New THETA 4K sample video - Spherical Image - RICOH THETA

Bringing innovation to the imaging experience. 
Record and recreate the real world in 360 degrees.

Resolution has been further improved and high quality image delivers a more natural three-dimensional experience and coloring.  360 degrees spatial audio lets you record sound from all directions.  Realistically record images and audio of the world surrounding you as far as the eye can see to recreate inspiring moments.

  • High-quality image

    High-quality 360 degree still images equivalent to 14M
    Record high-resolution, 360 degree still images equivalent to 14M output pixels. A completely new algorithm delivers low-noise, high-resolution, and high-quality images from low to high sensitivity.


  • 4K video shooting NEW

    4K/30 fps high-quality videos
    Video performance has been significantly improved, making 4K (3840x1920, 56Mbps), 30 fps high-resolution 360 degree shooting possible. Enjoy recording realistic spherical images.*1

    *1 The resolution of recording data is 4K (3840x1920). The resolution of the spherical video viewed varies depending on the display quipment of the magnification ratio

  • 360゜spatial audio NEW

    Record 360゜spatial audio with a 4-channel microphone
    New VR (virtual reality) compatible spatial audio technology is adopted to this model. Enjoy a completely new, realistic experience with linked video and audio.

  • High-speed readout image sensor  NEW

    Two 1/2.3-type image sensors provide high-speed image data readout. An image sensor is included which delivers high-quality spherical video.

  • Main processor NEW

    The Qualcomm(R) Snapdragon(TM) is used as a main processor. It delivers a variety of improvements including faster image processing and wireless transfer speed, and power saving capabilities.

  • High-performance 4-channel microphone NEW

    Four built-in microphones make it possible to record audio independently from four directions. This is then converted to a format that recreates natural 360゜spatial audio.

  • Exclusive external 3D Microphone TA-1 (Optional) NEW

    This is a four-direction, 360゜spatial audio microphone designed specially for the THETA V. Use it to record even higher quality audio with a more realistic feel.

New functions for further possiblities in spherical camera



World's first*2 Remote Playback*3

Image data recorded on THETA V can be played back in 360 degrees on a monitor such as TV. The THETA V
also functions as a remote control which can be used to select the image file and move displayed 360
degree image up, down, left, and right. It can also zoom-in and out
*2 As a consumer-oriented spherical camera (According to Ricoh research).
*3 Other devices are required, including the separate wireless display adapter.

  • High sensitivity of ISO 3200/6400 NEW

    Enjoy high-sensitivity shooting from ISO 3200 (still images) to ISO 6400 (videos, live streaming). This range of sensitivity is highly effective for shooting in dark scenes.

  • Underwater Housing TW-1  (Optional) NEW

    This is an authentic waterproof housing with JIS Class 8 equivalent protection class for shooting underwater to 30 m. The housing features AR anti-reflective coating and dirt-resistant coating.

  • 1/2500 seconds shutter speed

    The shutter speed can be set in a range from 1/2500 to 60 seconds.
