The Ricoh Theta V Camera is an advanced handheld omnidirectional camera that can capture both 360° photos and videos shot from the first person POV. Record your own 360° video using the mobile app-based software and share your images/videos on YouTube, or upload your video files to be experienced on a virtual reality headset!
360 cameras can be checked out for two weeks and can be picked up and returned whenever the Makers Lab is open.
