Thanks for keeping this thread going, John. I always enjoy seeing what you are doing with your Theta.

Thanks, Mike. It's such a fun camera to play with!

Ride to Allentown NJ
Theta, the action cam The bumpy parts of the path require more stabilising that what the camera can provide, though!

I recently purchased a Insta360 OneX from my brother. The still image quality is a step behind the Ricoh V but the video image quality (particularly the stabilization) is pretty incredible.


Note that the camera is directly mounted to the handlebars of a twin cylinder motorcycle! Impressive. The workflow, however, is pretty tedious, and I prefer the usability of the Theta.

That is indeed incredible stabilisation! And the video quality is way better than my old Theta S - but so would a Theta V be.

One thing I miss with the Theta line is the ability to change batteries and use memory cards. Not a problem in day-to-day use at home, but when travelling I'd like the option of carrying multiple batteries and cards. I guess a power bank and off-loading onto the phone is a workaround, though.

Hi, I thought you guys would be interested to know that we are using Thetas to build virtual tours of our work environments. This allows new employees to go on an induction tour, without entering a hazardous environment.

That is interesting indeed. Do you know what software is used to build the tours?

Of course, if one wants to "support" our favourite big brother it's possible to supply images for Google Street View, too. Add 50 or more images and (if you want to) you'll be added to Google's list of "Trusted Pro" 360 photographers. No, I'm not a Trusted Pro

I'll check with the GIS department, and get back to you. It's a big, interactive tour that starts with a 360 drone panorama, on which you click on icons, to go to the individual Theta images.

Hi people. I checked with our GIS department, and they are using Pano2 VR to build tours.

Thanks! Looks like it can output html5, too.

Which Theta model do they use?

At the moment we're using a Theta V, which is a replacement for a previous V that 'fell' with the tripod on top of it! Unfortunately the lenses are rather expensive to replace, and a new camera was the better option.


Depending on how demand for the tours goes, we are planning to get a Z in the new year.

I have been considering getting Theta Z. Waiting for the price to drop a little.
