Ricoh extends its range of spherical cameras. The manufacturer has just introduced the new Theta SC model. It is much cheaper than the previous models, while offering functionality at a very similar level.
The Ricoh Theta SC is a cheaper and slightly slimmed-down version of the Theta S model last year. It features a 14 megapixel f / 2.0 shutter sensor that lets you shoot movies and make spherical images. For images, we can reach a maximum resolution of 5376 x 2688 pixels, while movies are recorded at 1080p / 30 frames.
Unfortunately, unlike the previous model, which allowed up to 25 minutes of video footage, we have a very limited 8 GB of memory that will only fit 5 minutes of recording. This is still some progress compared to the mite T15, which allows you to record only 3 minutes of recording at 15 frames per second.
The camera has a very simple design and design that makes it easy to handle with one hand. The second one will be useful to hold a smartphone as a viewfinder, because the hardware itself does not have such a device. The smartphone also allows you to view your photos and videos and share them on the web.
