Question about Digital Cameras

2 Answers

I just purchased a stylus 850sw and I am having a time of it getting the Panorama mode to go to any of the other options other than PC... does this camera need to be set up in a particular way to accept in camera mode 1 or 2. Yes I do have the Olympus M2gb XD picture card as suggested. Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated as the owners maual is a bit weak. Carole carolebarnett@hotmail.com

    I have the exact same problem. Have purchased the same memory card (xd-picture card m2gb) and formatted it aswell. However when i try the panorama setting only "combine in pc" is available. Any help would be much appreciated.

Just called up technical support and got the solution:

Go to "camera" mode, Press "ok/function" then change the setting from "Auto" to "P". It should then work. Shame that's not in manual.

Same problem... very frustrating... the advanced manual offers nothing... just assumes that you can access the 'panorama modes 1 and 2'

surely not all our cameras are buggered.. but surely if its in the manual it should be doable.

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.

I have the Olympus C-4000 Zoom and am having difficulty getting into the panorama mode which I really need for business. What am I not doing right.? Johnston. Spain.


First of all you need to be sure you are using a memory card that is an Olympus card. If it is a non-Olympus card then the panorama option will be disabled to you.

Then go to Menu - Mode Menu - Camera tab - Panorama option and select right arrow. This should enable the panorama mode for the camera.

Blurry lens after using it underwater


Sadly that symptom indicates that the camera is broken.

The device's seal protects both from the condition that you are seeing, but also protects the internal circuits from moisture.

If water has gotten inside the camera, I would pursue returning it and getting a replacement from the company.

We can get in to the panorama menu : we cannot get to combine in camera 1 or 2 camera stylus 850sw HELP! yep, i can get to the panorama mode because i bought the olympus card, but i also can only combine...


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. You should now be able to select panorama in the normal shooting mode menu press func/ok then select combine in camera then select ok/func.
Good luck- I fretted over this for two days till finally getting it-and you the manual does not help!!!!!!!!!

Cannot select "camera menu" from the Top Menu


If the camera is in Auto mode those items cannot be selected because the camera is already using factory default settings and they cannot be changed, If you press the Ok button and change to P mode then you will be able to access all of those menu settings and make any changes you wish to the camera settings.

I have new olympus 850SW with the required Olympus xD picture card, 1 GB & can't access the in camera panorama...I know I did it once but it is grayed out now - only pano on PC available...I've read...


To access the panorama mode in the camera you need to be in P mode.

To set the P mode you need to press the Ok button right arrow to P for Program Auto and press Ok. Then as long as you are using an Olympus xD card you should be able to go to menu and highlight the Panorama option.

make sure the camera is in P mode for panorama... press the ok button and change from auto to p mode. also for panorama, it does require an Olympus xD card.

I just got the olympus 850 sw and one of the reasons I got it was for the panorama feature. I have the right xd card to unlock it, but I can only get the pc option to work. What setting does it need to be...


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!

I have a Stylus 850 SW and cannot figure out from the manual how to get to the panorama mode


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!?
