theta v firmware update via mac app Floridaboy 1 3 monthsFloridaboy (13): I've been having issues with trying to update my theta v from 1.3x version to current version.

Can't edit 360 uploads to Zillow? kjonyou 16 7 monthsVTLV (2369): Zillow Video used to require being shot through the app or pay them a couple hundred bucks to upload your beautiful video. Unless you uploaded more than 10 a month. One month you're told a video will help your tour tour rank first on Zillow Search results. Then they fade off and not longer rank high making you a liar. Same for Zillow 3D. It's a constant revolving tower of goo with updates. As you know Zestimates rarely match up to proper current...

When 360 Tours HURT Real Estate Listings due to Poor Quality jericreson 1 9 monthsjericreson (84): As agents begin to adopt 360 tours it's vital to understand that quality matters. There are now a large range of tours - from DIY gizmos to beautiful professionally scanned tours using expensive equipment and upscale tour formats. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of stealing a listing from another agent. Coming soon to market, after it "rests" and we let time undo the damage the previous agent created with poor marketing.

My first Matterport 3D Tour: Feedback Please (used Z1 and V to compare) FabioLuna 7 9 monthsFabioLuna (7): thanks everyone for the feedback. I had the cameras at about 5 1/2 ft,I will definitely try using different heights depending on how tall the total space is. @castaway I have no idea how that mesh got created, I don't remember deleting any scan points and I didn't touch any of the windows. I was going to use the Z1 first and take advantage of the light, but the battery had drained because I forgot to turn off the camera after charging(...

Examples of 360 Tours Created with Ricoh Theta Z1/V/SC2 and Insta360 One/X DanSmigrod 2 9 monthslilnitsch (2836): I like redundancy. I have gotten busy enough where I now send a family member a second direction on certain shoots. My policy it to carry an heir & a spare for all equipment on a shoot. So, each shooter carries two DSLR’s, a Z1 & a V or sc2 for Zillow’s 3D home tours (v or sc2 are just in case) and a Pro2 w/a Pro1 back up. I never want to show up to a property unable to perform due to some sort of hardware issues

Considering Ricoh Theta Z1, but, worried about battery! photosintheround 12 1 yearWingman (1890): The image quality and their time shift plugin is worth it everything else does not. As for a monopod, I use a cheap one for less than $15. It is ok for inside and leveled surface but outside and on a slope it can be a problem. Since I am going to use a Pilot Era instead of a Z1 soon I have decided to get a better one and bought Neewer brand monopod for $42 from...
Ricoh Tours leonherbert 10 1 yearWingman (1890): $45/month for unlimited seems to be worth paying. However I am not sure you can create a tour with their Z1s and Vs due to Ricoh cutting off accuracy in location data. When you have 5m or even 5cm accuracy it is one thing but when it turns into 50-100m accuracy by bugs(or by bad code) in their app what kind of quality of a tour your can expect with that? The only way to avoid it is to use these two cameras with Street View app but I do not...

Matterport Comparison: Pro1, Pro2, Ricoh Theta V/Z1, Insta360 One X lilnitsch 5 1 yearlilnitsch (2836): @Ghagendorf with any of the 360 cameras you will have to use a 3rd party for floor plans.

Brain Teaser: Converting Matterport Outdoor 3D Views to 3D Scans? DanSmigrod 10 2 yearsWingman (1890): Tried it now in full sunlight and I could not scan at all. It seems it can work somehow with clouds covering the Sun but once it is out and shining it won't work. With clouds though just keep looking at a minimap in Capture and make sure your next scan data is going to overlap data from any of the previous scans. If there is no Sun you should have about 2-3m of data placed around each scan(can be more if it is really cloudy) so you next...

Ricoh Theta V versus Ricoh Theta Z1 ron0987 24 2 yearsron0987 (1778): @Wingman thank you for the input, I definitely liked the camera quality, in some cases better than Z1 but over all versatility Z1 hits the mark on a bunch of levels and even though I would buy both I also have a wife that would probably say yes but hard to justify. I am checking on the phase shift now thank you for the info. Ron
Theta V(and Z1) fantastic plugin: saves you time & takes you out of a pano Wingman 11 2 yearsWingman (1890): Just a short addon. My Z1 also works with it without any problem. To be honest Ricoh has hooked me up with this plugin. I cannot imagine using something else that does not offer the same functionality. If they fix coarse location data coming from their app I will stick with their cameras at least until somebody else starts offering the same functionality and provides a better resolution. So far I have seen features to achieve the same...

best camera for outside photos fotoguy 4 2 yearsWingman (1890): I have just tried my Z1 and it is exactly the same as with my V model. Not sure why it is happening as each scan seems to cover(see) much bigger area than it allows to choose a proper distance between scan points. More than 2 meters away from the first point and it cannot align, more than 1.5 from the second and it cannot align. I cannot see any reason to try further if all this happening from a start. I do not know may be it will work with 1...
Theta Z1, the same bug with GPS precision? Wingman 5 2 yearsleonherbert (901): @Wingman the only suggestion is to ask Ricoh to attach the coordinates from the first image to the merged image. Does the theta store both the individual images as well? Is it an option. If so you can check the accuracy of the individual image. You can attach those coordinates to the merged image. There is software that can allow you to strip the gps coordinates from images, I can't recall what it is, it is a script that you run. I think the...

Matterport cameras compared: Ricoh Theta V & Z1, Insta360 ONE X, Pro2, Pro1 Jwbuckl 4 2 yearsChangesin3d (124): The interesting part of this is the Closed System "business opportunity" to an open system with other peoples hardware. Matterport sells a amera and sells a business opportunity with an expensive camera and then allows others to have almost the same presentation at a fraction of the cost. At least to my eyes the Z1 is equal to the Pro Cameras. Put this on a mobile devise and the comparisons get even closer. Most consumers for...

Wingman 3 2 yearsWingman (1890): I know there may be some delay but both tours have been on Google for at least 10 days and all linking inside each tour works properly. It is just no linking between each tour. I will try to get away with just downloading two closeby panos(one from each tour), link them and upload them back to GSV. I put their logo at nadir on the outdoor path but I do not really want it for their inside tours made with Matterport. It would take a lot of time...

RICOH Tours - Automated VR Tours DanSmigrod 2 2 yearsizoneguy (468): They need to get rid of old cameras. Most RE Agents would not know the Z1 was available. I have been using the Z1 shooting Motor Homes with superior results than Matterport. The Motor Homes only require about 5 scans so it is easy enough to put together..... Plus Matterport just sent out a release to let you know that the Business plans are only $309 per month for 100 spaces.....
Video: How to use Ricoh Theta Stitcher+ Adobe Lightroom with Ricoh Theta Z1 DanSmigrod 4 2 yearsleonvanzweel (521): The quality of a one-shot spherical camera will always remain built in. Poor contrast and parallax error. To improve on the parallax error a two lens solution is used to minimize the nodal point offset, but it exacerbates the lighting contrast. Using a four or multi-lens solution improves the lighting contrast but exacerbates the nodal point offset. The main advantage of one-shot cameras is the speed and ease of use. One just has to compromise...

Pano2VR Pro vs VirtualTour Pro Wingman 13 2 yearsWingman (1890): it seems google has done with connections on my tour. I have lost a few shoots going over a bridge there so you are kind of jumping under it if you go to the next spot. I will probably redo the whole walk once I get a helmet mount for my Theta V. And it is still a lot to learn for me both for Pano2VR and for publishing tours on google map.

Can Matterport Cortex convert 360s into 3D? DanSmigrod 8 2 yearsRichardStanton (213): Yeah it can great for that, and quick as @Metroplex360 pointed out if you are doing it on top of a previous successful (location, not necessarily mesh) scan! A lot of my test cases have been in situations where location data points are sparse or nonexistent, with mixed results. Even so, when I can make it work, very promising! The system will only get smarter as it learns from more contributed scans and configurations.

How do you fix the "red dot" from the Ricoh Theta V? DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsTHRHHI (292): Dan it seems to happen about 70% of the time with my images. I think there is probably a sweet spot you can align the 2 lens to the sun to eliminate. No proof just my thought process. Was going to test it but figured it was just easier to remove since i am taking out the tripod. I only use Nadir patch ever once in a while. I find them very annoying when they are on every scan.

Matterport VP Mark Tepper on Why Camera Agnostic is Good for MSPs DanSmigrod 5 2 yearsangusnorriss (735): Damn right. I’d like to know which MSPs exactly spoke with Tepper. Mr Beloney probably.

I actually bought another camera yesterday. I refuse to serve...

Ricoh settings for dark shoot video VTLV 2 2 yearsCFster (271): That’s the big problem with every 360 camera I’ve ever come across. The sensors are tiny, which results in lots of noise when the ISO is pushed. The only solution in this case is to add light.

I was also not that impressed with the image quality. I won't be using this on professional shoots, It is just a tester before I drop $2000 on a Nikon D610 & Sigma 8mm.

I also predict that this will be a perfect device for third party experiments with ARKit. It's that fuzzy feeling depth of field that killed my interest in the Theta S. I ordered it, used it twice and it's been sitting in the bag.
