The Theta V 360° spherical camera is easy to use and compact enough to carry everywhere. A new image sensor and processor produces more realistic “as-if-you-were-there” 360° content. High-speed data transfer allows you to quickly and wirelessly upload 14 megapixel stills and high-resolution 4K videos for immediate showing and sharing. Omni-directional audio recording functionality enables 360° spatial audio. The camera can connect to a mobile device using either Bluetooth or wireless LAN to allow for flexible operation based on user preferences. In addition, the Theta V has a highly expandable operating system so that it can receive future performance enhancements through firmware updates.
The Theta V can shoot high-def smooth 360° video at 30 fps at a resolution of 3840 x 1920 pixels, which is equivalent to 4K. Users can enjoy greater realism by creating immersive VR video content and watching video on a large screen.
High-res 360° spherical images and video, with improvements to the image quality by the addition of the Qualcomm ® Snapdragon™ as the main processor, has completely enhanced the exposure accuracy and white balance algorithm.
The Theta V has a 4-channel microphone that supports 360° spatial audio recording built in. Omni-directional audio is recorded not just in the horizontal direction but also in the vertical direction.
The camera’s new high-speed data transfer is 2.5 times faster than previous Theta models, allowing users to quickly and wirelessly upload 14 megapixel stills and high-resolution 4K videos for immediate showing and sharing.
The world’s-first Remote Playback capable fully spherical camera allows users to wirelessly playback 360° images and videos on a large-screen display, using a compatible wireless display adapter.
The camera can always be connected to a smartphone using Bluetooth low energy (BLE). This function provides improvements in usability and power consumption .
A new and unique feature of the Theta V is that Ricoh will be able to create new functions for the camera via software plug-ins. The first of these plug-ins was developed by Ricoh and is already integrated into the phone. It enables the Theta V to deliver the world’s first remote playback capability in a commercially-marketed, fully spherical camera.
Dedicated Theta Apps allow for easy shooting, viewing, editing and sharing of your spherical images and videos.
The TA-1 3D Microphone is a dedicated external microphone for THETA V, which adopts four directional microphones corresponding to 360°spatial audio. Compared with THETA V’s built-it microphone, the TA-1 can record higher audio quality and 360°directivity, which gives the spherical video an immersive sound.
This dedicated 3D microphone for the THETA V was developed under a technical cooperation with Audio-technical Corporation who is well known for their high technology and reliability. By adopting this design, high quality 360° 3D spatial audio with a wide frequency range is achieved.
By adopting four directional microphones with excellent frequency, high audio quality with seamless transition recording is possible. With high quality 360° 3D spatial audio, fully immersive content can be captured.
Wind screen is included to reduce wind sound.
TW-1 Underwater Housing Case
The TW-1 Underwater housing case can be used with THETA V, THETA SC or the THETA S to record 360-degree underwater images and video. It can be used underwater to a depth of 30m (equivalent to JIS Class 8).
The TW-1 underwater housing is waterproof up to a depth of 30 meters (equivalent to JIS Class waterproof standard).
It can be used with the THETA V, THETA SC or the THETA S to record 360-degree underwater images and video.
The hard coating and AR coating on the surface of the case is scratch resistant and reduces reflections. It comes equipped with a tripod socket to allow installation on various camera accessories.
Carrying case, strap, scratch protection sheet and anti-condensation sheet are included
