USB Data transfer Ricoh Theta Z1 leonherbert 7 3 daysleonherbert (591): So after pulling out the last few hairs I have on my head I called Ricoh. After taking a while to explain the problem they asked a level 2 who said that there is a problem with the plugin at the moment. Excellent, no mention anywhere of this. Oh, AND LIKE MOST COMPANIES NOWADAYS, "WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT IS GOING TO TAKE TO SORT OUT" I wish every time a Company says that, they offer to pay money towards the lost income I will...
How to fix slant instead of vertical 360º photos shot with Ricoh Theta Z1? DanSmigrod 25 4 dayslilnitsch (596): @leonherbert when your arm falls off. If the icon isn't going away you might try a larger or smaller figure 8. For good measure you may also try the middle of the room away from electronics or metal items
Considering Ricoh Theta Z1, but, worried about battery! photosintheround 12 15 daysWingman (685): 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...
2020 is the year of Google Street View Blue Line Map Updates by Pros DanSmigrod 6 15 daysTosolini (3114): @wingman based on personal experience, I don't see a reason to put the camera closer to the roof or you'll get 'too much car' in the photo. Here is what the image of an Insta360 Pro attached to a roof of a Ford truck looks like in GSV: https://goo.gl/maps/8VJWvh7byTtN2GESA [streetview]https://goo.gl/maps/8VJWvh7byTtN2GESA[/streetview] https://forum.we-get-around.com/cached/4c791e6ebcfa3e1baa1b25126e99c737.jpg If I could elevate it a...
Ricoh Tours leonherbert 10 17 daysWingman (685): $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...
New WGAN Member Asks>Should I Switch to Matterport Pro2 from Ricoh Theta V? DanSmigrod 8 21 daysSalim (25): I see. Nice. For Richo theta V I would take more than 20 hours to cover such area. That is very much faster with pro2

A techie at heart and also in the software biz so I'm always trying to investigate "what's next?"
[R&D] Sharing the outcome of a multi-devices experiment Tosolini 5 2 monthsTosolini (3114): https://tosolini.com/wp-content/uploads/B29-Z1-vs-Pro1-1-scaled.png One last learning. Comparing the image quality of a tour done with the Z1 today with the same tour done three years ago with MP Pro1, the resolution of the Z1 seems superior than MP Pro1 (the dollhouse is not as clean though). Which makes me think that for regular spaces like a home, you can replace the Pro1 with the Z1 and travel much lighter.

World War 2 Tunnels mapped with Theta Z1 (Matterport 3D Tour) Joakim360 14 2 monthsbryanhscott (338): @Joakim360 Great! Thx for the info.
Well that's not a good start (with my Ricoh Theta Z1) leonherbert 5 2 monthsleonherbert (591): @DanSmigrod @bryanhscott The camera has some sort of error that cannot be fixed through a firmware update or anything else. I was able to see that it had the correct firmware but the camera just showed an error in the camera display. The camera was fully charged and just switched off after showing the error. Ricoh recons that it is just one of those rare duds. B&H has already overnighted me a replacement. There customer care is very...
How to Remove Yourself from a 360º Photo (During the Shoot) DanSmigrod 8 2 monthsWingman (685): I have never tried it on IOS and always used it with Android without anything similar. It may be just IOS thing. [quote] The other issue is the app will not connect with my phone while using the plugin and sometimes it freeze up requiring me to start it again.

Matterport Comparison: Pro1, Pro2, Ricoh Theta V/Z1, Insta360 One X lilnitsch 5 2 monthslilnitsch (596): @Ghagendorf with any of the 360 cameras you will have to use a 3rd party for floor plans.

Similar Motorhomes - One with Z1 the other with Matterport izoneguy 4 3 monthsbryanhscott (338): @izoneguy Understood and thanks much for the added info. The breakdown is very helpful.
My 360º spheres created with Ricoh Theta Z1 are crooked. What should I do? Stevede 10 3 monthsWingman (685): If you level a shoot lines will be straight(the same for Matterport cameras) but stitching errors are happening from time to time. Just make sure you are at least 60cm away from any object pictured. The closer the object the most likely you will have some stitching errors. Also if you picture some specific object in a space place your camera with the front lens looking at that object. Since a Z1 is two lens camera stitching will be done on...
Brain Teaser: Converting Matterport Outdoor 3D Views to 3D Scans? DanSmigrod 10 3 monthsWingman (685): 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...

Matterport plus; Ricoh Theta Z1 for photos? fotoguy 6 4 monthsbryanhscott (338): @fotoguy Understood. Ah, now I get the whole picture. Sorry, I'm a little slow today. Also eliminates all, or most all of the usual re-touching, which I am sure we are all so fond of ;-). Thanks for the clarification. To this point, I have been using my Sony A7SII and 5 exp brackets for the interior. Given it does in-camera stacking, which works very well, I just quickly run the final HDR stills through PS for only a few enhancements. ...

Ricoh Theta V versus Ricoh Theta Z1 ron0987 24 5 monthsron0987 (1189): @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 5 monthsWingman (685): 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 5 monthslilnitsch (596): @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

best camera for outside photos fotoguy 4 6 monthsWingman (685): 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 6 monthsleonherbert (591): @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 6 monthsWingman (685): Here is a link to the model with the film development room captured. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=GAxrzxDq2js 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 6 monthsWingman (685): 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 https://www.digitalcamerawarehouse.com.au/ricoh-theta-z1 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 7 monthsChangesin3d (70): 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...

RICOH Tours - Automated VR Tours DanSmigrod 2 8 monthsizoneguy (343): 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 8 monthsleonvanzweel (512): 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 8 monthsTomLeinbaugh (6): The Zillow app automatically adds many of the navigational arrows between spaces, but I added some myself later.
