Single Shot Capture with Tripod

TABLE OF CONTENTS

When creating captures in Single Shot Mode with a 360° camera mounted on a tripod, your goal is to take 360° photos in a way that generates crisp, clear images. You also want to make sure that you are not in these photos as well, so we strongly recommend hiding out of frame when taking photos.


Best Practices

The video below demonstrates a single shot capture that uses a 360° camera mounted on a tripod. Notice that our Cupix team member adheres to our recommended best practices for selecting where to take photos while using the hide-and-shoot method for tripods.


Hide-and-Shoot with Tripod

  • Make sure the tripod is steady and placed on a flat surface before leaving to avoid photo blurring or the camera falling over
  • Hide out of frame when taking each photo so you do not appear in every photo
  • When hiding, make sure you are still within range of the camera WiFi, otherwise, the camera will not respond when taking photos
  • When moving the tripod from one location to the next, avoid hitting the camera on walls, doorways, and other obstructions at the job site


Photo Location

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

  • Place the tripod where the camera will best capture the location, such as in the middle of a room, hallway, or on a landing
  • If possible, do not place the tripod too close to walls, doors, and other objects that will block the camera's line of sight

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