THETA Tips

Shoot

  • It’s easy! We will introduce a method to shoot people having a meal.

    As you know, taking photos of food and the surrounding area with many people can require some effort and be difficult as shown in the above photos.
    Using a smartphone to take the selfie can cut people out of the shot, and it is not easy to capture the food or people’s expressions.

    Steps to shoot using THETA

    1.Set THETA to self-timer mode and attach it to a monopod.

    (Setting the self-timer instead of using the remote shutter means you do not need to check the smartphone screen and gives you more freedom to pose because both hands are free.)

    *Click here for how to set the self-timer mode for each camera model.

    Simply position THETA in the middle of the table, press the shutter button and then pose!
    If the self-timer is at the default setting, the photo is taken five seconds after pressing the shutter button.

    Important points: Gather the food dishes around THETA as much as possible.
    You can also create a more dynamic photo by having people opening their mouth to eat and holding their fork while posing.

    How to edit captured 360-degree images

    1.Open the THETA+ app and then select the captured image.

    2.Select the Little Planet view and rotate the image so that the ceiling lies at the center.

    3.Crop the image to a preferred size and then select the top right check button to save and share the image.

    A fun remembrance photo framed by food!

    You can easily store away a memory of the food and people with you on the day into a single photo.

  • It’s easy with THETA! We will introduce a method to shoot group photos that convey a fun atmosphere.

    As you know, taking group photos with many people can require some effort and be difficult as shown in the above photos.
    Using a smartphone to take the selfie can cut people out of the shot, and it is not easy to capture the mood of the scene or people’s expressions.

    Steps to shoot and edit using THETA

    1.Set THETA to self-timer mode and attach it to a monopod.

    *Click here for how to set the self-timer mode for each camera model.

    2. Place THETA* on an extended monopod at the center of the group and then have each person line up around the camera at even intervals. *Please keep THETA horizontal with the ground as you raise the monopod. If you incorrectly hold THETA at an angle, the monopod will appear in the image.
    3. Move as close to THETA as possible, raise both hands in the air and then press the shutter button.
    4. For the default setting, the photo is taken five seconds after pressing the shutter button.

    Bad example: When people stand too far and keep too much distance from THETA, the photo has too much space and creates a feeling of loneliness in the shot.

    You can see that getting close to THETA and simply raising both hands creates a fun 360-degree group photo.

    When shooting to create a fun atmosphere.

    When shooting as normal.

  • People who own a THETA SC2 can take beautiful 360-degree photos, even in locations subject to extreme levels of dark-bright contrast such as concert halls and out of car windows.

    1. Connect the smartphone to THETA, and display the shooting screen.

    2. Select “Lens-by-Lens Exposure” from the presets and shoot.

    3.Select the face icon in the center of the upper section of the shooting screen.

    Since exposure is adjusted for each lens, point the lenses in both the dark and light directions separately to shoot.

    <Switching the shooting mode from the camera body>

    Press the Mode button on the side of the camera body to switch shooting mode from “Auto” to “Preset.”

    *”Face,” “Night View,” and “Lens-by-Lens Exposure” can only be selected from the app.

  • People who own a THETA SC2 can use Face mode to take good photos of faces with ease.

    1. Connect the smartphone to THETA, and display the shooting screen.

    2. Select the face icon in the center of the upper section of the shooting screen.

    3. Select “Face” from the presets and shoot.

    Shooting hand-held will result in the user’s hand appearing in a significant portion of the photo. Accordingly, we recommend that you set the camera in self-timer mode when shooting, and use a monopod or a tripod to shoot.

    *Pressing the self-timer button at the bottom on the side of the camera body causes the timer mark on the OLED on the front of the camera body to light.

    <Switching the shooting mode from the camera body>

    Press the Mode button on the side of the camera body to switch shooting mode from “Auto” to “Preset.”

    *”Face,” “Night View,” and “Lens-by-Lens Exposure” can only be selected from the app.

  • People who own a THETA SC2 can use Night View mode to reduce noise easily when shooting at night.

    1. Connect the smartphone to THETA, and display the shooting screen.

    2. Select the face icon in the center of the upper section of the shooting screen.

    3. Select “Night View” from the presets and shoot.

    *This mode uses a composite created from multiple images, so fix the camera in place with a tripod or something similar when shooting.

    <Switching the shooting mode from the camera body>

    Press the Mode button on the side of the camera body to switch shooting mode from “Auto” to “Preset.”

    *”Face,” “Night View,” and “Lens-by-Lens Exposure” can only be selected from the app.

  • THETA has a front side and rear side, and it is recommended to face the front side, the side without the shutter button, toward the subject that the image will be centered on.

