Ricoh Theta Stitcher & Lightroom Tutorial: Get Maximum Quality from your Theta Z1 | Video courtesy of The 360 Guy YouTube Channel (31 May 2019)

Hi All,

If you (just) got a Ricoh Theta Z1 – or are thinking about buying one – this video from 360º 1-Click Camera Subject Matter Expect The 360 Guy (Daniel) will likely be helpful.

The 360 Guy shows the workflow to get the best results from Adobe Lightroom + the Ricoh Theta Stitcher Plugin + the Ricoh Theta Z1 DNG RAW mode files will likely be helpful.

Have you tried this workflow yet? What are your thoughts versus automatic mode?

I would rather just shoot with a DSLR and stitch in PTGui. Much easier, quicker and better looking. The point of a one shot camera is doing one shot.

Totally agree. Whoever offers to stitch 360 manually does not seem to be doing many panos or just doing them for fun. The last Thursday I was doing a commercial project and did 330 panos outdoor with Theta V. It took me about 5 hours to shoot them and about 7 hours just to place them in correct spots with Pano2VR Pro(thanks Ricoh for bad GPS data with errors up to 50-70 meters).

I could not even imagine how much time would it take me for stitching all 330 panoramas.

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 on parallax error and poor image quality.
