Hi This is my first post.
My name is David
I’ve recently bought a Theta V and am loving it. I am a full time artist and this little camera is super fun to play with.
I look forward to getting into plug-in development but I currently am playing around with the things that don’t take so much programming and just getting to know the camera and it’s abilities.
I have a few requests and have found at least one bug that I can recreate on the theta shooting app for iphone.
Where should I direct these comments and suggestions?
Does the community board speak directly with Ricoh or should I send this info directly to their team?
I’ve been watching some of the youtube coverage provided by Craig and am excited to help out once I get the API and SDK stuff installed and running smoothly.
For now I will just put my ideas and knows issues up here in case someone has the programming skills to jump on the ideas or the fixes…
First the issue/bug I have found pertains to triggering a shot via the volume up on ios app
Every time I use [volume up] to take a photo it breaks the shutter operation for volume up until i use the volume down button.
this same bug doesn’t happen on the ipad (maybe someone can check on their iphone as i only have the Iphone 6s running 12.0.1)
This is a pain because I am trying to use a bluetooth remote to trigger the camera and it only works once, until you press volume down.
I am using a cheap bluetooth shutter I had laying around. I saw Craig’s video on using the Mesh IOT button but those things are way overpriced. I thought I would try this route and it almost works except for this strange bug.
How easy would it be to have a plug in like the Mesh IOT plugin that uses the cheaper bluetooth devices like this one I’m using? It would need only to intercept the bluetooth command, The device has two buttons. One labelled iOS and one labeled Android.
You can find them easily on the internet by searching bluetooth shutter remote, mine even says Camera 360 and I’ve had it sitting in a box for a coupe years.
If each button could be mapped individually even the better!
My other question is Why on the PC app are the only options to sign into theta360.com with facebook and twitter.
I prefer not to use either of those to access third party sites. Can’t we login with the theta registered email??
I have a few ideas for plugins.wondering is anyone in the theta dev community taking programming ideas on?
finally I bought the Underwater housing and am wondering how people are editing the video for best stitching when inside the housing? I’ve noticed the stitching isn’t perfect when using the iphone app. I haven’t tried the pc app yet but hopefully it will handle the stitching better?
Thanks and look forward to this great camera getting even better.
