RICOH THETA SC2 for Business announced

A camera that can shoot 360-degree spherical images in a single shot
RICOH THETA SC2 for Business equipped with easy-to-use modes for business such as real estate

RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. will release the RICOH THETA SC2 for Business. The SC2 for Business is the entry level model to the RICOH THETA 360° camera series designed for business use and capable of capturing 360° still images and video footage.

Since its release in 2013 as the world’s first*1 360° camera, “RICOH THETA” has been used in a multitude of environments and offers unlimited potential for image expression. Due to the rapid growth of the VR (virtual reality) market, the increasing number of social media services that are compatible with 360° images, and the growing demand for 360° images in the business market, 360° photography has become increasingly relevant.

The gray body color of the new RICOH THETA SC2 for Business is especially designed for this new business model. The SC2 for Business has a preset “Room” mode with HDR settings suitable for shooting indoors or inside a car, which is the default mode when you turn on the camera*2. There is also a self-timer function which enables time-shift between shooting with the front and rear lens. These functions make this model fit for use in businesses such as real estate and automobile sales, where pictures are often taken indoors or inside cars.

The RICOH THETA SC2 for Business snaps photos at approximately 14 megapixels with smooth, immersive 360°spherical video at 30 fps (frames per second) in 4K (3840 × 1920 pixels). In addition, the OLED (Organic EL display) in the lower section of the body allows at-a-glance checking of a range of information such as setting modes and remaining battery power. It also features a new button that lets the users switch to self-timer mode, making the camera easier to operate in a standalone manner.

Ricoh will continue to expand its business in order to extend the use of 360° images and videos from leisure to business use.

*1 For consumer products, this refers to the fact that the camera can capture the entire space surround the photographer, not just in a half-sphere or horizontal direction, in a single shot. (As of October 2013. According to Ricoh research.)
*2: This model is not equipped with preset Face, Night View, and Lens to Lens Exposure.

 

Main features of the new RICOH THETA SC2 for Business

1. Capable of capturing high-quality, high resolution 360° spherical still images and video footage

・A bright wide-aperture F2.0 large-diameter compact twin lens folded optics system and the latest image sensor delivers detailed 360° spherical images at an output resolution of approximately 14 megapixels. Exposure accuracy and white balance algorithms have been completely revamped from previous RICOH THETA SC models, and offers accurate, natural expression when shooting in Auto mode. Furthermore, an improved image sensor and image processing engine now allows shooting high-resolution 4K (3,840 x 1920 pixels) video at 30 fps (frames per second) for up to three minutes, equivalent to high-end cameras.

2. Functions fit for business use

・Preset “Room” mode which is the default setting when turning on the camera, is suitable for indoor shooting where there is gap in brightness between outdoors and indoors.
Also, the self-timer function enables time shift between shooting with the front lens and rear lens making it possible for the photographer not to be captured in the image.

3. Easy-to-understand user interface on the camera body

・The lower area of the camera body is equipped with an OLED status display that displays icons indicating the setting mode, smartphone connection state, remaining battery power, and other useful information. A self-timer button makes operation more convenient when shooting with the camera in a standalone configuration.

4. Dual communication and high-speed data transfer using Bluetooth® and wireless LAN

・The RICOH THETA SC2 for Business can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth® and improvements to ease of use have also been made. Smartphones can now be used for shooting with just a Bluetooth® connection. With a wireless LAN connection, all functions can be used including live view display and image transfer on a smartphone, which can be used separately as appropriate to the shooting circumstances.

・The process has been changed such that the “top/bottom” correction is performed when videos are played back instead of when data is transferred, making the video transfer rate approximately 4x faster*3 than the previous Ricoh Theta SC model.

RICOH WG-70 announced

RICOH WG-70 announced

Digital compact cameras for underwater photography down to 14 meters, with improved usability such as the Digital Microscope mode

RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. announced the launch of the RICOH WG-70 digital compact camera. This new model features a compact, lightweight body design, with exceptional waterproof, shockproof and various shooting function performance.

