Aprmaejun,

I don't believe this is the solution Icritchi is looking for. The issue (that I also have) is that the panorama mode cannot be selected at all, no matter what setting the dial is on. I've read in one post on Yahoo that this is because the camera needs to have an Olypmus XD memory card (and not one from another manufacturer). Furthermore, the adapter that Olympus provides for a micro-sd card also does not allow you to use the panorama setting. This is complete bulls*it on Olympus's part. What were they thinking!?

When the mode dial (the dial just above the arrow keys) is set to auto (the one that looks like a little camera), press the menu key. You should see "panorama mode" in the bottom left corner. Use the arrow keys to select the mode.

The instructions for panorama mode should be on page 25 of your owner's manual.

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.

Panorama Feature on Olympus Stylus 840


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.

Put the camera (turned on) in normal shooting mode then press the ok/func button (middle of the navigation buttons) at the bottom will appear PROGRAM AUTO push right navigation button so the P illuminates not the AUTO press ok/func.

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.

Spin the selection wheel to "camera" mode. Press th middle "function/ok" button on the back. the first selection is AUTO or P "program". The default is AUTO...change it to PROGRAM. It needs to be in PROGRAM for it to work. I just figured it out...it works great. Good Luck!
