Ricoh Theta S
The Ricoh Theta S, a fully 360-degree spherical camera, captures the entirety of a scene surrounding the user in a high-resolution photo or video. It’s more than just a camera, it’s an experience. The pocket-sized Theta S produces photos and videos that allow viewers to interact with an image or video by scrolling in all directions. The Ricoh Theta S captures spherical still images of approximately 14 megapixels and records full HD spherical video. Its fast f/2.0 lens allows more light to pass through Ricoh’s proprietary, ultra-small twin-lens folded-optical system, which results in bright, high quality stills and videos. The spherical images can be uploaded to theta360.com, shared via Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, and posted to Google Maps, Google+ and YouTube. The Ricoh Theta S app for smartphones and tablets makes it easy to remotely control the camera, configure settings and instantly view spherical photos and video.
