For the first time, you can capture sweeping movements in panoramas with motion. The panorama still captured at the same time is a seamless, stitched sequence of the clearest frames from the motion version. To relive the moment, all you have to do is swipe the screen or pan your Galaxy S7 and S7 edge sideways.
