    I noticed in the store there's a Nokia panorama app. Does the Nokia Pro Cam have a panorama mode that I haven't seen or is this separate app my best bet for taking these types of photos?

    You'll need the Nokia Panorama app. For some extra fun, check out Microsoft's Photosynth app, which stitches multiple views in two planes, rather than the single plane of the Panorama app.

    You have to download an app called nokia panorama from the app store.

    As mentioned you need Nokia Panorama for basic panoramic shots but definitely try Photosynth as well

    The Nokia Panorama is... ok. I liked it a lot, until I used an iPhone and tried theirs. A much easier process that gives a much better panorama. But this gets the job done - it's still easy and it often does it without misaligning. There's a great deal of room for improvement, though, it has a 3 star rating in the app store for good reason.

    Photosynth does cooler things, but is harder to share.

    I haven't tried them on the Icon yet, but in my experience with the 928 photosynth is way better.

    Agreed. Photosynth is way to go.

    Nokia's panorama app is easy to use, but limited in what it can do. Photosynth is great if you have the patience for it to capture everything. :)

    Separate but they all are accessible through the lenses in the camera app. Photosynth is better in my opinion.

    Thanks guys, I tried both Nokia's and Microsoft's apps, and Photosynth is a lot easier to use. But both produce really low quality panoramas (compared to regular photos with the Icon). I guess it's the nature of what it's doing. The thumbnail looks great on the phone, but if you start zooming in its pretty rough looking quality.
