CSC : Digital Compact System Cameras - This new category of digital Compact System Cameras with interchangeable lenses was mislabeled for a time as "Mirrorless Cameras" by those forgetting about "Mirrorless" Rangefinder cameras.  Such confusion is easily understandable, since interchangeable rangefinder cameras were only recently introduced in 1932.  hmm.    CSC or Compact System Camera is probably the best category description to date, although I am fond of the old RFF desigation of  CEVIL  indicating Compact Electronic Viewfidner Interchangeable Lens.   This forum is here at RFF because via adapters these cameras offer an inexpensive way to use rangefinder lenses on digital cameras -- in addition of just about every 35mm SLR lens you can think of.  All  offer the photo enthusiast an incredible array of adopted lenses which was not possible before these new digital formats.   This group continues to grow in popularity and new camera models!

Ricoh Theta

This is a new camera that has been presented without any aparent impact in public opinion.
All the reviews were coincident: they do not give a cent for it!
But I think this is a revolutionary camera, and a milestone in panoramic photography.
Perhaps the mistake of Ricoh was targeting it to the entertainment market, and specifically to the smart phone gadgets market.
In my opinion it should be improved and relaunched as a pro camera, with at least 32MPixels, and it will be unbetable!
Well, it will be a matter of time...
We will see

i ran an rff search on the theta and only came up with this thread! this is a really fun camera for making images to be viewed online, my brother often uses one at family functions. my concern is whether the images will be viewable in the future if ricoh stops supporting the online gallery, but my brother seems to think there are third party apps being developed which will allow viewing of the images forever.

it's not an art camera, but it's good photographic fun. according to my brother though, if you want to print a capture the image quality is only point and shoot level.

try dragging the image around:
