Example: Pano2VR Virtual Tour Shot with a Ricoh Theta Z1 DanSmigrod 2 10 dayslilnitsch (88): Must require flash or another plug-in as it doesn't appear to work on Safari on my iMac ~ Works in chrome.

Ricoh Theta V versus Ricoh Theta Z1 ron0987 24 1 monthron0987 (1153): @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 1 monthWingman (517): 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...
Matterport 3D Tour with Ricoh Theta Z1 3SixtyNow 6 1 monthlilnitsch (88): @3SixtyNow not a problem @advancedhdr ~ I have done a little street view with the Z1 through the Streetview app for iOS stills I had no Issues I haven't gotten video mode to work yet ~ May actually have to switch the Z1 into video mode prior to using the street view app ~ for the little bit of street view for business I have done I have been using Matterport's sent to street view just for the ease of work flow
Ricoh theta gear 8643d 10 2 months8643d (32): Awesome, Thanks Dan. I found your gear kit for 360 1 click cameras, good stuff. 360 1 click camera gear
best camera for outside photos fotoguy 4 2 monthsWingman (517): 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 monthsleonherbert (436): @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...
3D Capture and software questions newengland3d 10 2 monthsWingman (517): Here is a link to the model with the film development room captured. This space is big so to get to that room straight away just switch to the floor plan view and you will see a dark space in the middle. It is actually not so grainy in pictures quality as it has looked in scans.
Using the Ricoh Theta Z1 to Add People to Matterport 3D Tour DanSmigrod 3 2 monthsWingman (517): I am getting one in a few days for a price slightly lower than Ricoh RRP. It is US$954 with a current exchange rate. You can buy it here May be it is not worth for customers outside of Australia as I do not think they will ship it for free worldwide. However comparing to $2200 AUD on ebay from Japan it is much better at $1349 AUD. Almost half of it :-) It shows as pre-order but I got...

Matterport cameras compared: Ricoh Theta V & Z1, Insta360 ONE X, Pro2, Pro1 Jwbuckl 4 3 monthsChangesin3d (59): 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...

Chicago (18 June 2019): Hands-on with Matterport 3D Virtual Tour cameras DanSmigrod 16 3 monthsJwbuckl (280): @ron0987 I understand your point. I was responsible for the planning of and then ultimately the canceling of the Chicago event (due to poor sign-ups). We are still committed to the hands-on format of these Meetups and will try the same in other cities where we think demand warrants. We are looking to the San Francisco Bay area for the next one. Unfortunately, Matterport does not yet have a true users' conference in the works at this time, but I...

This is what the public beta is for - getting optimization on all systems between the companies, not just the bits.

Ricoh Theta Z1 Officially in Matterport Public Beta Testing DanSmigrod 2 4 monthsizoneguy (328): Motor Home shot with Z1 - [wp3d][/wp3d]
RICOH Tours - Automated VR Tours DanSmigrod 2 4 monthsizoneguy (328): 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 4 monthsleonvanzweel (507): 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...
Zillow 3D Home Tour using the Theta Z1 TomLeinbaugh 4 4 monthsTomLeinbaugh (6): The Zillow app automatically adds many of the navigational arrows between spaces, but I added some myself later. While taking photos you are given a choice of area/room labels from a list in the app, which you can change later when editing the tour.
Has anyone produced a Zillow 3D Home tour with the Ricoh Theta Z1 camera ?? RichardBurt 3 4 monthsbmnyphoto (16): OK, here’s a little more feedback. My main matterport user, Emailed me. I have done to Zillow tours for him so far. He likes the product but is very disappointed in how you walk-through/flow of the home. He feels it’s a little cumbersome. We are back to matter port :-)

Does Matterport allow Theta Z1 to shoot in HDR? zacharysmiller 8 4 monthsDanSmigrod (19065): @Jwbuckl Thanks for clarifying. Much appreciated. Dan
First Post - 360 Newbie - Need Advice Theta Z1 and Matterport zacharysmiller 5 4 monthsJwbuckl (280): The 360 cameras do not have the accurate depth sensing that the Matterport cameras do. So a floorplan would only be within 4-10% accuracy which is why they are not offered with the 360s. The Matterport Pro cameras are within 1% accuracy and the Leica BLK360 is within .1%.
Same Space: Ricoh Theta Z1 versus Matterport Pro2 3D Camera (You Decide!) HarlanHambright 7 4 monthsShakoure (270): Zooming via both the MP player and browser definitely reveals that MP Pro produces finer details. But I agree the coloring from the Z1 seems more vivid. Not bad Z1.
Matterport Pro2Tour versus Matterport Tour Created with Ricoh Theta Z1 DanSmigrod 3 4 monthsHarlanHambright (1621): You drive the theta like MP with iPad. That’s not the issue. Technically you can eliminate the blk but it will still be best solution in certain circumstances. A garden path I did in bright sun had to shoot every 4-5 feet to get alignments. Blk more accurate and goes like 30’ or better.
