Designed in pursuit of enhanced usability and outstanding quality, this advanced model joins RICOH THETA’s series of 360-degree cameras that shoot immersive still images and videos in a single shot and is equipped with many firsts for THETA series: a large touch screen display, interchangeable battery, and external memory card.

Keeping in line with the original product concept for RICOH THETA cameras, the RICOH THETA X has a compact, lightweight body that can be easily carried around anywhere and offers high-resolution image quality equivalent to a maximum of approximately 60 megapixels (output pixel). The 2.25-inch full-colour touch screen display makes standalone camera use much easier by reducing the need to connect to a remote control or smartphone app. The THETA X also supports use of an interchangeable battery and an external memory card for more efficient and reliable shooting.
