RICOH recently released firmware 1.10.1 for the THETA X.
The official release notes from RICOH indicate these changes.
The “improved shutter time lag” refers to the time between the shutter button press and the camera taking a picture. The lag can cause problems when a person is taking a virtual tours and moves the monopod to the next position soon after pressing the shutter button. This can result in blurry images.
The AI Auto setting refers to the feature shown in this video.
From my independent tests, one of the improvements is in how the 8K video API works. Previously, there were some limitations starting and stopping the 8K video with the API. Now, it appears to be working smoothly.
