Panoramas are photographed by rorating the camera in a fixed position. To avoid any parallax errors, the fixed point should be controlled. This can be accomplished with 2-axes panheads (above) designed for this purpose. Many panoramas are, in fact, hand-held. The images are stitched with one of several programs, most of which now will automatically place and allign proporly photographed images. The example is from Australia.
Panoramas range from two images to over a hundered (below),
