Sony Ericsson releases Panorama App for Xperia X10

Sony Ericsson release Panorama App for Xperia X10Sony Ericsson has released a brand new app for the Xperia X10 called ‘Panorama beta’. The app allows you to create an easy panoramic picture by selecting a direction, pressing the capture button and then panning the camera to shoot the photo. This is a ‘Sony Ericsson Beta’ app so it is still work in progress, however from our play time it is very good and well worth downloading.

It is currently available on the Android Market, search for ‘panorama beta’. However, it is only available on X10 handsets running stock Android 2.1 firmware. It will not work for those running custom ROMs. We could also not find the app using our Xperia arc and Xperia PLAY which means that for now it is only visible to the Xperia X10. However, if you want to give it a try you can always download the apk here.

Update: zdzihu from xda-developers has released a fix that allows this app to be used on custom ROMs. Click here for more details.

broken link?

it works well and a good idea, however whats the point if it’s only available for 2.1, when it’s supposed to get the 2.3 upgrade soon :S, perhaps they’ll allow other xperia after the beta testing is completed?

Very good app… Easier than attempting to connect the side of the last photo with the view of the next… Just swipe your phone through the air, what a good idea… Hopefully they’ll release it, after beta testing, for 2.3.

Off course they will release this to Gingerbread. Or do you think that they would release a version of such an interesting program like this to use only within 2 months? By the way, I can’t download it.

Just cant believe its camera doesnt include the function of panoramic pics

10 njfpolyr6 June 11, 2011 at 3:17 PM

Yes! this is what i am talking about…they should release this function a year ago.

11 David June 11, 2011 at 4:26 PM

wow works great!

12 burdie June 11, 2011 at 4:40 PM

SE Guys, please spend your time for 2.3.X, dateline is approaching

13 Damian June 11, 2011 at 5:34 PM

@burdie, I hope they release it and that we can trust them this time…

14 Issac June 11, 2011 at 8:20 PM

I think that they add this app in the 2.3 update, considering that they’ll leave us with stock android camera.

Very nice. Downloaded as soon as it was out. I’m a little surprised they didn’t do this before. Should be fun testing its progress through beta stage… And by the way, SE, if you want me to test your 2.3.3 in beta for you I’d be happy to do it 😉

20 MisterG June 13, 2011 at 8:19 AM

Really cool app… Panorama shooting had never been so easy… Quality is quite good either…

21 MixMaster June 13, 2011 at 11:04 AM

excellent app. I hope to see it included in the Gingerbread update as a final and better application. Well done SE. And thanks for the news. i wouldn’t have noticed it without you sharing the news. Keep them coming!

Looking forward to the olympics in LONDON next year ///M

I installed the app and tried it sometimes, but i get vertical stripes at the point where the phone connects the different shots. They get wider when i move the phone faster and smaller when i move it slowly.
But it’s a beginning and a beta so i just wait for the next release.

25 Michael June 14, 2011 at 12:47 PM

I think it is simply AWESOME!

26 x10 warrior June 14, 2011 at 3:42 PM

good… easy to shoot. 🙂

27 Tommy June 15, 2011 at 8:14 AM

Can’t believe it’s still a beta, had the same app on my c905 cyber shot.

28 co ck and ba ll s June 15, 2011 at 12:29 PM

tallooooola get you rocks on! give me the app, i need this shit sorting out, wow

29 shibby June 15, 2011 at 7:52 PM

ah c905 was a great cameraphone.
nice app but had to dl the apk from here, couldn’t find it on the market…
seems to work fine even though beta.

where is Fact is Fact?..

31 PeteM June 18, 2011 at 9:56 PM

Anyone else tried this on X10 MiniPro? Didn’t want to install on mine.

32 =NoXiouS= July 4, 2011 at 11:00 PM

I finally hour a chance to put this app through the paces this past weekend and WOW! Works great, but I also experience some vertical “banding” on most shots. A few turned out just right without any banding at all. I got a shot where 3 mountain valleys connect and the photo goes from southeast all the way to straight north. Incredible stuff and I hope it gets even better for full release.

Hey Guys,
I’m working on a new panorama photography service and was wondering if I could pick your heads on your views of existing mobile phone based panorama creation tools such as this one released by Sony or Microsoft’s Photosynth for iOS. Would be grateful if you could take a few minutes and fill out the survey below…Please substitute Panorama Beta app for Xperia X10 instead of Photosynth in the questions..
Best Regards,

35 CoffeeBeans August 28, 2011 at 9:11 AM

After the Gingerbread update this app wont work…Although Mediascape is not being missed, will surely look forward to Panorama..The app is by far the second coolest thing SE have done with X10i..

36 alberto February 26, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Is there a version for xperia x10 on android 2.3?
