360° makes it real.
The Theta V 360° spherical camera is easy to use and compact enough to carry everywhere. A new image sensor and processor produces more realistic “as-if-you-were-there” 360° content. High-speed data transfer allows you to quickly and wirelessly upload 14 megapixel stills and high-resolution 4K videos for immediate showing and sharing. Omni-directional audio recording functionality enables 360° spatial audio. The camera can connect to a mobile device using either Bluetooth or wireless LAN to allow for flexible operation based on user preferences. In addition, the Theta V has a highly expandable operating system so that it can receive future performance enhancements through firmware updates.
Bringing innovation to the imaging experience.
Record and recreate the real world in 360 degrees.
High-quality 360 degree still images equivalent to 14M
Record high-resolution 360 degree still images equivalent to 14 megapixel output levels. A completely new algorithm delivers low-noise, high-resolution, and high-quality images from low to high sensitivity.
4K video shooting
4K/30fps high-quality videos
Video performance has been significantly improved, making 4K (3840 x 1920, 56Mbps), 30 fps high-resolution 360 degree shooting possible. Enjoy recording realistic spherical images.
360 spatial audio
Record 360°spatial audio with a 4-channel microphone
New VR (virtual reality) compatible spatial audio technology is adopted to this model. Enjoy a completely new, realistic experience with linked video and audio.
Compact and slim design
Compact and lightweight, the THETA design delivers both high-quality 360 degree image shooting and ease of use.
High-speed readout image sensor
Two 1 / 2.3-type image sensors provide high-speed image data readout and delivers high-quality spherical video.
The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ is used as the main processor. It delivers a number of improvements including faster image processing and wireless transfer speed, and power saving capabilities.
High-performance 4-channel microphone
Four built-in microphones make it possible to record audio independently from four directions. This is then converted to a format that recreated natural 360° spatial sound.
Exclusive external 3D Microphone TA-1 (Optional)
This four-direction 360° spatial audio microphone has been designed especially for the THETA V. Use it to record even higher quality audio with a more realistic feel.
New functions for further possibilities in a spherical camera
World’s first Remote Playback
Image data recorded on the THETA V can be played back in 360 degrees on a monitor such as a TV. The THETA V also functions as a remote control which can be used to select the image file and move displayed 360 degree image up, down, left, and right. It can also zoom-in and out.
High sensitivity of ISO 3200/6400
Enjoy high-sensitivity shooting from ISO 3200 (still images) to ISO 6400 (videos, live streaming).
1/25000 seconds shutter speed
The shutter speed can be set in a range from 1/25000 to 60 seconds.
Underwater Housing TW-1 (Optional)
This waterproof housing (JIS Class 8 equivalent protection class) can be used underwater to a depth of 30m. The housing features AR anti-reflective coating and dirt-resistant coating.
Equipped with a gyro sensor
The THETA V is equipped with a new gyro sensor in addition to the conventional acceleration sensor. Tilt detection precision has been significantly improved, along with top/bottom correction precision enhancements and the ability for Remote Playback.
Advanced image processing technology
Advanced image processing technology delivers image quality with minimal loss of shadow detail and highlight blowout, even in scenes with varying levels of contrast. The white balance algorithm has been completely re-tuned to achieve natural hues for a wide range of scenes.
The minimum shooting interval is 4 seconds, enabling a greater range of use when creating time lapse videos.
4K live streaming
The THETA V supports 4K compatible 360 live streaming. Output the 4K (3840x 1920 pixels), 360 degree image in real-time.
More 360 degree freedom with improved controls and extensibility
Dual communication – Bluetooth and wireless LAN
In addition to wireless LAN, Bluetooth is now adopted for constant connection to your smartphone. Enjoy instant remote shooting and change shooting settings wherever you are.
Wireless LAN client mode
You can connect to a smartphone via wireless LAN access point. You can connect the THETA V using the internet connection on your smartphone. Now you are free from the troublesome wireless connection switching.
High-speed data transfer
Communication speed for both still images and video is drastically improved. The maximum data transfer is approximately x2.5 faster than that of conventional models
Expanded functions via plugins
A new system based on the Andoid OS is used on this mode. Adding plugins to the camera makes it possible to expand various features.
