New accessories and PENTAX 100 YEARS OF HISTORY original goods announced

1. RICOH THETA Stick TM-2 and RICOH THETA Stick TM-3 selfie sticks

The lineup includes two models specially designed for use with the RICOH THETA series; a long type and a compact, lightweight short type, that you can choose based on your photography and videography needs. Using a lock mechanism developed by Velbon Corporation, the RICOH THETA Sticks are not flimsy and do not bend much, allowing for stable use.

Shared features

  • Distancing the user’s hands from the THETA body allows the user to take 360° images without their fingers interfering with the shot
  • Utilizes a lock mechanism developed by Velbon Corporation, allowing the THETA to be used in a stable state even when the stick is at full extension, despite its slim configuration
  • Easy-to-hold rubber type grip with matte black color

 

Ricoh Theta Stick TM-2 (longer type)

A selfie stick designed for use with the RICOH THETA series, that distances the user’s hands from the THETA body, allowing the user to take 360° images without their fingers interfering with the shot. Approximately 83 cm long when extended, the TM-2 can be used for shooting in a wide range of scenarios, such as when traveling or at events, or when shooting the surrounding scenery. It features a specially designed tilting camera platform that prevents the camera platform itself from appearing in shot, and reduces the amount the pipe section is captured in the shot to a minimum when using the TM-2 without tilting it. Conversely, the camera platform can be tilted at an angle to the pipe, allowing the subject to be shot front-on to the lens. The TM-2 is also equipped with a dial that reduces wear on the THETA tripod mount holes, and utilizes a lock mechanism developed by Velbon Corporation, a leading Japanese tripod manufacturer, allowing the THETA to be used in a stable state even when the stick is at full extension, despite its slim design. Adopted an easy-to-hold rubber type grip in matte black, the TM-2 boasts an exterior with a luxurious finish, with the aluminum alloy pipe section also coated in black so that it does not stand out.

Approximately 42 cm long when fully extended, the TM-3 features a design that allows users to capture subjects with ease for selfies or pleasure scenes, focusing on people. The folded up length is just 18 cm long, the TM-3 is convenient and easy to use on a tabletop when combined with products such as mini-tripods. Compact, lightweight and easy to carry, it features a design that keeps the camera platform out of shot. The TM-3 is also equipped with a dial that reduces wear on the THETA tripod mount holes, and utilizes a lock mechanism developed by Velbon Corporation, a leading Japanese tripod manufacturer, allowing the THETA to be used in a stable state even when the stick is at full extension, despite its slim design.
