Question about Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera

Panoramic Pictures My new camera will not let me access the panoramic picture mode. I have done all the manual says, which is to insert a memory card. Said card is empty and takes normal pictures perfectly, but not panoramic. I have tried changing the quality, and different scenes all to no avail. Please help!!

Re: Panoramic Pictures

If I remember my last Olympus camera it would only work in Panorama mode with an official Olympus memory card. No third party cards would enable that feature. My instructions read "An Olympus xD-Picture Card is required for panorama shooting." If you are using an official Olympus xD-Picture card, there may be a problem with your camera.

How do I take panoramic photos on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3, have done it before, but forgotten how to set it up.

Enter "setup" mode, and switch from "picture" or "video" to "panoramic". Take a picture, move the camera, and take another picture. Follow the on-screen instructions when you have finished taking the segments.

My olympus e volt 500 will not display image when in shoot mode

There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

Can I only view a panoramic series if I print out the photos? No way to view it digitally on computer? Thanks, rj

You can view panoramic pictures on the computer. If your panoramic pictures have not been combined, their is software that can do that for you. Here is a free panorama stitching software from microsoft that you can try:

How to use the panoramic function in my olympus 1050 SW.

I won't say it's in the manual.

Turn the selector to the square "camera" icon (just above AUTO).

Press the Menu button, select Panorama. Choose Combine In Camera 1.

Point your camera at the left or right side of whatever you are taking the picture of and press the shutter button. A flashing icon appears with arrows pointing left-and-right. Pan the camera left or right (your choice) as if to take the next shot in the panorama ... a blinking diamond appears and then a square box - keep moving the camera until the diamond enters the square box, the camera will automatically take the next photo. Move the camera again in the same direction, another diamond and square box appear and the photo is automatically taken as before.

To take another panorama shot, repeat this entire procedure, beginning with the Menu selection.

How to activate panorama?

Panorama shooting lets you create a panoramic picture, using the OLYMPUS
Master software from the provided CD-ROM. An Olympus xD-Picture Card is required for Panorama shooting. If the card is a Fuji xD card then the panorama feature would be disabled to you.

Message Unable to use card.

I've seen quite a few problems regarding memory cards recently.

Most of the time it is the card at fault as it just does not store data anymore. I haven't yet determined if it's time/ use/ temperature or handling which is causing the faults.

Can you describe what happened prior to the card not working as it may help solve future problems?

Some older cameras cannot use the newer - larger cards (even though they fit), and some cards won't record panoramic data.

Try resetting the camera first. - Remove batteries and card for 10 minutes, then reload them.
If you normally use a PC to download the pictures, see if you can access the pictures from there.

If half have gone, or are corrupted, it's time for a new memory card. Films were 1 shot, now cards only last a few years, but still saves you £ / $ in the long term.

If the new card doesn't work either, you will need to re-install the camera software (or Driver). This should be on a CD or you can go to their website to download it free.

Thanks for using Fixya! If this solves the problem, please rate as such. Thanks.

Exactly how do I take a panoramic picture? Thanks

it depends on what brand camera-canon uses stiching in scene mode where you line up shots and camera assists-most cameras have this mode under scenes-olympus is the best brand for pana with a xd memory card-really have been doing it since film

Panorama in Generic SM Card

I don't believe you "need" the Oly code--it merely makes things easier by showing you a shadow edge view of the scene you just photographed to make alignment easier. You can do the same thing visually by sighting on a particular object on the right side (if you're moving from left to right) of the picture you're taking and including that site at the same up/down location in the next frame and so on. I previously had a Kodak digital and there were no codes or "assists" and I got some great panos.
