Theta SC2 is equipped with a range of preset modes that delivery the perfect footage for specific subjects and shooting scenarios. Also an all new underwater* mode, that allows the user to adjust to the ideal white balance when shooting underwater has been added.
A mode that detects human faces and automatically places them at the center of the image. This mode is also using exposure compensation and noise reduction to apply skin smoothing.
A mode that utilizes dynamic range compensation and noise reduction through image compositing to deliver beautiful night-time shots.
A mode that controls two lenses individually to provide clear, bright footage of subjects in scenarios where there are significant variations in brightness levels, such as inside and outside vehicle, or on a stage.
Easy-to-Understand Camera Design and Interface
The lower half and side of the THETA SC2 is where all of the camera user interface happens. The shutter release button and OLED display are both on the front of the camera. On the side of the camera you will find the Power, Wifi, Mode and Self-timer buttons.
Dual Communication and High-Speed Data Transfer
The THETA SC2 can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth®. Improvements to ease of use have also been made. Smartphones can now be used for shooting with just a Bluetooth® connection, and when the camera has entered the sleep state, it can be powered on from the basic app. With a wireless LAN connection, all functions can be used, including live view display and image transfer on a smartphone, which can be used separately as appropriate to the shooting circumstances.
The process has been changed such that the “top/bottom” correction is performed when videos are played back instead of when data is transferred, making the video transfer rate approximately 4x faster than the previous Ricoh Theta SC model.
