    Howdy TOM,

    If its like my 300si Super, what the Pano mode is, is a mechanical mask that crops the top and bottom of the frame. This mask is operated by a lever on the side of the camera.

    Hope that helps!

    Of course, assuming that is the case, than you can do this in the darkroom, in your computer, or have your lab do it.
