Using the RICOH THETA app to capture images

If you have no cell coverage while you are shooting one of your tours, we temporarily recommend that you use the RICOH THETA app. You can find the app in the app/play store.

Please be sure you do not have both apps open at the same time.

Set up your camera in steps 1-10 below. If you are going to be far from your camera, you can also set the timer option.

  1. Install the THETA app on your mobile device.  

  2. Go to your mobile devices wifi setting and select the THETA as your wifi network

  3. Launch the THETA app and tap the registered camera name. For example: THETAYL00123456.OSC

  4. Tap the white Shooting button if not already in shooting mode

  5. Tap the gear wheel in the upper right corner

  6. Make sure SHOOTING method is set to Normal shooting

  7. Make sure Display after shooting (for ios), Postview (for android) is set - this will transfer your photos to your mobile device's camera gallery

  8. Tap Done
  9. Make sure Auto is set in the lower right corner

  10. Make sure Option Setting is set to HDR Rendering

  11. Make sure your EV is set t 0

  12. Tap the white shutter button to take your photo.

At this point you have set up your camera for the best exposure/quality image and taken your first image. The image will transfer to your phone's gallery. They might be in a folder/album called Theta.

Move to the next room and do step 10 again.
