UNBOXED: Reviewing the Ricoh Theta V
Just about a year ago, we took a look at a new product from Ricoh called the Theta SC—a 360-degree camera that was simple to use, not super expensive, and an all around great device. That’s why we gave it one of our first perfect ratings.
Recently, Ricoh reached back out and asked us to take a look at an upgraded version of the SC called the Theta V. It’s essentially the same product from a look and feel perspective. But there are a number of internal and in-app upgrades that take the Theta V to the next level.
For starters, Ricoh added 4K shooting and streaming capability to the Theta V. That means those videos and live streaming 360-degree experiences the user creates will come through in a crisp format that’s pleasing on the eyes. And with the internal stitching software, there’s no need to download extra high-powered software and edit the videos together. Ricoh does all of that for you and gives the consumer near-instant access to their photos and videos through the Theta app.
