I'm guessing that you mean sweep pano mode (if I'm wrong, feel free to correct me), in which case, no. The only ones I can think of that have that feature are the Sony Alphas.

For Panos though, just stick your camera on a stable tripod, take multiple photos, and stitch them together. It's extremely simple post work to get a Pano out this way. Just a word to the wise: It will lag your CPU. I once did a 90MP pano and boy, did my CPU struggle with it.
Damn your good. Yes it's the sweep pano mode where the pictures get very wide. Hmm I didn't know that feature was exclusive to Sony. Wow these photo editing are that intense on the CPU huh?

As far as I know, in the DSLR world they are limited to Sony Alphas. For making panos in post, you can downsize your photos before you stitch them together. The reason why my CPU was dying was because I kept my RAW files in their full 15MP resolution, and nine of them stitched together (overlapping areas subtracted made it equal 90MP) was not friendly.

For most people, they can easily downsize to 6MP and still have a great looking panorama without the horrible CPU torture.

As far as I know, there isn't unfortunately. If you want my two cents though, I've bought all my gear used (no warranty), and I haven't had any issues yet. My 50D has been with me in blizzard snow and SF rain and it's still kicking.

i own the t2i and it is an amazing camera, had it for a few months and still learning all of the features, the HD is epic once you have it setup right, i bought the camera with lens combo on boxing day for around 800 so in my opinion the price to performance ratio is very good

Sounds about right. My friend did the same thing too, and he's also pretty happy. Aside from the sticker saying so, we both couldn't tell it was a refurbished camera. Very good price if you ask me.

God I hate myself... My wallet probably hates me even more. I'm switching what my heart was set on (Nikon D90) to the Nikon D7000, is this a good idea? What are the pros and cons of this move I'm doing? And how does the D90 compare to the D7000?
