Panorama City

The Fujifilm X-T2 mirrorless camera has many outstanding features, one of which is the Panorama setting. Once you press the shutter and sweep the camera across the scene, it stitches the shots together seamlessly.  These images were made hand-held using an 18-55mm lens and are fun to create.

  1. I love panoramic pictures, with these pictures I especially like the “Dreaming Big” and the “Sunset Skyline” very beautiful! Well done, Jane! 🙂

  2. Nice pictures. I’m happy with my Fuji camera too!

  3. Wonderful images Jane. I do like panoramic photography and you’ve done these incredibly well.

  4. I’m definitely drawn to the detail of the sky in the B/W image.

  5. These are marvellous Jane. I have taken some panorama shots with the panorama setting on my iPhone and am always excited by the results. Have a great weekend.:-)

  6. The B&W image has that film noir feeling. Super nice work.

  7. Successful experimental engagement with the city and you didn’t even need a mirror!

  8. Hi, Jane. I haven’t tried the panorama feature yet! Thanks for the tips. Beautiful shots!

  9. These are really wonderful, Jane!
    Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

  10. Handheld! That is seriously cool, Jane!

  11. How fantastic is that great technology and great images

  12. Hi Jane! Hope you’re doing well. Your panorama shots are fantastic! I love the way you capture the vibrance of cities through a single shot.

    • Hi Cheryl, Thank you! I had some fun with these panoramas. Glad you like them– you and Basil could put this feature to good use in your travels. I’m doing well as we dive into the holiday season. Thanks!

  13. So much fun is to be had – the new cameras are amazing, and so are you, Jane. Always interesting to see what you can do with your toys!

  14. Stunning captures, Jane! Amazing what the new cameras all can, a very good performance indeed.

  15. Terrific ode to your favorite city Jane – I’m partial to SF wide which really gives one a sense of place. Good to see you having fun with your new “toy”! Still sticking to one lens with it?

    • Thanks, Tina. These were fun and interesting to shoot. I highly recommend mirrorless especially as a back saving measure. Next are some prime lenses from Fuji’s f/2 series- 35mm and 90mm are on the list. Great glass.

  16. great shots Jane….love the scope of them….great camera….and EYE to go with it!!!

  17. Panoramic views have always intrigues me… where in the world did you have to position yourself to capture these?

  18. All this time with the Fuji cameras and I have not tried this yet. Look great and thanks for sharing.

  19. In your hands with your eye ,miracles can happen as demonstrated in these fabulous photos.

  20. That’s a nice feature. On the Olympus I have Live Composite, which makes star trails and light trails so easy. One press to take the base photograph, second press starts the camera recording only changes in light. It’s interesting to watch Live View as the cars drive by

  21. The quality of these shots is amazing. I almost felt as if I were reading them left to right – so much for the eye to take in. Just realized the shot of the Golden Gate at the top of your post is also panoramic. Great work!

  22. Amazing panoramas, Jane. Very seamless and very well done. I’ve never had a camera with that panorama feature, expect my smartphone, lol. I have taken panoramas with my Canon camera and then tried stitching the photos together manually, with varying degrees of success. Keep taking those panoramas 🙂

    • Hi Mabel, I can never get the IPhone panorama to work, but I have done many on my Nikon using a tripod and stitching together like you. The Fuji sure is simpler, Glad you like the results. Thanks very much and hope all is well down under.

  23. Wow… Its amazing. I am in love especially with the Sunset Skyline.

  24. Wow, these are fantastic 🙂 . I have a Fuji Finepix Compact which has Panorama mode, but I have struggled to figure out how to use it. So far all my efforts are useless :-/ .

  25. Handheld? I’m so utterly impressed! Beautiful shots of a gorgeous city.

  26. Jane, this camera seems like a lot of fun , as your images present it, love them along with these great quotes, they are just inspiring

  27. Wow, amazing set of photos 😍💕 Incredible field of view and great quality

  28. Impressive tool! Love the Sunset Skyline.

  29. Now that is a very nifty feature! And beautifully executed I might add, Jane!

  30. These images are beautiful Jane 🙂 Believe it or not with all of the Fuji cameras I have been shooting with over the years I have never tried the panorama mode. I think after viewing your images I might have to start using that mode.

    • Hi Joe, Thanks so much! I’m the same way with a lot of features but I was reading a good Fuji manual and the chapter on it got me wondering since he was raving about it. Let me know how it goes– it’s fun when it works. 🙂

  31. Fantastic work, Jane. You have raised the bar exponentially for the rest of us. “Dreaming Big” is a beauty.

  32. Awesome shots Jane, could see a few places that used to be areas I hung out in. Good to see your work again.

  33. Lovely! I used to use the panoramic feature on an old pre-digital fuji automatic camera years ago, but the downside was that once you set the film as panoramic you had to do all the shots that way otherwise it was very expensive to process. I have used the feature on digital cameras since, with varying results. You have reminded me to try this on my new(ish) camera!

    • Hi Jude, That must have been painful, pre-digital– interesting, I’m sure. I think I used to string single shots together to mimic panos back then. 🙂 Digitally, they are fun to try and for me, there was a lot of trial and error. Glad these got you thinking and that you enjoyed them. Thank you.

  34. “The panorama-city is a ‘theoretical’ (that is, visual) simulacrum, in short a picture, whose condition of possibility is an oblivion and a misunderstanding of practices.”

    • Hi Mihran, Had to do a little reading of Michel de Certeau to put your quote into context. Interesting ideas in his book, “The Practice of Everyday Life” with regard to urbanism and city living. Thanks for your interesting comment which led to my learning something new.

  35. Beautiful images Jane! Thanks for sharing. 😊

  36. Awesome photos! Amazing quality for hand held.

  37. Fujifilm X-T2 cool is that new for you Jane….your captures look wonderful…smiles hedy 😀

  38. Beautiful Panos Jane! The auto-stitch is just awesome – want! Ooops, purchased a 10-20mm Sigma today…

  39. That is a nice feature! Your wonderful photos prove it.

Love to hear what you think...
