New "Spherical Image" camera from Ricoh

From the description I get the feeling this thing is shooting in a proprietary format, but if there's an option for exporting a standard rectangular "Spherical Panorama" image, this would be a great little tool for capturing environment map images for use with 3D models in Hitfilm! Not a bad price, either!

  • I'm pretty sure the capture is proprietary and you have to use their app to get something usable out of it but it's a heck of a lot cheaper than the alternatives out there! ( which also use proprietary apps) GoPro's solution is a mount that takes 6 GoPro's - not cheap
