      Waiving from Hayling Island...

      Searching around the other day I found a few applications for taking panoramic pictures from my phone. You need a steady hand and gentle pace to allow the camera to focus as you go, but I moved the phone up and down a little whilst taking this picture on the beach at Hayling Island on Wednesday...



      I've reduced the photo a little to fit more easily on your screens. The focus was pretty good otherwise. I did take some other photos, but it was hard to see the screen in the sun.

      Thanks, a tricky one to reproduce though.

      I should of taken my tripod but was too worried as I was playing with the app first.

      For those who are observant, the Isle of Wight appears to be under the cloud. The fairground is on the left, beside the Car Boot Sale.

      The application for that photo was "Camera ICS".

      There are a few others that allow you to take panoramic pictures. This just seemed to produce that better result for myself.

      The original image is 2420x568 pixels. That was on the default setting 8MPixels (highest for the phone) & "High" for JPEG quality. The JPEG quality can go higher, but I'll play with that another time.

      This is another I took a few moments later. I've reduced it by 50%. The Sun popped out to say 'hello' in the middle of me taking this shot:
