Ricoh R5 Caplio Digital Camera with 7-megapixel and 7x Zoom

The new Caplio R5 digital camera features a 7.1x optical wide zoon lens, CCD-shift image stabilization and a broad new image-processing engine.  The new Smooth Imaging Engine II should reduce noise, improve performance, and yield a higher sensitivity of ISO1600 at full resolution.  There’s also the standard 2.5-inch LCD display, improved battery life VGA 30fps video recording at 640×480 resolution, and vibration correction function that should improve the quality of the images.  There’s no support for SDHC.  The Caplio R5 is only available in Japan for $350.
