Taking a Pan 360 photo

The world isn't flat and your photos shouldn't be either. Take a 360-degree panorama of what's around you.
Important: Some camera features are not available when you’re in this mode, such as zooming.
  1. On the Home screen, tap the camera icon to open the Camera app.
  2. Tap > Panorama.
  3. On the Viewfinder screen, tap to show the camera options.
  4. Tap , and then tap to switch to Pan 360 mode.
  5. Hold HTC One (M8) at face level so you'll have more room to capture scenes above or below you.
  6. When you're ready to take the first shot, center the white box within the Viewfinder markers. The camera automatically captures the frame.
  7. To take succeeding shots, pan HTC One (M8) up, down, left, and right as smoothly as you can.

    As you pan in one direction, you'll see another white box. Center the white box again within the Viewfinder markers.

    Tip: Stand in the same spot even as you turn around to take more shots. For best results, remember to:
    • Avoid capturing scenes with moving objects.
    • Keep at least five meters distance from the scene.
  8. Pan repeatedly until you get your desired frames or when you don't see any more boxes.

    To stop capturing anytime, tap .
