If you are using the Ricoh Theta desktop app, please do not update your Adobe AIR to version 24. There is an incompatibility between the Theta app and version 24 of AIR which will prevent you from viewing photos or videos.

FYI, I will be on vacation from Thursday (12/29) to Monday (1/2) and I won't have access to the Internet. I will schedule some posts on those days but I won't be able to respond to messages.
Next, I will be in Las Vegas for CES on January 4 and January 5, where I will be posting about the latest news on 360 cameras and VR. On those days, I might not be able to respond to messages right away either.
BTW if you will be at CES and would like to say hello, I will be at the Insta360 booth (LVCC, South Hall 2, #26608) at 3pm on Jan. 5.
P.S. If you're wondering how I took the shot above, here's the accessory I used!
