  • I'm not sure if a bigger sensor is the answer. A bigger sensor will mean a bigger, more bulbous lens , which is probably why the current camera is so pricey to begin with. A higher quality sensor, ...
  • I feel the size works great. I think if they come out with an upgrade, it will have better sensors with better noise control since that's where the theta lacks the most, maybe some sort of ...
  • Looks like it doesn't require a firmware upgrade, just the updated phone app. Tried it out earlier. now it has auto mode, shutter priority, and ISO priority. And each priority mode has a white ...
  • My android app updated itself this morning. What's New - You can now set the white balance, ISO sensitivity and shutter speed when shooting. Note that camera firmware needs to be updated. - You can ...
  • Today my Ricoh Theta App for android was updated. Apparently the IOS app was updated too. I thought it was interesting that they received different features on the different apps. It seems like the ...
  • Ricoh just released an update to the Ricoh Theta Firmware and the android app. I don't have an Iphone, so i don't know if the Iphone app was also updated. It doesn't seem like a huge change, but ...
  • I have two brand new, never been used sony type X batteries. These are genuine Sony batteries, not knock offs. I bought these for spares for my camera because i was having issues with the off ...
  • Replied in Zipshot
    Why would you cut off the legs? if you want a monopod, just wrap the three legs together. if you can find something soft (snow, sand, etc), it will stand on its own in "monopod" mode after you bury ...
  • A zipshot tripod works great with it. if you wrap the three legs together, its a very lightweight monopod too. http://www.trailgroove.com/issue9.html?autoflip=51
  • I also had a rx100 and a lensmate. I decided to switch over to the Ricoh's lens tube setup instead of trying that because i wanted to use the wide angle adapter, and i'm pretty sure the wide angle ...
  • Thank you, I appreciate it. they've been adding a lot of photos to the site today. i'll have to check them all out later.
  • Here is one of the photos i took yesterday and submitted. Not too shabby :-) "Tom Caldwell wrote: Please don't take my naysaying as negative, I am only feeding off Theta beneficiary's comments on ...
  • I wouldn't say the camera has a frustration factor at all. It links with my phone 99% of the time, and other than it freezing up yesterday (conditions were pretty extreme), it has performed ...
  • Found another issue with it today. It froze up due to low temps. I took it on a trip today where it was very cold and windy. it worked well for most of the day, and while i wasn't using it, it was ...
  • Also, with the focal length being so small, and following the 500 rule, theoretically it could take a 80 second photo without significant star trails. I don't think the internal hardware/software ...
  • I uploaded one i took from this evening. I still think they could upgrade the smartphone app to allow: -turning sounds on or off (it doesn't bother me, but it would be nice) -shutter priority (for ...
  • I am one of the other recipients for the CNN promotion. I wonder if Ricoh has figured out that if they could make a shutter priority mode for long exposures with the camera, and possibly a single ...
  • Created discussions Ricoh Theta 360
    Anyone use the Ricoh Theta 360 camera. I'm interested, but i wonder how much manual control you can have over it. Thanks -Ted (TrailGroove Magazine)
  • For me, a good quality circular polarizer not only helps with certain lighting, but it protects the lens from getting dirt and scratches. I travel, climb, hike, and backpack a lot, and my cameras ...
  • Its definitely broke, took a tumble and hit a few rocks on the way down. luckily the memory card stayed in the camera and wasn't affected and i have a squaretrade warranty. is there any way to ...
