Well I went ahead and bought and tested it. Right now to do a 7 bracket shoot in the Theta S it was taking 45 seconds. This is at 1/6, 1/15, 1/50, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500 and 1/1000. So the Theta V using the exact same settings as it’s the same app did the same shoot in 20 seconds. A little more than twice as fast. As a person who relies on HDR’s and bracketing this is a great speed up. Looking at image quality the Theta V has improved quiet a bit. Things that were not sharp, like air conditioning vents which were blurry on the S are now sharp on the V. I am good with my purchase and can’t wait to start developing add-ons for it.
