First Look: How to take panorama photos in iOS 6 on the iPhone 5

1:13 /

The camera app's newest feature takes clean, easy panoramic shots, and iPhone 4S and 5 owners can take advantage of it. Scott Stein shows you how it's done.

-Hi. I'm Scott Stein. The iPhone 5 has a lot of new features under its hood but some of them come with iOS 6 including Panorama, an interesting new way to take Panoramic photos baked into the camera app. Now that's available in iOS 6 and you'll be able to use it if you're an iPhone 4S user or if you've got an iPhone 5 and how do you use it? Well, it's very simple, I'll show you how. Panorama is located in the option section of the camera app and it's dead easy to find, you just tap up here, panorama is right below the grid and HDR and to use it, you just tap it. Now, if you've never taken a panoramic photo before, you may not understand the idea that what it's doing is capturing a sweeping of images of everything around you, but Apple made it dead simple. You basically follow the directions on screen, you press the camera button to get started and then you start to turn and follow the arrow's directions. Don't go back wards or it will just register whatever you've taken as a photo. So, there you go, you've shot your Panoramic photo ready to share with people. Before [unk], it's gonna be a very long and stretched out but extremely cool to look at. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look at how to take panoramic photos using the new iPhone 5.
