Theta S 

Ricoh has announced the Theta S at IFA 2015. 

The Theta S takes high resolution 360 degree images at nearly 14 megapixels in size. The camera takes fully spherical photos and videos captured in one shot. The Theta S features a live preview function and improved compatibility with social media platforms. It retails for £299.99 and will be on sale in the UK from late October. 

The Theta S, matches the lightweight portability of the current model, the Theta m15, and can also record spherical video in full HD (1920 x 1080*1 pixels at 30fps) with a maximum recording time of 25 minutes. These enhanced quality images are achieved by an enlarged image sensor and fast F2.0 lenses which allow more light through Ricoh’s proprietary ultra-small twin-lens folded-optical system. Superior image processing technology and bulb mode for long exposures produce spherical still images with less visual static, even in low-light situations.

Spherical images can be uploaded to theta360.com, shared via Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, and posted to Google Maps, Google+ and YouTube 360°Channel. The application program interface (API) for Theta S is based on the Google-supported Open Spherical Camera API for compatibility with Google’s services.

Coinciding with the launch of the Theta S, Google Maps today introduced a new Google Street View™ app that allows you to capture and publish your photo spheres instantly to Google Maps for people all over the world to explore. The app also offers the ability to shoot photo spheres and to connect to spherical cameras. This new capability to connect to spherical cameras makes it easier than ever to create Google Street View experiences.

The new Ricoh Theta S app for smartphones and tablets can be used to configure settings and instantly view spherical photos and video via wirelessly connected devices. An improved Wi-Fi module now transfers data four times faster than the current Ricoh Theta model.

The Theta S also boasts an updated design and user interface. Usability has been improved with an elegant but practical sure-grip black rubber coating and handy face-mounted LED mode indicator. Internal memory has been increased to 8GB.
