Multi-bracketing Made Efficient
If you are having trouble with the HDR multi-bracketing settings of your Ricoh Theta Z1 then this application is made for you!
This application will take care of handling the multi-bracketing settings for you.
How to use the app
How to connect: Follow the simple instruction to connect the application to your Ricoh Theta Z1
Capture Preview: You can display the preview of the pano you are taking. In the settings menu, you can disable the preview if you want.
Brackets Settings: In the settings option, you have the list of your pre-established brackets. These brackets have been set after the first capture. So the number 0 is equivalent to the shutter speed of the first taken picture (The number 0 is not shown in the settings). The rest of the numbers will match with the shutter speed going up or down from the 0. The numbers represent the number of steps similar to EV-2, EV0, EV+2. You can add steps, delete steps, or reset to default.
Brackets Capture: When taking the picture with every bracket, you will see a loading showing the progress of the capture with the number of brackets. This step can take up to 30-40 seconds before hitting 100%.
Pictures Select: When the capture is done you will have access to every picture with their different exposure. From here you can select to download or delete the pictures you want.
Pictures Download: The pictures will automatically be added to your camera but if needed you can select some pictures and download them directly to your phone or your tablet.
Pictures Delete: Sometimes, they are pictures that are too overexposed or underexposed. Make sure to delete the pictures that are completely white or black. The deleted picture will be automatically removed from your camera.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do the images go? All the pictures will automatically go on your camera.
Do I have to manage the pictures on the UI Capture app? No, you will manage, transfer, and delete the images using your Ricoh app and Ricoh Transfer app. Just like before. All images are stored on the camera, not in the app. However, on the UI capture app, you can select some pictures and download them directly on your phone/tablet. The delete button can be used to delete some pictures exposure directly from your camera.
Do I lose everything if my screen saver goes on? No, you will not lose everything. It can cause an error message to appear but will not affect the end results.
Can I exit and re-enter the app while the Theta is busy capturing? Sure you can exit and re-enter the app, but make sure to at least get the first capture at 20%. It will hang up until you return to the app.
What is the meaning behind the numbers in the brackets settings -16, -12, 0, ...? The number 0 is equivalent to the shutter speed of the first taken picture (The number 0 is not shown in the settings). The rest of the numbers will match with the shutter speed going up or down from the 0. The numbers represent the number of steps similar to EV-2, EV0, EV+2.
I have a lot of too dark or too white pictures. Which bracket should I remove? To avoid images that are too dark or too white, you can narrow the step number. So by example if it is too dark you can change : -16, -12, -8, -4 for -12, -9, -6, -3.
