CES 2016: Ricoh Imaging

Ricoh has been a staple around the office for decades. This year after acquiring Pentax they have introduced the Theta S 360 degree spherical camera which won the Best of CES in the digital camera category.

I sat down with Jim Malcolm, the President of Ricoh Imaging America, to discuss this camera. This camera shoots fully spherical stills and videos so that you can view the entire scene. It allows the user to simply touch the screen to move the image up down and around. This camera is exceeding expectations everywhere.
