Creating a Panorama with Any Camera

With many new features one feature added to the new and popular iOS 8 (iPhone, iPod, iPad variants) camera application is it's new panorama function. This news has many upgrading to iOS 8  excited as it now make's it easier for them to create a panorama image. 
Although I am sure that is great news for iOS 8, also many cameras from the humble Point & Shoot and all the way up to the best DSLR now offer panorama but "How would I create a panorama if my camera does not have the function?" According to Luminous Landscape the answer to that question is "Easier Than You Think."

However not to be dismissive and as complete or comprehensive as
Luminous Landscape's tutorial is I used a FREE Windows PC application called Hugin - Panorama photo stitcher to create the images shown below. 

Presented within the Luminous Landscapes tutorial are various methods for creating a panorama but mostly uses  Photoshop.  Of course the method you choose to make yours is entirely up to you.
