A slim and stylish device for creating 360° spherical imagery, the blue Theta SC from Ricoh records both still images and Full HD 1080p30 video. The unique, dual-lens design makes use of two 12MP 1/2.3" sensors, which output 14.4MP stills and support a total sensitivity range from ISO 100-1600 for working in a broad variety of lighting conditions. Automated exposure control is available for both stills and video recording; however, manual exposure control can be used in photo mode for selecting shutter speeds up to 1/8000 sec. or down to 1 min. Additionally, HDR Composite and Dynamic Range Compensation modes enable a broader dynamic range to better retain highlight and shadow detail, a self-timer mode can be used for creative selfies, and interval shooting is possible for making time-lapse sequences.
In addition to the imaging capabilities, the Theta SC also sports enhanced sharing capabilities, including the ability to wirelessly share both movies and photos to a mobile device for posting online. Built-in Wi-Fi also enables remote live view and camera settings adjustment from your smartphone or tablet. The Theta SC also has an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery as well as 8GB of storage for saving imagery.
