High-Powered 360° Shooting
Recording in rich Full HD, the THETA SC combines two 12M CMOS sensors with a newly-developed F/2.0 lens to deliver splendid 360° video.

With such top-notch optics, you’ll produce clips and pictures worthy of VR headsets like Google Cardboard. And with a shutter speed of 1/8000sec, you can create pin-sharp 360° still images too.

Using the RICOH THETA S app (IOS, Android), you can hook up your camcorder to your smart device through Wi-Fi. Once linked, you’ll transfer content in seconds, edit them on your device and post them on social media sites like Facebook or YouTube. Furthermore, this is compatible with the new Google Street View app, which lets you publish your photo spheres on Google Maps for people all over the world to look at.
8GB Internal Memory
The THETA SC can keep recording for up to 5 minutes for each individual movie. Packed with 8GB of internal memory, you’ll be able to snap up to 9,000 images and film up to 171 total minutes of video. With so much space to play with, the possibilities are endless.
Slim, slick and elegant, the THETA SC is a striking bit of kit. With its fine blend of simplicity and convenience, the buttons are placed to make navigation as simple as possible.
