Ricoh Theta SC2 is a more affordable version of the Ricoh Theta V, with some features removed (spatial audio, mic input, plugin support, shorter recording times) and a few new beginner-friendly options.  Theta SC2 for Business is a similar model to the SC2 but has different presets that are intended to make it a “foolproof” to take virtual tour photos.
