Like many people, my family loves going to the movies. We save the trip to the theater for what I call “big screen movies”. You know, the really big action flicks that just don’t translate well to the small screen. Action heros, space ships, and fast cars are just some of the types that qualify for our movie budget.
Trying out a new theater close to us, I thought I would play with the panoramic feature on the iPhone before the start of the movie. We were there on a weekday for an afternoon show, so the crowd was lite. As it stitched the images together, the movie screen kept changing scenes. I tried several times, but I couldn’t get a single image on that frame. It did catch Christy, my oldest, as she was encouraging me to shoot the pano. The rest of the family had not entered the theater yet.
Panos are best done on a tripod to keep images even and straight, but the built-in iPhone feature makes it fun to experiment.
