Shooting with Panorama Assist

The use of a tripod makes it easier to frame a picture. When using a tripod to stabilize 
the camera during shooting, set Photo VR (

A122) to Off in the setup menu.

* The icon of the last scene selected is displayed.

Use the multi selector 

JK to select the 

direction in which images are joined, 
and press the 

k button.

• If necessary, apply flash mode (A46), self-timer 

(

A48), macro mode (A50) and exposure 

compensation (

A51) settings in this step.

• Press the k button to reselect the direction.

Frame the first portion of the 
panorama scene and take the

the center of the frame.

displayed as translucent.

• To cancel shooting, press the k button.

Take the next picture.

• Match the outline of the next image so
