question

Can the Ricoh USB cable, supplied with the Ricoh Theta S, be extended with a standard USB extension cable to reach the Ricoh CA-3 remote shutter switch? I would like to hold the Theta S high overhead for some photos.
Asked by: William j.
The supplied USB has a trickle charge according to Ricoh customer support. I had problems using other USB cables and adding an extension might be problematic for you. Best advice to contact Ricoh customer support and my experience was good with them. Using a selfie stick might help, too. Good luck!
