Outside-in Shooting BETA

Camera Models: X

Developer: Ricoh Company, Ltd.

Technologies: Visual SLAM technology


This plug-in generates images with the subject at the center and enables you to view the subject from various directions by shooting a 360° video while moving around the subject. Camera position information* detected with Visual SLAM technology is assigned to 360° videos. This provides a new video experience in 360° that differs from conventional playback methods.


Playing back the shot video on the camera allows you to view the video frame-by-frame by swiping on the screen. The subject is placed at the center and can be viewed from different directions. This is perfect for seeing the exact shape of an object.


Relative position information based on self-position estimation (this is not position information from a GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System))

Videos may not be generated depending on the shooting environment and conditions. Click here for details.