This standard-class waterproof digital compact camera is designed so that anyone can capture severe shooting environments of outdoors more casually, effortlessly and without worries. Despite its compact, lightweight body, the WG-70 offers outstanding basic specifications that outperform ordinary digital cameras and smartphones under demanding outdoor conditions. It is waterproof to a depth of 14meters; shockproof against a fall from a height of 1.6 meters; and freeze-proof against temperatures as low as -10°C. It also comes equipped with an outdoor-friendly LCD monitor whose brightness level can be instantly adjusted to the lighting level of a shooting situation.

 

Main Features of the new RICOH WG-70

1. Heavy-duty construction assuring underwater shooting down to 14 meters, for up to two hours

The solid, airtight body common to the WG-70 is not only waterproof down to a depth of 14 meters for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX 8 or JIS Class 8), but is also shockproof against falls from a height of 1.6 meters,* dustproof (equivalent to IPX 6 or JIS Class 6), freeze-proof to temperatures as low as -10°C, and crushproof against weights up to 100kgf (kilogram force). ** Thanks to this heavy-duty construction, the cameras perform superbly and dependably even in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.

* Measured under RICOH IMAGING-original testing standards — from a height of 1.6 meters, onto a surface of 5cm-thick plywood — conforming to Method 516.5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F.
** Measured under RICOH IMAGING-original testing standards.

 

2. Exceptional image quality

The WG-70 comes equipped with a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, which assures excellent high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics and high-speed readout of image data signals. Coupled with a high-performance imaging engine, this image sensor delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and super-high-resolution images with approximately 16.0 effective megapixels. These models also provide advanced image processing functions, made possible by the latest super-resolution technology, to assure sharp, clear, high-resolution images. They even offer such innovative features as Handheld Night Snap mode, which automatically captures several images of the same nighttime scene and produces a single, blur-free composite image from them.

 

3. Improved usability of Digital Microscope mode

The WG-70 has a Digital Microscope mode that allows the subject to be greatly enlarged. Usability is improved as the recording size can be newly selected from 2M (1920 x 1080), which gives priority to enlargement with digital zoom, to a maximum of 12M (16: 9) (4608 x 2592), which is useful when printing or trimming with high resolution which further expands the field of shooting.

 

4. Six Macro Lights to assist close-up shooting, with various functions

Ideally positioned around the circumference of the lens barrel for macro shooting, six LED Macro Lights allow the WG-70 to provide bright, uniform illumination on a subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected. Thanks to these Macro Lights, the user can clearly see a magnified view of the microscopic world undetectable by the naked eye on the camera’s LCD monitor, and effortlessly capture eye-catching, close-up images. In order to minimize camera shake and subject shake, the Instant Illumination Enhance function allows for the use of a higher shutter speed by automatically raising the discharge level of the Macro Lights at the moment of shutter release. The Macro Lights also provide other useful functions, such as a Self-Portrait Assist mode, which uses the blink of an LED lamp to check if the subject’s face has been safely captured within the picture frame, and the LED Lighting mode, which uses the Macro Lights as a lighting device in the dark.

 

5. Advanced underwater shooting mode

Specifically designed for underwater photography, the image processing of Underwater and Underwater Movie shooting modes optimize color, contrast, and white balance, based on the data of images captured under the water. These modes deliver sharp, true-to-life images by enhancing shades of red, which are lost in underwater photography, while effectively compensating for the loss of contrast caused by the diffusion of light in water. During Underwater mode, the Flash Off + Flash On option, allows the user to consecutively capture two images — with a single shutter release — one without flash and another with flash.

 

6. Cross Processing added to Image Tone

Cross Processing is an effect popular among our products, which allows you to enjoy unique photographic expressions. With WG-70, this mode is added to Image Tone, which can be selected with several shooting modes including, P (Program). The parameters of the image is adjusted to give a unique color-changed finish, like a cross-processed film ***.

*** A film development technique that uses unconventional film development to create a distinctive finish with dramatic, stylized colors.

