*1      The case cannot be used for shooting underwater. The case is waterproof when no USB cable is connected and all openings where the USB cable passes through are closed.

*2      Shooting with the case attached will result in a lower image quality than shooting without the case.

*3      When a USB cable is connected, water droplets and dust may enter from the USB cable connection point.

*4      It is not guaranteed that the camera will work correctly when using a USB cable other than the one provided with the product.

*5      When performing live streaming with RICOH THETA X with the case attached, use the latest firmware for RICOH THETA X and set “Auto switching to live streaming” to ON.

*6      The USB cable provided with RICOH THETA SC2 cannot be used because it has a ferrite core that interferes with the opening where the cable passes through.
