October 5, 2012
I went for a very nice 22 mile bike ride today on the Minuteman Bike Path. It being October 5, that was probably the last ride of the year.
I had my iPhone 5 with me, and I took a few pictures with the new panorama mode.
One observation about the iPhone’s panorama mode: if you don’t hold your hand steady as you pan from left-to-right, you end up with jagged black holes in the picture edges. This isn’t some appearance of the Smoke Monster from Lost (minus 10 points for a badly dated reference); I apparently just can’t pan smoothly. Oops.
Another observation: if you squish the panoramic image to a more standard 4×6 ratio, it’s not quite as impressive.
Aren’t you glad I’m updating my blog more regularly?
