We are allowed to touch at it , hold on it and even take photo with it , snap trigger from smartphone apps just one click or one click trigger at theta body . allows users to develop their own APPs and developing apps for RICOH THETA on iOS and Android platforms .
This camera is something totally new : it makes completely takes photos via two back-to-back fisheye lenses which are separated . There are no errors in the image .
I am extremely impressed and sometimes shocked with how well this camera creates 360 photos . You can literally capture a whole place, everything around you, at one instant. This allows photographers to easily take photos that have never been possible before. Until now, to make a fully spherical image, it has been necessary to combine multiple shots and then join them together afterwards . The device just seemed impossibly small and thin . The folks at Ricoh have done some amazing tricks to pack these two lenses so close to each other . there has never been a camera like this before . this camera can produce 360° photos that don’t have any “stitching errors” .
Additionally, it is important to find some kind of lightweight monopod . It works perfectly, although the base of the monopod that attaches to the camera is a little bit too big , Once you have paired you Phone with the Theta , after that can put the Theta somewhere else and use your phone to take the picture. After you take the picture, the Theta sends the 360 panorama to your phone and can see it on the spot! This is really quite magical.
This is not just an ordinary camera. It is a magic camera that captures the space around you . with just one touch , Create a sense of presence Look around the photos in any direction on the web or on a smartphone. Things that you didn't notice at that moment are waiting for you to find them.
The RICOH THETA is designed for portability with a small, lightweight body that weighs a mere 95g (3.3 ounces).
You can now shoot 360° videos (with sound) up to 3 minutes long.
