Ricoh has just officially announced the new Ricoh THETA X. It will be released in spring in Japan.
On January 25, 2022, Ricoh announced the spherical camera “THETA X” that supports shooting equivalent to 60 million pixels overseas. It will be released in the spring in Japan.
Still images can be output at a maximum of 11K (11008 x 5504 pixels), and moving images can be output at 5.7K (5760 x 2880 pixels, 30fps) or 4K (3840 x 1920 pixels, 60fps).
Until now, THETA required a smartphone to change the settings, but THETA X is equipped with a 2.25 inch color monitor with a touch screen. Detailed settings can be made only with the main unit.
The battery is replaceable, and an external memory card (MicroSD card) can also be used. “You can shoot more efficiently and reliably in a business environment,” he said.
According to Ricoh, “THETA X was announced in advance overseas. In Japan, it is scheduled to be announced and released this spring.”
