Panoramic photography has been around as long as photography itself, but its existence in the digital realm has been a rocky one. When Apple first introduced Quicktime VR back in the late 1990's, the best panoramas that could be produced amounted to nothing more than grainy thumbnail-sized images. Prior to Stitcher Unlimited 5.5, photographers could only use regular wide-angle lenses with this application, and this meant that they had to shoot many, many more shots to cover the entire 360° scene. If you are interested in creating panoramic photographs Brian Greenstone's in-depth review of the latest version of Stitcher Unlimited 5.5 provides a wide-angle overview of the subject.
