The Ricoh Theta m15 is a 260-degree pocket camera that, in addition to the features of its predecessors, can also shoot video.
The device is fitted with fish-eye lenses on either side of the body, which each capture 180 degrees of scenery each. The resulting images are then stitched together left to right and up to down with no visible stitch lines. The seamless stitching does however require the use of a software program that runs on Windows and Mac.
The device has 4 GB of internal memory, enough to store 1,200 still images or 40 minutes of video.
The Theta m15 pocket camera is available for pre-order in blue, pink, white and yellow color options. It will cost $299.95 and be available for sale in mid-November.
