Ricoh Theta V review: The DSLR of 360-degree cameras

Ricoh Theta V review: The DSLR of 360-degree cameras

There is no shortage of portable 360-degree cameras. The most well-known in our circles is Samsung's Gear 360, but that only works with Samsung phones and iOS. Insta360's 'ONE' and 'Nano' cameras are also popular, though the latter only works with select iPhone models.

If price is no object, one of the leading devices in this category has been Ricoh's Theta V camera. It's tiny, but it packs a 4K sensor and the ability to record surround-sound audio (with a separate module). The camera's functionality can be extended by a variety of plug-ins, like one for streaming to YouTube or uploading media to Google Photos.

Check out what one guy did with a 360-degree camera and some steel wool

Check out what one guy did with a 360-degree camera and some steel wool

Up until today, I knew steel wool only as something used for polishing/cleaning, but it's apparently pretty good for 360-degree photos, too. The r/pics subreddit is often filled with things that would better fit some other subreddits, but this photo from /u/mohair69 is a prime example of something that belongs there.

Ricoh Plug-in Store for Theta V 360-degree camera is now live

Ricoh Plug-in Store for Theta V 360-degree camera is now live

For a while, Ricoh wasn't too well-known in the consumer electronics space as it mostly sold B2B office IT services, but over the last few years it has changed that by releasing impressively-specced 360-degree cameras and effectively dominating that market. It released the Theta V camera in September last year, offering spherical 4K recording plus "surround-sound" audio in a surprisingly compact device. Back in January, Ricoh announced a partner program to develop plug-ins for the Theta V, and that project is now bearing fruit.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear 360 (2017) is $115 on Amazon (50% off MSRP) or $113 from third-party sellers

Phones these days have replaced many of the most commonly used portable appliances from the late 20th century. It's pretty incredible how something that's small enough to fit in your pocket has, for the most part, replaced cameras, camcorders, radios, paper maps, GPS devices, voice recorders, newspapers, credit cards — really, the list just goes on and on. However, 360-degree video cameras are not on that list, so if you aspire to shoot some quality 360-degree video, you'll need to purchase a separate device. Fortunately, Samsung's Gear 360 camera (the 2017 edition) is on sale on Amazon right now for just $115.00, which is half-off its current price on Samsung.com

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear 360 (2017) is just $135.45 ($94.54 off) on Amazon

A GoPro is great if you want to record some action shots in wide-angle, but what about when a fisheye lens isn't wide enough? If you want to record your entire surroundings while barreling down the ski slopes, anything less than a 360-degree view just doesn't cut it. Sure, you could jerry-rig 6 GoPros together onto a twelve-hundred-dollar mount, but what if you want to spend a little less than three grand?

[Insane Deal Alert] Essential Phone plus 360 Camera for just $399

[Insane Deal Alert] Essential Phone plus 360 Camera for just $399

The Essential Phone has kept getting cheaper recently, but we never dreamed we'd see a deal like this. Android's answer to the iPhone X, with its much less conspicuous notch, has been gradually dropping in price since it launched at $699 in the summer. We've recently seen it as low as $449.99 at various retailers, with its 360 Camera accessory also down to $49.99 (from $199.99). But Amazon now has a crazy deal offering the pair for just $399. This could be the best deal of the year.