    The side without the shutter button is the front side, and the side with the shutter button is the rear side.
    By facing the front side without the shutter button toward the subject that the image will be centered on, the subject captured with the front side facing toward it will be displayed in "First view" when you are viewing your photos.

  • If you hold THETA in your hand to take a photo from the device itself, your fingers may appear extra large in the photo. On the other hand, capturing images remotely by connecting THETA to your smartphone via Wi-Fi can be troublesome. To solve these issues, use the self-timer mode. When set to the self-timer mode, THETA will automatically take a photo a few seconds after the shutter button is pressed. Try taking a photo by mounting THETA on a monopod or tripod and then pressing the shutter button and moving away from the camera. You’ll find that you can easily take natural-looking 360-degree images.

    There are two setting methods to shoot in the self-timer mode.

    1) Setting using the THETA device

    2) Setting from the RICOH THETA basic app

    1) Setting using the THETA device

    ①Press and hold the Wi-Fi button (while the power is turned off).

    ② While doing so, press the power button to start THETA.

    After carrying out the above steps to start THETA, the camera status lamp will light up in green. Press the shutter button on the camera to start the countdown, and a photo will be taken after five seconds.

    *For THETA Z1, press the Fn button once to switch to the self-timer mode.

    2) Setting from the RICOH THETA basic app

    ①After connecting THETA to your smartphone, tap the settings button on the top right of the shooting screen.

     

    ③Tap the self-timer and specify the time until the shutter is released.

    After carrying out the setting above, the camera status lamp will light up in green. Press the shutter button to start the countdown, and a photo will be taken after five seconds.

    *For THETA Z1 and THETA V, install the self-timer plug-in for easier shooting with the self-timer.

    To install the plug-in, click here.

    For installation instructions, click here.

  • THETA makes a shutter sound to notify users that a photo has been taken. This shutter sound makes it easy for users to know when the photo has been taken, but there are places and occasions where it is better not to have a shutter sound. THETA’s shutter sound can be turned off and its volume settings can be changed from the RICOH THETA basic app.

    Switching off the shutter sound is recommended for shooting in quiet locations, or when shooting people’s natural expressions. The shutter sound setting stays as it is once it has been turned off, so if you feel that you need the shutter sound to notify you when the photo has been taken, return the sound volume back to the original.

    ①Tap the gear icon on the top right of the RICOH THETA basic app.

    ②Tap “Camera shutter volume.”

    ③Select “OFF.”

  • When shooting at a new location for the first time, there are many users who want to see what sort of images they can shoot in that place by first checking the image on their smartphones. For such users, we recommend shooting remotely with “Display after shooting” switched on so you can check images immediately after shooting.

    Carry out the settings in the following procedure to automatically transfer images immediately after shooting. This will enable you to easily check what sort of images were captured right on the spot.

    ①Tap the gear icon on the top right of the RICOH THETA basic app.

    ②Switch on “Display after shooting.”

    ③Capture an image using the shutter button on the app.

    After turning on “Display after shooting”, image you took will be transferred soon after shooting.

  • THETA has a built-in sensor that detects camera tilt so the vertical plane of spherical images is always recorded correctly regardless of THETA’s angle when shooting. This means that there is no need to hold THETA perpendicular to the ground but you must be careful because holding THETA sideways at the same height as your face, as in the example, will cause you to mess up the shot as your own hand will hide your face.
    Just set your thumb on the THETA shutter button, relax your grip while not worrying about slightly tilting the camera, extend your arm and shoot the photo.

    Point the lens to the front

    When you have set up THETA, as long as the lens is not hidden by your fingers and it is all visible, you can take a photo without your fingers covering your face.

    Laying THETA on its side

    You can still shoot the vertical plane correctly even when going to the extreme of laying THETA on its side. However, this may cause your face and body to be hidden by your hand.

  • THETA uses two fish-eye lenses with a wide angle of view that exceeds 180° and combines two images shot simultaneously to create 360° spherical images. In addition to having the feature of being able to photograph a wide area, fish-eye lenses characteristically make distant subjects appear smaller and make nearby subjects appear larger, and can easily produce a feeling of remarkable perspective. Deciding the distance from the subject with awareness of this feeling of perspective allows the photographer to create intense impact and clear separation in a photo such as size differences that are not actually possible. It is also possible to create a feeling of perspective when editing such as Little Planet.

    Greater impact the closer you are to objects

    Objects appear smaller with THETA fish-eye lenses even when just 1 meter away. While quite the opposite, the feeling of perspective is exaggerated the closer THETA is to the subject, and you can see that the subject appears much more impressive.

  • The same height as your face

    The form of the face looks natural but tends to appear backlit when shooting against bright backgrounds such as the sky, and this causes the face to appear dark.

