How To: Take Panoramic Photos with the Galaxy S III Camera

I remember the first time I saw the Samsung E715–it was absolutely marvelous. A flip phone with not only an LED flash + camera combo, but an OLED front facing display.

There has been plenty of hardware progression, but engineers on the software side of things have done some marvelous things in their own domain. Most notably in the form of seamlessly merging multiple captures into one panoramic photo. You can harness this feature on the Galaxy S III to take stunning panoramic photos. Here’s how:

1. Navigate to your camera, then hit the Cog icon > Shooting mode > Panorama:

2. Now aim 90 degrees right of where you want the center of your image, hit the shutter button and proceed to sweep to the left (or vice versa)

3. Your Galaxy S III will automatically frame your subsequent shots in a light blue outline so that you stay on track as you make the panoramic sweep.

4. Once you have done a full 180 degree sweep, the Galaxy S III will compose a panorama from the images you just captured:

The end result should look something like this:

Remember, you can take vertical pictures as well:
