New Ricoh Theta 360 Cameras Announced

Ricoh has announced their latest model of the Theta 360 cameras. These line of 360 degree cameras take a complete 360 image in one snap.

Ricoh Theta Spherical Cameras Announced

Beyond the unique and bright color options (something that should come as no surprise to anyone who follows Ricoh/Pentax), these new Theta cameras are actually quite unique in the market place. In a single shot, the camera captures the full 360 degree space around the user, creating a pretty unique experience.

This newly announced model brings with it WiFi connectivity to the Theta line, as well as the ability to capture 360 degree video. Overall, it seems like it may be a fun product to play with now and then, though with no manual controls, I don’t see many – if any – professional or semi-professional uses for this sort of device.

The price will also likely give many of you a bad taste in your mouth. But, if you are interested, you can find these new models now over on Amazon for just shy of $400.
