Hello, thank you for your question regarding the Canon PowerShot SX40 12.1MP Bridge Camera.

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that the 67mm filter is in fact a filter adaptor; allowing you the ability to attach 67mm filter thread filters.

Answer(s)
If you mean the so-called "panorama" function, then... not exactly. The camera will take several phoos that you will have to line up using assistance in the viewfinder, and the supplied software must be used to stitch them together on your computer when back at home. The camera does not do this automatically for you unlike some of its competitors

Answer(s)
Ys, it has a large rear LCD screen that rotates and twists, and can be turned round so that the LCD faces inwards to prevent it from being damaged when you carry the camera around (or store it away). It does not have a second smaller LCD panel on the top unlike many "serious" DSLR's though
