RICOH ANNOUNCES AVAILABILITY OF RICOH THETA SC HATSUNE MIKU 360-DEGREE CAMERA AND APP

Limited-edition camera commemorates 10th anniversary of Japanese vocaloid pop star

WEST CALDWELL, N.J.Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the North American availability of a special, Hatsune Miku version of the Ricoh Theta SC camera. This limited-edition, 360-degree camera package was created in collaboration with Hatsune Miku developer Crypton Future Media to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its popular, singing digital avatar. The package includes a Ricoh Theta SC camera with graphics of the Hatsune Miku character by original illustrator KEI on a specially-colored camera body, as well as access to a smartphone application that enables users to integrate the Hatsune Miku character into their 360-degree images

Hatsune Miku is an extremely popular digital persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application, with a loyal following in Japan and around the world.

The Ricoh Theta SC Type Hatsune Miku, which incorporates the same tech specs as the regular Theta SC version, features an illustration of Hatsune Miku on a blue-green-colored camera body—her signature color scheme—as well as a pink-illuminated power button. When the shutter button is pressed to capture a 360-degree image, the camera emits a custom Hatsune Miku sound, developed by Crypton Future Media. With the dedicated Ricoh Theta Type Hatsune Miku application for iOS and Android devices, users can overlay a three-dimensional image of Hatsune Miku on their 360-degree photos. The app includes 55 different poses, including Snow Miku, a winter character whose outfits are determined by annual design competitions.

The Ricoh Theta Hatsune Miku exclusive editing application can only be used with this Theta model.

The Ricoh Theta SC Type Hatsune Miku package includes a dog-tag key holder printed with the camera serial number (up to 3,939), and blue-green colored 100-percent wool case by Japanese artisan crafts company, Abitax. Both the dog-tag key holder and packaging feature an exclusive illustration of Hatsune Miku created by well-known Japanese artist, fuzichoco.

    Richo, what’s going on with the GR II line?

    • TinusVerdino

      Who’s Richo? The GR II is for sale

      • Narren Rot

        its been for sale for quite some time now, but a nice 24MP aps-c back iluminated sensor, and maybe an updated lens would be nice thing to see on the long awaited (real) update to the GR line.

        • D’Agosta David

          I agree…..maybe weather sealing would be nice too.

    • Narren Rot

      I believe you meant just GR, and yeah… I am wondering the same thing. They were suppos to work on it after they finished K-1 (where supposedly all their resources went for that moment), but after K-1, they’ve released KP and yet we have nothing on the GR front…

      • D’Agosta David

        Yes, I did mean the GR line…..what’s going with Richo.

        • ZMWT

          They are probably developing a new line of mirrorless cameras. Because patching existing mess they have, makes little sense.
