Capable of capturing high-quality, high resolution 360° spherical still images and video footage

A bright wide-aperture F2.0 large-diameter compact twin lens folded optics system and the latest image sensor delivers detailed 360° spherical images at an output resolution approximately 14 megapixels. Exposure accuracy and the white balance algorithms have been completely revamped from previous RICOH TEHTA SC models, and offer accurate, natural exppresion when shooting in Auto mode. Furthermore, an improved image sensor and image processing engine now allows shooting high-resolution 4K ( 3840 x 1920 pixels) video at 30 fps (frames pre second) for up to three minutes, equivalent to high-end cameras.

Shooting modes matched to scenarios

Equipped with a range of preset modes that deliver the perfect footage for specific subjects and shooting scenarios. An all new underwater mode, that allows the user to adjust to the ideal white balance when shooting underwater*, has also been added.

* A dedicated underwater housing is required when shooting underwater.

Face

A mode that detects human faces and automatically places them at the center of the image. This mode is also using exposure compesation and noise reduction to apply skin smooting. 

Night View 

A mode that utilizes dynamic range compesation and noise reduction through image compositing to deliver beautiful night-time shooting.

Lens-by-Lens Exposure

A mode that controls two lenses individually to provide clear, bright footage of subjects in scenarios where there are significant variations in brightness levels, such as inside and outside vehicles, or on stage.

 

Easy-to-understand user interface on the camera body

The lower area of the camera body is equipped with a OLED status display that displays icons indicating the setting mode, smartphone connection state, remaining battery power, and other useful information. A self-timer button makes operation more convenient when shooting with the camera in a standalone configuration.

Dual communication and high-speed data transfer using Bluetooth and wireless LAN

The RICOH THETA SC2 can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Improvements to ease of use have also been made. Smartphones can now been using for shooting with just a Bluetooth connection, and when the camera has entered the sleep state, it can be powered on from the basic app. With a wireless LAN connection, all functions can be used, including live view display and image transfer on a smartphone, which can be used separately as appropriate  to the shooting circumstances.

The process has been changed such that the ''top/bottom'' correction is performed when videos are played back instead of when data is transferred, making the video transfer rate approximately 4x faster the the previous Ricoh Theta SC model.

**Actual measured value compared with RICOH THETA SC when transferring identical amounts of data to iOS devices. According to Ricoh research.

 

The new ''Animation Photo'' function offers improved ways to enjoy sharing content

Still images taken with a smartphone camera and 360° spherical images taken with RICOH THETA can be composited in a dedicated app to generate an ''Animation Photo'' in which a spherical image is diplayed as an animation when the image is tapped. Since these images can be played back and shares as Live Photos (iOS) or videos (AndroidTM), even people who do not have a 360°viewer app can play and share these files easily.
