Ricoh Unveils Upgraded THETA S Spherical Camera


Ricoh at IFA announced the release of the RICOH THETA S, the newest model in the RICOH THETA series of spherical cameras that capture 360-degree scenes surrounding the user.

The camera features extra-high resolution, fully spherical photos and videos in one simple shot, a live preview function and greater compatibility with social media platforms.

The RICOH THETA S, which retains the lightweight portability of the current model - the RICOH THETA m15 - captures high-resolution spherical images of up to nearly 14 megapixels. It can also record spherical video in full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels at 30fps) with a maximum recording time of 25 minutes. The better quality images are enabled by an enlarged image sensor and fast F2.0 lenses to allow more light through Ricoh?s proprietary ultra-small twin-lens folded-optical system.

Also, image processing technology and bulb mode for long exposures produce spherical still images with less visual static, even in low-light settings.

Spherical images can be uploaded to theta360.com, shared via Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, and posted to Google Maps, Google+ and YouTube? 60°Channel. The application program interface (API) for RICOH THETA S is based on Google-supported Open Spherical Camera API for compatibility with Google?s services.

Coinciding with the launch of the RICOH THETA S, Google Maps today introduced the new Google Street View app that allows you to capture and publish your photo spheres instantly to Google Maps. The app also offers the ability to shoot photo spheres and to connect to spherical cameras. This new capability to connect to spherical cameras makes it easier than ever to create Google Street View experiences.

The new RICOH THETA S app for smartphones and tablets can be used to configure settings and instantly view spherical photos and video via wirelessly connected devices. An improved Wi-Fi module transfers data four times faster than the current RICOH THETA model.

The RICOH THETA S will go on sale at a base price of USD 349 (or equivalent) from late October in Europe, North America, and Asia-Pacific regions.
