Ricoh Theta

 

Hands-on: The world's first 360 degree camera, but is it worth the bother?

If you really only want to shoot 360 images, the Theta does a fantastic job of capturing the entire scene. At more than £300 we are not sure the Theta offers great value for money.

Ricoh Theta review

 

The Ricoh Theta camera is the first mass produced snapper that takes spherical pics

Build quality and design ; Interactive 360 pictures ; Very easy to setup and use

Not great in low light ; Quality degrades on sharing ; Less interaction when shared

Ricoh Theta S review: Creating spherical images doesn't get easier than this

 

It might not be the absolute future of photography, but this point-and-shoot 360 camera is damn cool.

The Ricoh Theta S takes the complex process of capturing and creating spherical photos and videos down to a single button press. Using its Wi-Fi and mobile apps, you can control the camera, and edit and share photos and video. Addition of self-timer...

Processing takes its toll on photo and video quality, so just don't look too closely. Having separate apps for capture and editing hurts the user experience. You need to upload to Ricoh's site before sharing to other sites. Because of the twin-lens...

Whether you're looking to create content for your VR headset or just love cool camera gadgetry, the Ricoh Theta S is an excellent way to start creating spherical images.

Ricoh Theta review

 

More than a novelty, the Theta creates instant panoramas that capture the moment in a unique way

We're very excited about the Theta and if you have a job or pastime that might benefit from its unique capabilities then it works well enough to make it worth buying. For everyone else it's still a great toy and hopefully a concept we'll be seeing a...

Ricoh Theta SC is a 360-degree camera aimed at everyone

 

By slashing two features off its top-of-the-line Theta S spherical camera, the imaging company is hoping to capture some less tech-savvy buyers.

Ricoh Theta S

 

The slim and wearable design of the RICOH THETA S matches its unique image capture system. The THETA S has a 14MP 1:2.3-inch sensor/processor that delivers stills or videos with a 360-degree spherical look. It can record Full HD videos for up to 25...

New Ricoh Theta!

 

This incredible device allows users to capture the area all around them - not forgetting above and below - all in a single spherical image. But that's not all; this new spherical camera can also capture spherical videos!

From the 14 November 2014, an API and SDK (beta version) will be released on theta360.com site to allow users to develop their own apps and add new exciting capabilities to their Ricoh Theta.

Ricoh Theta Review

 

The Ricoh Theta allows you to take 360° spherical images, either by itself or there are apps available so you can use it with Android and iOS devices. It is available to purchase for £329.99.

Unique way to take pictures, Easy to use, Images are well stitched together, Has 4Gb of internal memory

Too expensive, Image quality isn't fantastic

Ricoh Theta 360˚ camera: Point and click immersive imaging

 

Review The Ricoh Theta is yet another excursion of photographic fun intended to deliver an immersive environment, on-line, on the move or on the desktop. It's been tried before – remember iPIX anyone? That idea – which in the mid-1990s became a hit...

Ricoh Theta review

 

Ricoh's Theta is a new type of camera, one that takes sphericalphotographs. That's 360 degrees of imaging all around you -- floorto ceiling, wall-to-wall, front to back.

Simple to use, great design, spherical photo effect works well,decent mobile apps, good image quality

Expensive, image quality could be improved, no Bluetoothsupport

We had a lot of fun with the Theta. It's easy to use, produces aunique type of image and is quick to operate. It's expensivethough, but for frequent travellers to destinations far and wideit's almost certainly going to allow you to capture your travels...
