This is a great idea but how come there is such a huge gap between this lens and the next? The widest lens Ricoh has is a 28. Why not have a 20mm or a 16mm as well? They have them in dash cams.
And you don’t need wifi with this, just a delay so you can click the button and get out of the way or hold it up on a monopod to get your fingers out of the way.


Sure, it’s a nice idea, and I think Ricoh may release it just for a try, after all, most today’s cameras have the ability to take panoramas.
