Jared: https://www.google.com/maps/views/profile/117565688403001302622 Has some of the most spectacular panoramas I’ve seen. I was looking to see what equipment he uses and found some older panoramas with exif data still: https://plus.google.com/u/1/photos/117565688403001302622/albums/5947739153343402321/5947739152308789202?e This seems to use a 43rds olympus E-410 and the olympus 8mm f3.5 fisheye. Pretty stunning for not only a tiny sensor, but a really old sensor as well…Also, I see some newer panoramas mentioning olympus, so I think a lot of his panoramas are taken with 43rds gear.

The first PEN looking compact camera has one unique feature: It’s the first camera with a 5 axis on sensor stabilization. Combine this with the super 25-600mm zoom range and you will have a great combination!
