Just tried the new camera in the panoramic mode - not bad. All I have to do is hold down the shutter button and move in the direction you want and then remove your finger when you want to stop. I'll have to do this in the boat in the middle of the lake!!
BTW this is not my new camera, this is Rejean's new one - paid $78 for it at Walmart. My camera doesn't do this. His old camera died too. Everything happens at once.