    Stretch your arms above your head

    Raising the camera to a position where you look up also makes your expression appear bright and clear. A good tip is to raise your chin, not just your gaze, and face the camera.

    Place it on your head

    When you don’t want to photograph your face, place THETA on top of your head. Your hand will appear a lot in the shot but you can shoot while hiding your face and body.

  • Capturing an image of you eating with someone is difficult when using a smartphone. But using THETA, such images can be easily captured.

    Image Taken with a Smartphone

    In selfies taken with a smartphone, faces and food are often cut off at the edges.

    Steps to Shoot and Edit Using THETA

    ①Set THETA to the self-timer mode.

    *For instructions on how to set the self-timer mode in each model, refer to the details under “Shooting in the Self-Timer Mode” on this page.

    ②Mount THETA on a tripod and place it at the center of the table. Adjust the tripod so that THETA is at your eye level.

    *If you don’t have a tripod, you can place THETA directly on the table.

    ③Press the shutter button and smile!

    ④Open the THETA+ app and select the image that you captured.

    ⑤ Turn your smartphone sideways in the landscape orientation and select "Dual Screen."
    ⑥Adjust the image such that the faces and food are positioned at the center of the image.

    ⑦Save to camera roll and share on SNS!

    The scene of both of you and your friend enjoying your meals is captured neatly in one photo.

    For the editing app THETA+, click here(iOS/Android).

  • THETA captures every direction so during the daytime while outdoors sunlight enters the lens and the image will have a mixture of areas with direct sunlight and back lighting.
    This will cause no problems for front lighting in which light hits the main subject. However, the subject will look darker than it appears when there is back lighting.
    In places surrounded by a dark environment, such as at night, people will also appear too bright. In such a case, be sure to use exposure compensation or the HDR rendering function that enable you to either adjust the brightness by compensating with exposure or increase the width of tone exposure.

    Adjusting using exposure compensation when the main subject is dark or bright
    EV±0

    With the sun at the subject's back, in other words, back lighting. Shooting using automatic exposure will set the brightness of the photo based on the bright sky. This will cause the front side of a person in shadow to look darker than they appear.

    EV+0.7

    Adjust the brightness using the exposure compensation function. While checking the results of the compensation at live view, ensure that the brightness is such that the subject's facial expression is clearly visible and the background does not have significant blown out highlights before taking the shot.

    Using HDR rendering for scenes with a big difference in light and darkness
    Without compensation

    Part of the image has blown out highlights and there is gradient loss.

    HDR rendering

    HDR rendering is a function that renders images that were shot continuously while changing the brightness automatically. It allows you to obtain images that have far less blown out highlights and blocked up shadows than images without compensation. It is essential to secure the camera in place such as using a tripod to prevent the camera from moving during the rendering process.

  • THETA can stand up by itself on a flat surface but we do not recommend this method. The reason is that THETA has a high center of gravity and accidents may occur such as the camera falling over and the lenses can get scratched. Be sure to use a stand or tripod when you want to secure THETA so that you don’t regret a careless accident. If you have a stand or tripod, every single THETA function will be at your disposal such as slow shutter shooting and HDR rendering. It is also necessary to use remote shooting or the self-timer function when using a stand or tripod.

    Taking beautiful photos even in dark places

    There is no blur even with slow shutter shooting for nightscapes or in dark rooms. You are free to take photos how you like by lowering ISO sensitivity with the ISO priority mode and using HDR rendering with the automatic mode, etc.

    Taking photos without people

    Secure THETA on a tripod and use the self-timer or remote shooting. If the photographer is hidden from view, you can shoot a spherical image without any people on the screen.

Edit

  • Images captured on THETA are to be viewed from your smartphone, not from THETA itself. For this reason, images must be transferred from THETA to your smartphone after being captured. Images can be transferred one by one immediately after being shot, or with multiple images in one batch. As the transfer of 360-degree images takes some time, we recommend transferring multiple images in one batch after you have finished shooting, rather than transferring images one by one each time the shutter button is pressed. Transferring the day’s worth of images in one batch during travel time or after you get home is also a good idea.

     

     

    (1) After connecting via Wi-Fi, tap “Not transferred” in “Images in camera,” and then tap the image selection icon at the top right.

    (2) Insert a check mark (㋹ icon) for the images that you wish to transfer and tap “Transfer” at the bottom right.

    (3) Images with a check mark will be transferred from THETA to your smartphone in one batch.

    (4) When all the images in (3) have been transferred, tap “Device images” to display the images saved in your smartphone.

    *In the usual camera roll, images captured using THETA will not be displayed in the 360-degree format.

    (5) Tap an image to view it as a 360-degree image.
