THETA PHOTO THETA PHOTO For people who really want to enjoy their trip! Shoot videos and photos completely in 360 degrees in a single shot

Use RICOH THETA to record memories of events!

Group photos are often shot during events such as class reunions, wedding ceremonies, and while on trips.

However, it is not an easy thing to shoot group photos with many people.
The person shooting the photo does not appear in the shot, someone is cut out of the shot accidentally, or you can’t see the scenery.

RICOH THETA can record high quality images completely in 360 degrees so this thoroughly eliminates such problems. You can also enjoy shooting interesting photos unique to 360-degree images.
