What is RICOH THETA? Part 1
This is part 1 which introduces the enjoyment of THETA.
THETA is a camera (or device) that can capture an entire scene in a single shot.
Images captured by two ultra-wide angle lenses (also called fish-eye lens) on the front and rear of the camera are pasted together (also called stitch processing) in real time to create a 360-degree image. You only need to push a button to operate the camera to capture video and still images. You can easily record the entire space with you in it.
A dedicated app can also be used to connect the camera to a smartphone over Wi-Fi so that you can capture an image of the scene while viewing it on the smartphone screen in real time. You can operate the camera from a distance so that you don’t appear in the shot and also easily take a cool selfie showing a natural composition shot.
And for the experts who want to express their passion for detail, it is possible to adjust the brightness and color of images while simulating still images on a smartphone screen using the live view function.
You can capture 360-degree images easily with THETA without having to think about anything difficult and can create an image with as much detail as desired. The camera only has four buttons but there is more to it than first meets the eye. Well, whether you want to capture images easily or with greater detail, either way is definitely fun.
We have come to the end. Next time will be about the enjoyment of looking at images shot with THETA.
