Ricoh Theta V – 360° camera
Get involved in the brave new world of spherical video production with the Theta V 360° 4K Camera from Ricoh. Create immersive virtual reality content (4K, 3840×1920, Max 56 Mbps, 30fps), either recorded or live streamed, with its updated image sensors and the Snapdragon processing engine.
High-resolution 360-degree spherical still images and video
Both the image quality of still images and video have been significantly improved and power consumption has been reduced by adopting a new image sensor that supports high-speed shot image data readout and the Qualcomm® Connected Camera Platform with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor.
4K compatible high resolution 360-degree video
The camera can shoot high-definition smooth 360-degree video at 30 frames per second at a resolution of 3840 x 1920 pixels, which is equivalent to 4K. Users can enjoy greater realism by creating immersive VR video content and watching video on a large screen.
360-degree spatial audio recording that reproduces overwhelming realism
The camera has a 4-channel microphone that supports 360-degree spatial audio recording built into its body. Recording omnidirectional audio including, not just in the horizontal direction but also in the vertical direction, makes it possible to reproduce sound and video as it was in the environment where the video was shot by linking 360-degree video and audio together.

Bringing innovation to the imaging experience.
Record and recreate the real world in 360 degrees.
Resolution has been further improved and high quality image delivers a more natural three-dimensional experience and coloring. 360 degrees spatial audio lets you record sound from all directions. Realistically record images and audio of the world surrounding you as far as the eye can see to recreate inspiring moments.
High-quality 360 degree still images equivalent to 14M
Record high-resolution, 360 degree still images equivalent to 14M output pixels. A completely new algorithm delivers low-noise, high-resolution, and high-quality images from low to high sensitivity.
4K video shooting NEW
4K/30 fps high-quality videos
Video performance has been significantly improved, making 4K (3840×1920, 56Mbps), 30 fps high-resolution 360 degree shooting possible. Enjoy recording realistic spherical images.*1
*1 The resolution of recording data is 4K (3840×1920). The resolution of the spherical video viewed varies depending on the display quipment of the magnification ratio
360゜spatial audio NEW
Record 360゜spatial audio with a 4-channel microphone
New VR (virtual reality) compatible spatial audio technology is adopted to this model. Enjoy a completely new, realistic experience with linked video and audio.
High-speed readout image sensor NEW
Two 1/2.3-type image sensors provide high-speed image data readout. An image sensor is included which delivers high-quality spherical video.
Main processor NEW
The Qualcomm(R) Snapdragon(TM) is used as a main processor. It delivers a variety of improvements including faster image processing and wireless transfer speed, and power saving capabilities.
High-performance 4-channel microphone NEW
Four built-in microphones make it possible to record audio independently from four directions. This is then converted to a format that recreates natural 360゜spatial audio.
Exclusive external 3D Microphone TA-1 (Optional) NEW
This is a four-direction, 360゜spatial audio microphone designed specially for the THETA V. Use it to record even higher quality audio with a more realistic feel.
New functions for further possiblities in spherical camera
World’s first*2 Remote Playback*3
Image data recorded on THETA V can be played back in 360 degrees on a monitor such as TV. The THETA V
also functions as a remote control which can be used to select the image file and move displayed 360
degree image up, down, left, and right. It can also zoom-in and out
*2 As a consumer-oriented spherical camera (According to Ricoh research).
*3 Other devices are required, including the separate wireless display adapter.
High sensitivity of ISO 3200/6400 NEW
Enjoy high-sensitivity shooting from ISO 3200 (still images) to ISO 6400 (videos, live streaming). This range of sensitivity is highly effective for shooting in dark scenes.
Underwater Housing TW-1 (Optional) NEW
This is an authentic waterproof housing with JIS Class 8 equivalent protection class for shooting underwater to 30 m. The housing features AR anti-reflective coating and dirt-resistant coating.
