This panorama of Monet's lily pond in Giverny France, was taken with my Sony A-7 camera in about 30 seconds.  The camera takes several photos as you sweep across the area and stitches them together in real time.  Obviously, it works much better with a tripod, but in a typical touring environment it isn't always possible to set up a tripod.  This capability, also available in a limited sense on the iPhone, has added an entire new dimension, so to speak, to travel photography.
