Imagine having a 360-degree experience to capture, explore with a device that can fit snugly in your hand.
The Theta camera, from the Japanese firm Ricoh, is the world’s first handheld camera that takes fully spherical photos with just one press of a button.
The device fits comfortably in the palm of a hand, similar to a remote control. Its twin-lens system captures the scene around, above and below the device.
The shutter button is positioned below the lens making it easy to take the photo using a thumb. This element of the design was developed in order to reduce any shakiness that would be caused by having to move fingers around the device to take the shot.
The new RICOH THETA’s app for smartphones and tablets can be used to configure settings and instantly view these spherical photos and videos via wirelessly connected devices.
The model’s enhanced image quality and other exciting new features like extra-high resolution make the device quite unique. Superior image processing technology and bulb mode for long exposures produce spherical still images with less visual static, even in low-light settings.
There isn’t a viewing display on the device itself, instead but every image taken is automatically synced with paired smartphones and tablets wirelessly and can be rotated and zoomed into on the mobile screen.
The RICOH THETA’s also boasts a fully updated design and user interface. Usability has been improved with an elegant but practical sure-grip black rubber coating and handy face-mounted LED mode indicator. The Internal memory has been increased to 8GB.
The original RICOH THETA was launched in 2013 as the world’s first mass-produced camera to capture fully spherical images but this new model offers even higher image quality than before to satisfy both early adopters and people who enjoy communicating creatively through social media.
The model’s enhanced image quality and other exciting new features together make this an interesting, innovative product in the space of cameras.
