Panorama Feature on Olympus Stylus 840

I just cannot get the panorama feature on my Olympus Stylus 840 to work. I'm using it with an Olympus brand 2GB picture xD card, which is what the manual and the Olympus website online both said it would need to take panorama pictures. I tried to search for solutions online, and I've tried all of them. I've even tried setting it to P mode and the panorama feature in my menu is still whited out. Help! Panorama feature is not working on my Olympus Stylus 840. I'm using it with an Olympus brand 1GB picture xD card (type M) as mentioned in the manual. Please some one help me!

Forget the in-pano function and use a free stitching program off the internet. When shooting panoramas, you need to be in aperature priority or manual mode so as to keep the exposure consistant, especially going into the sun or away from it in your pictures. Although this is good practice, it is not needed for a few stitch programs as they average out all the exposures and make the entire pic uniform. This works pretty good in all but the most demanding exposure swings.

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.

Xd card type


A Fuji card can be used in the camera; the only function that will be disabled is if you wish to take panorama shots with the camera. Panorama in the Olympus cameras is proprietary therefore in order to shoot panorama shots Olympus requires that you specifically use their xD picture card. Otherwise the Fuji card will work just fine.

I have the Olympus SP-570UZ. I can't get the panoramic function to work. I am using a 2mb xd-picture card.


In order to use the panorama feature in any Olympus camera the xD card you are using must be an Olympus card. If it is any other make of card panorama will be disabled.

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 to copy panorama feature?


The panorama feature cannot be copied, it is 'firmware' of sorts that is integrated into the card itself. Olympus does offer several types of 'special' firmware in their branded SmartMedia cards (I believe there was a special one for printing T-Shirts and Mugs and the like....don't recall exactly, but did have a special supplement when I bought my C-1400XL).
