Panoman | Nokia Application
Life is finally in 360 degree mode! Literally too! Ever wondered how beautiful life will look like if you can capture what’s all around you, in front of you and behind you and even at both the sides at the same time? I know it is kinda hard to even imagine this but it is now possible to have a third eye with your Nokia smartphones in hand and this superb and creative application installed in it. Today I am publishing the most sensational and intelligent application ever built for any kind of symbian OS based 3rd edition smartphones. It is called Panoman and it lets you do things that no other application ever can. Let me get into the details real fast.
Panoman creates a 360 degree panorama with your mobile camera phone in your hands. It’s fast and easy and the engine is virtually a einstein itself. All you have to do is take the phone in your hands and rotate yourself to a complete circle and voila! the scan engine intelligently captures, generates and extracts you a flat image of your surroundings in a single picture. This application snaps the scenery at real time and lets you enjoy the image with true clarity, no noise or blur or whatsoever. It also lets you edit your panorama on the go just after you have captured it. Not only that with Panoman you will be able to watch a landscape mode preview of the image that will be fetched if you finalize it. This version of Panoman is 3 and it also has a major improvement in its heap size or in other simple words it will let you snap around 12 frames in one rotating session!
It is quite obvious that if the Sun is in front of you and you rotate yourself then there is a strict possibility that your end panorama based image will have a dark side and a bright side right? Wrong! Panoman also have automatic and manual image exposure correction and with this application in your S60 phones, you can be sure that the end image will bear a constant light and exposure in it. It also have built in white balance through which you will be able to fix the color tone in accordance to the overall light condition. So in a cloudy day there will be more white to make things more clear and precise in the image. You also get an image capturing sound when performing a 360 degree session and it will let you save the image in the memory card of your phone or in the phone memory, whichever suites your handsets and devices better. If you are carrying a super duper phone like the Nokia N95, N95 8gb or a Nokia N82 then you will also be enjoying the Auto Focus option. This will let you take your image without you messing it up, a shaky hand and some missed steps might result in losing focus obviously which the auto focus of Panoman can handle quite efficiently.
The intelligent scanning engine integrates so well with your digital mobile camera that it actually “anticipates the next move” after every single frame, thus letting the symbian OS create a dynamic and parallel image. The overall shading doesn’t break at all which is quite unbelievable and I have no clue on how it actually is possible, but it sure is possible!! Tested! Throughout the whole panorama, Panoman maintains a constant color tone and image brightness which is really vital for the quality of the end image. Panoman really pulls it out without any issues at all and it pulls it out in style!! Enough blah blah from me, just take a look at how it works and how the images look like and you will be so satisfied yourself that you will surely get it right on about now!
