A unique feature of the Sony W350 is its Sweep Panorama mode which can grab a series of images as you turn the camera and automatically stitch them into a wide panoramic image. Here’s an example, showing a 268 degree sweep atop the Skyline Gondola balcony where we take our real-life resolution test photos.
It’s a doddle to create these images, with the camera guiding you through the sweep, and automatically making up for any wobbles as it stitches them together. There may be some stitching errors if you look closely, but it remains a fun and useful facility, that’s capable of impressive results with ease.

The following images were taken with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W350. The W350 was set to 14M JPEG quality, Auto White Balance and Multi metering. Optical Image Stabilisation was enabled for all these handheld images.
The individual exposure mode, file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image. A number of the images can be downloaded in their original format; click the photo to access the files (where available) at flickr.

The crops below are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100% and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS4 as JPEGs with the Very High quality preset, while the resized images were made in Photoshop CS4 and saved with the default High quality preset. The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image.
