Video: Ricoh Theta Z1: The DSLR of 360 Cameras? | Video courtesy of Ben Claremont YouTube Channel

Hi All,

360º Camera Expert Ben Claremont compares the Ricoh Theta Z1 to its four nearest competitors in this video.

Ben writes on his YouTube channel:

"Ricoh have been teasing their new 360 camera, the Theta Z1, for the past few months. It’s the first all-in-one 360 camera to feature 2 x 1 inch sensors, which is a big step forward for the 360 camera market. In this review i tested the Z1 in a wide range of conditions from bright sunlight, to mixed lighting interiors too low light. The Z1 puts itself forward as the best 360 camera for virtual tours in mid 2019, however the price is close to double that of the average 360 camera, putting it more in the ’prosumer’ category. So is it worth the money? Let’s find out!"

Based on what you know so far about the Ricoh Theta Theta Z1, would you buy it (or a different 360º 1-click camera?)

Worth noting: While Matterport does not officially support the Ricoh Theta Z1 (as it does with the Ricoh Theta V), at least one WGAN Forum Member reports that it works fine with Matterport.
