Ricoh's flagship THETA Z1 360° Camera offers high quality 360° imaging in a compact, easy-to-use form. Using dual 1"-type back-illuminated CMOS sensors and a revamped processing algorithm, the THETA Z1 provides highly realistic spherical images with improved noise reduction and low-light performance. The THETA Z1 can record or live stream up to 4K video or capture 23MP raw and/or JPEG photos.

The THETA Z1's dual 23MP sensors and twin lenses capture two wide-angle images and automatically stitches them into one complete image. Automatic DR (dynamic range) compensation helps to reduce blown-out highlights and increases details in shadowed areas. Its lens system offers selectable f2.1, 3.5, and 5.6 apertures for increasing your depth-of-field and increasing resolution. The optical system also features reduced ghosting, fringing and flares for more accurate image reproduction.

I've been using the Dual Fisheye plugin and it can be set to take 3, 5, 6 or 9 images. It automatically merges the images into one single Dng-HDR file, along with a mid exposure single file. All this inside the camera. You'll need to do some postproduction specific steps afterwards
