Accessorizing your Ricoh Theta camera for the everyday photographer


In the rapidly evolving world of photography, versatility is key. With the advent of 360-degree cameras like our Ricoh Theta series, photographers are presented with unprecedented opportunities to capture immersive experiences. 

However, to truly unlock the potential of your Ricoh Theta camera, accessorizing becomes essential. In this article, we'll explore the range of accessories available on the Ricoh Theta website and how they can enhance your everyday photography endeavors.

1 - Tripods, standpods and sticks

In the realm of 360-degree photography, stability is paramount. Any slight movement or shake can distort the final image, resulting in a less-than-optimal viewing experience for the audience. Tripods, stand weight, and standpods serve as the foundation for steady shots, allowing photographers to capture immersive content with precision and clarity.


Utilizing tripods for stability:
Ricoh Theta offers a variety of tripod options catering to different shooting scenarios. These tripods will enable you to greatly improve the stability of your photo or video shots for optimum quality.


Standpods for added flexibility:

In addition to tripods, Ricoh Theta also provides Standpods, a versatile accessory that combines the stability of a tripod with the flexibility of a handheld grip.

The Standpod features extendable legs that can be adjusted to various angles, allowing photographers to stabilize their shots on uneven terrain or elevate their camera for overhead captures.
With its compact and lightweight design, the Standpod offers portability without compromising stability, making it an essential tool for on-the-go photographers.

Our tripods are compatible with all RICOH THETA cameras. You can check out them here:

Cases and protective accessories play a vital role in safeguarding your investment and ensuring that your camera remains in optimal condition throughout its lifespan.

    That’s the reason why we offer a range of cases and protective accessories specifically designed to shield your camera from dust, scratches, moisture, and impact. These accessories provide an extra layer of defense, minimizing the risk of damage during transportation, storage, or shooting in challenging conditions.
    By investing in quality cases and protection, photographers can maintain the integrity of their equipment and continue capturing immersive content with peace of mind.

    Lenses play a significant role in determining the overall image quality and creative potential of our cameras. As you can see, our lenses are designed to enhance the capabilities of these cameras, offering photographers greater control over their compositions, visual aesthetics, and storytelling techniques. 


    Protecting your investment with lens caps

    Lens caps serve as the first line of defense against dust, dirt, moisture, and scratches that can compromise the clarity and functionality of your Ricoh Theta camera's lenses. 


    By securely covering the lenses when not in use, lens caps help prevent debris from accumulating on the glass surfaces, ensuring pristine image quality and prolonging the lifespan of your camera.


    4. Remote Controls

    Remote controls offer photographers the flexibility and convenience to trigger shots, adjust settings, and navigate menus without physically interacting with the camera. This not only streamlines the shooting process but also opens up new creative possibilities, especially in challenging or remote shooting environments.


    Wireless freedom

    Remote controls eliminate the need for direct physical contact with the camera, allowing photographers to operate their Ricoh Theta devices from a distance.
    Whether you're capturing group selfies, action shots, or time-lapse sequences, wireless remote controls offer unparalleled convenience and versatility, enabling photographers to experiment with different shooting angles and perspectives without constraints.

    One standout example of a remote control for Ricoh Theta cameras is the Ricoh Theta TR-1 remote control
