Ricoh TH-1 Hard Case


The Ricoh TH-1 Hard Case


As I mentioned before, I had ordered the Ricoh TH-1 Hard Case to protect my Theta S camera. The case arrived today.  It is well-made of optical quality plastic and the camera fits snugly inside.

The case will protect the camera against rain, etc. and a certain degree of rough handling.  However, one must guard against scratching the surface, as you are meant to be able to take photographs through the clear case.  It looks like it would be worth getting an ESDDI Thick Protective Neoprene Lens Pouch for it.

I continue to be very happy with the camera, and I look forward to taking many new photo spheres.

Ricoh Theta S Camera


I have just received my new Ricoh Theta S Spherical VR Digital Camera.

First impressions are that its sleek form and rubberized coating make it pleasant to handle.  It comes with a soft case, but I think that any serious user will want to get the Ricoh TH-1 Hard Case.  Mine is on order at the moment as everywhere seems to have sold out of them.

As yet, I have only taken a few photos in the garden, but I am impressed with the simplicity of design and the way that it works with the iPhone app.  A tripod, or monopod is a definite advantage, unless you want a large thumb in the bottom of the picture.

I will be doing some more testing later in the week, but my first thoughts are that this camera does everything that it claims, and does it for a very fair price.

Welcome

What is the purpose of this website?
The primary purpose of this site is to provide a series of links to archaeological photo spheres.
It is also hoped that the site might encourage people to take their own photospheres of archaeological sites.
