Ricoh has unveiled its latest 360-degree camera, the Theta X. The camera, which will be available in March 2022, is the first to feature a 2.25" touchscreen display, an interchangeable battery, and a Micro SD card slot. The Theta X is equipped with all-new 48MP CMOS picture sensors, an enhanced core CPU, and a better lens design. The Theta X can capture 60MP photos when taking 360-degree still images. The Theta X can shoot video at up to 30 frames per second (fps) with 5.7K (5760 x 2880 pixels) resolution and 'enhanced image stabilization.' Other features include a built-in GPS for geolocation data and a USB-C connector on the camera's side for charging the device with a USB power bank without the need to swap batteries.
The incorporation of a 2.25" color touchscreen display, which is utilized to browse the camera's menu and compose your images, is the highlight of this change. While considerably smaller than your smartphone or tablet's display, this screen should allow you to access what you need on the move without having to bother about pairing the Theta X with your smartphone or tablet. Ricoh has also included an interchangeable battery and a Micro SD card slot, which are both firsts for a Theta camera system. Previous Theta models only had integrated batteries and storage, severely limiting the camera's functionality versatility.
The Ricoh Theta X will be available for $799 in March 2022. It will include a USB cable, a soft case, and one rechargeable battery.
