When panoramic shots go wrong

The panoramic function on your camera is a great way to take shots of landscapes or scenery, but such shots can also go horribly wrong.

Panoramic shots taken on one's smartphone or compact camera usually consist of multiple shots digitally stitched together.

So when a moving object or fidgety person is the subject, the photos that get stitched together might turn out distorted.

Strange defects like elongated limbs, missing heads or even separated body parts can show up, and pets that cannot stay still might look extra-long or short in the photo.

Your friends might also end up with cyclops eyes or twin heads if the photo is not captured properly.
