What if you could 'cut the cord' to transfer your panos easily from your Theta V to your GoThru account? Yes, without cables. Say it with me... #cutthecord
This short tutorial shows you how to do this easily with GoThru's Theta V plugin app.
Google Trusted Photographers & Real Estate Agents Support The Ricoh Theta V 360 Camera
One of the leading 360 camera devices in the marketplace is the tiny but powerful Ricoh Theta V, released in 2017, which packs a 4K sensor in a slim candy-bar body with a 180-degree lens on its front and back. It connects to a smartphone via either a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection, and the Theta app (Android & iOS) can be used to transfer panoramic images and also works as a remote viewfinder.
