Ten Panoramas – Cherry Blossoms Edition

B&W Bears are back to upload the final updates to the Cherry Blossom series! Due to heavy stress at work, our blog has suffered from a wide gap between the previous post and the current one… our sincerest apologies to our dear readers.

The panoramic sceneries are breathtaking indeed, it was a beautiful sight in Japan during our trip in May where the cherry flowers were in full blossom. The mood and the composition are very much different from a Feature Post I had uploaded months ago, which were taken in Australia. I would recommend you to visit that page too, if you haven’t 🙂

This set of panoramas are special indeed, it shows how the Tamron 18-200mm E-mount performed when shooting panorama. Previously it has been said that this lens cannot do panorama. I can assure that in broad daylight the panorama function built-in the NEX cameras functions properly. However, in low light situations, the panorama function becomes difficult.
