Ricoh Plug-in Store for Theta V 360-degree camera is now live

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Ricoh isn't too well-known in the consumer electronics space as it mostly sells B2B office IT services, so it may have been surprising to see it come out with an impressively-specced 360-degree camera. It released the Theta V camera in September last year, offering spherical 4K recording plus "surround-sound" audio in a surprisingly compact device. Back in January, Ricoh announced a partner program to develop plug-ins for the Theta V, and that project is now bearing fruit.

Ricoh announces plug-in partner program for Theta V 360-degree 4K camera

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Ricoh's Theta V came out just last summer, bringing 4K 360-degree recording in a diminutive package. At the time, Ricoh announced that the new camera would be able to make use of first-party plug-ins via the companion app. Now the company is expanding things to a larger audience, opening up a new "Plug-in Partner Program" for the Ricoh Theta V. 

Like the existing first-party plugins, the new ones will work via the Android app, allowing third-party developers to create and distribute their own tools for use with the camera.

Google’s rebuilding its Street View panoramas to look better, and here’s how

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Google's Street View has become ubiquitous. It's one of the pioneering features of Google Maps, and it has become such an integrated part of our modern lives that we might take it for granted. Not long ago, looking around from an arbitrary point on a map would have sounded like science fiction, but today that's just another way to see where something is. Now Google's making that experience even better, by improving how Street View stitches together its elaborate 360-degree panorama images. 

If you're interested in the long version, you can read Google's full post on the subject over at the Research Blog, and for a short overview and visual companion on our exploration, check out Google's four-minute video on the subject just below.

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

360-degree cameras are all the rage these days, and Ricoh's new Theta V has an impressive set of features that might just make it worth your attention. Not only is it able to capture content in 4K, but it can also record "surround-sound" audio, each of which can add an extra layer of realism and immersion to your content. The product was just announced ahead of IFA, and although it's currently set for a September release, it's already up for pre-order.

Garmin announces the VIRB 360-degree action camera, can record video at 5.7k and costs $799.99

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

There are a handful of good 360-degree cameras for consumers, like the Samsung Gear 360 and EZVIZ Mini 360. Garmin's first entry into this product category was announced today - the VIRB 360. It's a pretty powerful little camera, but you'll be paying a premium for it.

To start off with, the VIRB 360 can record video at 5.7K/30FPS, 4K/30fps, or 1080p/120FPS. Only the 4k/30FPS mode stitches together the video while recording (you'll have to use the editing software for the other modes), and the 1080p mode just captures regular 16:9 video.

YouTube in the living room now supports 360-degree video

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

I can't say I watch 360-degree videos much on YouTube... or at all. But I'm sure some people do, and if you are one of those people, you'll be happy to know that you can now easily view 360-degree content on your living room TV.

Google says the new functionality should work on any YouTube television apps, be it on your Xbox One or Android TV. I assume it will work on the Chromecast as well, but that was not explicitly mentioned.

Periscope for Android now supports broadcasting 360-degree video

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

What's cooler than running a live stream from your phone? How about a live stream from your phone in 360 degrees? Periscope has been testing the feature with select accounts for a few months now, and just recently opened it up to all iOS users. Now the Android app supports broadcasting in 360 degrees as well.

As you might expect, you'll need a compatible camera to get started. Right now the only camera supported by Periscope for Android is the Inta360 Nano.

Google unveils new YI HALO VR camera for their Jump platform

Monday, April 24th, 2017

hero2

Back in 2015 at I/O, and just after announcing Cardboard, Google rolled out Jump. At the time the hardware that accompanied it was the GoPro Odyssey, a big circular contraption containing 16 GoPro cameras. It was meant to make recording in 360 degrees for VR purposes a bit easier, both logistically and in terms of the tools and software needed. Don't be too surprised if that flew under your radar at the time; there hasn't been much in the way of news from Google about Jump since then (though there was a cool WebVR film announced a few days ago that used it).
