But then again the places around the Salar de Uyuni, San Pedro de Atacama and northern Argentina have v
been the most amazing places (scenery wise, ermmm not "nature" wise ;)/> ) I have ever been too, which might include your desktop wallpaper......
Northern Argentina... we got there from San Pedro de Atacama, crossing the border Chile/Argentina. Also the Cataratas (waterfalls) were wonderful. And Missiones, we stayed in a hacienda there, and you could see only sky, clouds and grass for miles and miles! As to my favorite city there, it was Salta, very nice&cosy place, at least the center of it... didn't have the nerve to go to far away from the center. Ah, the memories... makes we want to go back there ;)/>

I also have a Canon, just a little Ixus v2, and that came with a panorama tool. There's only two things I don't like about it - firstly that it doesn't run on linux, and secondly that it's limited to horizontal strip panos like this:
.---- ---- ---- | | | | .---- ---- ----So when you line them up, it always ends up long and skinny.
I like to also be able to do different types of panos like a row of portraits or a grid, like this:
.--- --- --- ---- ---- ---- | | | | or | | | | | | | | ---- ---- ---- .--- --- --- | | | | ---- ---- ----

Although there's some blur on them, more on some than on others - I'm guessing this is camera wobble rather than focus problems because the focus should be fixed between shots.
One advantage of having a special panorama mode (apart from the help with lining up) is the file naming - STA, STB etc - makes it easy to separate out the panoramas for stitching. And the ability to set a different default picture size for the panoramas - so it's easy to have a big setting for single stills and a smaller setting for the pano parts. I did look at the Canon S2 when I was buying my camera, and saw a couple of extra modes, including a 2x2 square, but couldn't see a 4x2 or a 1x4 or similar. But then as I said as long as you can line them up by eye then you can use hugin to tile more or less anything together.
One thing I discovered with mine - it doesn't work too well making a panorama with zoom. The zoom introduces more vignetting which gives dark bands when you try to stitch them.
Is it my imagination or is everything on the Civil War one (apart from the yellow pole thing mid-left) leaning over to the left?

I may have to try hugin then. The program I'm using came with my camera (and runs on my Mac)
