23MP still image shooting

Natural 360° images can be recorded with approximately 23MP resolution (6720 x 3360, 7K) still image shooting.  Ghosting, flare, and fringe are suppressed by adopting a 1.0-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor and a newly developed lens unit. Enhanced HDR image processing captures varying brightness levels. Automatic DR compensation reduces blown-out highlights. Achieves the highest ISO6400 and demonstrates superior noise reduction performance, even when shooting in situations which require high sensitivity.

Large 51GB memory capacity

With the large 51GB memory capacity, it is possible to shoot approximately 6350 JPEG images (900 RAW+ images) or capture a total video recording time of approximately 110 minutes (4K). You can view the remaining number of images possible at-a- glance on the organic EL (OLED) monitor

Records high definition 360° video at 30 fps in 4K (3840×1920)

3 axis rotational stabilization has been installed providing high performance in image stabilization during video shooting. Newly added exposure setting, Av, Tv, ISO and M (manual), to give much detailed setting during video shooting.

Equipped with an organic EL panel on a compact body

Shooting information such as battery level, shooting mode, remaining number of images which can be shoot, the F value and ISO value can be confirmed at a glance. A lightweight, highly robust magnesium alloy is used as external material, which ensures a high rigidity to withstand professional use. It also has a textured surface that gives it an appearance that feels high-grade

With RICOH THETA Z1, both RAW(DNG)+JPEG and JPEG formats can be saved,

to allow the users to enjoy more camera-like colors and image quality editing. RICOH THETA Stitcher, a plug-in for stitching in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC, will be provided free. After developing files recorded in RAW format, you can create a smooth spherical images with the plug-in which uses the same stitching algorithm of RICOH THETA.

In addition to basic functions, RICOH THETA Z1 uses an Android-based operating system that can be evolved by adding a variety of functions.

Users can expand variety of functions by installing various plug-ins. Besides RICOH genuine plug-ins, plug-ins developed by partners can be installed. Plug-in API is open to freely develop new plug-ins.
