Concept

360° for quality

The flagship model, achieving the highest image quality of the THETA series

 

Features

Striving for ease-of-use with amazing high performance

Records natural 360° images using 7K (6720 x 3360, approx. 23MP) still image shooting and highly accurate image stitching.                                                                                                                            

Demonstrates superior noise reduction performance even when shooting at night or indoors with low light due to the equipped 1.0-inch type back illuminated CMOS image sensor.

Using a newly developed lens unit reduces ghosting, flare and fringing. Aperture mechanism improves perceived resolution and reduces blown out highlights.

Supports various shooting scenarios using a variety of shooting modes.                                                                                               

Produces incredibly realistic spherical video by 4K (3840 x 1920, 29.97fps) quality.                                     

It is possible to save in RAW (DNG) format for the first time in THETA series. (Can also save in JPEG at the same time.)

Supports 360° live streaming in 4K. Transmits excellent quality real-looking image to the world.

Equipped with a 4-channel microphone. 4 microphones are built into the camera to independently record sound from 4 different directions when shooting video.

Uses Qualcomm’s “Snapdragon™”. Transfer speed for both still images and videos has been dramatically improved.
