Ricoh will be showcasing their next generation RICOH THETA at IFA Berlin. They will be showing the new Theta and accessories. The booth is at Hall 11.1, No.132, from September 1st to 6th. It appears that this will be the 4K version of the Ricoh Theta (likely to be called Theta V).
If this is indeed the Theta 4K , it will be the most highly anticipated 360 camera from Ricoh. Theta fans have been clamoring for a 4K model for two years now and were jubilant at the announcement of the 4K Theta back in April. At that time, Ricoh would only say that it would be released in 2017.
About a month ago, Ricoh posted an official sample video from the Theta 4K and it looked very impressive. Then about a week later, there was a leak about a “Theta V,” a new model with a microphone jack, which appears upon further analysis to be the Theta 4K. We should find out soon.
In the past, Ricoh has used Photokina to launch new models of the Ricoh Theta, but Photokina is a biennial event and there’s no Photokina this year. IFA is one of the largest trade shows and it makes sense that Ricoh would launch the Theta 4K / Theta V here.
