- shoot with fixed exposure (manual mode, most likely identified by
an M on the camera program dial)
- shoot with fixed white balance. (should be accessible via menu).
White balance can be adjusted afterwards if you shoot RAW.
- shoot with fixed focus (eventually set to infinity).
A flash is difficult to use for panoramas. That's definitely an
advanced technique. Better than a flash is currently to use available
light and eventually shoot bracketed and use a tool like enfuse
http://wiki.panotools.org/Enfuse or the PTGui internal fusing tool.
May be you find something in to tutorial section of the wiki,
