The Theta V 360° 4K Spherical VR Camera is easy to use and compact enough to carry everywhere. A new image sensor and processor produces more realistic “as-if-you-were-there” 360° content. High-speed data transfer allows you to quickly and wirelessly upload 14 megapixel stills and high-resolution 4K videos for immediate showing and sharing. Omni-directional audio recording functionality enables 360° spatial audio. The camera can connect to a mobile device using either Bluetooth or wireless LAN to allow for flexible operation based on user preferences. In addition, the Theta V has a highly expandable operating system so that it can receive future performance enhancements through firmware updates.

High-quality image

Record high-resolution, 360 degree still images equivalent to 14M output pixels. A completely new algorithm delivers low-noise, high-resolution, and high-quality images from low to high sensitivity.

4K video shooting

Video performance has been significantly improved, making 4K (3840x1920, 56Mbps), 30 fps high-resolution 360 degree shooting possible. Enjoy recording realistic spherical images.

Record 360° spatial audio with a 4-channel microphone

New VR (virtual reality) compatible spatial audio technology is adopted to this model. Enjoy a completely new, realistic experience with linked video and audio.

World's first Remote Playback

Image data recorded on THETA V can be played back in 360 degrees on a monitor such as TV. The THETA V also functions as a remote control which can be used to select the image file and move displayed 360 degree image up, down, left, and right. It can also zoom-in and out.

High-speed readout image sensor

Two 1/2.3-type image sensors provide high-speed image data readout. An image sensor is included which delivers high-quality spherical video.

Main processor

The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ is used as a main processor. It delivers a variety of improvements including faster image processing and wireless transfer speed, and power saving capabilities.

High-performance 4-channel microphone

Four built-in microphones make it possible to record audio independently from four directions. This is then converted to a format that recreates natural 360° spatial audio.

Exclusive external 3D Microphone TA-1 (Optional)

This is a four-direction, 360° spatial audio microphone designed specially for the THETA V. Use it to record even higher quality audio with a more realistic 

High sensitivity of ISO 3200/6400

Enjoy high-sensitivity shooting from ISO 3200 (still images) to ISO 6400 (videos, live streaming). This range of sensitivity is highly effective for shooting in dark scenes.

Underwater Housing TW-1 (Optional)

This is an authentic waterproof housing with JIS Class 8 equivalent protection class for shooting underwater to 30 m. The housing features AR anti-reflective coating and dirt-resistant coating.

1/25000 seconds shutter speed

The shutter speed can be set in a range from 1/25000 to 60 seconds.

Equipped with a gyro sensor

This model is equipped with a new gyro sensor in addition to the conventional acceleration sensor. Tilt detection precision has been significantly improved, along with top/bottom correction precision enhancements and the ability for Remote Playback.

Advanced image processing technology

Advanced image processing technology cultivated over the years in camera development deliver image quality with minimal loss of shadow detail and highlight blowout even in scenes with varying levels of contrast. The white balance algorithm has been completely retuned to achieve natural hues for a wide range of scenes.

Interval shooting

The minimum shooting interval is 4 seconds. This enables a greater range of use when creating time lapse videos.

4K live streaming

This model supports 4K compatible 360 degree live streaming. Output the 4K (3840x1920 pixels), 360 degree image in real-time.

Dual communication - Bluetooth & wireless LAN

In addition to wireless LAN, Bluetooth is now adopted for constant connection4 to your smartphone. Enjoy instant remote shooting and change shooting settings wherever you are.

Wireless LAN client mode

You can connect to a smartphone via wireless LAN access point. You can connect to THETA V using the Internet connection on your smartphone. Now you are free from troublesome wireless connection switching.

High-speed data transfer

Communication speed for both still images and videos is drastically improved. The maximum data transfer is approximately x2.5 faster than that of conventional models.

Expanded functions via plugins

A new system based on the Android OS is used on this mode. Adding plugins to the camera makes it possible to expand various features.
