Professional SLR features and performance in a compact.
When shooting expansive landscapes, tall buildings or large groups of friends, it can be difficult to pack the whole scene into a single panoramic shot.
Sweep Panorama lets you capture amazing wide angles; you just sweep your Cyber-shot camera over the scene and let Sweep Panorama stitch together multiple shots automatically to create one breathtaking wide panoramic photo.
