The Ricoh Theta S VR camera looks superb and it works very well. It connects through its Wi-Fi network,
and its 4 buttons give very good control without requiring its application.It stands up on its own and has a tripod socket.
There is 8GB of storage space built in, which holds about 63 minutes of video.The exposure controls offer auto,shutter
or ISO priority and full guide, plus EV compensation.
The Theta S records up to 25 minutes per video clip.
Shooting video or photos is simple whether you do it from the iOS application or using the Theta S as a standalone device.
The app shows the camera’s 360-degree view live, and it
can transfer photos as they are shot.Photos can have areas
blurred or be transferred to a separate app for editing and enhancing.
Its Wi-Fi network is slow to transfer 360-degree video clips to iPhone, but USB to your Mac is an solution.There’s a Mac
application for converting media,which can be shared to Tumblr,Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the Theta360 site.
