Ricoh Theta V unveiled

Ricoh Imaging has announced a new flagship model in its Theta series of 360-degree cameras, the Theta V.

The Theta V allows users to capture 360-degree spherical still images and 4K 360° videos, and makes use of a brand new image sensor. This, the company claims, delivers significant improvements to both stills and video capture over previous models.

Furthermore, thanks in part to developments made for Ricoh's GR models and Pentax-branded DSLRs, the camera is also said to see improvements with regards to both exposures and white balance.
