Ricoh’s Theta V 4K 360-Degree 4K Ultra HD Camera Just Got Itself An $81 Dollar Discount
Stephan Jukic – January 16, 2019
4K cameras are still just barely over the margin line of being niche products in the action video creation market, and when it comes to 4K ultra HD 360-degree shooting models, you can imagine how little demand they’re likely to take up in the huge wider consumer camera market.
However, for those who really are fans of these rather specialized little devices, the following deal on one of the better ultra HD 360-degree photo recording devices out there might be something very interesting.
Right now, the Rico Theta V, which offers full 4K ultra HD video resolution and smooth 360-degree photo-capture capacity is being sold on Amazon for a solid $81 off its regular price. This brings the consumer cost of the Theta V 4K edition down to just $349.99, and with the specs this little 360-degree camera is capable of achieving, that’s not such a bad price at all.
The Theta V 4K delivers a fairly smooth and seamless photo stitching and video recording experience while also coming with robust connectivity specs in the form of its own wireless network (PAN) and its own Bluetooth LE service. Furthermore, the Ricoh Theta V 4K model can deliver 4k ultra HD video at 30 frames per second.
Other features of this handy little photo shooting device include the ability to control the camera through an Android app (in addition to the camera’s built-in controls) and The world’s-first Remote Playback, system, which lets users of this capable fully spherical camera wirelessly playback 360 Degree images and videos on a large-screen display. The Theta V includes a 4-channel microphone for 360 Degree spatial audio recording and as an excellent bonus comes with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that’s particularly well-suited for 4K video handling and easy management of giant 360-degree photos in this little camera.
In other words, the Ricoh Theta V is really built for handling large video files and heavy photographic loads with minimal hiccuping from the size of these types of files. Even with its discount price, the Theta V isn’t exactly very cheap but what you’ll get for the money you spend is more than enough photographic and video performance power for most fans of action camera and 360 degree video recording.
Playing your video back on a 4K ultra HD TV would give you some even more awesome perspective on what you’ve created.
