I’m curious about the new Z1. They’re still hard to get in the US - announced and available soon! - but I know some people who have one.
I got some quick responses back from him that indicate the Z1 is going to be a great device for Photographers of all types.
- What is your overall impression of the Z1?
- As a Google Street Views Trusted Photographer, what is the most important improvement?
Image quality. It’s extraordinarily super high.
- Is taking pictures in RAW format an advantage for Google Street View photographers?
Absolutely, yes. I sent the feedbacks to RICOH in order to get RAW files under the HDR Mode.
- Is the red flare with direct sunlight still there?
No! See the screenshot. THETA V or S/SC would have got the big red dot there. I removed the tripod. but not done red dot.
