Good to Know

While our image enhancement shines during rendering, remember that panoramas captured via a connected Ricoh might not match the quality of your smartphone's native camera. Also, the panorama quality varies with the Ricoh model – for instance, the Theta Z1 outshines the Theta V in image clarity.

Note: for this guide, we've used a Ricoh Theta V. Keep in mind that the pairing process and image quality might differ with other Ricoh models.

Start capturing panoramas with Ricoh Theta and Nodalview

1. Set your Ricoh on your tripod

Place it in the center of the room, and step out of the capture field (don't go too far though... 🙃 )

2. Click SHOOT

from the capture screen of the Nodalview application. As soon as the capture is done, the processing of your panorama starts.

3. Validate (save) the preview you get of your panorama

or discard it.

4. Name your panorama

Remember that 1 panorama = 1 room

5. Continue the capture

To return to the panoramas tab of the property and capture others, click on the cross at the bottom left of the screen.

Once you've finished, let them transfer, and once they are available on your webapp, you can put them together to build a virtual tour.
