360º Construction Photographer Wanted: [Your Location?]7285

Hi All,

A company reached out to the We Get Around Network late Friday night (15 June 2018) for this project in one market for a 360º Construction Photographer:

✓ Walk parts of a stadium during construction, once per week: next 5 months
Pay by the day (8 hours) (about 25 full days over the course of 5 months)
✓ [Redacted] will provide a Ricoh Theta V for data capture (plus, interior lighting)
✓ First shoot the week of 18 June 2018 (this week)

Did you miss out on this opportunity because you are not on the We Get Around Network Find a Matterport Pro Map?

Will you miss out when this company sources other locations with the We Get Around Network?

Additionally, buy a Ricoh Theta V - or other under $500 360º 1-click camera and gets some first-hand experience with the workflow and start thinking about how you can make money with a 360º 1-click camera.

Best,

Dan

Video: 4 360º Cameras | Video Courtesy of LIFE in 360 Ben Claremont

Hi All,

Excellent side-by-side comparison by Ben Claremont with LIFE in 360.

I would add these considerations (not covered in the video)

✓ Google Street View certified
✓ Interval 360ºs (essential for CUPIX)
✓ Time-lapse Video (essential for CUPIX)
✓ API (Ricoh Theta V)
✓ APP ecosystem (Ricoh Theta V)

Plus, unless you have a project that will pay for your camera today, I would wait until the 2018 Google Street View Summit to see if there are new camera announcements and/or which cameras meet Google's Street View Ready certification.

Amazon (As of 26 April 2018)

Ricoh Theta V ($397)
Xiaomi Mi Sphere ($300)
GoPro Fusion ($700)
Insta360 One ($300)

Best,

Dan

P.S. It's essential that every Matterport Pro have an under $500 360º Camera. If you publishing from Matterport to Google Street View, you need 360ºs to connect the business to the Street. While you could do it with Matterport 360º Views, it's the wrong tool except if you just need a few 360ºs.

If I was a WGAN Basic, Standard or Premium Member in this one market (with public profiles on the We Get Around Network Find a Pro Map) ...

I would not find it fair to tell the dozens of other WGAN Forum Members - in that market - to join because there is a Client actively buying DAYS of a Pro's time.

The bigger picture for those that are not WGAN Basic, Standard or Premium Members ...

@SpaceView360

Yes. MadVenture (aka Xiaomi Mi Sphere) is another great 360º 1-click camera to buy.

WGAN-TV NCTech iStar Pulsar at the Expo at the 2018 SPAR 3D Expo and Conference

@Metroplex360

NCTech has not released pricing or availability for their backpack (or car mount).

At SPAR3D Expo & Conference, I learned that NCTech is still finishing the design of the backpack and car mount for its iSTAR Pulsar that they said would start shipping last Friday (15 June 2018).

Once the NCTech backpack and car mount are available, it's a seminal moment for large-scale 360º content creation - charging by the mile instead of by the SQ FT for Reality Capture Experts.

Please see this WGAN Forum discussion:

SPAR3D-Thinking about buying an NCTech iStar Pulsar?

In the video (above), I answer FAQs for those that are thinking about buying the NCTech iSTAR Pulsar. In the videos (below), you'll see the 2018 Google Street View presentation ... premiering the NCTech iSTAR Pulsar and my interview with Neil Tocher, co-founder and Chief Technical Officer of NCTech. All three videos are - must watch - for anyone considering buying the NCTech iSTAR Pulsar.

Best,

Dan
