A slim and stylish device for creating 360° spherical imagery, the blue Theta SC from Ricoh records both still images and Full HD 1080p30 video. The unique, dual-lens design makes use of two 12MP 1/2.3" sensors, which output 14.4MP stills and support a total sensitivity range from ISO 100-1600 for working in a broad variety of lighting conditions. Automated exposure control is available for both stills and video recording; however, manual exposure control can be used in photo mode for selecting shutter speeds up to 1/8000 sec. or down to 1 min. Additionally, HDR Composite and Dynamic Range Compensation modes enable a broader dynamic range to better retain highlight and shadow detail, a self-timer mode can be used for creative selfies, and interval shooting is possible for making time-lapse sequences.

In addition to the imaging capabilities, the Theta SC also sports enhanced sharing capabilities, including the ability to wirelessly share both movies and photos to a mobile device for posting online. Built-in Wi-Fi also enables remote live view and camera settings adjustment from your smartphone or tablet. The Theta SC also has an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery as well as 8GB of storage for saving imagery.

Unique, twin-lens design incorporates lenses on the front and back of the camera to enable full 360° spherical imagery to be recorded with each exposure. Each lens has a fixed aperture of f/2 to benefit working in low-light conditions, and each lens has a fixed focus range of 3.9" to infinity to render nearly all subjects in focus.
Dual 12MP 1/2.3" image sensors provide an interpolated 14.4MP output in order to produce stills with a 5376 x 2688 equirectangular resolution.
Full HD movie recording is supported at 1080p30 (16 Mbps) as well as HD 720p15 (6 Mbps), and clips up to 5 minutes long can be recorded at a time.
Auto, Manual, Shutter Priority, and ISO Priority exposure modes are available for stills shooting, and auto exposure mode is available for video recording.
A sensitivity range of ISO 100-1600 is available for all recording modes to benefit working in a variety of lighting conditions.
When shooting stills, shutter speeds ranging from 1/8000 sec. to 1 minute are possible in manual mode. Speeds up to 1/8000 sec. and down to 1/15 sec. are possible in video mode.
Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to connect to a mobile device or tablet in order to gain a live view image, adjust camera settings, and wirelessly transfer stills and video for instant sharing online. A dedicated Theta+ app is available for editing spherical stills, and a dedicated Theta+V app is available for editing spherical videos.
Spherical imagery can be uploaded to the Theta 360 website and shared to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr or posted to Google Maps, Google+, and YouTube. The Theta SC employs the Google-supported Open Spherical Camera API for full compatibility with Google services, including the ability to publish your photo spheres on the Google Street View app for others to explore.
A 1/4"-20 tripod mount is incorporated into the bottom of the camera body for increased stability.
Integrated lithium-ion battery offers approximately 260 shots per charge, and it can be charged via the included USB cable.
Internal 8GB memory can store approximately 1600 full-resolution stills or approximately 63 minutes of 1080p video.

    Theta SC Spherical Digital Camera (Blue) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a pretty cool camera. This is a pretty cool camera. Fun toy. Great for location scouting. Put the photo in some google goggles and you can look all around. Fun. OK. Here is the thing, and I guess this is pretty common, the app is not so great. So I had to purchase a 3rd party app to download and control the camera....and then the Theta app will work. It is an odd work around, and it sucks that you have to do it....but I guess Ricoh doesn't care much about their consumers after they purchase the camera...oh well...it is still cool

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funky and functional I rejected 360 images for a long time. They seemed too cheesy, too gimmicky, and rather annoying to look at. Especially the tiny planet versions. But in preparation of photographing a large convention with TONS of people in an eclectic mix of indoor and outdoor spaces, I wanted to provide my client with a different look. Hence, I bought this 360 camera. In my initial tests, I think it is pretty fun and does a great job. I look forward to seeing the impact the images will make once delivered.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Photosphere Camera Really works with Google Street View App. Good for photos but poor for video.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Toy! More of a toy than a professional tool, but so much fun once you figure out how to use the app. Great for travel, but images aren't sharp enough for professional use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 360 doesn't live up to its hype I guess the camera is okay for the money, but it really isn't for me. I don't like the heavy distortion when viewing the photos, and they just aren't very sharp. I also had some issues with the Android software. I tried it for a couple of days, then sent it back. Thanks B&H for your wonderful return policy.
