The Wide View

Sure a panorama setting on a prosumer or professional camera can be viewed as a gimmick but I couldn’t help but try it out. I have to admit, I’m impressed with Fuji’s implementation on the X-T1 after evaluating the feature while traveling in Europe and Ecuador this past year. I even attempted to recreate the in-camera magic by combining 3 panned photos, taken on my D800E, in Photoshop CS6 using the Photomerge feature. Unfortunately for the purist deep inside me, I found the method implemented by Fuji to be much quicker by comparison and still very accurate.

Here are a few examples taken with the Fuji X-T1: followed by an image produced by combining 3 photos taken with the D800E Photoshop’s Photomerge feature:
