Don't want to be a party pooper, but as far as panoramas are concerned i use the in camera panorama sweep function wich is present in just about every compact or mirrorless camera these days. This panorama was made with the nikon AW100 my trusty travel companion This may not be "PRO" grade but it does save you a lot of work on holiday snaps.

Roman panos always manage to compress the centuries. I do not have any built-in pano capaility in my cameras, but have used a recent ICE variety with reasonable results. For me it has produced up to about 400Mb composites.
Advantages; fast and can be fed with raw files. , makes seamless joints, can join previous stitches together with TIFFs. Disadvantages; not 16bit output, does not cope with larger exposure differences and seems not to use a "scratch disk" (complains about needing 4Gb when given larger numbers of files than it can digest-has probably used about half of my 8Gb Ram- while it still has the potential use of around 100Gb disk space.)
Be warned....the latest version of Ice only runs on win7 or above, it does nor run on XP... and if you have win 7 it seems that it automatically assumes that you will be upgrading to Win 10, It may even do it without seeking confirmation, but usually such downloads require a full confirmation. I am not anti Win 10, it does however require a very modern processor, much bigger ram, and a bigger hard drive than most systems of the past few years.
