While testing out the Samsung Galaxy SIII in November one of the cool features that I quickly liked about the phone was the panoramic photo option. The phone literally stitches pictures together as you pan to the left or right and depending on how you were holding the phone you could even make a panorama that went up and down. As you pan your phone, guidelines show up on the screen which help you hold the phone at consistently the same level so that the picture will stitch together the best. I found it a little hard to do at first but if you were off by a certain amount the phone wouldn’t even take photos until you held it in the right spot again, so with this feature after a few tries it taught you how to hold it properly.

The following photos were all taken with the Galaxy SIII:

I have fun taking the panoramas with this phone and can’t wait to take more. Its a fun way to see a place from a different view. What is one of your favorite features on your phone?

Here is a cool up and down pic just for fun, taken in Cape Town South Africa.
