Ricoh’s “Multi-Imaging Technology” connects a Pentax K-1 with a Theta S


At the CP+ show in Japan Ricoh had on display their new “Multi-Imaging Technology” that combines the Pentax K-1 with a Ricoh Theta camera and overlays the photos from the DSLR into the 360-degree scene of the Theta camera:

“The process, as I understand it, involves mounting the Theta to the hotshoe of the DSLR, in this case a K-1, and then capturing media with both cameras simultaneously. Then, the files are uploaded to a cloud-based image processing program that analyzes the 360-degree scene and then stitches-in the high-resolution DSLR images over their corresponding locations within the spherical panorama. Even more, the system can also embed videos shot from the K-1 into the spherical panorama scene, which will playback while you pan and zoom around the scene.”

Here is a video demo of Ricoh’s Multi-Imaging Technology:

    Is the camera uploading to the cloud as you’re capturing images? Does that mean the camera has some kind of cellular antenna? That’s huge if true.
