A Must have

I bought this to go with my Ulanzi BG-3 10,000mAh Power Handgrip with Mini Tripod because without it you don't have the space to plug the battery grip into the Theta cameras. This little gem gives you the clearance you need in the field to keep the camera plugged into external power.

It's an expensive metal screw.

I plug one end to my camera, I plug the other end to my tripod. In total, this thing cost me around $70 CAD. Eh

Does what you need!

I had kludged together an extension adapter using a 3 bolt through the base of a Manfrotto tripod QR plate, a few washers and two wing nuts. Works well, but is klunky, looks amateur, but most importantly it was visible in the imagery. Bought this adapter and am using it while I type this. Clean, elegant and functional. If you need to tether your Ricoh ThetaS while shooting, or any other small body camera, this accessory does the job and does it elegantly. Nicely machined and looks clean and smooth on top of a light stand. Only wish it came in black, but not worth taking a star away.

Absolute necessity

The THETA Z1 has a pretty short battery life and when it is mounted on a monopod (or tripod), the USB-C connector is (usually) covered. This allows the camera to stay mounted while plugging in a battery pack to recharge during the shoot.

Expensive but necessary

This extension should come with the camera, not be $19 extra. Without an extension, you can’t connect to aux power vis USB-C port on camera (when mounted to virtually any tripod or monopod etc.). You could go to a hardware store and bet a small bolt and cut the head off it and get the Same effect

Lifesaver for long shoots

I would call this a extreme necessity to add external power to keep the Theta rolling when you are running around and grabbing a LOT of 360 content. It allows you to access the micro-usb port to keep it going. NOW if they would allow for a memory card as opposed to internal memory, you can keep shooting after changing cards.

I would buy this product again
