ricoh thetaRicoh has introduced a new version of the Theta, the 360-degree imaging device. This one has video.

And you get spherical video images, up to 3 minutes long.

This new model is available in four colours: blue, yellow, white, and pink.

The company plans to open up their API (Application Programming Interface) and provide an SDK (Software Development Kit) on theta360.com coinciding with the November release of the new Theta. Developers can create original Theta apps with a variety of settings to perform various operations using the device.

The Ricoh Theta will be available for a suggested retail price of $349.99.

Spherical stills are captured in one shot, and then can be transferred to a smartphone via WiFi where you can change the size, shape and composition with simple fingertip operations using a free dedicated app. You can also change the shooting setup using a smartphone.

By utilizing a video control program, you get spherical videos that have no stitch lines. The image size, shape and composition can be changed.
