Hey friends,

with the new panorama function in Apple’s iOS6 (fully supported by EyeEm) we’ve seen a dramatic increase in panoramas being shared! That’s why we thought we make a little selection of our favorite panoramas .

Some tips on shooting panoramas:

  • You don’t have to continue all the way to a 240 degree panorama. Cool thing about it: these panoramas are not as thin as full scale panoramas and look more like 16:9 wide-angle pics.
  • Flip your phone and take a vertical panorama.
  • Take a shot from right to left instead of left to right and see what comes out of it.
  • Turn your phone by 180 degrees while taking a panorama. The results can be pretty crazy.
  • Upload your photo to EyeEm with no format restrictions whatsoever.Horizontal panos, vertical panos, formats that don’t even exist yet – there’s a home for you here!
  • Feel inspired? Then go and shoot some panoramas with iOS 6 or use apps likePhotaf Panorama(Android) andPhotosynth(Winphone) to broaden your horizon.Add them to the albumPanoramaand discover more.

    Here’s some of our favorites from the past 2 weeks (make sure to view them in full res):
