Does it work well with Go-Pro Fusion?

Implemented

Realtor new to 360 and getting ready to purchase a 360 camera.  I want to purchase the Go-Pro Fusion and would like to experiment with Cupix but I'm not finding anything that links to two together in terms of reviews, responses, etc.

  • Hi, Mikhail.


    First of all, thanks for your great interest in our service. It depends on your personal preference, but we think the HDR mode on Ricoh Theta V  is better than the higher megapixel. There wasn't a significant difference in the image quality and detail when we tested both cameras. However, considering the efficiency of workflow to create a 3D tour using our service, the Ricoh Theta V is absolutely more convenient than the Mi sphere. The Ricoh Theta V has an embed stitching software which allows you to directly upload to our server without stitching every single image after shooting. The Mi Sphere requires you one more step, stitching a dual fish-eye image to an equirectangular 360º panoramic photo. 


    For the second question, averagely it takes 5 seconds to capture a scene with the HDR mode while the normal mode takes 3 seconds. For your information, the Mi Sphere also takes about 2 seconds, but you need to stitch the images after shooting as we aforementioned. 


    Again, the decision is up to you. You also need to take the price of the device and other things into your account, so we can't firmly say that you should buy a certain device. Take your time to consider all the situation and find a suitable camera for you. We can give you more information if you needed.


    Best Regards,

  • I am actually looking at either the Mi Sphere or the Ricoh Theta V. Mi Sphere has 24 MP, while Ricoh Theta only has 14MP. Is the image quality with HDR on Ricoh Theta V much better than the Mi Sphere? Is it worth such a drop in MPs, which potentially loses detail?


    I have two more questions:

    Also from what I saw online HDR takes multiple photos at ones, does that take longer? 

    Also, which of the two cameras have less post production work before uploading them to Cupix?


    Thank you.

  • Hi, Jay.

     

    The Bracketing mode is possible in the Mi Sphere, but not the HDR setting. The HDR option is available in the Ricoh Theta S&V.

     

    Thanks.

  • Thank you both for your responses.  I went with the Fusion after see some tours with it.  I know there will be a learning curve but hopefully I can master it.  Quality was the major factor.

  • Mi Sphere is a great option.  I have the Go Pro Fusion but I hear Mi Sphere can do bracketing/HDR.  but need to confirm.  

  • Yes, as we have tested, Go-Pro Fusion works fine with Cupix. 


    And it has the best image quality below $1K price range. 

    But if you are not familiar with tech, I am a bit worried about its buggy stitching software. 


    Currently, we recommend Ricoh Theta V with HDR mode for better quality photos. 

    But if you prefer the quality of images, Go-Pro Fusion might work.
