Ricoh Theta SC2
In addition to the status OLED display (Organic EL display) in the lower section of the body, that allows at-a-glance checking of a range of information such as setting modes and battery power remaining, the Ricoh Theta SC2 also features a button that lets you switch to self-timer mode, making the camera much easier to operate in a standalone manner. Staying true to the product concept of a compact, lightweight body, the Ricoh Theta SC2 can be used as a live blogging camera that you can carry with you to record the events of your day. This is the perfect camera for people who enjoy sharing pictures and videos on social media, or for those who wish to start using a 360° camera.
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 Theta SC models, and offer accurate, natural expression 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 - sold separately.)
A mode that detects human faces and automatically places them at the centre of the image. This mode is also using exposure compensation and noise reduction to apply skin smoothing.
A mode that utilizes dynamic range compensation and noise reduction through image compositing to deliver beautiful night-time shooting.
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.
