The RICOH THETA X is equipped with a large user-friendly 2.25-inch touch screen display. With the ability to preview the scene before capture, adjusting shooting settings and view captured images, a range of opera-tions from capture to viewing can be done without using a smartphone, offering vastly improved shooting effi-ciency.
The CMOS image sensor, main processor and lens de-sign have all been renewed. Incorporating a new sensor with approximately 48MP, it is now possible to capture high-resolution 360-degree still images with a maximum output of approximately 60MP. Two image sizes are available to match the scene: 11K for a high-resolution bright-light indoor photography, and 5.5K to capture images easily and efficiently in other scenarios. In addition, enhanced image stabiliza-tion realizes vivid and smooth shooting for 360-degree videos to be captured at a 5.7K-equivalent resolution of 5760 × 2880 pixels at 30 frames per second (fps).
For the first time in the RICOH THETA series, the new RICOH THETA X is powered by an inter-changeable battery and the memory storage ca-pacity can be increased with the use of an external memory card (microSDXC). Even when shooting long hours or capturing many images, users can continue shooting without worrying about remaining battery levels or storage capacity. The separately sold Rechargeable Battery DB-110 can be used as a spare battery.
The RICOH THETA X can easily make a wireless connection to a smartphone without the need to enter an SSID by establishing a Bluetooth connection.
