Camera App version 2016.715.20.0 for PC and 2016.715.21.0 for Mobile

Applicable Rings:  Fast Store update.

Today we are rolling out an update to the Windows Camera app that brings a highly requested feature from Windows Insiders: Panorama mode. Because the Camera app is a UWP, this capability extends to PCs and tablets in addition to phones. We have tested the new Panorama mode works with the Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Lumia 550, Lumia 650, Surface Pro 4, Surface 3, and Surface Book. If you are using other devices, let us know how this works for you and any issues you hit! 

To take a panorama, switch into the panorama mode by tapping the Panorama button. Tap it again to start capturing, and then, starting from the left side of your subject, rotate the device slowly from left to right across the scene.

Here are a few tips for capturing panoramas:

The new Panorama mode is great for capturing sweeping landscapes or extra-wide family reunion photos. Here are a few nice panoramas we captured recently:
