Recently, I was given a chance to test out the Ricoh Theta Z1 Camera, a 360-degree camera that uses two 1-inch sensors and lenses to capture images and videos. In this review, I will discuss the camera’s features, my experience using it at the Beverly Center, and provide some useful resources for those interested in the camera.
The Ricoh Theta Z1 can capture up to 23MP still images and record 4K videos, and it features an interchangeable lens, which is a first for 360-degree cameras. During my test, I found the image quality to be impressive, with sharp details and quick autofocus. The camera also has a long battery life and useful built-in features such as HDR, interval shooting, and time-lapse video. Additionally, the camera comes with a smartphone app, making image sharing on social media easy.
While the camera performed very well, it’s somewhat bulky and heavy, which can be a bit cumbersome when shooting for extended periods of time. For those interested in learning more about the Ricoh Theta Z1 Camera, the following resources are available:

- The mall has over 160 stores, including designer fashion boutiques and popular retailers.
- It also has a 16-screen AMC movie theater.
- The rooftop garden features a walking path and seating area.
- The Beverly Center is located in the heart of Los Angeles.
The Ricoh Theta Z1 Camera is an excellent and reliable option for those in need of a 360-degree camera with easy-to-use features and great image quality.
