My favorite feature on Sony's! Don't know why you wouldn't print them though - they're pretty large files that print well up to fairly big sizes.
That is one nice thing about the little RX100 having 20 megs of resolution, even in the pano mode you can still get a pretty large file.
Quite the contrast to my Fuji X100, which also had the pano mode, but the resulting file was pretty small, even smaller than its 12meg resolution would suggest and as such, it wasn't really print worthy.
Certainly with either camera there is the option to just do a manual pano, and have full resolution, but the Sony sweep mode certainly is darn quick and effective.
Speaking of smartphones, I'd really love to a see an intelligent manual pano mode on cameras. My iPhone, with auto stitch, a $0.99 app, can show me the overlap and turns red or green in the frame to let me know when to take the next shot, or Photo Synth, which is free, can automatically snap each frame when the right amount of overlap is detected.
How cool it would be to have that type of ease of use, mixed with the IQ and focal lenght options of a CSC or other higher quality camera.
Again, I do like sweep pano, and its great for casual use, but when its a really nice scene, I'll usually shoot it manually so I can have more control over stitching, blending, higher rez etc
