Single Shot Capture with Tall Monopod

Single Shot Capture with Tall Monopod


When creating captures in Single Shot Mode with a 360° camera mounted on a tall monopod, 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 held at least 6 inches above the head so your head does not dominate the bottom of the photos
  • Keep your other arm at your side so you do not block the camera lens with your fingers, hands, and arm during the capture
  • Hold the monopod steady and 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

Specific job sites require you to photograph areas above the usual height of the 360° camera or in hard-to-reach areas.  In these situations, you can hold out the monopod and point the 360° camera to capture these locations.

We strongly recommend that you practice this capture method with the hardware setup you plan to use before going onsite.
