One great thing about making panoramas is that you can extend the capabilities of your camera in some very significant ways. This panorama here was shot with the camera on my Nexus S phone. The panorama was made from 6 individual photos which I uploaded to Panomonkey.com to process into a single panoramic photo.
As you can see, the nearest part of the image (the teeth) are in focus, as well as the most distant parts of the image (Prague skyline). Additionally, all parts of the image have good exposure and contrast. This panorama could not have been created using even a very expensive camera in a single shot. By using a very modest camera (my phone!), taking multiple photos, and using the powerful software inside Panomonkey, I’ve created a nice-looking image very easily and without any fancy tools!
