Description:
The Theta SC2, a new entry level model to the RICOH Theta 360° camera series, was announced in November 2019.

The new RICOH Theta SC2 is pegged as an entry level, easy-to-use model, allowing anyone to capture spherical images. It snaps photos at approximately 14 mega pixels, and smooth 360°spherical video at 30 fps in 4K (3840 x 1920 pixels).

Additionally, the RICOH Theta SC2 comes with a variety of shooting modes such as "Face" mode, which recognizes human faces and applies skin smoothing, and "Night View" mode for shooting low-noise footage after the sun goes down.

New is a status OLED display in the lower section of the body which allows checking of setting modes and battery power remaining.

The SC2 also features a new button that lets the user switch to self-timer mode, making the camera easier to operate than previous models in a standalone manner.
