Got it Sunday. Tried recording 4k video this morning. Something went wrong though and it's not a 360. Trying to figure out how to fix but in the meantime you can see that the 4k resolution is quite nice.

UHD version looks really nice, 4k even better. Too bad that chromatic aberration is clearly visible - i think that Ricoh should fix it in a firmware. How about overall image quality?

The release of the TW-1 underwater case is delayed. ETA has gone from "Mid-October" to "Coming soon".

The reason given for the delay is the following: "In order to reach the targeted performance, more time is needed for the final adjustments."

I've had a hard time with UWA photos. Spherical distortion only has advantages in narrow conditions, beyond that I found ugly. With 360 images it's fun for 5 minutes. Past 5 minutes, I go back to the subtleties of artful DSLR image. 360 degree is hardly any subtle and artful, it's just technically bold and artistically gross.
I feel like the technology is still so new, I bet people are going to start taking images with these cameras in really interesting and striking ways. It is easy to be a naysayer.
