I was excited to see the app update recently. Release notes: "Optimized the panorama algorithm to enhance the image stitching quality significantly"

The 3 Panorama modes that we had before the latest update had very low vertical resolution when the Osmo Mobile 2 is paired with my iPhone X...

180°: 6517 x 911
330°: 9330 x 929
3x3: 4471 x 1928

I was expecting this to be better after the update but here's what we got unfortunately...

Ultra WideAngle: 2089 x 1335 (9 Pics, 3 rows of 3)
Fisheye: 3073 x 1290 (15 Pics, 3 rows of 5)
Panorama: 5092 x 1332 (27 pics, 3 rows of 9)

They got rid of 2 perfectly acceptable modes (180 & 330) which had a good horizontal resolution and changed the name of 3x3 to Ultra WideAngle.
Please notice that the output resolution of the newly named Ultra WideAngle is actually LOWER than it was before!  This is not acceptable.
Look at the Fisheye resolution.  The iPhone X takes pics at 4032 x 3024 using the rear camera.  So 3 rows of pics being merged into a pano suggests to me that the vertical resolution should be MORE than a single image.  Even if there was a 50% overlap vertically I should still have an output vertical resolution of 4500, it's not even a third of that.


What's also unfortunate is that when I select the option to "Save Unstitched Pano Photos" and try to create the pano in Lightroom to get a higher resolution output it fails every time with all 3 types of Pano.  This is irritating since Lightroom can easily handle the processing for all 4 of the Pano modes on my Mavic Pro.

What I like to do is just use the default iOS camera app to create pano's.
The osmo mobile makes perfect horizontal movement with the joystick.
I tried the pano modes as well, but they did not work for me too.

You are right, Panorama mode is unusable now

Default iOS Panorama functions already produce the best panorama quality i have seen so far. I would recommend using the native app for most things (picture, video etc) unless you need more control, then stick to filmic pro (for video)

Hello same problem with me. I find it not acceptable to have a system that says « high res panorama » when the 27 stiched photos are barely larger than just ONE iphone resolution photo ! Can you please tell me DJI when is that supposed to be fixed ? I’m going on holidays in 3 weeks and i was counting on that High Res panorama. Thank you.

Sorry for my late response, we have optimized the Pano Mode but the previous functions are still there, I have made a small chart for a better explanation, hope it helps. 232535tva794xx7h95x48v.png

If you need the higher resolution, it is recommended to stitch all the single pictures via the third party program, what happened when you use Lightroom? Have you tried other programs?

Hello and thank you for the reply. What third party program? In fact i want to stay in my ecosystem lightroom for my photos. When i try to stich them it gives a strange mapping in every projection i choose. One user said that it was possible to stich via lightroom with the mavic pro photos for panorama. Do DJI does it on purpose for marketing reasons ?
Thank you for your help

..to be clear i would prefer the osmo mobile 2 to give true high res panorama photos and if not possible .. the unstiched photos must be lightroom friendly to get high res panorama... and the perfect thing would be to propose to capture the photos in RAW for better tuning
