Sony's Intelligent Sweep Panorama Mode



Good for: The easiest panorama shots ever

We rated Sony's Sweep Panorama mode as one of the coolest features in last year's point-and-shoot cameras, and for 2010 the company has been fine-tuning the technology. It still works the same way: You press the shutter button once, pan the camera from side to side, and then wait a second or two for the camera to create an instant, seamless panoramic image. But last year's Sweep Panorama mode had a problem with moving subjects--if anyone in your panoramic shot moved, they often looked like they were stretched across the frame. This year's Cyber-shot HX5V, Cyber-shot DSC-TX7, and Cyber-shot DSC-TX5 offer a revamped Intelligent Sweep Panorama mode that goes one step further, scanning the scene for moving subjects and making them appear still in the final panoramic image.
