Dual, yours looks like a folded pic.  >:D

Not sure what your problem was, but the settings (exposure, focus, etc) for all the individual pics must be the same.

Do a auto focus, then switch to manual.

Learn how to set your exposure manually. Say f8 and adjust your shutter speed (looking at the --- +- --- in the viewfinder). Use the same setting for all the pics.

That is it.

Ditto on what Kobus Said

Go P Mode get the Reading dial that into M Manual Mode.

I Shoot a Hand pointing left as my first shot so i know where my Pano's START.

Then after 5 or 8 shots ,shoot Fist for the end of Pano.

The MOST IMPORTANT Thing is SHOOT in Portrait Mode not Landscape.

Works for me

Cheers

Was going to ask why............. I suppose it depends on how much you want in the image top to bottom. Makes sense.

Portrait Pano

I learnt that about a year ago from a Leading Photographer

You will see the difference when it come to stiching and the software.....Much easier.

So when we going to do a Photo SHoot KOBUS ?

That is it.

Another good point is not to take the photos at a wide angle to limit the distortion/lens vignetting around the edges of the frame, especially with cheaper lenses.

Zoom in to about 50mm and take lots of portrait photos and don't skimp on the overlapping.  Rather overlap too much than too little.
