Our Picture This! assignment this month was Panorama and thanks, in part, to some recent technical leaps in digital cameras, we received an array of impressive panoramic images. Some were created with panoramic “sweep mode” (in-camera stitch), which has made creating a panorama as easy as pressing the button and sweeping the camera in front of the vista before you. Others were comprised of a series of images that were stitched together in software on a computer. While there was really no wrong way to do it, because the process has become so easy, many images looked very similar. On the next few pages, check out the grand panoramic images we felt really stood out from the pack.

If you stay interested in photography long enough, sooner or later you’ll own a Domke. Or two.

The Canon EOS Rebel T5 (a.k.a. the Canon EOS 1200D) is the newest model of Canon’s entry-level digital SLRs. The T5 features a new sensor with significantly higher resolution than the previous model (18 instead of 12MP) and minimal differences in the sensor dimensions. It also has a large LCD screen with higher resolution: it’s a 3-inch, rear display with 460,000 RGB dots. Compared to the higher resolution LCD screens on some rival DSLRs, the Canon Rebel T5’s new screen is only average. It’s also a fixed, mounted monitor instead of a swiveling/tilting display. The T5’s optical SLR viewfinder has a magnification of 0.8x and a field of view of 95 percent.
