Ricoh Theta V overview

  • 1Description

Building on the success of previous THETA models, the Ricoh THETA V is designed to provide you with an immersive 360° video and audio experience in a small form factor. Record with the camera pointing in one direction, and in the end, see and hear from all directions.

The THETA V features two 12MP sensors and a twin-lens optical system that captures two wide-angle images and automatically stitches them into one complete spherical image. It allows you to capture comprehensive 360° 4K videos and 12MP photos, as well as live stream 360° footage in 4K. Additionally, a built-in 4-channel microphone captures high-quality audio from four directions and with seamless transitions between the channels. Moreover, an optional designated 3D microphone (TA-1) is supported that allows you to add 3D 360° spatial audio to your 360° video content.

The THETA V records to approximately 19GB of internal memory. Once you've recorded your video, simply pull up the included THETA iOS/Android app on your smartphone or tablet, and with the swipe of your finger rotate the 360° image in any direction to see it from different angles. See what you missed while you were there. The THETA app also lets you preview your shots before you shoot, live stream to platforms such as YouTube Live, and perform a variety of other functions.

The THETA V is designed to provide the combined 360° image with minimal stitching artifacts so that your images look more professional. The camera is very compact and can be kept in pretty much any pocket. An optional waterproof housing (TW-1) is also available that will let you take your THETA V up to 100 ft underwater, opening up another world of 360 possibilities.

Ricoh Theta V reviews

THETA V 360 4K Spherical VR Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Camera...but As usual great service from B&H. Prompt and on time. The camera does a really great job even in low light. Shot some Christmas displays the other night and there is minimal grain in the images and the video. The only real issue seems to be the WiFi connectivity between the device, phone or tablet, and the camera. Sometimes works perfectly. Did 15 interior 360 photos in about 7 minutes. Went outside and it took 15 minutes to do 5 photos because it would constantly disconnect. This seems to be an ongoing issue as i have read about it in several places. I have learned that once you are connected it does not like to switch back and forth between stills and video. I will keep working with it as the results are worth the learning curve frustrations at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recommend this over the Nikon 360 Nothing short of amazing!! Beats my Nikon 360 to pieces....Pics are sharp and colors are right on...use it with my real estate media business...knocks 360s out of the park...
Date published: 2017-10-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor software support Camera element seems competent, but none of the Theta apps (Desktop Win or iOS) are capable of processing the video. iOS app crashes immediately. Windows app hangs around 2%. So I have video, but unless I find a 3rd party app there's nothing I can do with it. Also, video stabilization is not good enough to correct walking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy workflow AI lost a job because I didn't offer 360 degree photography. I bought one of these, and after a week and a half of practice, I booked a retail store job that just about paid for the camera. The next step up is a Matterport costing $3,000 and a monthly subscription fee of $50. So, this little camera can make you money!
Date published: 2018-05-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good if you need the features I have both models before the V, and the V is a nice improvement, especially for video. Quick and simple to setup, I can get a full VR tour set of images in a short period of time and get out of the clients way. The HDR feature in Ricoh's own software now works well with this camera.
Date published: 2017-11-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use but resolution still short for 360 videos. Great camera for Starting with 360 videos, but 4K resolution stills in short for al Image that you will be making zooms, chromatic aberration is clearly its mayor flaw. But for common social content should work.
Date published: 2017-10-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid upgrade from the 'S' I am a long-time user of the Ricoh Theta S, and ever since I got the Oculus Go headset, I wanted to up my 360 video game. The upgraded video and audio capabilities are as advertised, and I appreciate them. The Ricoh software (I use an iPhone) is funky, but I have learned to work with it after a long time with the previous model, so it's not a problem. Very happy so far!
Date published: 2018-06-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Camera After many years of using multi-shot and expensive fisheye lens to manufacture look-around panos, this little camera does it all in one shot and very little time. And pretty good resolution. Maybe not as quite as good as a $4000 5D III and a $500 fisheye. I haven't learned to drop a working pano in FaceBook, but I'm trying. Did I mention FUN.
