Sony W580 panorama images
With the Sony CyberShot DSC W580 it's easy to grab breathtaking wide-screen views of that landscape or city scene. Sweep Panorama mode shoots a high-speed burst of frames as you sweep the camera from side to side (or up and down!). Images are stitched together automatically by the camera to create one amazing panoramic image. Upload those memories to your favourite sharing sites on the web with a few mouse clicks. PMB Portable software inside the Sony CyberShot W580 camera lets you select and transfer photos and video clips to any web-connected PC: it’s great if you’re travelling and have a few minutes to drop into the nearest web café.
Sony CyberShot W580 photo settings
Not sure how to pick the perfect camera settings to suit a particular scene? Don’t worry, help is at hand with the Sony CyberShot W580. Intelligent Auto (iAUTO) mode automatically adjusts exposure and other camera settings for optimum results in a wide range of shooting situations. Dramatic landscapes, architectural shots, interiors and even family scenes can produce disappointing results when a scene gets cut off at the edges. The wide angle lens of the Sony DSC W580 lets you pack more into the picture without having to stand further back from the subject.
