Yes, but say you're photographing an egg from 12 inches away and want a lateral movement of, say, 12 inches.

First photo sees the egg from one side, second photo sees egg in the middle and last shot sees egg from the other side. This is present in principle for any panoramic but if you're shooting mountains it doesn't matter

If you're shooting mountains, moving the camera 12 inches laterally isn't going to get you much of a panorama. The proper way to do panoramas is to rotate the camera around its nodal point, as this eliminates the parallax effect.

I'm no expert, but shouldn't this should work for macro panoramas (?)
