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

Aug 25, 2006

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 640x480 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.
