Gadget Notes – Ricoh Theta S

Date:  Feb 13, 2016

This is my new camera.  It is called Ricoh Theta S.


I bought this from Amazon.


I also bought a leather camera case for it.


This is how my new camera – Ricoh Theta S looks like.

Let’s embed some videos here to demonstrate what this camera can do.

This is where every one gathered around the table to Low Yu-Sheng.  Last time, you cannot capture everybody, now, you can.

Click on the “Spherical Image” below and you can play it directly from

This is a Garden by the Bay outing.  The kids are flying their airplanes.

The coolest thing is when you run in on your Facebook video, you can use the Gyro feature on your iPhone to tilt here move up and down, etc.

It is a simple camera.

There is no view screen.


Only buttons.


To use the camera, you need to use the Theta app on the iPhone or Android phone.


The Apps on the iPhone.


You need to select the WiFi SSID from Theta S.


And then, you are connected.


And you can start shooting your 360 degree photos.


Once done, you can view it and post it on Twitter or Facebook.  There are also have a web site for you to post and keep your videos.


The interface is way to simple.  But if it gets the job done, then, no complaint from me.


If you always do things with a lot of people and you wish to capture all the precious moment, I think this camera is for you.
