Ricoh has today announced another new camera, the entry-level point-and-shoot Caplio RR530. The five megapixel compact will go on sale in October for £129.99. The silver-colored compact offers a 3x optical zoom (32 - 96 mm), four scene modes and a 1.8-inch LCD screen. There's also the ubiquitous movie function and a 6cm macro mode. It takes standard double A batteries and images are stored on to SD card. Ricoh points out that the RR530 has a 'handy' 12MB (woo hoo!) so you can shoot out of the box, but we suggest budgeting for a spare memory card.
