Although I have an Android phone, I heard a rumor that the iPhone app can have timelapse pictures faster than 8 seconds. Does anyone know if this is true?
The time delay between shots is due to the stitching of the image from dual fisheye to equirectangular. Either the camera needs to have a faster processor or RICOH needs to allow storage of dual fisheye images on the camera.
I believe the poll should be adjusted to reflect the request for
unprocessed still images in dual-fisheye for HDRi special effects to speed up later processing with the RICOH THETA desktop software as part of a workflow
See this post. utjduo explains the requirement in the posts above that.
I think this is different from RAW images.
I think this also came up in relation to the HDR request for the special effects industry where they wanted to download the dual fisheye images and then then batch process them using RICOH software (which does not exist right now)
