[Video] RICOH THETA Brings Spherical Photographs To The Masses

RICOH has created a new camera that takes full spherical photos in just one shot, something that is new to the digital photography world. No more messing around with panoramic shots on your phone, the camera, named THETA, easily takes them with just the push of the shutter button. “The THETA’s ultra-slim twin-lens optical system snaps the view from around, above and below the device to create seamless panoramas.” As soon as you take the photo, it is automatically sent to your smartphone or tablet for you to do what you please with it. You can expect to pre-order this starting in October, but until then check out the video and see what this camera is capable of.
