Theta V body - the Wi-Fi logo will blink when Wi-Fi is on, and glow solid when there is a mobile device connected.
Theta Z1 LCD – the Wi-Fi logo will be solid when Wi-Fi is on. This light does not mean there is an active connection with a mobile device. Verify in your mobile device if there is a Wi-Fi connection.
No, Bluetooth on the 360° camera should be turned off. VR Site Tour only uses Wi-Fi to connect to the 360° camera.
Download the Ricoh Theta app and use it to take an image. This will sync the date and time on the 360° camera.
The 360° camera USB data transfer plug-in is active in the 360° camera and should be turned off. To turn off, hold down the mode button on the side of the 360° camera until the plug-in menu appears. Press the Mode button until Exit Plug-in is highlighted. Hit the Shutter button to confirm and exit.
Approximately 60 minutes of video irrespective of the shooting mode. The shooting time is the total combined time when continuously shooting the maximum 25 minute-long 2K video and 5 minute-long 4K video. (No more videos can be shot regardless of the amount of battery remaining because the recording space becomes full.)
Connect the 360° camera to a computer using the included USB-C cable. The power lamp on the side of the camera lights green when charging, and turns off when fully charged.
No, using an external battery pack will void the 360° camera warranty.
Images can be taken from as far away as 200 feet with clear line of site. Inside, a maximum distance of 30 feet should be observed. This distance may vary depending on the interior physical environment.
Maintaining the same direction when taking images will create a guided tour that has the same orientation for each location marker.
Use the monopod to maintain a consistent height regardless of user height. Use the level to ensure the 360° image is plumb to the ground.
The threaded rod is screwed in between the top of the monopod and the bottom of the 360° camera to create additional height.
With the extension rod, the aperture of the camera will be approximately 71” above the ground.
