- Practical is the ability to remotely control the Theta-S with the smartphone and photos or videos stored with the app directly via social media channels.
- The 360 degree photo quality and numerous setting options of the handy cam are first class.
- For professional use, however, the quality is not enough.
- On the other hand, the video quality is only conditionally recommendable and significantly worse than the picture quality of the photos.
- Before you buy, however, you should check whether the app runs smoothly on your smartphone.
- The Theta S is equipped with two lenses that face each other and each cover a field angle of 180 degrees.
- Composed there are spherical panoramas that represent a 360-degree prudence.

- Video recordings are possible in Full HD resolution at 30 frames per second.
- The maximum recording time for a single clip is 25 minutes.
- The operation is simple and minimalist: At the camera housing is a button that can be used to switch between video and photo mode, also can be enabled Wi-Fi.
- Otherwise, the camera just has a large shutter that shoots photos and starts video recording.
- Ricoh provided App (iOS and Android) can then make settings such as white balance, exposure compensation and dynamic range.
- In addition, you can switch between different recording modes.
- Ricoh also provides an extra app for advanced editing, as well as software for viewing and correcting images and videos for PC and Mac.
- The recordings can also be shared via the common social networks.
- The internal memory of the camera is not particularly large with 8 GB dimensioned, especially since it can not be extended.

- This gives the viewer the opportunity to interactively view the scene.
- The quality of the 360-degree videos, however, is significantly worse than that of the pictures.
- No wonder, after all, the resolution amounts to a total of “only” Full-HD, which in the normal case blo? must cover a much smaller angle.
- Conclusion Ricoh’s 360-degree camera offers a unique opportunity to capture situations and make them tangible to others.
- Unfortunately, this feeling is still trampled by the limited video resolution.
- In the case of photos, however, this looks quite different: if the former still lacked the necessary resolution to produce convincing pictures with sufficient detail, the Theta S does not deliver top quality, but at least impressive results.
