Ricoh. Previously a name closely associated to photocopier and printers, but not so much of imaging devices, has in recent years it has carved a niche in the area of 360-degree imaging that started way back in 2013.

In between now and then, it has turned out a number of 360-degree cameras and the latest to join the lineup is the Ricoh Theta SC2. As denoted by its namesake, it is the second-generation SC model.

It features a streamlined design, takes 14 MP images, records 360-degree spherical video at 30 fps in 4K, and it comes with a bunch of shooting modes with the aim of minimizing tweaking the setting.

There’s an OLED display now for displaying the status. Also it has the ability to switch to self-timer mode at a click of a button.

Other worthy mentions include new white balance for underwater mode, high-speed data transfer (up to 4x faster over the previous model), and improved shake-correction function.

The new Ricoh Theta SC2 360-degree Camera comes in a choice of four new colors and will sell for $299 when it becomes available on November 29, 2019.
