What type of camera is THETA?

THETA is a 360-degree camera that records the entire space in high resolution, something that normal cameras cannot do. Photos and videos can be shot easily with a single press of the shutter button, without worrying about the composition or angle of the shot.

The camera is designed to be slim and compact, and is also easy to carry around.

There are many ways to enjoy the camera by using a dedicated app and sharing photos and videos over SNS.
