Z1 Sold Out Due to Popularity

RICOH THETA Z1??????????????? | RICOH THETA


The RICOH THETA Z1 has been sold out due to its popularity.
February 25, 2021

Thank you for your continued patronage of THETA.

We are pleased to inform you that the RICOH THETA Z1 has been sold out due to its popularity.

This is because of the compliance with new laws and regulations in Japan and the difficulty in obtaining some of the parts used.

Currently, we are urgently preparing to deliver products that comply with laws and regulations as soon as possible, and we believe that we will be able to inform you by the end of March.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

I think what it means is that for each number of cameras that they sell, they need to have a certain number of spare parts available for repair. And since they could only source so many repair parts, that limits the number of units they could sell. If I read that correctly.

So they stopped selling before they'd be in breach of regulations.

I guess they didn’t like the confusion they created with the K-3III parts shortage notice, so they changed it to popularity. If they made 100 and sold them all they could say that. Parts availability strikes again.

Much better message.

Looking forward to the new version with the larger storage. I may just force myself to buy one.

Wish they would improve the image stabilization and video performance. I switched over to Insta360 for those features.

I hear you. I bought a OneR but have not played around with it too much.

I misplaced my Theta S. I really like the unique imagery produced by the Theta series, I would definitely consider upgrading to the Z1 in the near future.
