World War 2 Tunnels mapped with Theta Z1



Tight spaces, repetative patterns and unfriendly light conditions.

I had 3 LED "headlamps" attached to the base of the tripod. Whats the best lights to mount on a monopod that lights up in all directions?

@Joakim360

Way cool! And, with a Ricoh Theta Z!

Can you post a photo of the 3 LED headlamps" attached to the base of the tripod?

Thanks,

Dan

P.S. Cool "dollhouse" of the tunnels ...

@Joakim360 Interesting project! I too would like to see a PIC of your "headlight" set-up.

Curious: How did you hide from the camera for all of those shots in those tight spaces? Ricoh plug-in for delayed shooting between the front and back cameras, or lots of running back and forth? Thanks for sharing.

Hello @Joakim360

I'm also curious to know how you hid from the camera? Or did you use the Time Shift Shooting plugin?

Greetings and I hope you can get us out of doubt.

Hi

Thank you all for your replies. I will post a picture of the lighting setup tomorrow. Lets just say it has great improvement potential

I did go away and hide for every single pano and I have to say I think the Z1 is doing a great job keeping the wifi signal compared to the Theta V. This enviroment is not exactly wifi friendly.

@Joakim360 Thanks for the info. Looking forward to seeing your lighting set-up. For future shoots, you may want to consider installing the plug-in, "Time-Shift Shooting," found at:

https://pluginstore.theta360.com/

It's a real life-saver for shoots where you can't easily get out of the way of the shot and solves any issues related to WiFi as a result.

They also have a "Single Lens Shooting" plug-in, which works great as well.

@bryanhscott Can this be used with the matterport app. I have not heard of this been used for it. Would be great.

@leonherbert Unfortunately, no. Matterport does not support this. I am sorry I did not verify this before commenting. Based on your message, I just this moment found that out. This is highly regrettable. Regardless of the Theta plug-in used; Time-Shift or Single Lens, the MP Capture App takes over the camera and disregards the plug-in and other cam settings.

This is not the case with 360 Tour hosting providers who allow you to shoot, then upload your own spherical panos. I use EyeSpy360 (EyeSpy360.com) and they don't care which 360 cam you use. You have total control over the photos, can do your own post-processing, then upload and build your tour. Plus, you don't have to wait for the typical processing time lag. Depending on how fast you can run your mouse, the time to delivery of your tour is totally dependent on you (minutes, not hours). They also support taking 2D stills out of the panos (not as wide a view angle as MP), plus they support floor plans (in app) and Guided Tours. BTW - I am not trying to fly their flag - I just thought it interesting that they are among the very few who fill most of the gaps created by not using Matterport.

As a result of the above, I also just tested compatibility with Zillow 3D Home and am sorry to report they also do not support either plug-in.

@bryanhscott No Problem, hopefully matterport and or Ricoh will include the feature in the future. Pano2VR does a lot of what EyeSpy360 seems to do. I do not create tours using Pano2Vr but I use it to work on the tours I have uploaded to Google from Matterport.