 

7. 5X optical zoom lens with a 28mm wide-angle coverage

The WG-70 feature a high-performance, five-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm to 140mm in the 35mm format) to accommodate a wide range of scenes and subjects, including sweeping landscapes. They also provide other convenient shooting functions, such as a macro mode to capture dramatic close-up images from a minimum focusing distance of a mere one centimeter; an Intelligent Zoom function to extend the zoom range to approximately 36 times (equivalent to 1008mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality, for superior telephoto photography; and an interval shooting mode, which comes in handy for fixed-point observation.

 

8. Full HD movie recording for extended shooting of high-quality movies

The WG-70 provides Full HD movie recording employing the H.264 recording format. Users can capture high-quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. To add some creative touches to movie recording, they also feature a high-speed camera function**** for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips, and an interval movie function. A micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is also provided on the camera body for simultaneous output of Full HD movie clips and sound to external audio-visual devices.

**** When this function is selected, the recorded size is fixed at 1280 x 720 pixels.

 

9. Triple anti-shake protection to prevent blurred images in all applications

1. Pixel Track SR mechanism – When recording still images, this advanced shake-reduction mechanism effectively compensates for camera shake by digitally processing affected images.
2. Digital SR mode – When the camera detects low-lighting conditions in still-image shooting, this mode automatically raises the sensitivity up to as high as ISO 6400, making it possible to use a higher shutter speed and effectively minimize the adverse effect of camera shake and subject shake when dealing with poor lighting conditions.
3. Movie SR mode – During movie recording, this mode effectively compensates for the misalignment of images caused by camera shake through the use of exclusive software to produce beautiful, blur-free movie clips.

 

10. 2.7-inch LCD monitor with the Outdoor View Setting mode

The WG-70 come equipped 2.7-inch LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions and approximately 230,000 dots. The monitor’s AR (Anti-Reflection) coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on-screen image even in the harsh sunshine often encountered during outdoor shooting. It also comes equipped with such convenient features as: the Outdoor View Setting mode, which easily sets the optimum monitor brightness level for a given lighting condition.

 

11. Other features

・A range of WG-series mount accessories (optional) to accommodate diverse camera setups
・Two remote control receptors (one in front and another in the back) to widen signal coverage
・Macro stand (included) to maintain a minimum focusing distance of one centimeter to the subject during extended observation and shooting of macro images
・High-speed Face Detection function to capture as many as 32 faces in focus in approximately 0.03 seconds (minimum); Smile Capture function to automatically release the shutter when the subject’s smile is detected
・Outdoor-friendly Style Watch function to display the time on the LCD monitor, using an extended push of the OK button when the camera’s power is turned off
・Delay-free, pushbutton start of the playback mode, using an extended push of the playback button
・Auto Picture mode to automatically select the most appropriate shooting mode from 16 different scene modes

RICOH GR III choseas the “Best compact/fixed lens camera” on DPR

RICOH GR III chosen as the “Best compact/fixed lens camera” on DPR!

RICOH GR III won “Best compact/fixed lens camera” award on DPReview Awards 2019!

“This is always a tricky category, spanning multiple sensor formats and including both zoom and fixed focal length lenses. This year saw the release of some very impressive – and very different – compact / fixed-lens compact cameras, from the high-end Leica Q2 to the more consumer-friendly Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II.

Despite their different shapes, sizes and prices, all of the cameras in this section cater to the same basic need: high quality imaging, in a compact form factor.”

 

Shortlist:
  • Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II
  • Leica Q2
  • Ricoh GR III
  • Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII

 

Winner: RICOH GR III

“First announced in 2018, the GR III was released this year and quickly became one of our favorite compact cameras. Small and lightweight, but with a stabilized sensor and capable of stunning image quality the GR III is – like the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII – a wonderful camera for travel and everyday photography.

Yes, the lens is a fixed 28mm equivalent. No, the video mode isn’t great, but this is a pure photography camera, capable of getting you images that larger, heavier or more complicated models simply won’t.”
