Ricoh Launches THETA S: Latest Spherical Portable Camera
Ricoh held a simultaneous press event in New York City Thursday with the IFA show in Berlin to unwrap its latest model spherical portable camera: the THETA S.
This is the third generation of the camera, said Jim Malcolm, president of Ricoh Imaging Americas Corp. It features extra high resolution and will take spherical images of up to almost 14 megapixels.
The camera has two lenses, each with a 190-degree field of view; sensors are located on the camera’s sides to keep the camera thin, and so the cameras can “see behind themselves,” explained Malcolm.
