I received a notification from UPS that I would be receiving a package from Ricoh tomorrow. I haven't heard anything from Ricoh but assume it means I am one of the 360 winners of the Theta 360. Thanks to Adam for posting the link. I'm looking forward to the photo challenge, it should be a lot of fun.

Looks like I won a Theta too, although UPS didn't send me an email and they left an InfoNotice. Oh well, I'll get it tomorrow. I'm excited!

(Got an email this morning from UPS that a package from Ricoh Imaging Americas Corp. is due to arrive tomorrow. Thought: "Huh? I didn't order anything... OH, wait - D'OH!")

Called RIAC to confirm, and bingo !

Let the Spherical Imaging games begin !!

Stay tuned, kids......

Count me in for members who received a free Theta.

initial report... it works good out in sunlight, struggles in low lighting situations like a mellow lit living room

it's quite fun to try and nail down though and took a bit for my iphone to recognize it
