    How do I reset my Ricoh Compass Calibration?

    Sometimes when you're shooting, you will run into an issue with your RicohCamera's Calibration. Your 3D tour can be rejected when your calibration is off as panos will be off calibration, as seen below. 

    If you see the error below, then your camera's compass may need calibration. 

    You will need to move the camera in a figure 8 to calibrate, as seen in the video below.
