The Ricoh Theta was a revolutionary device enabling users to instantly shoot a full 360-degree photo thanks to its two wide-angle cameras on the front and back of the stick.

Ricoh has followed up this excellent innovation with the new Theta S, which is capable of filming up to 25 minutes of panoramic video. This is a technically challenging and very important step forward for the product as it further increases the ‘never miss a moment’ attraction.

The Ricoh Theta S app, which can be downloaded from the Google Play store, acts as a portal for you to view the images you’re recording in real time. This is so you won’t have to suffer the disappointment of uploading your footage only to find you had completely missed all the interesting action.

Ricoh has bumped the internal storage up to 8GB. This is enough to hold around 1,600 large images, 9,000 medium-sized images, 65 minutes of 30fps video or 175 minutes of 15fps video. The Theta S is capable of recording up to 25 minutes of video at a time, so that could substantially eat into the limited storage space available.
