Tried to use the Panorama Assist on the FZ150 today and just wanted some assistance. When I take Panos I try to lock the exposure (manual) and focus so that the exposure for each subsequent frame is the same. When I select the Pano Assist, it does not let me do this. Does anyone know if the camera actually does this in the Pano Assist mode? If it doesn't then I think it is a bit of a waste of time. I can easily remember a point of reference to align the next frame and use the side of the frame in place of the grid, so these features are no great benefit to me.

I have tried Panorama Maker 4 once before and found that it was not that good (Panorama Maker 3 was better with the manual fine tuning facility). Anyone know a good freeware Panorama stitcher? I have downloaded the Pandora plugin for the The Gimp but not tried it yet.

Thanks for your comments and assistance.
