I bought a Kodak Z712 IS a while back. Its got some really great features. I was checking out its panorama feature.
This camera lets you take 3 shots R2L or L2R. When you are done, the camera stitches them together. This is the first digital camera I've seen that does that.
Others, you upload your pictures, run some software and it stitches the pictures together, so you never really know what you've got until you've left the scene.
