360° experience.

Developed as a standard-class model of the series, the new RICOH THETA SC provides casual, effortless enjoyment of 360-degree imaging, and also signifies the arrival of a new era of virtual reality. While preserving the high level of image quality provided by the RICOH THETA S using a high-performance CMOS image sensor and large-aperture lens, this mid-class model is designed to be lighter in weight than previous models.

The RICOH THETA SC allows users to easily transfer captured 360-degree images to smartphones and tablet computers. It also lets them upload their images to the dedicated website and then share them on social networks, or upload 360-degree videos directly to Facebook and YouTube.

The RICOH THETA SC also offers a choice of four body colors (beige, white, blue and pink), making it your personalized imaging tool, one to enjoy every day, everywhere.
