I was recently given a Richoh Theta S 360 degree camera. I messed around for quite some time and read many posts about how to shoot with it and edit the material. To save you the pain I went through I have put together this lo-fi rough and ready tutorial that should help you.

  1. I had just arranged to pick up a Theta s for a climate change campaign video this weekend, then seperately used the link from your book to look at your site for the first time…..voila! I think you may have saved me a whole lotta of time and frustration..cheers
