Top four problems with taking construction and inspection photos

Photography errors

①Not getting full photo coverage

We sometimes have to go back to the site to take photographs again after being told later that something was not photographed.

Conveying of information

②Difficult to convey an image of the site

It is difficult to convey an image of the site by just piecing together photos showing fragments of the site.

Photo management

③Hard to manage a huge number of site photos

Since the number of site photos is large, it is complicated to share the information with the related parties and manage the information.

Shooting in narrow areas, dark areas, and high places

④Difficult to shoot in narrow places, dark places, and high places

Photographing in awkward positions and bringing a stepladder to photograph high places makes the work inefficient. Photographing can even be dangerous sometimes.

RICOH THETA is recommended for shooting construction and inspection

Shooting range is fully covered by dual fisheye lens

The ceiling and floor can also be shot in addition to horizontal panorama in one shot. This ensures full photo coverage.

Overwhelming amount of site information with 360-degree photos

Since the site photos are connected as one 360-degree photo, even people who have never been to the site can immediately grasp the whole picture.

Small number of photos enables smart photo management

Since the shooting range covered by 360-degree photos is huge, management with a small number of photos is possible.
There are also plenty of software applications for the construction industry that support 360-degree photos, so you can manage your information by site and in chronological order.

Difficult-to-capture points can also be shot easily

You can easily and quickly shoot in confined spaces and high places because you do not need to worry about the composition of photos. This contributes to safety management of site since the time shooting in awkward positions and using a stepladder can be reduced.
