    I don't seem to get it right reading the EPL1 manual's step by step instructions in doing panorama shots. Is it me? Help!

    What is not happening for you in the way you expect?

    You select panorama when in scene mode, and that's about it - you get some frame markers. It's as easy to do it manually.
    You have to stitch photos together on your computer.
    It's possible that the Olympus software recognises panorama mode pictures in a special way that I'm not aware of.

    So its the computer program that does the photo stitching? I use iphoto and I don't think the version I have has the capability...will try. Thanks!

    Photo stitching is what you do on your computer. Some Fancy cameras have the function built in but you have way more control doing it on your computer.

    On my MacBook I use an app called 'Double Take' and it works great. Drag the images in and the app and it will align the pictures. You have different adjustments you can make but generally it gets it right everytime.

    Try using Hugin. It's open source, so it's free. And it's got a bazillion features. You can HDR and panostitch at the same time with it.

    I used the Olympus Viewer 2 software and it worked fine for panorama shots taken with the E-pl3.
