Ricoh's flagship THETA Z1 51GB 360° Camera offers high-quality 360° imaging in a compact, easy-to-use form, and it now features a higher internal flash drive capacity of 51GB. 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 51GB 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 stitch them into one complete image. Automatic DR (dynamic range) compensation helps reduce blown-out highlights and increases details in shadowed areas. Its lens system offers selectable f/2.1, f/3.5, and f/5.6 apertures for increasing your depth of field and resolution. The optical system also features reduced ghosting, fringing, and flares for more accurate image reproduction.

Video capture has been improved, with 3-axis image stabilization for smoother shots and built-in microphones for capturing audio from four independent directions for realistic sound. Take advantage of raw photo editing using Ricoh's THETA Stitcher and your Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC platform. Live stream to social media platforms or the Theta 360 dedicated website, upload still photos to Google Maps, or use the Remote Playback plug-in and a separate wireless receiver to display your content on a larger screen. Additional functions like USB data transfer and more are available using optional Ricoh or third-party plug-ins.

The THETA Z1 provides 51GB of internal memory, captures up to 900 raw photos and 6350 JPEG photos, and records up to 5-minute clips in 4K and up to 25 minutes in 2K, with respective storage totals of 110 minutes and 360 minutes. The robust THETA Z1 is constructed from a magnesium alloy with a textured finish, and it incorporates a 0.93" OLED status display panel with a function control button.
