Before we get to the deal, just take a look at this picture, if you can stand it. That’s a dull, two dimensional, simplistic picture of Mt. Everest from one angle with a limited view. This is how normal people take photos, and it’s so 2012 (literally, this picture was taken February 2012).
Now take a look at this. This picture was taken with the Ricoh Theta S. It’s 360 degrees. You can see every angle and rotate it where you want. It’s beautiful and modern. It’s the way you want to remember someone else climbing Mt. Everest.
And if you want to take photos like that during your own adventures at backyard grilling or Saturday morning cartoon watching, the Ricoh Theta S is on sale for $195. It normally sells around $300. This deal is only available for Amazon Prime members.
The “360-degree camera” category is not a large one. Until the last couple of years, the best way to get a view like what the Theta provides was to attach it to a Google Street Car. But in this niche, the Ricoh Theta S is top dog. However, it’s also usually the more expensive option. The Samsung Gear 360, for example, has seen a couple of price drops recently too.
