Someone has taken a Ricoh Theta camera to bits.

It's a 360 degree spherical camera. Some interesting surprises in there. Some fairly off the shelf components, as well as some interesting arrangements around the lens and image sensors.

I have one of these. Bought it second hand, and it's rather good (if a little mobile phone in image quality at times), but costly new IMO. Newer models are, apparently, better and shoot video too.

Since this tear down, there are people taking their Theta S models apart and replacing the MicroSD card with a higher capacity one. Some are even cutting little slots so they can access the card without taking the cameras apart. It does seem odd that Ricoh don’t provide a slot for such a need. The memory supplied is pretty poor, especially when video comes into play.
