The Japanese blog that originally showed these specifications makes the point that this looks very much like a replacement for the m15 model, bringing the specification of the S to the lower model. That leaves open the possibility, or I think probability, that there will be a higher end model to replace the S some time very soon. If this is priced like the m15, but with the capability of the S, it could be a great stocking filler over the holiday season. I seem to remember reading that the Theta sold very well on Amazon last Christmas.

If this isn't a replacement for the S, then I think we'll have to wait until next year for the next "flagship" spherical body.

No 4k.........not smart.

If this all then they really put Theta development in turtle mode. Maybe this is for Photoplus and they have a new model for CP+.

Exactly my thought.

@Ooku: S also has 14M pixels effective, so nothing new there.

I hope the higher end version will have 4K and WR

I also hope it will be possible to combine two of these in a Delta bracket to make 3D-360 in stead of just 2D-360.

This would be extremely disappointing for me. I'll be picking up the KeyMission 360.

This isn't bad considering it's clearly meant to be an "entry-level" model in the Theta line. Hopefully this means the replacement for the Theta S will have better specs (including the much-anticipated 4K video and WR).

In the DPR interview with Ricoh at Photokina, Kazunobu Saiki said the following about the Theta.

‘we’ve been listening to the customers voice and after Theta S they’re telling us they want 4K video, HDR and easy live streaming. In today’s form factor this is difficult but this is what they want. They want to enjoy video and high resolution images, too. Most likely we need to develop our product to catch up, technologically.’

I don't think he would even bring up discussion of these features unless Ricoh was close to delivering on them. What I read from his statement is that Ricoh is working on a higher end model with 4K, HDR and live streaming capability, but it will probably be bigger than the current model.

The emergence of this SC as an m15 replacement at the lower price point is not at odds with this. In fact, it seems likely that it is an upcoming advanced model that makes it possible to push the S/SC down into the budget position.

Like I said, I wouldn't be shocked if the SC was meant as an "entry-level" offering. The S would then be the "mid-range" offering, and the rumored Delta under development will be the "enthusiast" offering.
