Back in the photographic film days, either you used a swing lens camera or a specialized lens to capture panoramic images. When the age of digital photography came, you needed a tripod with a panoramic head to capture perfect panoramas, not to mention the time to stitch it in Photoshop. iPhone cameras made panoramic imaging easy. Just get your iPhone, add a set of arms that can swing and a little imagination and you can make great panoramas!
