WB2000(TL350) Function – 02. Panorama Action

Following is a panorama action shot from WB2000 digital camera.

Hi there! This is Amanda.

Having fun with the WB2000 camera? :-) Today, I want to go over the Panorama function. The Panorama function on the WB2000 offers more than the traditional Panorama function. Want the details? Let’s go over it one by one. First, let’s take a look at how to set the Panorama function. Set the mode dial to SCN mode.

Use the scroll to move to Panorama mode.

With the shutter pressed down, slowly move the camera to capture the scene you want. A line indicates that the shooting is underway.

Well, this alone is not that different from other cameras with Panorama function. So then, how is the Panorama Action function different from an ordinary function? If the Panorama function typically connects a widespread landscape, Panorama Action captures the movement of people and objects with the landscape as background and expresses in one screen. Coming back to the main point, let’s take a look at setting the Panorama Action function. Click on the Panorama Action icon on the Scene mode.

Do you see the icon in the red circle on the right hand side? This indicates that the camera is set to Panorama Action mode.

If you are ready, slowly follow the moving object.

Voila! The result! Isn’t it fascinating? Wasn’t it so easy?!

For Panorama Action, be mindful of the following three things:

  1. Outcome is better if the moving object moves at constant speed.

  2. If possible, move the camera in one direction. Moving the camera up and down will not work so well, don’t you think?

  3. With Panorama mode, shooting options will be limited.

So, how was it? Are you dying to try out the Panorama function? Get your friends or family involved for more fun! My third post will be on ‘Smart Filter.’ Until then, say cheese~
