Hi Dan -

I have just received my Theta V and the helmet mount kit from Nodal Ninja. One thought that occurs to me is this: How do I keep the camera straight up and down? Or does Cupix somehow level out un-level shots?? It would seem that this would be a big issue if the camera isn't level and square.....

I'm going to work with it tomorrow all day, so I'll let you know what I find out.In the mean time, if you have any suggestions, please let me know.



Hi [Redacted],

That's GREAT!

Sounds like you found this WGAN Forum discussion helpful:

Helmet Cam for Google Street View: Helmet + Adhesive Mount + Ricoh Theta V

The Ricoh Theta V automatically "knows" how to set the vertical for each shot.

For clarification, I have shot with a selfie pole parallel to the horizon and the Ricoh images were oriented perfectly.

When shooting a large space with "Helmet Cam" ... set the Ricoh Theta V to interval shooting.
