    I only tried it few times and I found it very easy to use, pretty straightforward. I don't have 3D TV so I cannot tell what does it actually look like on TV (speed, quality, etc...).
    Do you have problems with shooting or playback?

    Cheers!

    here is the frustrating part for me ...

    1. it defaults to pan from left to right, and when i am shooting from left to right, it constantly gives me an error saying 'you need to pan in the correct direction' or 'you need to pan faster'...then fails
    2. the app often stops before i finish panning (before the slider gets to the end), then it says 'the image contains a gray area' and i get a block of gray area on the right.

    all and all, i never get a 100% picture and by far the most annoying app i have used.

    I have the same problem with the 3D camera. I have an Xperia Ray. Difficult to use. Gives the errors told by the complainer. Help. How to use.

    it's ashame that they released a version, that is extremely difficult to use, without taking time to QA such product. what gives, really.

    It complains about things even without the 3D mode for panoramic photos - often getting confused when you're doing nothing wrong.

    It often moans that I am going too fast when I'm going at a snails pace - and trying harder to go slower and slower. Yet for certain lighting/content situations, you can in fact go very fast indeed.

    I have to assume the algorithms have some bugs, so certain 'scenes' confuse the software - whether you're doing 2D or 3D captures.

    i totally agreed the software has plenty of bugs. i can't believe they rolled out an app that is so lame to use.

    To be fair, when the conditions are right, the panoramic photos come out pretty good.

    Sadly, given the fuss and the high probability that it won't work, I don't even bother with it now.

    i couldn't agree more with you on the quality as such. however, it often takes me 5-6-7 times just to get one shot. it is frustrating and i don't bother using it much either.
