One-Shot virtual tour systems try to turn customers against the stitching systems, claiming that mistakes will occur if you try to stitch photos together.

They will tell you that you can shoot 15 tours a day with their virtual tour camera system and will be sure to leave your competition in the dust.

But when I started looking at companies that used stitching, their images looked SO MUCH BETTER than mine.

As it became apparent that my dreaded one-shot lens was getting me nowhere, I finally sold my virtual tour camera and one-shot lens on E-Bay.

People are promised a quicker, easier way and are handed an inflated bag of goods.

If you want to create quality panoramic images, steer clear of one-shot lens technology.

The entire process sounds very simple in that you only need to take one photo of each room.

One-shot systems do not allow you to utilize your camera’s flash, so a dark hallway will appear as a black hole and any windows with sunlight coming through will be extremely blown out.

All images gathered using a one-shot system are only viewable within the software or the tour window online and they are not printable.

With just a little bit of research on stitching technology, I found what appeared to be the leading virtual tour company, RTV.

My conversation with the sales rep was very educational, and within a day or two, I made the decision to go with RTV.

To date, RTV has taken great care of me, and my one-shot lens has most likely been sold and resold dozens of times by now!
