Re: taking wide landscape shots
Cannon were the first to use PHOTO-STITCH and i am not aware of any other make as yet to have the abillity to stitch images on the camera itself. You may be able to buy or download some sort of software that will do the same thing

Do you mean make a panorama photo ? Many cameras have a panorama function that does this automatically - it is a special setting. To do it manually use any photo-editing software like Photoshop or free GIMP or free online such as SUMOPAINT. Put each photo on a separate layer and move them around and erase overlapping portions. When all of them appear nicely aligned flatten the layers. If his makes no sense to you do not worry there is automatic photo stitching software, also free - this page tells about it: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/panoramic-software.htm
However if you simply want to make a photo collage you can also do it manually, or use picasa software's create/ Picture Collage function. This arranges selected photos randomly as if on a table-top in one photo.
I will assume that you have already tried rotating the camera ninety degrees so that you take the shot in portrait format. Unless you can move the item outside to enable you to stand further back then your only option is to buy and fit a supplementary wide-angle lens to your camera or to use a different camera with a wider-angle lens than your camera has.
One other option is to take two photos and to then use special software to stitch them together (not ideal) or to take the best full length photo you can and then post supplementary photos showing the upper and lower halves of the desk.
It's all about the lens. There are special lenses for that. Or you can just take 3 or a 360 image around you and combine them together. I would recommend a tripod so the image is level and one is not too high and too low.
Sorry, unfortunately the H50 doesn't have in-camera panorama stitching... you'll have to just take a series of shots and use something along the lines of Adobe Photoshop Elements to stitch everything together - the closest I could find was a 16:9 setting within the camera, but that's just a close crop, it doesn't produce a true panoramic shot.
Please rate this solution if you've found it helpful! Thanks!!
You need to press the function/set button and click right until you reach the "Stitch Assist" icon. It looks like two overlapping boxs. Once you activate it, take photos, repositioning each shot to align with the last. When you are done, press function/set button again to end the process. After you download your images you will need to use the bundled software, ZoomBrowser, to stitch the images together. The option is in the Tools menu, "Stitch Photos".
To keep the video and images, transferr images to the computer:
If you have a Compact Flash media card connected to your machine, plug the card in the reader and follow the instructions of the software program to transfer to your favourite photo software.
Another method is connecting your camera to the computer using the supplied USB cable:
Install the camera software on the CD following the guides that came with the camera.
Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable connecting to the camera in the Digital Terminal under the Terminal Cover on the right of the computer (looking at the lens).
Transfer using your favourite photo software, or the software installed from the CD.
Next question, yes, you can get regular pictures from this, use the dial to select one of the modes to shoot photos. This information can be found in your manual too...
Auto - use this setting almost all the time. All settings, including flash will be automatically decided for you.
P - Program mode, ISO and shutter speed will be selected, all other settings you can override if you wish to set them.
Tv - Shutter priority, requires you to indicate how fast the lens iris will open. The Apperature (size of the iris) will be decided by the camera. all other settings you can override if you wish to set them.
Av - Apperature priority, requires you to indicate the size of the lens iris. The Apperature (size of the iris) will be decided by the
camera. all other settings you can override if you wish to set them.
M - Manual priority, requires you to set both the Shutter (iris speed), and shutter (iris size). All other settings you can override if you wish to set them.
The other dial settings are:
Portrait - automatic settings for still family/portrait photos
Landscape - automatic settings for landscape mountain or outside scenes
Night - automatic settings for low-light conditions
Sports - automatic settings for high-speed events (sports, plays, movement)
Slow speed - for making things look blurry like they are in action. Advanced setting.
Stitch - allows you to take multiple pictures of a wide scene and later stitch them together in to a panoramic scene
A panoramic photo on 35mm film is just cutting off the top and bottom. even if you can't set the camera that way, you can ask your local photo store to print any shot that way for you. Usually 2x the price of 4x6.
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.
