The Face of the Camera

While shooting using Ui Capture App, the Face should direct the Virtual North at all times. The Face of the Ricoh Theta is represented by the Theta Icon. The screen that displays the shooting information is located at the back of the Camera.

How do I reset my Ricoh Compass Calibration?

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