RICOH THETA Z1 51GB

  1. 23MP resolution using a 1.0-inch back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, one of the largest for consumer 360-degree cameras. And a multi-level aperture mechanism allows users to set the F-number to one of the three levels of F2.1, F3.5, and F5.6.
  2. A high-performance image processing algorithm achieves low- and high-sensitivity, low-noise, and high-resolution images. Dynamic Range (DR) compensation is automatically made for normal shooting, effectively reducing blown out and pitch-black shadows for outdoor locations with brightness contrasts.
  3. High-quality 4K 360-degree videos using the latest 3-axis rotational stabilization while shooting videos to show superior image stabilization.
  4. Intuitive main body user interface (UI) has a 0.93-inch organic EL (OLED) monitor that displays shooting information in the lower part of the main body.
  5. JPEG format, RAW (Adobe® DNG) and JPEG files can be saved in the camera. RICOH THETA Stitcher, an application that enables image stitching in Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® Classic, will be provided free.
  6. Users can directly post 360-degree spherical images shot using the camera to Facebook or upload them to the theta360.com dedicated website and share them on social networks such as Twitter and Tumblr. Unique cropped images can also be shared with Instagram. It is also possible to submit captured spherical videos to 360-degree channels and images to Google Maps.
  7. The camera employs a lightweight and robust magnesium alloy for body materials. It ensures robustness that can withstand severe use, but texture casting on the surface gives a luxurious texture suitable for a high-end model.
  8. The camera uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon™ and an Android-based operating system. Firmware updates facilitate continuous functional expansions and performance improvements. Users can access a variety of expanded functions by installing Ricoh genuine plug-ins as well as plug-ins released by general developers through the RICOH THETA Plug-in Partner Program.
  9. Additional features:
  • Large 51GB memory capacity that can capture approximately 6350 jpeg images.
  • Can shoot using a high shutter speed of up to 1/25000 seconds.
  • THETA+ application can be used to edit still images and export image data files for printing.
  • Dual communication using Bluetooth® and wireless LAN.
  • Easy wireless connection from the basic app for smartphones.
