Anyone with average photo editing skills can EASILY negate all the cons of this device.

  • Summary: This camera has lots of complaints, but as a graphic designer, I can get around the shotty software/sharing limitations of "print screen" functions and editing straight to whatever platform I want. I LOVE making logos for people with this. Bands, landscapes, everything! I love the big ideas of this camera and think this 360 instant click form will take over all of photography/video in 5-10 years.

Beware - Imagery is very low resolution!!

  • Summary: The quality of the images from a Theta are VERY low resolution and quite grainy, which categorizes it as an expensive toy. Expensive lesson learned so if you're looking for quality panoramic imagery, this is NOT an option.

Expected more

  • Summary: Advantages: - takes panoramas with one click. Drawbacks: - no autofocus - low light sensitivity - slow WiFi - when shooting handheld your fingers are seen close-up in the bottom of the photo - inconvenient application for android that reduces photo resolution while transfering pictures to a smartphone and saves them to its system folder, where they are unaccessible for any gallery apps.

An excellent tool for 360 panoramas

Morgan Sandercock, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: As a long-time photographer, I've been fascinated by ultra-wide angle perspectives. The Ricoh Theta has the ultimate wide angle - you can't go wider than 360 degrees. It's also very convenient to use - turn it on with the tiny button on the side and then snap away - easier than any other camera because you don't even need to aim it at your subject. Viewing the 360 degree images is best on a tablet such as an iPad mini.

  • Summary: A 400 buck toy, my first cell phone had better image quality... Issues, images quality is sub-poor, transferring images very sub-poor, the app is a D-, sharing an image is not user friendly, battery life- c-, connecting to a phone or tablet via WiFi is C+, this camera is almost there... But not at 400 bucks.

Too Much Grain, Not Enough Resolution

  • Summary: Title states it all. Images from this tend to look horrible, and do not justify the price tag. Otherwise a cool concept, though.

  • Summary: Fantastic camera to use when creating views for goggle.com/views. Easy to use and works great with the mobile app. Not good in low light situations.

Neat toy, not very useful, but fun to play with.

  • Summary: I received this Ricoh Theta as a gift, and I've enjoyed playing with it, although I cannot see spending the current price of nearly $400 on this. It is VERY portable, it is about the size of a candy bar and slips into your pocket quite well. It comes with a case to put it in that protects the lens which is a nice extra. It is extremely easy to use, just turn it on (start up time is instantaneous) and push the big button on the front (or is it the back?

what I needed.

Discounted Gentleman, Amazon

  • Summary: I read other reviews and know the picture quality is not as great. So I had expectation. It wasn't clear to me until I received it that it's hard to show the pictures to friends. I don't necessarily want to share it on facebook. Hope to see some better software soon.
