Single Shot Capture with Helmet

Single Shot Capture with Helmet


When creating captures in Single Shot Mode with a 360° camera mounted on a helmet, your goal is to take 360° photos in a way that generates crisp, clear images.

Best Practices

Posture and Physical Awareness

  • Make sure the camera is mounted at least 6 inches above helmet so the helmet does not dominate the bottom of the photos
  • Keep your head and body straight with arms at your sides so you do not block the camera lens with your fingers, hands, and arms during the capture
  • Remain still while taking photos so no movement, like breathing, swaying, or shaking, is introduced during the capture to cause blurriness in photos
  • Avoiding hitting the camera on doorways or low ceilings

Photo Location

There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting where to take each photo:

  • Take photos in locations that will best capture the space such as in the middle of a room, hallway, or on a landing
  • If possible, do not take photos too close to walls, doors, and other objects that will block the camera's line of sight

Capturing High Areas

Certain jobsites require you to photograph areas that are above the usual height of the 360° camera or in hard to reach areas.  In these situations, you can hold the helmet like a hand-held mount to capture these locations.

Also, we always strongly recommend that you practice this capture method with the hardware setup you plan to use before going onsite.
