Ricoh has recently announced the release of the Caplio RX, a slim wide-angle 28mm digital camera that commands the worlds fastest shutter response time at only 0.12 seconds and quick start-up time. The Caplio RX is quicker, slimmer, lighter and even easier to use than its wide-angle lens predecessor the Caplio G4wide. The Caplio RXs has a 3.24-megapixel CCD and a 3.6x optical zoom.
Ricoh has today announced the Caplio G4wide digital camera. As with the standard G4 it is a 3.24-megapixel, 3x optical zoom but the Caplio G4wide has a newly developed compact lens and exceptional speed. The lens arrangement comprises three lenses, one of which is a concave Meniscus aspherical lens made of low-dispersion glass with a high refractive index.
Ricoh Japan has today announced yet another variation of the RDC-i700, the RDC-i700 model G. This one supports the CFGPS2 Compact Flash GPS card from I-O Data. When fitted fitted into the camera the GPS card enables it to record the exact location at which each image is taken (recorded into the image file header). It's not yet clear if this model is destined for worldwide release or just for the domestic Japan market. The RDC-i700 which is the basis for this camera is a three megapixel three times optical zoom digital camera which has both Compact Flash Type II and PCMCIA slots. The RDC-i700 model G is priced at 208,000 YEN (approx. US$ 1800).
Ricoh has today announced the Caplio G3, a three megapixel, three times optical zoom digital camera with SD/MMC storage (and 8 MB of internal storage). The big selling point of the Caplio G3 is (Ricoh's claim) the fastest focusing speed and shutter lag of any digital camera in this class. The G3 will be available in three variations: the base G3 (black, plastic body), G3 model M (black, magnesium body), G3 model S (silver, plastic body, supplied voice software). Personally I think it's a little confusing for Ricoh to choose a product name identical to Canon's well known PowerShot G3.
Ricoh Japan has announced a new waterproof digital camera, the Caplio 300G. This new model has a 3.34 megapixel CCD (2048 x 1536 max image size) and a three times optical zoom (35-105mm equiv.) F2.6-4.7 lens. The 300G is is not only waterproof but also dustproof, and impact resistant and so should appeal to sporty types. The camera isn't submersable but does carry a JIS grade of 7 which means it's rain / splash proof but not suitable for use underwater.
Comdex 2001: Ricoh USA has today announced the 4 megapixel Caplio RR1. The Caplio (which is very similar in design to the RDC-5/7xx series) carries a unique 'flat' design with a fold-up LCD screen, 3x optical zoom lens and is supplied with a total of 72 MB of storage (8 MB internal, 64 MB flash).
