Nokia N8 gets a pretty impressive panorama feature

There’s little doubt that Nokia N8 is a pretty great photography tool, but one feature it notably lacks out of the box is Panorama shots. Luckily the Finns are going to add that with a separate app that should hit the Ovi store soon.

In the sample above it’s incredibly hard to detect where the three stitches are (the panorama was created from four shots and measures 4306 x 1280 pixels at full stretch).You can check out the full-res version over at Flickr.

When you zoom in to pixel level, the image sharpness is hardly spectacular, and there are some evident compression artifacts but I’m hoping they get it straight before they release it in the Ovi Store. I’m also hoping that the app will be available to a wider range of devices and not just the N8.
