objects like waves etc. are problematical.

Lovely examples of the capabilities.
