iPhone 5 Panoramic Product Photography

Using the iPhone 5 for panoramic product photography creates surprisingly high quality images. In Apple’s recent keynote when they launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone C a key figure mentioned stuck in my mind. The mention that the iPhone 5S created 28 mp images in the panorama mode intrigued me. I immediately set about shooting a few landscape panoramas with my iPhone 5. I was taken aback with the overall image quality and the seamless blend of the whole image, providing I kept the camera steady and performed a smooth sweep of the scene. I then did my very first panoramic product photography shoot with the iPhone 5 and I’m blown away with the results – see below. The video shows how easy this technique really is! Be sure to check out  the 100% sized image after the jump.
