Ricoh has released updated versions of its Ricoh Theta app that adds new ‘Handheld HDR’ functionality for its Theta V and Theta Z1 360-degree cameras.

The Ricoh Theta app update (version 1.26.0 on Android and version 2.8.0 on iOS) adds Ricoh’s new ‘Handheld HDR’ capture setting for still images and addresses a number of unspecified bug fixes. For the new HDR setting to work, the Theta V and Theta Z1 cameras need to be updated to the latest firmware, version 3.10.1 and version 1.20.1, respectively.
