The Ricoh Theta S is an evolution of the original Theta spherical camera. It captures 360-degree still images and videos at the push of the button and features built-in Wi-Fi for smartphone integration. With a faster lens, more than double the resolution, and larger sensors, it focuses on improved image quality and faster performance.
A new feature with the Theta S is the ability to stream in real time. Either one of the USB and HDMI ports can be used for streaming.
I can recommend the Ricoh Theta S: Yes |

better support on IOS...compared to Android
this is a very nice tool...
I bought the protection case with it to avoid damage to the lenses
setting it up is straight forward and easy. You need software on PC + Tablet + phone (downloaded from 360-Tetha). Here is a small summary
After the device has been charged with the assisting USB cable....
1. you need to connect with PC for setting up with 360Tetha cloud + e.g. facebook + firmware
2 then you connect through WiFi with your phone and change WiFi password
then...you can use Tetha software on your mobile to control the camera that has been placed on e.g. a small gorillapod....
assure that the horizon is straight...as is always the case with Fisheyes; you can check this form your Mobile-Live-View
you then install interval snaphots (e.g. 8 sec and 3 shots..)......you walk away....and press the snapshot button on your mobile device....
you will hear a strange beep...and the shots will be taken.
You then load the files through Mobile-app (transfer)...or through cable and PC (and app on PC)
Using the apps you can load the files to 360Tetha cloud that transforms the files to a 360 photo
