Confessions of an iPhone 5s panorama addict

6

DPReview editor Barnaby Britton spent his weekend taking pictures on the new Apple iPhone 5s, which among other refinements, features a new camera, larger sensor, built-in filter effects and a unique two-color flash. It also offers an improved panorama mode with adaptive "live" metering across the frame — which Britton was especially impressed by. 

Read his editorial to learn why he can't stop shooting panoramas with his new iPhone 5s, and see more examples, including direct comparisons with the iPhone 5.

It will be real sad if they remove the panorama feature.

I'll most probably buy the 5S just to use as a sweep panorama camera, simply because no other camera or phone can do the job better than it. The Sony 360-sweep pano cameras (which I have used) is also lagging behind it.

Hopefully, a third party manufacturer will quickly come out with a tripod-mounted auto-rotating accessory.

I am addicted to sweep panos too! With the iphone 5S, I can stitch 2 or 3 panos too. And that's great.

Well, Apple has slowed down quite a bit in the last 2 years. The last truly gamechanging / leading / revolutionary phone they had was the iPhone 4.

Impressive to say the least; still no motivation to get one since I refuse to use a smartphone (personal choice). :)
