Stitch assist on the Canon IXUS 75

Last few days, I have been trying to get to know the Canon IXUS 75 that I use regularly.  It is a nice compact camera that take reasonably good pictures in good light.  Like any compact cameras, they suffer badly in low light conditions (with maybe the exception of the Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR, the Panasonic LX-3 and the Canon G10).



Whilst trying to figure out whether it has a shutter or aperture priority control (of which there are none), I came across these two symbols that I did not know what it is about!



Took me a few minutes to figure out that this is the stitch assist (well, it’s written at the bottom left but somehow took me some time to figure this out) feature of the IXUS 75.

I tried using it but found it a little pointless as if you are intending to stitch, you probably know how much overlap you require.  Anyway, it is quite intuitive to use it and coupled with a software like the Microsoft Image Composite Editor or Clevr, you can create good panoramic pictures.
