Tethered shooting with the Ricoh Theta S or Theta SC
You can now use your Ricoh Theta S or Theta SC to shoot tethered with photos and videos downloaded to your desktop using Theta S Control, a free app for Windows.
Theta S Control is an app for Windows (desktop, mobile, and holographic) that allows you to control the Ricoh Theta S or Theta SC from your desktop or Windows phone. Among the functions supported are:
- Get preview thumbnails and download camera files to your device
- Get camera state and info
- Remote photo shutter
- Remote video shutter
- Live stream view
- Option to sync time and gps information from your device to camera
- Silent shutter option
Unlike conventional tethering via USB cable, Theta S Control uses Wi-Fi, i.e., your PC connects wirelessly to the Theta's Wi-Fi signal.
Theta S Control is available for free download from the Microsoft Windows store.
