Video: Ricoh Theta Z2 Coming THIS WEEK? What Can We Expect? | Video courtesy of The 360 Guy YouTube Channel | 22 February 2021

From The 360 Guy YouTube Channel:

The Ricoh Theta Z2 could be announced this week! [Week of 22 February 2021] There's some evidence to suggest that the next generation professional Theta camera is on the way and an announcement could be made on the 25th of February.

I should stress that this is currently just a rumor and there are no confirmed reports of a new Ricoh Theta camera, however some social media posts seem to suggest there will be.

The Ricoh Theta Z1 became the go-to all in one 360 camera for creation virtual tours. What will the Theta Z2 bring? I hope to see an upgrade in resolution, some optical improvements to reduce noise, better battery life and removable memory.

Higher Rez and better battery and memory card a must.

Official statement from Ricoh:

The RICOH THETA Z1 has been sold out due to its popularity.

February 25, 2021
Thank you for your continued patronage of THETA.
We are pleased to inform you that the RICOH THETA Z1 has been sold out due to its popularity.

This is because of the compliance with new laws and regulations in Japan and the difficulty in obtaining some of the parts used.
Currently, we are urgently preparing to deliver products that comply with laws and regulations as soon as possible, and we believe that we will be able to inform you by the end of March.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

A couple of outlets are saying this means announcement of a new model by the end of the month but this could just mean more Z1s, surely? This hasn't been precipitated by great innovation on Ricoh's part but by supply chain shortages so I wouldn't be too hopeful.

@aidanashby

Thanks for posting.

I guess not all dreams come true!

It's somewhat surprising that Ricoh has not updated the Ricoh Theta Z1: particularly for real estate photographers that want:

1. removable battery
2. bigger/better sensor
3. memory card

@ArchimedStudio

Do you think that Ricoh could add LiDAR to the Ricoh Theta Z1?
