Ricoh Theta Wins Camera Grand Prix Award

The Ricoh Theta has just received the "Editor's Award" in the Camera Press Club of Japan's Camera Grand Prix 2014. It won alongside the Canon 70D and Olympus OM-D EM-1, which also received the same award. The Nikkor 58mm won "lens of the year", while the Nikon Df won "camera of the year" (the same title given to the 645D and K10D in the past).

I think I'd need to try a theta for myself. I looked at the sample images when they first launched it, but maybe it's something you have to use yourself to appreciate.

Great price for a very innovative camera.

Used it once at a meeting with Ricoh Imaging reps:

Nice that it edits itself out of the picture.

another award for Pentax, and yet the market rarely recognizes them! If Pentax, Nikon, Canon, and all the other guys were "students" in a "classroom" Pentax would probably be the achiever nerd in the back row...
