Ricoh’s THETA+ Video app launches for Android

- 8 years ago

The Ricoh Imaging Company Ltd. have announced the launch of the THETA+ Video for Android, an Android app version of the THETA+ Video app for editing video captured with the RICOH THETA 360° camera

Reading the press release for the new THETA+ Video app, Ricoh tell us that, using in conjunction with their 360° cameras, the RICOH THETA S and RICOH THETA m15 it’s easy to edit and process video and time lapse videos. It enables trimming, switching view, colour tone, and also inserting background music. Video can then be cropped to your preferred angle before posting on social media channels.

People with Theta cameras and using Android devices can now edit as 360° video without cropping, not forgetting that videos posted on Facebook and YouTube can be rotated when viewed.

We expect to give the Theta cameras a test in ‘The Measure’ along with the increasing raft of 360 cameras hitting the market recently, so watch this space!
